I began by applying a white base of facepaint, on a round sponge to the side of the face.

I then used a cotton bud to paint a line of spirit gum down the centre of the face, avoiding the eyes and eyebrows!

Next I rolled very thin strips of FX wax and fixed them to the spirit gum, allowing time for it to dry. To make it easier to blend, I applied a layer of Vaseline over the wax using a cotton bud and then moulded using a spatula.

Once I was satisfied with the blending of the wax, I sponged the other side of the face and the wax using a matte mousse foundation.

Using Diamond FX black and a round sponge I darkened the eye, nose, and temple area. I then used a number 1 brush to outline and paint the cheekbones.

I then shaded with a eyeshadow brush and black shimmer powder by Eliza Griffith.

I also used the black shimmer powder on the other eyelid and then blended out using a light grey shimmer, highlighting the brow bone with a white shimmer powder.

Next I used a black pencil above and below the eye and darkened the eyebrow, also adding mascara.

To make the edges of the skin look sore and more realistic I used the red from my Mehron bruise wheel and a number 3 brush.

I painted the teeth using Diamond FX white and a number 5 brush.

Finally I outlined the teeth and painted the cracks around the eyes using Diamond FX black and a number 1 brush.
