How to Apply Kids' Vampire Makeup

Save

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.
