It is easy to look very dead with common household 'makeup'. Follow these steps to look like you were just exhumed.

All  you need is:

Tissue paper (the gift wrap kind)
Light corn syrup (aka Karo Syrup)
Nesquik powder
Cocoa powder
Possibly some 'normal' powder makeup/eyeshadow and a grease pencil
Spray temporary hair coloring
Thrift Store Clothes
Miscellaneous Spray Paint

Step 1: Start Fresh

Start with a clean dry face wearing clothes that you can throw away.


That looks great! Looks like it would work well for mummy type makeup too!
Thanks! <br>Great suggestion. I never thought of it. I guess almost any 'dead' 'character' costume can benefit from this makeup.
Congratulations on being a finalist in the Halloween contest!!! Can&rsquo;t wait to see if you win! Good luck!
