How To Do Vampire Make Up


With the popularity of Twilight, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries on the rise a lot of people have been trying out their hand at vampire beauty.  However the modern day vampire look is not too similar to the traditional goth look that we’re so used to. Today’s vampire is  much more romanticized and human friendly. If you want to give this look a try here are a few easy to follow tips on how to do vampire makeup.

  • The most important thing that you have to do is apply a powder foundation to your skin. However, you’re not going to apply the foundation color that you normally would when applying makeup. Instead you want to use one that is at least two shades lighter than your natural skin tone. The point is to look pale so the whiter the better.
  • If you have dark under eye circles, don’t worry about covering them up. They will just make you look as if you haven’t fed in a couple of days.
  • Next decide whether you want to be a Twilight vampire or a True Blood vampire. If you’re heading towards Twilight then you can also apply some shimmer to mimic what Edward looks like in the sun. If you’re a Trueby then skip this process.
  • You can’t be a vampire without dramatic eyes. The best eye makeup technique that you can use is the smokey eye using darker colors such as grey, black and brown. Don’t use bold colors such as green and blue because these colors are all wrong for the theme.
  • Finish your smokey eye look by applying black liner as well as thickening mascara to your lashes. The more attention that you can bring to your eyes the better.
  • When picking out colors for your lips stay away from the gloss. Your lips should be done in a muted tone such as a brown or maybe even a wine red. When these colors are seen against the paleness of the foundation they tend to stand out and look a little eerie, but that’s just part of the draw of vampire beauty.
  • Now if you really want to get into character you can pop a couple of golden colored lenses in your eye, but once again this is for those diehard Twilight fans. The other vampires have regular looking beautiful human style eyes.

Have fun!
