Is it Halloween yet? Vampires are one of the most popular looks chosen for Halloween. So let’s get ready to scare that lone person walking through a dark alley.
Here’s What you’ll need:
- Mehron Starblend White
- Mehron Starblend Black
- Mehron Starblend Red
- Mehron Starblend Monster Grey
- Paradise Black
- Ben Nye Lumiere Palette
- Stage Blood
- Blood Gel
- Smoothie Blender
- #4 Round Brush
- Red Lipstick
Let’s start with your white Starblend loaded on your Smoothie Blender. Add the white on the the edges of the face working your way in. Be sure to hit all of the areas that need highlights. (i.e. cheekbones, bridge of nose, etc…) Next, you’ll begin using a mixture of the White and Monster Grey Starblends to contour the face.
Begin filling in the eyes with a blend of Black, Red and Monster Grey Starblends. Keep the darker color in the center of the eyes and use more red on the bottom to make a bruise color.
Grab your #4 Round brush and load it with Paradise Black. Fill in the eyebrows and add eyeliner. You will want to add some shimmer highlights to the top of the eyes using your Ben Nye Lumiere Pallete (silver) and a Smoothie Blender.
Using a dry #4 Round brush, load it with your Red Starblend and begin adding dripping from the eyes and bottom lip as pictured.
Add lipstick. (the easy part)
It’s time to add the gore. I personally like to mix the stage blood and blood gel together to give it a better consistency. Yo can use your #4 Round brush or a q-tip if you prefer. Add drips of blood from the eyes and bottom of the mouth.
To complete this look, I added a black wig and more blood to the shoulders and hands. You can always put your own spin on this look to make it even more scary or even give it a sexier look. Please share your Vampire look with us on Facebook. Be sure to let us know what tutorials you’d like to see us do in the future!
Until next time, have fun creeping out the neighbors while you are practicing!
