(Parental Supervision Needed)
When using home-made face make-up, it is very important to make sure you are not allergic. Be sure to test out on your arm before applying to your face.
- 1 teaspoon corn starch
- 1/2 tsp water
- 1/2 tsp cold cream
- Food coloring.
Combine starch and cold cream until well blended. Slowly add water and stir. Add the food coloring. Color depends on the desired color you are looking for.
Once you have your face make-up made. Wash your face and allow to dry completely.
Use your fingers to carefully spread on large areas and a small paint brush to paint designs or fill in smaller areas. Avoid getting in or too close to your eyes.
To remove, wash your face with warm water and gentle soap.
For facial hair, use the hair from an old stuffed toy or your hairbrush. You can attach with double stick tape or fake eyelash adhesive (test for skin reaction). You may be able to apply with corn syrup. Allow to dry.
For a good bruise, use a dark blue powder eyeshadow, charcoal or smokey gray power eyeshadow, and a green eyeshadow.
Blot the deep blue powder eyeshadow on desired location with a wet make-up brush. With your fingertips blot in the charcoal and gray eyeshadows. Touch up the edges with the green. Smudge the bruise to create desired look.
To get a good five O'clock shadow, apply used coffee grounds to your face. First, put a thin layer of petroleum jelly (Vasoline) on the area you want your stubble. Be sure you have no allergies to either the jelly or coffee. Carefully press small amounts of the coffee grinds onto your face. Allow to dry.
