The best foundation for Halloween makeup worthy of the name remains the white complexion. If it is possible to opt for a very clear foundation, the best is still to turn to a white greasy make-up, in other words a special make-up for the face and the body. To apply it well, nothing could be simpler: as we apply our face powderwe take a brush or our beauty blender and the material is stretched uniformly over the entire face.

How to get a fake scar?
To make a fake scar, you need a little more patience and concentration because things get a little complicated. Before you start, you need to gather: latex, fake blood, foundation, black makeup, a brush and small scissors.
First step: using a sponge, tap the liquid latex over the entire area where the wound will be created. Wait for the latex to dry and repeat the operation several times. The drying between two coats can be accelerated using a hair dryer. Finally, make up the latex (which becomes white as the layers progress) with foundation in order to hide the demarcations with the natural skin color.
Second step: using small scissors, incise the latex to form the wound. Be careful not to hurt yourself.
Third step: make up the inside of the wound with a dark shade. Black is preferred.
Fourth step: using a brush, begin to reproduce small splashes all around the wound. Then fill it entirely with fake blood. Do not hesitate to abuse it in order to make the effect more real.
And to remove it then? A bit of’cleansing oil enough. Slide your fingers inside the fake wound and massage gently. The latex will gently peel off.
