Mime Makeup Tutorial

mime makeup Mime makeup is a very popular stage character makeup. Almost everyone at one or another point of their lives has tried copying a mime artist. Many of us may have also tried mime face painting with talcum powder mixed with water to create a white mime face.

Actual stage mime makeup is done with white face paints.  And these paints are definitely not good for your skin and should be avoided. So today we’ll show you an innovative way to do a temporary white mime face which will not be harmful to your beautiful skin. But remember don’t expect this makeup to last for very long on the face since with minutes passing by, it will get drier and drier and will start to crack. But nevertheless this is good for a temporary costume party or stage appearance of about 1 hour to 1 and a half hours.

Use the lipstick with the help of the lip brush dipped in the lotion. This is important because the lips are covered with talcum powder and foundation mixture which will not allow you to apply lipstick perfectly on its own.
