I really do love doing ‘ugly’ looks. They’re so fun to do! Of course this isn’t the kind of look you’d wear to meet your boyfriends parents but for anyone in the theatre or if you’re into body painting you I think this one is right up your alley.
I got the idea for this one from Goya’s black paintings
It’s a completely different colour pallet to what Goya used but that twisted, emaciated roughly painted look was something I really wanted to try and imitate.
Now for different skin tones you will need to change the colours used. The red shade is probably the only thing that will stay the same no matter the skin tone. If you have a darker skin tone do not used white!
The aim is to use a colour which is an extremely sickly pale version of your skin tone
Personally I prefer using face paints for this look because it emulates that painted look, but if makeup is all you have to hand then you can absolutely use that. Only one more video left for this series now, and then onto the next series! :D
