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:

PERFECT PEDICURE SPA CHAIRS

  • 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 face.
  • 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.

Skeleton Mouth

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 add glam 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.
