Understanding Makeup Face Charts

Follow these tips for understanding makeup face charts

Unless you are a trained makeup artist or professional, chances are you may not know what makeup face charts are or how to use them. To sum it up for you, a makeup face chart is used by makeup artists to test out or plan a look. They are also used to record a look that has been tried on someone else, like for a photo shoot or bridal trial. Makeup face charts are useful to have because they help you keep track of all the different products and color combinations that were used, in the event that you wish to recreate the look again in the future. Read 10 Secrets I Learned At Makeup Artist School for a list of tips and tricks straight from the pros.

Makeup face charts come on a special type of paper that you can apply makeup directly to, so you want to treat the test face on the paper as an actual person, going through all the steps of applying primer and so forth. Now you can let your creativity soar and experiment by playing around with bronzer, blush, eye colors and lip colors. Spray over the entire look with hairspray once you are finished in order to preserve the look. You can also visit the website for MAC Cosmetics to download many different makeup face charts (blank ones to create your own looks and predesigned ones for look you want to try).

There is no face chart to download from MAC website (USA). I think you may download it off google image under the search term "empty makeup face chart".
