Halloween costume: Need make-up source & materials help
posted by pointystick to Clothing, Beauty, & Fashion (7 answers total) 3 users marked this as a favorite
For halloween, some friends & I will need some make-up for our costumes, including full face. (one of us will be doing a day of the dead skull face). I'm good with the design part but the materials part has me frustrated. From Halloweens past, I know that cheap, party store greasepaint pots and sticks are likely not going to give us the vibrant colors and crisp lines we'd like.
I would love recommendations for materials, brands, sources, & tools. Should we be looking at the cosmetics counter, costume store, or both?
We would especially like:
- a good base material for all over color (like matte white for skulls or clowns). Something that won't smear easily would be grand.
- materials for accent colors
- Glitter or special textures is a bonus but not required
We probably won't need to do fake wounds, fake noses, or moustaches/beards.
We are not on a tight budget but I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars.
