True Blood Vampire Halloween Look Video

Simple steps to creating a flawless, True Blood-inspired vampire look with makeup you already own,

© 2011 Copyright Notice


This video will demonstrate how to achieve a vampire-inspired make-up look with products you have in your make-up bag. You will need foundation, black, gray, and purple eye shadow, black eyeliner and mascara, face powder, red lipstick, and a red lip gloss. To begin, apply your foundation as normal. Next, sweep a gray, matte eye shadow underneath your eye, to the hollow, beneath your eyebrow, and the sides of your nose. Also, apply the eye shadow to the outer crease of your eyelid. Intensify the gray by sweeping a matte purple eye shadow into the socket of your eye. With an angled brush, apply a matte black eye shadow underneath your lashes. Sweep your face powder onto the eyelid and brow bone to help blend. Now, apply a black eyeliner to the lower waterline, curl your eyelashes, and apply a dark black mascara. With a fine-tipped eyeliner brush and matte black eye shadow, begin drawing veins underneath your eye. Don't worry about the pattern. Random veins look the best. With a make-up sponge, pat your face powder on top of the veins. This will help them to look like they're under your skin. Brush away the excess face powder. Now, contour your face with a gray eye shadow. Focus the contour underneath your cheek bones and into your temples. Apply a red lipstick. And finally, use a deep red pigmented lip gloss, and add drops of blood into the corner of your mouth. And that completes the vampire-inspired make-up look. Now, all you have to do, is find a willing blood donor.
