Media Assessment: Tudor Period Makeup for Theatre

17 Apr

Today I did my Tudor for Theatre assessment, using the wig cage i created. This was my favourite bit and I loved crating the wig – though it did slightly make me want to go crazy at one point. I tried to use her natural hair to create a more natural look with the wig, keeping the hair well off the forehead to create a high appearance. The yellow feathers, whilst inspired by Elizabeth (the film) are way too yellow, they look quite comic. Though being for theatre, I suppose depending on the drama this could work, however, I don’t like them. I wanted to create a fan piece but could not find the fans in time, lesson: prepare in good time!

I got the dress from Ebay, it was £10 including postage but I doubt it will get used again! Maybe something to re-ebay. I think it works well though, it was originally used for a theatre company for period plays so it can’t be far wrong!

The makeup is satisfactory, I managed to find the balance between natural and theatre, carefully avoiding the realms of drag. I think I have improved with my theatre makeup skills, however I still have a long way to go. The only way I can improve this is through practice. I think I still need to pay even closer attention to how I am creating my period looks as I do think they still look quite modern and not ageing enough.

Since completing this assessment I have fallen in love with cream blusher! I love how it looks and blends. Obviously for day to day it may be more blended out and not as dark as this, but the technique is really enjoyable to do and i think it looks much more natural.

I think the lighting in these images is terrible and I need to stop shooting in the corridors – it just doesn’t work.

Fashion Assessment – Semester 1

4 Dec
Before and After Fashion Style Editing

Before and After Fashion Style Editing

Above is a picture of the makeup I did today for my fashion assessment. Overall I’m really happy with it. I decided to do a Fashion style edit to demonstrate how magazine images are often very different to the ‘real’ shot – it needs a bit of work but that all comes with practice 🙂

My original inspiration was game birds, and this evolved to the ocellated Turkey. I used an analogous colour theory, using oranges, yellows, greens and blues. Here are some images of the final work:

My First Face Chart

15 Oct

I just wrote a huge piece but my tablet deleted it!

Today I did my first face chart. I found a face shape I though was suitable to use for the rest of my year and adapted it so it had one eye closed, making it more suited for displaying the eye makeup. As an after thought, next time I shall also make her forehead smaller.

The makeup we were asked to do had to be based on cultures and countries. Due to being short of time before my next move, I chose to look at the simple yet versatile makeup of the Geisha.

I chose to create my face chart using a black fine liner, black sharpie and the makeup products directly. I found the application and blending process quite hard, however although the piece is not quite as I wanted in my head, it does display what I wish to do. Next to the image I have listed the products and brushes used to make creating the final piece easier and quicker to carry out.

During this semester, I am going to use a different media each time to create my charts, including CAD; enabling myself to find the materials most suited to my own method of working.

I will be carrying out the practical for this makeup tomorrow, so stay tuned!
