Materials Needed:

  • sponge
  • white base (foundation or creme makeup)
  • white or light powder
  • powder puff or brush
  • eye shadow (colors: brown, black, gray, red, pink)
  • eyeliner (dark brown or black)
  • stage blood
  • vampire fangs

Apply White Base and Powder

Cover entire face with a white or pale base and dust with powder to set it and remove any sheen.

Shade Skin

To achieve an undead look, shade hollows of cheeks, under chin, around nose and under eyes. Use blending brushes and eye shadows in brown, gray, pink and red shades to make skin look sickly and sunken. This also enhances and sharpens features.

Darken Eyebrows

Darken eyebrows with brown or black shadow or liner. Tip: Make the arches more severe for a villainous look.

Add Blood and Fangs

Stop here to be a ghoul, but continue on with the final step to turn this look into a full-fledged vampire. Add stage blood at edges of the mouth, letting it run down the chin (Image 1). Tip: Let blood drip all the way down the neck if you have a flair for the dramatic. Finish the look with vampire fangs (Image 2).
