Old Age Stage Makeup Tutorials

It’s surprising how many shows end up having at least one character in aged makeup, so I thought I’d post a few tutorials showing old age stage makeup, including the last one which shows a simple technique for making the hair look gray.  They each show the techniques slightly different–some are better at showing the design, some emphasize product, and some are better at showing the technique.  When learning anything, it’s often helpful to get a few different opinions, so take a look and then go for it.  The key is using your actor’s own wrinkles as the design and then blending the shadows and highlights. The process is basically the same for males and females.

Please comment below or on my Facebook Page, The Costume Resource, if you need costume or hair and make-up help with a specific show you are doing.  I’d love to help out!
