Are you part of our legendary 21-Day Video Challenge? Do you show up in front of the camera feeling nervous and insecure? You want to know what helped me get over that?
Makeup! Yes, I discovered that when I felt good about myself, I projected that in my videos! And wearing good makeup makes me feel really happy and boosts my confidence. There’s a reason why every actor, actress, and talk show host does the same! Yes, even the men!
And here’s the thing: stage makeup is different from everyday makeup. When you’re creating videos, a good rule of thumb is: more is better. It looks good on camera and when you add a pop of color to your look, your audience will notice, and you’ll stop the scroll! How amazing is that?
Are you curious to find out how I do my signature video makeup, and how you can elevate your look and bring your best self forward? That’s exactly what I’ll show you inside the training today! Excited? Let’s get started!
Basic Stage Makeup Tutorial: How to Elevate Your Look
For this training, I brought in a very special guest — one of my dearest friends and a BRILLIANT makeup artist, Shokoufeh Safavi! Shokoufeh has been crushing the makeup and cosmetics industry for about 6 years, and today, she’ll share her GENIUS with us!
Levels of Makeup Application
Did you know that makeup application comes in at 3 different levels? When you know which level you are, it’s easier to know how you can elevate your look! So let’s talk about them!
Level 1: Little to no makeup
You feel comfortable going out of the house with a clear face, and every now and then, you may put on a little mascara.
Level 2: Medium makeup
Eyeliner, mascara, and the occasional lipstick are your go-to products. Whatever the combination, you like to get ready before you present yourself to the world.
Level 3: A little extra sparkle
That’s my kind of makeup! I know it’s not for everyone, but I just love the way I feel when I put on a little extra glam!
So how can you elevate your look?
Be YOU times 2 with your makeup, as well as with your energy! That’s the key to any successful video!
So now that we have all that cleared and out of the way, let’s dive deeper into how you can turn my day makeup into stage makeup!
Step #1: Brightening of the Under-eye
Use a highlighter that’s a shade or two lighter than your foundation. Take a flat brush and use what we call the “triangle method”.
Draw a triangle under your eyes and fill it in. Then press the product into your undereye and blend it in. It will give you an instant lift and it will make your eyes look amazing, especially on camera!
Step #2: Foundation
Apply your favorite foundation with a big brush. Try to stay away from what you just did under your eyes. Stipple the makeup — that will even out your skin tone.
PRO Tip: Use a setting (also called “translucent”) powder, so your makeup will last longer!
Step #3: Bronzer and Blush
Or it can be blush and bronzer — it’s up to you!
Take a little blush and dab it into your hand, so you don’t put too much product on your face. Then smile and apply the blush on the apple of your cheek. And from then on, you can build up and make it as strong as you’d like!
Next, it’s time for the bronzer! Pick a color that’s a shade darker than your foundation. Apply it from the top of your forehead, down to the middle of your cheek, so it forms a nice, big “C”! Then turn that “C” into a “3”, and bring the brush down to the base of your jawline.
Ta-da! Your basic stage make up is now complete!
To complete your look, use a little highlighter where the light hits your face. Those are the high points: forehead, cheekbones, top of your nose, and chin.
Remember: always blend your makeup!
And the final result is A-mazing! Is Shokoufeh the bomb dot com or what?!
