Pale Corpse Bride/Groom
This is one of the easiest looks to pull off and you can be as
adventurous or restrained as you want to be. For example, you can be a
corpse that’s just a few hours old or something that’s been decomposing
for days. The former is easier to pull off while the latter requires
some skill and makeup items. Here are some tips:
- Find a pale foundation color with a cool undertone. You need to look
bloodless and lifeless but still have that flesh-like hue on your skin.
Apply thE foundation evenly all over your skin, including your eyelids,
ears, neck, and lips. You need to cancel out every hint of warmth and
color from your complexion.
- Use ashy grey or brown tones to carefully contour your face and add
dimension to it. The foundation would make your skin look flat and
blank, which isn’t realistic. Contouring under the cheekbones, under the
jawline, and around the temples will add the dimension back to your
- Add eye bags or dark circles to your face. You can use the same
contouring shade to add subtle dark circles. Make sure the edges are
blended and there are no harsh lines to ensure it looks natural.
- You can add a few faded blue, green, or black veins to your skin.
Try to place them where veins are naturally more prominent like the
neck, cheeks, jaw, etc.
- Wear formal clothes while a white suit or a bridal gown to complete the look.
This look requires a little more skill but it’s very creepy and a
little different from the standard Halloween fare. You don’t need to
turn your face into a skull, but just a section of the mouth. It would
look like the skin and flesh were torn from the surface and only the
bones remained. The rest of your face can be perfect and you can even
makeup to it with eye shadow, foundation, eyeliner, etc.
- Prepare the base first, so apply foundation and any other makeup you
want on the rest of your face. If you intend to do full glam makeup,
finish that before you move onto the mouth.
- Once the base is ready, mark out a section of your mouth with an
eyebrow pencil. You don’t need to create a precise line because you want
to create a torn-off or melted-off skin effect.
- Blank out the canvas with white foundation or makeup to cancel all flesh-toned color.
- Once the foundation is set, use the dark brow pencil to create the
teeth and the skeletal structure around the mouth. You can use a picture
as a reference to create realistic-looking teeth and bones.
- After you’ve sketched the design, use face paint or matte black
liner over the brow pencil lines. Be sure the recreate the shadows and
contours of the teeth and bones to create a realistic effect.
- Add a little dark blood-red color near the torn-off edges and spray
small droplets around the mouth. You can use fake blood to create the
illusion that your torn-off mouth is bleeding. Let the fake blood drip
down from the mouth to your neck and into your shirt and clothes.
