Vampire Make-up

Post by HisLiquidTopazEyes »

Considering the fact that I'm close to 30 and haven't spent much time wearing make-up, I am in serious need of help. I haven't tried wearing foundation in over 10 years, and I absolutely hated it back then. So, I'm wondering if any of you can recommend a brand or line of foundation that would give someone a porcelain smooth look, like you would find on Alice or Rosalie. Basically one that makes you look soft, and still takes away all of the major imperfections. Also, if you have any other vampy make-up suggestions, I would love to hear them.

I want to look my best for the Breaking Dawn Release Party!

well, the ones i use are either Maxfactor colour adapt foundation or miracle touch liquid illusion foundation. using translucent powder ontop makes it look extra flawless.

for that extra vampire touch, body glitter :D

I'm dressing up as Rosalie (go blondes!) and what my friend and I are doing (she's going as Alice) is using this white shimmer powder that we used in a show about a year ago. I'm not sure what brand it is, but just look for "white shimmer (or sparkle)" in the title. I'm already extremely pale (they don't even make foundation in a shade pale enough for me!) but the powder really finishes the look off. And yes you will sparkle a little bit (but not too much) but hey, what vampire doesn't sparkle? :) hope this helps!

There were many things I wanted to say, some of them not nice at all, and others more disgustingly gooey and romantic than he probably dreamed I was capable of. Rather than embarrass my self with either, I whispered, "Yes."[/color]

hehe it's really lots of fun to go vamp (I was 'Akasha' from Queen of the Damned for my friend's costume party a while ago) :D
I use Napoleon Perdis foundation on the VERY rare occasion that I do use make-up and it's been the best I've tried (my best friend is a beauty therapist and she also likes the Napoleon...)
it's also very important to use a primer (it's a special moisturising cream) which helps the foundation on smooth and stay that way.... and I also prefer a pressed rather than a loose powder (I'm old school and don't like those 2-in-1 foundation/powder mixes)
with concealer... try some 'green' for red spots (green cancels out red) but use cautiously ;p

as for artistic colouring.... it's dark all the way (not necessarily gothic/black, but there are some gorgeous dark reds and purples in particular which go wonderfully with a metallic gold, bronze or silver....)
anywho that's my two cents - hope it's useful ;)

I'm 35 and I rarely wear makeup either. I did a test run on my vampire make up the other day and I think it is going to be so awesome. I'm going to wear a red strapless ball gown and see if I can get some goth make-up for the pale white effect and then paint it over with sparkle lotion. I am so jazzed with all of this. I have two other friends going with me to the premier in formal gowns and 3 others also from my work who are now going to go in formal attire as of just a few days ago. Who says 30+ isn't young?!

if you have the extra money to spend, i recomend MAC white horror make-up. Gerard Way uses it and he also uses Ben Nye Stage Makeup which is Professional Grade makeup and its used on broadway, etc.
But yes, Ben Nye and MAC makeup I high recommend. Ben Nye is cheaper than MAC makeup.

click on make up and then on any of the Ben Nye links.

MAC is really good. Especially if you don't wear make-up that often, it won't cause break outs or anything and gives a really smooth finish.
