Follow These Steps to Create this Look
Makeup: We have chosen to “age” our model a bit with makeup. This step is optional, but the how-tos follow.
Step One: Apply a foundation to the face using a damp sponge. For our look, we have used Mehron Cream Makeup in Light Beige (#DD411).
Step Two: The next phase of the makeup application will involve “aging” the face through the use of makeup. To create the effect of wrinkles and shadows on the face, we will be using the Old Age Stack (#CSCC013), which contains all the colors you need to create a very compelling and aged look. Begin the aging process with the tan color in the old age stack. Using this tan color and a brush, apply the color onto the lines and wrinkles on the face. For our Hillary look, we have emphasized the under eye circles, the frown lines, the jowls, etc. An excellent way to “find” the best places to apply wrinkles is to scrunch up your face and use your own wrinkle lines as a guide.
Step Three: Once you are happy with the contours, lines and wrinkles you’ve applied to your face, the next step is to highlight these areas with a highlight color. This step will make the shaded areas, and wrinkles appear darker and give them more emphasis. Apply the highlight (the light yellow shade in the old age stack) just underneath the wrinkles and along the bridge of the nose and above the jowls. Experiment with the color to create the effect you want. Blend the colors gently with a sponge for a more natural appearance.
Step Four: Older folks have more pink in their skin. You can create the look of this tone by using the pink color in the old age stack. Sponge it gently on the cheek area or any other place on the face you want to add a little redness.
Step Five: If desired, using the darker brown color in the old age stack, add some “crows feet” or other stronger wrinkle lines.
Step Six: Finish off the aging makeup with a light dusting of setting powder. We have used Colorset Powder, #DD321.
Step Seven: Next, we have added a bit of eye makeup to our Hillary. We have used Shadoliner in a warm brown shade (#DD343) and then lined her eyes with a black liner pencil. (#DE02) The eye look is finished off with a set of false eyelashes. (#EA80)
Step Eight: Finally, add some lip color to the lips. We have used Mehron’s LIP Cream in Natural, #DD103.
Clothing & Accessories: We have chosen to “age” our model a bit with makeup. This step is optional, but the how-tos follow.
