In preparation for Halloween, we headed to Kryolan Professional Make-Up to learn how to transform ourselves into three popular Halloween characters: vampire, cat, and zombie. If you thought elaborate makeup required dozens of pricey products and aesthetician schooling, think again. Special effects specialist Jordan Plath showed us how to create this fur-rocious feline in just a few steps by demonstrating on Editorial Assistant Devon Porrino. All you need to recreate this popular Halloween look is some face paint, a soft eyeliner pencil, pink lipstick, and his expert tips!
Halloween Make Up
After prepping clean skin with a makeup primer, Jordan used a cosmetic sponge to dab face paint onto the upper half of the face, including across the nose. If you have pale skin, you could use a crème foundation made for dark skin tones, but if you have olive or dark skin, go for a fun bright color. We used Kryolan Aquacolor paint in a vivid orange.
Draw the spots freehand with your pencil. (With a pencil this soft, you’ll need to sharpen a few times) “Go for some irregularity to make it look natural,” Jordan says. “This part is a little time-consuming, but it’s really easy.”
“With a complicated look—especially if it’s not waterproof—it’s a good idea to use a fixative spray to keep everything in place,” Jordan says. We used Kryolan Fixing Spray. _You can use common drugstore cosmetics to complete this look, but for more info on the professional products we used, visit "www.Kryolan.com":http://kryolan.com/index.php._
