The Face Chart by Dustin Hunter
The Face Chart by Dustin Hunter

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! :)

    I love Monsieur Hunter! These charts are fabulous, I will be ordering presently, thanks for the discount Christine :)

  4. Wow a face chart that is a true blank canvas. If I was more artistically inclined, I would get these!

  5. Renee

    Yay! Now I don’t need to attempt to draw my own which never really work out anyways. Just placed my first order. Can’t wait to play!

  6. Oh, wow! The looks Dustin sent you are stunning! :)

    These look very nice. Definitely considering buying some. I’d love to learn how to apply makeup better, and this also seems like a great way to think of some looks to use in the future. Thanks for sharing info on these! [:

  8. Even though I am not a pro, I could totally get into these.. this post has captivated the inner child and made me reminiscent of paper dolls and colouring, things that used to happily occupy me for hours. Cool beans!

  9. I know that I always love it when a makeup artist does one for me when I have my makeup done. It might help me create my own original looks, just seeing how it all looks together rather than trying it out on myself, first.

    These are wonderful. I just ordered two. One for my daughter and one for my friends daughter who is going to cosmetology school.

    Thanks for the discount!

  12. Go Dustin!!! Love your work! These charts are amazing. I wish I was this talented lol

  13. Julia

    These look like that perfect combination of design, simplicity and function that makes a tool like this a joy to use. His designs he sent you are gorgeous, I would buy a book already filled with them.

  14. Dani

    Cool! And for my surprise, it will be deliver to Brazil. I’ve just ordered. Tks a lot for the discount.

    A most useful face chart would be one where one of the eyes is closed. I find it really difficult to portray the detailed application of eye products on an open-eyed chart. Do anyone here know of any charts like that?

  16. I NEED this asap. For a beginner like me, I can work on color eye combos on paper first and even save the better ones for application (since I’m wearing more for going out than daily). I still have my Mac one from my wedding makeup, they are like pieces of art – must. buy. these!
