HOMEMADE HALLOWEEN MAKEUP, FACE PAINT, BRUISES AND FAKE BLOOD

Subject: Halloween Craft
Grade: All (with adult assistance for the young ones)
Age: All (with adult assistance for the young ones)

Submitted by: Amanda Formaro, WebMom at FamilyCorner.com Magazine.

Dressing up for Halloween is so much fun! Enjoy it even more knowing that you and your little goblins prepared their faces for the frightful night. Face paint is inexpensive when you make it yourself, and it's safer than a mask that can obscure vision. Try these ghoulish recipes yourself!

Homemade Bruises

You will need:
  • deep blue powder eyeshadow
  • charcoal or smoke gray powder eyeshadow
  • shimmery green powder eyeshadow
  • make up brush
Using a blot of deep blue powder eye shadow, apply with a wet make up brush. Use your fingertips to add blots of charcoal gray and blue shadows. Touch up the edges with a shimmery olive green. Smudge the bruise to complete.

Homemade Blood

You will need:
  • 1/2 bottle of light corn syrup
  • very hot water
  • squirt of liquid soap
  • red food coloring
  • blue or green food coloring (optional)
Pour light corn syrup into a bowl and add hot water sparingly, adding and stirring until you have the right consistency. Add a squirt of liquid soap to make it the blood easy to clean off later. Tint with red food coloring. You may add a drop of blue or green if you like to make the blood a darker color. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Smear on as needed!
