SOME IDEAS

  • Instant Aging - When trying to look old, don't just draw dark lines on your skin to look like wrinkles. First cover the skin in a lighter than normal color using baby powder or white blemish cover stick. Then draw the dark lines on and slightly blend the lines to the area around them with your finger. Then add baby powder to give the skin that old, dry look. You can then use the baby powder in your hair to get that gray look.
  • Vamp Basics - If you want to be a Vampire, first cover face in white "pancake" makeup or white blemish cover stick. Outline sharp eyebrows and then fill in with black makeup. Draw lines on the face with reddish-brown makeup and blur the edges a bit. Outline the eyes and draw a line up about an inch from the outside edge of the eye. Drip fake blood at the edges of the mouth. (see below for details on making fake blood) Comb hair into a point in the middle of the forehead. Use fake teeth to complete the transformation.
  • Witch Tips - To look like a witch, cover the face in green or white "pancake" makeup or white blemish cover stick. With a black makeup stick, draw lines in a "V" in the middle of the forehead and create some lines around the mouth. Draw lines on the hands with an eyeliner pen; almost follow the veins to make the hands look old. Tease and spray hair with a super stick hairspray, place in a few plastic bugs.

SOME SPECIFICS

  • For scars and sores: Combine pink or green face tissue with corn syrup.
  • For facial hair: Use the hair from an old stuffed toy or hairbrush and attach with double stick tape or fake eyelash adhesive.
  • For blood: Combine red food color and corn syrup. After dripping the blood where you want it to be, don't let the edges of the blood smear. Give the fake blood plenty of time to dry and be mindful not to wipe your face later on in the evening!
  • For blood and gore: Use red food color, corn syrup and chunky peanut butter.
