Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to get a look like a homeless man. So homeless men really don't get many, much sleep and they also aren't very clean so we're just going to make it look like he doesn't have a lot of sleep and make him look dirty. So we're going to start by going underneath the eyes with a pretty gnarly green color and we're just going to go in and make him look sallow, that's what the point of this green is for, just make sure you blend. It doesn't have to be too exaggerated, it's not going to look like a creature, but he just want's to look like he's sleep deprived and a little malnourished. So essentially it's supposed to be underneath the eyes and maybe a little bit up here, just on the contours of the face and then after that we're going to add some dirt to him. The best way to achieve this just to go in with a brown eyeshadow, with a sponge, a damp sponge works best and just place that dirt on his face and just keep placing. You can alternate from sponge to brush and really just hit everywhere, it doesn't need to look pretty obviously just where ever dirt might land, it collects in the crevasses of the nose, definitely on the ends, up underneath the eyes and then of course on the forehead. Crevasses of the nose again, don't make it too symmetrical, it doesn't have to be a mirror image of each other, just think sallow and dirty. Alright now that we have our dirt going on homeless men are quite sweaty because they don't shower so we're going to add a little bit of sweat which is our glycerine, sponge or fingers it doesn't matter, we're definitely going to go on the forehead where we normally sweat, down the nose and on the T zone. And to top it all off we're just going to use that sallow green color again and go along the lips, these lips aren't hydrated they're just kind of dead, dirty like the rest of him. I'm Erin Hendley and I just showed you how to do homeless man makeup.
