Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: How to Start
Start with a clean face
use a primer or moisturizer to make your skin ready for the makeup.
it's also easier to pull your hair back
Step 2: Using Eyeshadows for Shading
i'm using ELF eyeshadows to shade my face into a manlier one, and i'm also using them to shade and blend the colours of the painted parts on my body (superman suit, batman suit, batman mask)
Step 3: Shading Your Face
use a brown eyeshadow that is cool toned, and darker than your natural skin.
i'm applying the eyeshadow with a fluffy brush to avoid any harsh lines and I'm blending them out so they look seamless.
I looked at the picture of superman and tried my best to recreate his face shape.
focus on the nose, forhead, cheekbone and jawline/chin
Step 4: Enhancing Your Face Shape
now that i've got a basis i'm deepening up some of the shading.
i'm going in with a darker shade for my cheekbones and above my eye to make it look more sunken in.
Step 5: Use Facepaints
I use Grimas facepaints to paint my hair, and the suits
Don't use any other paint than face/bodypaint. other paints can be toxic for your skin
Step 6: Create Superman's Hair
I'm creating superman's hairline with black facepaint and i'm filling it in.
i'm also painting the visible part of my hair to blend the black colour in
Step 7: Tracing the Batman Mask Shape
with a detailing brush and black facepaint i'm tracing the shape of the batman mask so I know where to paint
Step 8: Filling in the Batman Mask
I'm filling in the part of my face where the mask goes, and leaving the traced part open.
since it's a suit I found it logical to fill in my ear as well
Step 9: Shading the Mask
since the mask is black I cant shade with shadows, so i'm just highlighting it.
for this i'm using white facepaint and i'm blending that out with a fluffy brush and white eyeshadow
Step 10: Painting and Shading the Superman Suit
with blue, red, and yellow faceaint i'm recreating the suit.
it's easier to recreate if you have a reference photo.
i'm shading everything with a darker tone of eyeshadow
Step 11: Painting and Shading the Batman Suit
For the batman suit i'm doing the same steps, but for his suit i need black and grey facepaints and eyeshadows
Step 12: The Complete Look!
And this is how it looks in proper lighting and edited when it's done! :D
Hope you guys liked my creation
