You've sent in a few requests for some tips on facepaint for Halloween, so we've started out with some fairly straightforward ideas and then moved onto the more challenging ones further down.
Snazaroo water based face paint is generally the most reliable to use and available from local supplier Wardrobe Fancy Dress - which is also a good place to pick up some accessories! It can be found online fairly easily too.
Most facepainters work with a brush for details and small piece of sponge for covering large areas - these are fairly easy to pick up. However the best tool is always a talented friend and a bit of practise!
If you've not used a facepaint before, make sure you check the ingredients for allergies and test a small patch of your skin first.
IF you're looking for something a little more gory and striking however, here are some rather ghoulish ideas - but be warned: they're not for the faint-hearted!
Look for latex scar kits if you're interested in these effects - but beware, quite a few people are allergic to latex, so again, test an small patch of skin somewhere safe first before covering your face with it!
When planning your night out, do remember that facepaint and gore may require a little more maintenance than your usual cosmetic regimen - so do make use of our primping and powdering stall to keep looking your most striking all the way through the night!
