Hi, I'm Erin on behalf of Expert Village. And today we are going to be working on the application of facial hair. Now, we're going to look on to doing a full beard, which we're only going to do half the face. Basically, it is a lot easier to do with a man and normally you would be applying hair to a man. Like I said before, you can just follow their shadow line of the stubble to see where their natural hair line is. Right now, we are just going to have to go with the flow. Usually, where the line would go would be probably around the side burn area down in here and down right under the cheek bone area here into the mustache, kind of making a "C" curve. Usually filling in these areas right here and probably all the way down the chin. But, it's going to be a little scattered down, down these two areas right here. That's what we're going to do, basically. We're going to cover this area and do a little bit of scatterness and make it look realistic.
