Santa Claus is very jolly soul. If you read a lot of rhythms and stories about him, he has a lot of red going on on his face. If your face is not quite up to the challenge, it's time to add in some makeup. Basically, take a small makeup brush and some red makeup paint. If you have that leftover from Halloween that's great. You can also buy it year round at a lot of costume stores. What we're going to do is basically we're going to add a little bit of red highlights to a couple of areas. First off, the tip of his nose. Oh my goodness. It's super red. It's chapped. Jolly old Saint Nick right here. Make sure not to over do it. We're going to be blending in the red into the name normal nose. You're basically going to look like you're super flushed or you just have an extra dose of the Christmas spirit because you're jolly old Saint Nick. Up over the nose are so you look pretty red and it really blends in. It should not red, so much as a flushed pink. You can also add a couple highlights underneath each eye. Again, blend in for maximum effect. We're looking to make him look flushed and merry and jolly, and not make him look like he has red circles underneath his eyes. Definitely, blend to maximum effect underneath the eye area and the nose. In general, that's about all I recommend. It's about most of what you can see anyway in this area of skin. Some people do on top of the eyelids, but that's only if you don't have a lot of hair hanging down like we do now.
