Monster Fingers

Makeup is the type of thing that always adds that something special to a costume. No matter how hard you work on a costume, the actual garment plays second fiddle when you do the makeup right. Makeup for costumes isn’t just blush and eyeliner either. For true costume greatness you need to add prosthetic and other tricks that have had stage costumes and halloween getups looking creepy for years. The use of items like monster fingers with blended makeup on the hands makes you look realistic. Rather, it makes you look like the caricature of a monster, devil or witch that most people carry in their minds. Those gross fingers will serve you well on Halloween, when the compliments will come flying your way. You won’t know what to do with all the added attention.

Costume makeup is the type of thing that those who care about costume use. To show off how much you’re really interested in costume event, make use of things like witch fingers for that witch costume. Your costume will look perfectly creepy and gross with green witch fingers. That horrible uncirculated look is fantastic for Halloween night. Your green hands will scare anyone without a sharp eye. Colors for fingers come to match any costume really from devil red to corpse gray there are fingers for your next costume. Whatever it is try to put that extra bit of effort in that will have your next costume looking truly professional. And truly scary!

Cheap Costume Makeup

Makeup for costumes isn’t the same thing as makeup for lookin’ hot. Trust us you don’t want real blood red blush if you’re going out. Well, maybe if you’re a goth. Besides this though you don’t want to use expensive makeup on costumes. Especially if you need to use a ton of make up. School plays and theater productions often go through a ton of makeup for their performances. Most budgets of any theater production these days is pretty small, so you can’t be using expensive department store products. Chanel is out and so too even Covergril. For costumes you need costume makeup. Cheap stuff in shades that will get you noticed. NOT to say that cheap blush in natural tones isn’t available, because it most certainly is!

Other than what you traditionally think of as costume makeup such as scary Halloween makeup kits with fake blood there are cooler items still. Costume prosthetics come in a ton of different styles. From a bolted eye piece, that is a sort of Man in the Iron mask meets Pirate, to elf ears there are plenty of items that will have you looking in character in no time. Do follow the instructions on the package though, application is important if you want your prosthetic to stay in place for all of Halloween night. Or for your entire scene in the big theatrical production.

Costume makeup lets you make any costume more realistic or more fanciful! For cheap too! What could be better?
