# Makeup

## Description

A makeup is a special, separate that has a special layout, allowing for custom and temporary header & footer sections. Pages that need not rely on the current page layout style typically include covers, colophons, or similar. There is one standard makeup page, but you can define more if needed.

## Examples

There are a few ways to invoke a custom makeup:

\definemakeup[custom][align=middle]
\starttext
\startmakeup[custom]
This is a title page.
\stopmakeup

\input zapf
\stoptext

And another:

\definemakeup[custom][align=middle]
\starttext
\startcustommakeup
This is a title page.
\stopcustommakeup

\input zapf
\stoptext

By default, makeups lack both header and footers. They are vertically centered and horizontally aligned to the left..

## Vertical Aligment

Makeups are centered vertically by default.

The way to align them vertically to the top or to the bottom is the following:

\setuppapersize[A6]
\starttext
\startstandardmakeup[top=,]
This is vertically aligned to the top.
\stopstandardmakeup

\startstandardmakeup[bottom=,]
This is vertically aligned to the bottom.
\stopstandardmakeup

\startstandardmakeup
This is the default: vertically centered.
\stopstandardmakeup
\stoptext

Horizontal aligment is specified with the align option.
