The key to a convincing kid-size vampire costume is the makeup. Everyone will know recognize your little Prince of Darkness by his pale skin, dramatically arched eyebrows and pointed teeth. A black cape completes the look, giving the costume a theatrical flair.
Things You'll Need
- White face paint
- Charcoal eye shadow
- Red eye shadow or red blusher
- Black eyeliner
- Black mascara
- Fake blood
- Red lipstick
- Makeup sponge
- Fake fangs
Cover the entire face with white face paint. Apply lightly, so it covers the skin, but does not appear too thick or pasty.
Apply charcoal eye shadow to the eyelids and up to the eyebrows. Smudge the charcoal shadow just underneath the eyes.
Apply red eye shadow or red blusher below the smudged charcoal beneath the eyes. Use the makeup sponge to lightly smear the red.
Line the upper and lower eyelids with black eyeliner. Apply black mascara to the eyelashes.
Apply red lipstick to the lips. The lips will stand out like blood against the pale white face paint.
Dab several drops of fake blood at the corners of the mouth.
Cover the teeth with the fake vampire fangs.
Darken light-colored eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil to enhance the paleness of the face and make the eyebrows look more pointed and angular.
Tips & Warnings
- Create a more death-like appearance by smearing red eye shadow near the eyebrows.
