The description of Ideas Make Up Ghost
In unofficial research among adults, a far larger percentage of women would like to dress as ghosts, complete with face makeup, than men. Perhaps this is due to cultural norms surrounding makeup—men generally have far less experience, and struggle even figuring out how to use the stuff, while for the ladies, it's just a matter of creating a different look.
we will see a very cool example of a male ghost, but the majority of the examples will be women (of course, the same techniques can be used across genders).
Now, most ghosts share predictable looks. The most easily identifiable features of a ghost are:
Dark circles around the eyes
Ghosts are almost always on edge, so they don't get a lot of sleep. That results in nearly all of them having dark circles around their eyes from walking around all night—we all know the living who participate in similar behavior have the same problems ;-).
So when thinking of ghost makeup, you will need to have a white base and dark circles around your eyes, no matter how you customize the rest of your design.
You can use various colors for the dark circles, such as:
Black and gray
Multiple shades of gray
Navy blue and gray
Shades of brown or purple
How to Apply the Makeup
You will need:
White cream foundation (or base) makeup
White face powder
Suggested: white eyeliner, dark lipstick, and other eyeshadows and brushes for bruised/veined effects
Basic instructions (we will go over how to get creative with this look further down):
Use the stippling brush to apply the white cream foundation makeup. If you are unfamiliar with how to use a stippling brush (it requires more of a dabbing motion than a painting one), watch the "Undead Ghost Makeup" video in the tutorial section.
Use the blending brush and dark eyeshadow to create rings around the eyes.
Optional: Paint veins around the eyes and temples and line your inner lower eyelid with white eyeliner.
Use the blending brush and dark eyeshadow to create contours on your cheeks and the sides of your nose.
Ghost Lip Makeup
Option 1: Dark Lips
Nearly everyone who creates their own ghost makeup uses a dark lip color. I think dark lips are an excellent choice when dressing as something no longer living, because they give the sense of being cold. Almost any dark shade will do, with dark blue, burgundy, and black being among the best choices.
Option 2: White Lips
Having said that, I have also included an interesting contrast to the usual practice. One woman ghost below is a professional model who had her lips painted the same white as her face.
Option 3: Cracked Lips
Another thing some people choose to do is crack their lips to add to the impression that they are no longer living. Some only need to leave their lips alone for the day to generate the cracked, chapped look. If you are blessed with healthy lips, dab them with a thick concealer, which will dry and crack. You can cover the concealer with a matte lipstick.
