I'd like to hear some feedback! COMMENTS > FAVS
The first 5 minutes is basically prepping. Application starts at 5:00
I did Zuko's scar for part of my stage-makeup final last semester and have had a few people ask me how I did it, so here's my tutorial!
don't worry, i'm not saying anything crucial. i'm a girl. i just talk a lot.
get your latex!
this is the fun part! to speed the drying up, you can use a hair dryer.
latex smells bad, so close your eye so the fumes don't get to you.
get your tissue. take a single layer and tear irregular pieces from it, make sure there are no smooth/straight edges.
when the latex is still wet, crumple the tissue and press it into the latex. then put another layer of latex on to and repeat as many times as you need to.
be sure not to get the tissue too close to the sketched line. you'll need that space for blending.
if you plan on re-using the scar, be sure to put more layers of latex on your skin BEFORE you start putting the tissue on.
the thicker it is, the greater chance it will come off in one piece.
cover all the tissue with latex to be sure parts don't peel off when putting makeup on. don't forget the edges!
make sure it's completely dry before you start coloring.
start with the base color, of course.
add darker color closer to your eye.
apply lighter color on top of the ridges and darker color under them. this will make them stand out more.
use browns to blend the scar into your skintone.
not crucial, but use liquid eyeliner on top of your eyelid for a cat-eye look.
NOT SHOWN: use setting powder to prevent the makeup from smearing. i took this off five minutes later, so i didn't do it.
LASTLY: if you plan on reusing the scar, be SURE to powder BOTH sides once it's been removed. otherwise it will stick to itself and be no good.
