Face painting design and face paint makeup, in the theater are one of the primary ways open to the professional face painting, artists to create the illusion of a particular character. The made up face then helps the actor to become the character and helps the audience to believe the actor. A well made up face along with the costumes ,set design and lighting, creates a powerful environment for the actor to perform. Professional face painting products enable the artist to create ageing and youthfulness, depending on the roll the actor has to perform.

Camouflage Face Painting

Since skin reflects light and this may draw an enemy's attention. Face painting design used to cover the skin that reflects light because of the natural oil or sweat even from dark skin. Camouflage Face Paint is used thus to cover and camouflage the skin. Soldiers mormaly apply the paint in teams or work with a buddy in pairs to help each other. A two-three color combination of paint is applied in an irregular pattern. Shiny areas (forehead, cheekbones, nose, ears, and chin) are painted with a dark, color, and shadow areas (around the eyes, under the nose, and under the chin) are painted with a light color. In addition to the face, exposed skin on the back of the neck, arms, and hands are also painted. Palms of hands are not normally camouflaged if arm-and-hand signals are to be used. The three standard camouflage face paint sticks are: loam and light green for all troops in areas with green vegetation; sand and light green for all troops in areas lacking green vegetation; and loam and white for all troops in snow covered terrain.
