Principal boy makeup
Makeup for Principal Boy
Commercial pantomimes may have abandoned the Principal Boy in favour of male heroes, but she still stars supreme in many excellent amateur shows
My suggestions for Principal Boy are aimed at a strong female character makeup
- I suggest a slightly darker base than usual to strengthen the face
- Eyebrows should be strong and shapely
- Lipstick should define the lips without false colour - 5-4 Bordeaux will do the trick
- Blusher can be high and angular to emphasise and strengthen the cheek bones
Use the brush to apply a thin layer of Eyebrow Fixer to the eyebrows. Use the brush to fix the hairs in the right direction. You can repeat the process several times, each time only using a little of the fixer.
Eyebrow fixer contains ethanol which needs careful use. Pleae read and follow the safety notes for products containing ethanol.
