Model's Honey Egg Facial Mask

"If you want dewy looking skin before going out try this! This is a very old recipe used by model's all over the world before putting on their make-up. The light will pick-up the soft dew which will give you a soft natural glow on film. Since my teenage years I have use this secret it never ceases to amaze even after many years. I used this for bride's when I was a make- up artist but if using for a wedding day the mask must be done the night before as a wedding day is usually very hectic and stressful!"

Ready In:
1 facial


  • 1 egg white (extra large egg or egg whites in a carton)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (heaping)


  • Whip the room temperature egg whites until "very stiff dry" peaks form.
  • Slowly add honey and continue to whip egg whites until "very stiff dry" glossy peaks form and there is a reduction in amount of egg white mixture.
  • "Please, beat mixture until extremely stiff peaks are formed".
  • Must put mask on in layers until about 2 inches thick on a clean face & neck leaving the nostrils, the entire eye and mouth area free of mask.
  • Sitting up in the beginning of application will cause the mask to slip off the face lie down for applicacation until egg white mask is very hard and cracking if you try to move your facial muscles and face will feel impossible to move your mouth into a smile without cracking the mask.This very important because room temperature can affect how long it takes for this to dry. Best utilization of this recipe is for the mask to be very hard before you wash it off with warm to hot water.
  • Pat dry face with towel.
  • Wait 1 hour before putting on make-up skin will be dewy and make-up will blend beautifully.
  • Note: 1 egg white to 1 tablespoon honey unless you want a firmer mask add more honey slowly and very carefully as the mixture becomes a meringue and you see how the peaks are forming the firmer the better; mask will hold together.

    I only used 1 egg white and the 1 t of honey, per It made plenty. Made my skin real soft, but it still feels a little dry. Will try to work with the formula a little more; maybe add some fruit or avocado to moisturize? Thanks for the recipe :-)

    This left my face feeling soft and smooth. I had tons and tons of mask. I'm pretty sure 1 egg would have been more than enough! I also had a technical problem whipping my egg white. I added a little more honey, but it didn't help. And then the extra honey made the mask stickier than it probably should have been. Hard to believe I can mess up beating and egg embarassed!


<p><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br />recipe#129579 by txzuckerbaeckerin started it all! I was so touched by the responses to my inquiries on Recipezaar. If it wasn't for the fact I lost my favourite cheesecake recipe and was determined to find one similar or the same I would not have found Reipezaar so I just have to tell my story. I had lost this recipe in moving and I bought several baking books and searched the web for months in my desperate search. Extremely late one night I found Recipezaar and posted my lost recipe as best as I could remember. The next day in the forum there it was posted the&nbsp;&nbsp;one and only lost cheesecake recipe. I knew it was the one from some of the ingredients. Several chefs gave me other recipes including New York Cheesecake by Tyler Florence which is wonderful as well which includes the Cherry Confit topping in the recipe which we adore. On September 19, 2006 this story had a happy ending with me finding my old cheesecake recipe. I thought I will never lose it again by posting it on Recipezaar.recipe #186938.That is why I'm hooked on this wonderful web site called Food!&nbsp;</p>
