Step1: Shade under cheek bones, on temples and down the nose using a grey-brown greasepaint applied with a large brush or latext sponge.
For very dark skins, the grey-brown can be substitued for black.
Step 2: With a latext sponge or brush pale down the rest of the face using pale pink greasepaint, just skimming over the surface - the pink should be used sparingly on all skin tones.
Blend the grey brown and the pink together to soften edges of the base with a clean sponge.
Step 3: Draw in the wrinkle lines as shown in grey brown, using a fine brush.
Step 4: Mix some white greasepaint and some pink together and highlight around the dark lines as shown. Blend carefully, avoiding the dark wrinkle lines.
Step 5: Add some purple -red (carmine) around the eyes. Break up the lip line by drawing faint lines vertically around the mouth. Use a stipple sponge to add broken veins still in carmine on cheeks. Add some white hairs by using your finger to brush white greaspaint very lightly over the eyebrow.
Step 6: Set everything with translucent powder either with a large powder brush or puff.
Step 7: Apply your chosen wig.
Step 8: Add an appropriate accessory for a professional touch.
Step 1: Starting with the basic aging make-up as a foundation, add some red blusher then pencil over the top of the eyebrows with a black eyebrow pencil. Use a brush to apply bright blue shadow or greasepaint on the eyelids and colour up towards the brow bone.
Use the pencil to draw some heart beauty spots, and paint a cupid's bow mouth over the lips with lipstick or greasepaint.
Step 2: Black out a tooth with tooth enamel for comedy effect, and add a spectacular wig.
Step 3: Dress the wig with a suitable accessory for a touch of extra glamour!
