1. Starting with the hydra sponge cut in half and the white face paint. Activate the white face paint by adding a very small amount of water. Work into the paint with the sponge, getting the sponge good and loaded with paint. Apply all over the face. Make sure to extend the face paint to the very edges of the face, applying into the hairline slightly as well.

2.  Next, using the filbert brush and the black face paint, start with filling in the eye sockets. Paint across the eyebrow,  then from the edge of the inner eyebrow, paint a line straight down between the nose and the eye. Once you are in line with the corner of the eye, start to paint a curved line that goes around the bottom of the eye. Curve the line back up to meet the other side of the eyebrow. Fill in. Make sure to get underneath the bottom eyelashes. You do not want to see any skin showing through.  Repeat on other side.

3. Next, using the same brush and paint, fill in the tip of the nose. Create two little tick marks at the top of the black nose shape.

4. Now, You’ll want to paint the hallow cheeks. Paint a half of circle shape underneath each cheek. Make sure they are even on both sides.

5. Next, using a round #4 brush, you’ll want to paint the teeth across the mouth. Starting at the middle of the top lip. Press your brush into the bottom of the lip, and flick your brush up, while pulling up. This will make a tear drop shape. You may want to practice this on your arm before starting. Repeat this brush stoke across the top of the lips. Extend beyond the lips and go across the cheeks. Do the same for the bottom lip.

6. Using the same brush, add fine line details on the black shapes, by pulling small lines on top of the eye sockets and top of forehead.

7. Finish the look with the loose shimmer white powder and a powder puff. Dab the power across the face, pushing into mostly the white, a small amount of the black. Push into the hairline, and add to the ears. You now have a glamours, spooky dead look. Hail to the queen of darkness! LOL.
