Using the Reel FX Vampire, Horror Makeup Kit

Supplies:

  • Reel FX Vampire, Horror Makeup Kit
  • Hand sanitizer, toner or face cleanser
  • No-color or translucent face powder
  • Liquid latex
  • Powder brush
  • Thin paint brushes
  • Cotton
  • Moisturizer
  • Wig

Step 1:

Clean hands and make sure skin area is clean using toner.

Step 2:

Align and cut your latex mask from your kit to fit your model's face, making sure the eye areas are clear.  This mask is recommended for a full size adult, but if the appliance is still too big, fill all hollow areas with cotton.



Step 3:

Pre-color your mask using colors from your kit.  Use a thin paint brush to apply the color and use baby oil to help blend and move the makeup color.   To recess any part of the mask, use dark colors.  To accent higher points, use lighter colors.



Step 4:

Lightly coat the bridge of the nose of both your mask and your model with spirit gum. (Spirit gum is a contact adhesive.  For best usage, let it get tacky on both sides before placing parts together.  Apply pressure for 30 seconds.) 



Step 5:

Work from the inner to outer edges of your mask, one section at a time with the spirit gum.  Move up to the forehead, then under and around the eyes.  (Be careful not to apply the spirit gum too close to the eyes.)



Step 6:

Take a sponge and dip it into liquid latex.  Carefully blot (stipple) over a thin layer to the edges of your mask.  Let dry and powder.



Step 7:

Color any additional details with your Reel FX Vampire, Horror Makeup Kit.  Pay special attention to the edges around the eyes and any exposed skin that needs blending.

Step 8:

Fit the teeth included in the kit and add a wig (not included) for extra flare.

Step 9:

Add a little blood from your kit and you're good to go!

Removal:

Gently use any oily makeup remover and slowly peel back and use a q-tip to put the makeup remover under the mask.  Wash with soap and warm water.
