Cream Makeup

Cream make-up. Grease make-up should be dusted with transparent powder so that it does not rub off.
Can be applied with a brush or sponge. It is recommended to use latex sponges. Cream make-up is excellent for both shading, highlighting and as a base make-up/foundation and is often used for theater make-up, stage makeup, cosplay, Halloween make-up and of course SFX make-up.

Cream Makeup Benefits

  • Lasts a long time.
  • Excellent for both shading and as a foundation.
  • Can be used for both basic make-up, shadows, highlights and details.
  • No drying time.
  • Doesn’t need to get activated with water before use.

Disadvantages with Cream Makeup

  • To prevent the makeup from rubbing off on clothing or costumes, it must be powdered and set with translucent powder. This helps the makeup stay in place and maintain its appearance.
  • It is also recommended to use a sealer to help set and preserve the cream makeup.

Cream Makeup Tips

  • Makeup wheels, also known as cream color circles or makep wheels, are a convenient and cost-effective option for purchasing cream makeup. These wheels typically contain a variety of colors that can be used for a range of applications, including zombie makeup, bruises, wounds, and old age makeup. Makeup wheels save space and time, as they allow you to purchase multiple colors in one compact package rather than buying them separately. Many makeup brands offer makeup wheels in a variety of themes and colors to suit different needs and preferences.
  • Cream makeup is available in stick form, which is particularly good for use as foundation. Stick cream makeup is easy to apply and can provide a natural, smooth finish.
  • You can thin out makeup by using isopropanol. Note: It is important to avoid using isopropanol near the eyes, mouth, or nose. These areas of the body are sensitive and can be easily damaged or irritated.
  • Instead of using transparent powder to set black cream make-up, black eyeshadow can be used instead. Then you also avoid getting a faint greyish tint that some types of transparent powder can give if you use them on dark colored makeup.
  • Cream makeup is excellent for “paint and powder” old age makeup.

Hygiene and safety when using cream makeup

It is important to never apply cream makeup and other cream-based makeup products directly from the container onto the skin. This is because doing so can spread viruses, cold sores, and other bacteria to other people. It is safer to use a clean plastic or metal spatula to scoop the product out of the container and onto a clean palette before applying it to the skin. This helps to prevent the spread of infections.

Recommended Bruise Wheels to SFX makeup

A bruise wheel is a makeup wheel containing colors specifically chosen to create realistic bruises, both old and new. It can also be used to crate cuts and wounds. The wheel may contain anywhere from four to six different colors. Many makeup brands offer their own versions of bruise wheels.

My cream make-up has a moist surface, can I use the product?
Cream make-up and other cream based cosmetics often “sweat” and form small beads of moisture on the surface. This is totally normal and does not in any way affect the quality of the products. New fard cremes may appear to have “color dots” on the surface of the product, which easily can be wiped away and does not affect the color.
