Insert Special Effect Contacts (Optional)
These contacts are white with pink edges, which make eyes appear to glow. When wearing contacts as part of a Halloween costume, always put them in before you begin the makeup application.
Make sure skin is clean, moisturized and primed for foundation. Begin with a full coverage base a few shades lighter than your natural skin tone. Use a mixture of white foundation and foundation primer. Extend it down your neck and blend out anywhere skin will be showing (Image 1). Set with white face powder to give yourself a supernatural, gothic look (Image 2).
Color in eyebrows using a very dark shade. Match brows to hair, or just opt for very dark brown or black. Use a pencil liner for precision. Define and sharpen the shape to make them look wicked (Image 1). Add a beauty mark to your cheek with brown liquid liner (Image 2).
