Tonight Michelle, our Hair and Makeup designer, gave Tucker and another actor a tutorial on basic stage makeup. I tagged along for the ride, just to see what it was like. All I can say is that I learned a LOT about how makeup is used and more importantly, why.
Actually, that isn't true. I can say more than that.
The tutorial started out with an explanation of everything in the famous "Actor's Makeup Kit" that every actor needs to purchase. The contents are very interesting, and include:
- liquid latex (face glue)
- Mint-flavored stage blood
- Brushes!! Powder-puffs!
- Spirit gum (more face glue)
- Hair mascara (for touches of gray hair)
- Scar wax
