I saw this post from Megan and was pretty much like . I would never have thought to plan out a makeup look with a face chart, but now I’m wondering if I’m living alone over here in my face chart-less world. Do you use face charts?
- What’s a face chart?
- I know what they are, but I’ve never used one. (I thought they were just for pros!)
- I use them sometimes… like if I have a big event coming up and I want to plan my look.
- I use them all the time!
Here’s the post that got my wheels turning:
I can only say I know what they are since I read Megan’s post earlier today. Ha ha. I want to play with them now.
I’ve used them if I’m designing something super duper elaborate and/or for someone else, but outside of college stage makeup classes I don’t generally bother! They can be handy but they’re more effort than they’re worth most of the time
Interesting! I can see that. It makes a lot of sense to use them for stage makeup or film, any situation really where you need to recreate the same look multiple times.
Very helpful when you’re working with people who don’t typically wear makeup!
But for me personally I just smack colors onto my face until I’m happy with the result, get bored, or run out of time
In college I did my makeup to wake myself up. So if my look was super elaborate you knew it was gonna be a long day because I was not at all awake in the morning
