How to do doll makeup-VIDEO!
« on: September 28, 2011, 05:52:49 AM »
This is the last of the DolLApalooza videos that I have.

Bronwen was kind enough to do a short seminar on how to apply makeup to a doll.

Enjoy!

Bronwen, you have such a wonderful voice. I "hear" it with every post...

Great video Mahtek.

These are wonderful resources that span all brands.

Thanks to everyone who put these projects together.

What treasures;D

Awesome work Mahtek, capturing these wonderful video tutorials.  Also appreciate some of the people getting better information (like eye liner type, recommended alcohol type, etc.) through some Q & A..  ::)

One recommendation I suggest (if it can be pre-planned or captured after the video) is a brief summary listed or visually shown of materials used and suggested sources if it's a specialty item.  For instance some of the brushes used maybe various sized soft, flat sable artist brushes.  If something like that is recommended, would be nice to know.  My thinking is in some tutorial instructions, a list of items needed is shown and it helps the Do-It-Yourselfer prepare with the right tools and materials.

Again great work, Mahtek.  Love Bronwen's accent!  ...and now we know where she keeps her Jelly Belly stash!

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad that you enjoyed it!

I need to give Belshanar credit for setting up the camera and starting the video rolling. I got sidetracked, and had he not stepped up to the plate the beginning portion would have been lost.

Simon,

Yes, an inventory and description of everything used is a great idea. I've done that in the past for repair tutorials, but I'm still winging it with the videos. Perhaps Bronwen would be so kind as to post what she used on this thread. I hope to do better for each new video as they come.

Thank Mahtek fr posting the video.

Thanks to you Bronwen for the tips how to apply the makeup. So first start with light colors then work your way with darker colors.

Can you maybe list the type of brushes and softness that you recommend for using. Are those just cheap makeup from a Drugstore?
What was that color for her lips you where using looks so natural and nice?

Tools:
  • Cotton balls (sometimes cut in half)
  • Pointed Q-tips. These are hard to find. Try professional make up stores
  • Variety of make up brushes. For eyes I prefer a dense, short, rounded shadow brush (sometimes called a blending brush) in a large size and a small size. I got them years ago so I don't know the brand or where they come from. I have not been able to find them again.
  • I use a longer, soft sable make up brush that I either got at a trade show or a make up supply store to blend and brush loose make up when I put on small amounts of translucent powder. I do not use colors on the sable brush.
  • A large, fat, dense powder brush which I think I got at a trade show plus a smaller version for blush.

I have A LOT of brushes ranging from paint brushes to expensive make up brushes; some came out of packs from Target and others were individually selected. I use my favorite brushes all the time and never use the others. It's a question of preference. You just have to try them out to find what you like. I will be VERY sad if my brushes die.

Materials:
  • 99% alcohol or as close as you can get
  • Liquid eyeliner with brush tip - any brand from any store that sells make up
  • Compressed powder eye shadow for eyes, cheeks and lips - also any brand works and any colors you find that you like
  • Translucent loose powder - can be purchased anywhere make up is sold. Get the smallest tub you can, it lasts forever.

I googled "pointed cotton swab"...  Lots of results.

They look cheap and plentiful.

These are the ones I use. Compared to regular cotton swabs from Wal-Mart, I think $4.30 for 120pcs is pretty expensive... I use the regular cheapo Wal-Mart ones as well, they just don't get into the creases and small areas as well. There are also extra tiny pointed ones I get from a make up supply place. They're about $2 per 30pcs.

  8) Thank You Bronwen! 8)

In my personal opinion.....'I find your 'accent' as you call it'; "Fascinating & Alluring!"
Funny, I get my stuff @ dollar stores (L.A Colors is one of them,  ^-^)
As a norm...I do not put alot of makeup on Val ( never have realy cared for it on any ladies I've been with).  A little is kewl, but too much is not appealing to me. Nevertheless, you do make this appealing. ( Nice Vid & other combinations seen are 'nice' :) )
What is the proper way to apply blush? I have never done it. (curious)

Once again, 'Thank You!'  'Best Wishes 2 Matt & Yourself' (Bronwen)
