Old Age Makeup by Caroline Healy Step 1
I began by applying a base coat of foundation using a make-up sponge. I chose a tone which was the closest match to to my skin as I wanted a healthy aged look. For someone ill you would use a base with a hint of green, blue or grey.

Next I sponged chestnut brown cream blend below my cheekbones, in the temple areas and my neck. I used Loew-Cornell number 1 brush for the finer lines around my eyes, mouth and forehead.

I also wanted my eyes to appear sunken and tired, so I used a bronze cream with a round number 3 brush on the eyelids and under my eyes.

Using a flat number 2 brush and a white cream I highlighted above the shaded areas on my forehead, nose, cheekbones, chin and neck. Also adding some highlights around my mouth.

I added fine wrinkles around my eyes, on forehead and mouth using a Paint Pal Swirl number 1 brush with chestnut brown cream by Mehron.

I then added highlights again above all the fine wrinkles on my face and neck. These add more depth.

To make it more realistic I wanted to add some discoloration to my skin, giving the impression of broken veins etc.

I loaded a stipple sponge with burnt maroon (from my Mehron bruise ring) I applied it to some areas on my forehead, nose and cheeks.

To set the make-up I used a transparent powder and a powder puff, removing any excess powder with a powder brush.

Next I loaded a teardrop sponge with grey Diamond FX and added streaks to my hair and my eyebrows.

To complete the look I added black tooth paint by Superstar, using a round number 3 brush.
