Creating wrinkles on kids can be a fantastic way of transforming kids into different characters for costume showcases, parties, or theatrical performances. A couple of times, our kids are often placed in a drama to act out a role and some of this role will need them to wear a wrinkle make. 

What would you do if you have never handled such a thing before? How can I master the process quickly without errors? Are you going to allow other people to makeup your child when you know that he/she gets easily irritated and has allergies? 

These are the thoughts that will come to your mind when your kids propose their outfits and costumes to you. To save you all the worries, I am going to walk you through the process of creating wrinkles with makeup on kids and how to add a touch of realism to it. From outlining the steps and items needed to where to find them.  Let’s get started!

Step 1: Gather the Necessary Items

As a guardian choosing makeup items and costumes for kids, you will need to consider the kid’s skin type, and ingredients used in making the items – to know the ingredients the items contain, you will need to read either the item handbook or precautions as it will give you heads up on what to expect and how to moderately use them and the process to follow.

Before we delve into the process, let’s take a look at the items you’ll need to create wrinkles with makeup on kids:

  1. Makeup primer: Makeup primer is used to smoother the face or to create a smooth canvas before applying makeup.
  1. Cosmetics sponges or Makeup sponges: generally used for even application of foundation and other makeup products.
  1. Foundation: use a shade of foundation that is slightly darker than the child’s skin tone to create depth and shadows. For this,  I will recommend a Matte product or child-friendly foundation. 
  1. Eyeshadows: the best eyeshadows that fit this type of makeup are dark shades like brown, grey, or black because it enhances the appearance of wrinkles.
  1. Makeup brushes: Makeup brushes are used for precise application of powder or blush to the face and neck area.
  1. Setting powder or Baby Powder: It helps to set the makeup and prevent smudging.
  1. Makeup remover wipes: For easy removal of makeup at the end of the occasions

Step 2: Outlining the Wrinkles

Once you are done setting the items for the makeup, clean the child’s face properly with face cleaner and warm water. Wipe out the water by using a clean facial towel. 

After the cleanup, examine the child’s face to identify areas where wrinkles would naturally appear, such as around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. Use a light-coloured eyeliner or a makeup pencil and lightly mark the desired wrinkle lines on the child’s face. Be very gentle to avoid any discomfort.

Step 3: Create the Wrinkles

Apply a small amount of makeup primer to the child’s face immediately after outlining the wrinkles. Allow it to dry for some minutes before proceeding. Use a cosmetic sponge to apply the foundation all over the child’s face, including the marked wrinkle areas. 

Blend the foundation properly to achieve a natural appearance. Apply the eyeshadows along the marked wrinkle line using a fine makeup brush. Start with a lighter shade and gradually build up the intensity for a more realistic effect. 

For a textured appearance use a tapping motion then blend the eyeshadow gently using a clean brush or sponge to soften the edges and make the wrinkles look more natural… Repeat the process for each marked wrinkle line while adjusting the depth and colour to your desired look.

Step 4: Setting the Makeup

Once you’ve successfully created the wrinkles, gently dust the child’s face with a setting powder or baby powder. This will help to set the makeup and prevent it from smudging throughout the day. You can do this by Using a large, fluffy brush to apply the setting powder over the entire face while paying extra attention to the wrinkled areas.

Safety Precaution

1. Ensure that the makeup products you use are hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and specifically designed for children’s sensitive skin.

2. Perform a patch test on a small area of the child’s skin before applying makeup to the entire face to check for any adverse reactions.

3. Avoid applying makeup near the child’s eyes or in their mouth to prevent irritation or ingestion.

4. Always supervise the child during the application process and remove the makeup immediately if they experience discomfort or irritation.
