This is the ShowMakeup guide to Dracula makeup.
Follow the steps below to create your fiend of choice
- You can use either cream or water makeup. Cream is best for realism, but water is easier to apply and remove.
- Hungry vampires are unnaturally pale, so start by whitening your face with the white makeup. Spread it thinly, you can always add more if you need to.
- Add ghoulish purple or grey shading around the temples, eyes, nose, chin and cheeks. Follow the photograph for ideas on placing these shadows.
- Now for the eye makeup. We suggest black eyeshadow for your eyelids and in the socket. Use the eyeshadow dry in this areas so it blends away at the edges.
- Next, add water to your brush and pick up more eyeshadow. The water will give a more intense colour with a hard edge. Use this for eyelining and for accentuating your eyebrows. You can also use wet eyeshadow for the “widows-peak” hair style. You can use black face paint instead for this. Grimas colour code 101.
- Fangs – see the instructions on the pack. The putty sets quickly, so only mix enough for one tooth at a time.
- Blood – for a bloody mouth, cut the end of a blood capsule and hold it in your cheek until ready. Then bite down to squeeze out the blood!
- Complete the effect with a Dracula wig or use the white makeup to put streaks in your hair.
