Follow These Steps to Create this Look
Step One: Apply a basic foundation (Product #DD05) to your entire face with a damp sponge, blending well.
Step Two: Using a damp sponge and Mehron’s Shadow Liner in Smoky Taupe (Product #DD139), apply shadow and contour to the face around the top of the head, sides of the face, under the lower lip and under the cheekbones. Add a little shading along the sides of the nose as well.
Step Three: With a stippling brush and Mehron’s E.Y.E. Cream- Black (Product #DD107), deepen the shadows a bit with this color. Then tap on some stubble in the beard area.
Step Four: Using the red color from Mehron’s Tri-Color Pirate Palette (Product # DD445) add a scar with a narrow brush or a q-tip applicator.
Step Five: Go over the scar with Mehron’s Coagulated Blood Gel (Product #DD533). This will give the scar a “freshly cut” look that is very realistic!
Step Six: Using Mehron’s Tooth FX-Nicotine (Product #DD222), paint the product on dry teeth until you have reached the desired effect; let dry. Next apply the Tooth FX in Black (Product #DD220). The two of these in combination will make your pirate’s teeth look completely rotten and disgusting!
Now it’s time to go carefully put on your best pirate gear. Don’t forget your eye patch, weaponry and other pirate accessories to really complete your look. Arggh!
