Hello, my name is Keegan Hitchcock from Body Art By Keegan and we're here from Fort Lauderdale at One Model Place Studios. In this clip, we're going to talk about types of theatrical makeup. First necessity would be your foundations. You're going to want all different types of colors all different ranges. You want from all the way to lightest to the darkest. Pink tones and yellow tones are what people are most of the time. So, you can also get foundations in the stick form as well and once you have your foundation on, you are definitely going to need to power them. Translucent power is helpful just with a power puff or a brush. You can brush that on and some times if that's not okay if someone has a little bit more reddish skin, we use the yellow power as well. Once you get into the more creative things, you can also use Stella cream base makeup like your foundation different colors. These are going to be for your characters for creatures or some bruises things like that and as well those come in sticks too and if you're not going to have really, really intense look, you can go with same idea these are water base face paints. You're going to get the same thing. You will just have to activate them with water. the other ones, you kind of just brush on. Nothing else is needed. These you will need to activate with water. Then you get a little more creative, you got your stage blood. You got your lip colors palettes all different colors. Every body face has different colorations. You're going to need pinker, redder, more purple so make sure you have a nice range of that stuff. Along with your regular mascara, you may even want to add lashes but that's extra if you want to and that is theatrical makeup. Thanks for watching. This is Keegan.
