If you can find a sympathetic lady behind the makeup counter they can advise you as to what color foundation to wear. Foundation smoothed on with a sponge (little tiny ones made specially for this purpose) This gives your skin tone an overall even tone. The other secret is to powder... (not white powder though) or that would offset all your previous hard work when you've applied foundation. You can buy skin tone powder, these usually come with their own Powder puffs or sponges. It will stay on for hours and hours. These products are available everywhere including supermarkets. If you hesitate asking for advice most of the products will recommend what your skin tone should be and what product to use. The rule of thumb is never go 2 shades darker.. even one might look unnatural as your neck would look rather pale. The price range is aprox 5 dollars for each of these products.. however if you buy more expensive lines... it can be as expensive as $25. dollars. Another option is to go to a theatrical store, most carry stage makeup and my experience is they are always helpful with any questions. I worked on a pilot project for a kids tv show and the producers allowed me to do my own makeup. I just bought inexpensive products like I've mentioned in the paragraph above.. (make sure you powder however!) as this sets the makeup. My makeup lasted 12 hrs under hot camera lights, and no need for touch ups but for the occasional powder.. so should work fine for a stage show. Lastly, another option is to see if there is a school for makeup artist in your area. One of my friends took a course like this and while she does more special effects type of makeup they are trained for all types of things. They are always looking for volunteers to try out their recently learned skills. May be worth looking into. Good luck! If any of you need any questions answered feel free to pm me. :) Just realized I've told you how to put it on.. equally important to know how to take it off. :) Just apply cold cream and wipe off with a facial tissue. You shouldn't have a problem. :wavey: [/quote]
