Getting an ugly look with makeup is a piece of cake to anyone. Even toddlers can put their hands on a beauty makeup and make their own scary look. Ironically, Halloween is also the only time of the year when beauty makeup can really make you look ugly. A Halloween makeup can easily be achieved by making your face look really pale as dead by putting on thick foundation on your face and some really pale lipstick. Or smudging a thick red lipstick over your lips could also pass up for a blood sucking spill. One can also apply heavy black eyeliner as well as black eye shadow all around your eyes to get the spooky look of Wednesday of the Adam’s Family. Or better yet draw your face with eyeliner with stitch marks to replicate the look of Frankenstein. There are so many quick ways to wear a Halloween makeup. As long as you color your face red, black, and ultimate white, you can be ready for a Halloween jeer.
But if you fancy a scarier and more realistic Halloween look, you can opt for the hard Halloween makeup technique, which includes the use of prosthetic makeup. With this, you can wear the skin of a monster as if wearing a mask only that it looks more realistic. It is hard because it takes painstakingly long hours to do a Halloween makeup on prosthetics. It can also be very hot for your skin and can be a little bit costly on your part.
Hollywood movies usually use this hard Halloween makeup technique in horror movies. Perhaps, you should only opt for this if you’re physically prepared because prosthetics can be harmful to your health or if you’re really bent on winning a Halloween costume feat where prize money is at stake so the cost of putting on prosthetics can be recoup.
