What do you use for.....?

Post by Metina on Sun Sep 20, 2009 9:30 am

Your skull/vampire bases? I readily admit that the boy, scary faces are not my forte. I was working a festival yesterday and had these requested several times. I must practice and do these better. Thanks!

this depends.. if a little girl says.. I want to be a vampire, then I'll do her base in silver, or white shimmer powder(ala sparkly twilight vampires..) and then I draw in eyebrows, fangs, etc...

For boys, if they want to look dead, then I use a white/gray base.. Or, I'll use a flesh tone color lighter than their own and do the highlights, and then darken in the other parts with a shade darker than them... Same thing for devils if the kids doesn't want to be red..

I'll upload so examples in my gallery and then show you.. I have a couple of girl pics...

I just love that little vampire girl! She has the most amazing and intense eyes! They look like a cross between blood and chocolate! WOW!

I like the slightly sparkly base for easier coverage too. I got a Kryolan 'Nacre' that has a slightly fleshy/opalescent tone...there is also one (maybe Kathy knows the name) that has more of a greenish/blue undertone that would make a good 'undead' base!

I like the idea of gray, but I'd probably highlight with a bit more white so it wasn't so dark.

I'm so stoked for Halloween this year! Very Happy

Kryolan colours Heather is speaking of are the Nacre which has a pink tinge and PB which is kind of blue tinged.
took a quicky photo for reference.

Thanks Kathy...I knew you'd come to the rescue!!

Was thinking they'd make great 'Twilight' vamps...since they are kinda a bit popular now! Very Happy

I'm torn between a Vampire and a 'classic' witch (like Wizard of Oz) witch...green face and warts and all for Halloween this year. I think my nose is just long and pointy enough to pull off a good witch, which is why I usually AVOID the witch costume!

The new American Face Painter Mag came and there on the cover was the classic green witch! Great little mag, some amazing and wierd stuff in that issue! hehe

I tried the snaz sparkle white for the base but you can hardly see it. Ashley what color/brand did you use for the second vampire girl? I like her shimmer.
