When you work on a show in a theater each actor is given a specific ‘station’ to get ready at. You can put your belongings in this station. Any of the makeup and hair supplies that you will be using for the show and anything else you will need. Each show can be very different and may require a completely different look for the part that you are playing. For this summer working in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, my look has been pretty and nothing too dramatic! Here are some of the products I have been using to complete my look and keep my Station Situation filled with everything that I need!
Makeup Look (Insert Pic)
Rodan + Fields Serum
Beach Bum Chapstick
Elf Cosmetics Concealer
Maybelline Matte + Poreless Foundation
Neutrogena Shine Control Powder (bake)
Sonia Kashuk Bronzer
Pulse Cosmetics Blush
Anastasia Glow Studio Kit
MAC Cosmetics Nutcracker Sweet Pallette (shimmer light pink and white for inside eye and under eyebrow. Light brown crease across entire eyelid and darker brown in corners and under eye
Frankie Rose Cosmetics Liquid Black Eyeliner winged on top. Tight lined on bottom
Maybelline Pushup Mascara in Black (Love this wand, it is super tiny and wings out on the sides to really separate your lashes.
Ardell “Wispies” lashes and KISS strip lash adhesive with Aloe – These are the best lashes for the stage that I am on. Our theater only holds about 140-150 audience members and the stage is extremely close to the audience members. This was something that I was not used to at first, but with these wispies lashes it is a more natural look but still adds focus on my eyes!
MAC Longwear Lip Stick in bright Pink
LipSense Rose Lip Gloss
Now that you have the products I have been using try and mess with this look. I am attaching as many pictures as possible so you can see how my look has changed slightly over the 36 show run. Some days I like my wings longer than others, sometimes my highlight is popping in all of the ways! Its fun and Tintin is a blast!
