The Face Chart is a tool that helps makeup artists or enthusiasts capture makeup looks on paper–but more like a canvas that takes well to makeup. It’s designed by friend and reader, Dustin Hunter (of YouTube fame), using an original design that really captures the nuances of what elements are needed in something like this. It uses textured paper that can be used with cream as well as powder products. On the right, you’ll find the blank face, and on the left, you’ll find plenty of space to note the products you’ve used to create the look. Each sheet is standard A-size (8.5″ by 11″) and can also be slid into clear protector sheets and into a binder to create a portfolio or book to flip through.

I really like just how detailed these are from cover-to-cover. It just feels like a product that someone who needed them personally, so they knew exactly what was missing from other versions and what they needed in their own, that then was extended to the world. The cover itself lifts on the opposite end you’d expect so that it can keep the loose edges from getting wrinkled, damaged, and torn, as the binding on the other side protects that side. I’ve been playing with them here and there in my spare time, and though I have nothing I’m proud enough of to share with you, I did con Dustin into sending me some that he’s done so I could show you what these are capable of! (Also, so I could have some study material for my own attempts.)

They’re available in a 25-pack (bound so you can keep them together, or you can tear off one sheet at a time to give to a client, post on a wall, etc.) for $12 as well as in a 100-pack (loose, so they are not bound) for $36 (normally $42). Dustin recommends using a setting spray (the type used for pencil and charcoal drawings) to set everything and to prevent any smudging. All of the finished ones I have in my possession have stayed beautifully intact without smudging or fading. For anyone who loves makeup and has an inner artist, it’s a great way to play. I have absolutely no artistic inclination, but I’m slowly but surely working my way to, “maybe one day I’ll share with the class,” but for now, it’s something nice to do as a stress-reliever.

The binding has held up well to prolonged use, tossing into bags and backpacks, and doesn’t get sticky. The textured paper isn’t too thick or too thin–it has a good weight to it, though.  I didn’t have any problems getting powder, liquid, and cream products to adhere to the paper, either, and in the past, some paper takes well to creams but not as well to powder, so it’s nice to be able to reach for any type of product and use it with The Face Chart. I also appreciate that there is actually enough space to write on the left, both in terms of overall area but also in the height of each line.

If you’ve always wanted to experiment with face charts of your own, I hope you’ll consider these! They’re well-made, beautifully drawn, and work well for their purpose. If you’re interested, Temptalia readers can purchase these for 20% off with code temptalia (all lowercase) now through November 11th at The Face Chart! :)
