Do you remember the scene from Gimme Gimme Gimme where wannabe actor- Thomas Thessolunious ‘Tom’ Farrell- decides that he can do a better job of his theatrical make up for his latest role in ‘Salmon’ – a surreal Japanese play starring ‘Tom Cruise?’ He removed his professionally-applied theatrical make up in a single flourish with a baby wipe and reapplied his version of ‘theatrical make up’ to replace it. He used ruby-red rouge lipstick to make two identical circular shapes on his cheeks; peacock blue eye shadow on his eyelids to open widen his gaze and, to attract the audience’s attention to his expressive eyes; Tom continued to apply a thick brown substance to the corners of his eyes which if anything, gave the illusion of a man who’d failed to sleep for over a month!
If you are directing or starring in a stage show, take heed from Tom’s experience of self-applying theatrical make up and learn from his mistakes. To apply theatrical make up, like filling a tooth, cutting someone’s hair or treating someone’s cat for worms; is a skill and the supply of theatrical make up upon completion of a stage make up qualification, must be of a superior standard to the make up you find on the counters at Boots should it be effective.
