Introduction: Mortal Kombat Reptile Face Paint

This was an unplanned look, but I hope you guys still enjoy! Be sure to check out my youtube page! I will be entering the NYX Face Awards and I could use your help! Thanks! <3

Step 1: Sketch It Out

I, as always, used a white eyeliner to sketch out my look. This is REALLY important if your look is not planned such as mine was in this moment.

Step 2: Black

Using black from Mehron I filled in that first section.

Step 3: Gray

Using Gray from Mehron I filled in that bottom section.

Step 4: Details

I used silver from Mehron to outline the black. Then I grabbed some matte black eye shadow to shadow under the silver. After that I grabbed black from Mehron again and added lines into the gray, curving them around the jawline. After that I went on one side of all the black lines with white from Mehron and then re-added shadows I may have lost with that same eye shadow.

Step 5: Green

I filled in the eye section with green from Mehron.

Step 6: Highlights

Using white I highlighted inside the black, this will help it have a leatherish look. I used my fingers to smear it out.

Step 7: Eye Detail

Using matte black and green eye shadow from ULTA I added wrinkles and texture to his eyes, and I also used white body paint to highlight.

Step 8: Body

Step 10: Chest Plate

Using green and black I filled in the chest plate, then I used a gold eye shadow from NYX over the green to make it stand out from the green body.

Step 11: Body

Using green from Mehron I filled in the rest of the body and used black matte eye shadow from ULTA to shadow around the straps and chest plate.

Step 12: Stitching

Using white from Mehron I added stitching on all the straps as well as the neck part.

I almost forgot the head thing! Using neon green from bennye I added the head... thing?

This is amazing! It's hard to see anything human. It's especially helpful telling us what brands you used.

Do you eat anything special (like something grape) to color your tongue, too?

Thanks! and yeah I suppose you could eat like a grape jolly rancher. haha.
