Personalized Face Charts
Hello! It’s only been WEEKS since I’ve updated this, thank you gross sickness for making me want absolutely NOTHING to do with makeup!
Aaaaanyways, I wanted to show you guys this cool thing we did in my makeup class. Our teacher wanted us to have personalized facecharts so that we knew how a look would transfer onto our faces instead of using the standard face chart, so she took pictures of each of us and then basically edited them down to an outline so we could do charts on our faces. My chart didn’t exactly come out so well (I had no nose or mouth, didn’t really work!) So I decided to just make my own using a random picture I had taken when I was trying to take pictures for a look.
I took this to photoshop and googled tutorials on how to make a picture into a sketch. I finally ended up mainly using the photocopy filter and then erasing any extra lines or shading I didn’t need. That got me to this!
To make the actual chart, I just dragged the image onto Powerpoint and then created a table with different areas of makeup (base, shadow, highlight, etc) and printed it out on watercolor paper. The reason I used watercolor paper is because it is textured and helps hold the color on much better than printer paper. Oh yeah, I also use my makeup and brushes to do the face charts, I find it muuuch much easier than colored pencils or the like!
If you don’t have Photoshop, you can always google to find websites that will make your image a sketch for you. I used one here to make this image:
Not bad, just a little light. If you darkened it up and erased all the extra marks and shading on the skin, it would work just fine!
If you decide to do this show me! I’d love to see how yours comes out!! :)
