Posted by on

Today I would like to show you how to do a cracked porcelain doll make-up, which is extremely popular around the Halloween season.

White and Grey from Elisa Griffith Color Me Pro Palette

Cameleon Red Berry

Loew-Cornell Round #3

Liner Brush

Teardrop sponge

I started by sponging the base with white Diamond FX, which I then went over with white and grey powders from Elisa Griffith Colour Me Pro Palette. I do this as it helps to give a more even base.

Next I sponged black Diamond FX around the eye sockets and also on the head and chest where the holes will be.

I used my Lowell Cornell Gold Grip Round #3 and a Liner Brush to paint the cracks around the eyes, on the forehead, around the mouth and on the chest area.

I then painted the lips in a cupid bow style, using Cameleon Red Berry. The shade appears slightly lighter because I painted over the white base so that I could change the shape of the lips.

I then softened the crack lines using the Elisa Griffith Black Powder. I also used that for shadows underneath, to make the cracks appear more realistic. For highlights, I used White Diamond FX with my Liner Brush and blended them in.
