Old Man Make Up Tutorial! *using what you have*

Share it with your friends Like


Sorry for the LONG video and the terrible fan noise. I was learning a lot when I did this video… The video is choppy because I cut out everything I felt wasn’t absolutely needed.

This is just makeup for a youtube video or a costume. I wouldn’t use this on a professional film. You could get really lazy with it and just draw the wrinkles and skip the foundation and “sun spots” part if you want.

Here are the products I used:

-2 bobby pins and a elastic hair tie to secure my hair. Use more bobby pins if needed.

-Straw hat I found at the dollar store

-Stila illuminating foundation (I would use your heaviest foundation, so any creme or liquid is best)

-CoverGirl liquid concealer

-Sephora Blockbuster palette from 2010 Holiday Collection. I used a purple-red lip color for the under eyes and a brownish red lip color for the “sun spots”. You can use any purplish or brownish eyeliner or lip color for this effect. Blend until it looks good.

-Maybelline medium eyebrow kit

-Kat Von D eyebrow brush (from Sephora, came in a 5 pack of brushes)

-Sephora #41 angled foundation brush used to apply the liquid foundation

-no name flat bronzer brush used to show how to shadow the cheeks.

-Bare Minerals Fairy Light (just use one shade lighter than your skin color) foundation and Bare Minerals foundation brush to apply top coat of powder.

Shouldve blended the harsh edges for the other lines, but nonetheless great tutorial.

you've made a lot of generalizations.  I wonder how you will look when you're old because you will get there

My brother is in a play and he needs old man makeup, I attempted it after remember all I learned from a class 4 years ago, and it didn't go good. I am going to retry in a couple days using what I learned from this x
