I'm teaching my theater class about stage makeup. In the past, I've only taught them how to make bruises and black eyes (because they're the most fun), but this year I'm also teaching them how to apply "natural" stage makeup (in quotes because, up close, there is nothing natural about it) and old age makeup.
I made a video of myself doing the old age one, but I didn't have time to edit it, and I didn't want to show off a half-done project; I like perfection, you see.
And probably that perfectionist streak explains why I got more and more depressed as I continued to record myself with my pronounced wrinkles and lopsided face. I've definitely crossed into the Botox camp after this experience.
This is the last segment of the video, and the only part I'm posting online, but only because I find it hilarious--after the fact. I look like death, and my expressions are ... well. You'll see.
