I asked :iconRollerBoyJeremy:RollerBoyjeremy if I could include her step-by-step process for drow makeup application as a blog entry for the group and she gracefully obliged. Her knowledge has made a great impact on how I do my own makeup for costuming and these tips have saved me from a lot of headache and heartache. For anyone doing drow makeup for the first time, the following process will help you avoid make-up meltdown! And trust me… we've all been there! Without further ado...
If you sweat A LOT, apply Mehron No sweat
You can use this like an astringent, then let it dry.
Using a patting method, apply your choice of cream makeup.
I like Ben Nye Clown series in black best, But Proface now has a cream that stands up really well. I had one of my sweaty guys wear it in a photo shoot all day and it held up amazingly.
