Getting into the Halloween Spirit

by: Kenneth Cossin

Last week, the Film Program’s makeup department here at Full Sail University put on a

demonstration for students on how to do Halloween makeup for cheap.  These makeup tips are easy to do and easy to duplicate.

Some suggested makeup purchases:

  • Foundation from local drug store
  • Wolf novelty makeup from any Halloween outlet for various colors
  • Gelatin for making thick blood
  • Karo syrup for making thinner blood
  • Bread crumbs for making flaky skin
  • Latex for creating fake skin and wounds
  • Food color to dye to blood
  • Props and prosthetics to add flair

Mix and match any or all of the above to create different themes.  Use photos as a reference.  Be creative and have fun!

Happy Halloween
