Face makeup

Postby consumer » Wed Sep 03, 2003 6:59 pm

This year at the burn (and in my life) was the first time I've used full face make-up. I actually shaved my entire head and beard skin-bald out on the playa and then completely covered my head in white clown make up one night, and all blue body-type paint the next. Compared to masks/helmets/hats that I've made in previous years, this is a lot easier to deal with. It felt as though I had nothing on.

It comes off very easily with just water if you buy the pro-stuff from a costume shop.

I was browsing around at Michael's Art Supply in Oakland and found some very affordable black light face/body paint. it was easy to apply, came off easily with baby wipes and looked great! Highly recommended.

I have always thought that some small stencils would really expediate face & body painting & give you that detail that so many have trouble sitting still for.

I wonder if you could use those paper stencils that mehndi artists use. That might be worth an experiment.
I often heard the sorrel nag (who always loved me) crying out, ..."Take care of thyself, gentle Yahoo."
