Exposed skull special fx makeup tutorial

By  | 

You’re never dull with an exposed skull!

In this episode Elli rips up her blonde hair by the scalp and expose a piece of delicious skull. The Exposed Skull Special FX Makeup Tutorial teaches you how to create a fake skull bone and how you can re-use cool effects by building them on items such as a wig. In the Exposed Skull Special FX Makeup Tutorial there’s also a double shout out since this look was inspired by two very talented makeup artists. Namely @the_degradation100 and @janinehohmann_artist so don’t forget to go check them out on Instagram. Such amazing talents.

We suggest you improve this makeup effect and create more contrast between the exposed skull and hair by using a darker wig. Elli kinda looks awesome in bright blond colours so we went with a super white wig for this one. Also experiment with items sticking out of the head, such as a hammer, nails and things like that. Let your imagination run wild.

If you like videos like this one we also recommend you check out exposed brains tutorial right here! It’s a much more gory version of this, with the brain coming out. A definite crowd pleaser but it might be tough for people to keep their food down hehe.

    I just wanted to ask you, how do you take latex off? Do you just peel it off?
    • Maris Cait

      11 months ago

      Amal K.O But if you cannot find Isopropyl Myristate at a pharmacy near you then your best chance would be to peel off the latex. A downside to peeling off the latex is that it can damage your skin and leave red rashes.
    • Maris Cait

      11 months ago

      Amal K.O A good way to remove liquid latex is to use Isopropyl Myristate. It is a safe way to take off latex without going through the pain of ripping off the latex🙂
    • Crafty Lady

      11 months ago

      Amal K.O probably the same way

    can you use ellimorph instead?
    • ellimacs sfx makeup

      11 months ago

      You probably could but the Ellimorph is a lot more difficult to work with for a look like this, unless you're a ninja.
    • Elizabeth Campa

      11 months ago

      Ichabod Well, ellimorph is a plastic SO I don't think it would "absorb" the paint as well as the clay. But if you try it let us know how it turns out!
    • Nikie Martin

      11 months ago

      Ichabod you could try, but its easier to get the messy cracks and detail into clay, I think
  57. NiKcKuCosplay

    11 months ago

    It´s really cool, but I think it looks a little bit like a small hat, because your hair under the wig, the "leftovers" of the wig and the clay are to thick. Is there maybe a chance to do it without a wig and this thick clay? Maybe you can Show this, too :-)
    • Chakram

      11 months ago

      NiKcKuCosplay you could do Almost the same thing She did, just with a baldcap instead. Cut a Hole in the wig and place the baldcap under it. Then use latex on top to create the wound edge and details as needed :)

    how do you tell if the latex is dry
    • ellimacs sfx makeup

      11 months ago

      Just gently touch it with a finger tip. In this case it only has to be dry enough to paint on. If you wanna be sure just create the wig part and leave it over night :)

    I had brain surgery when I was younger and I had blonde hair at the time, they cut my scalp open from ear to ear, and my hair was stained red from the blood so badly, just like this, it took about a month to get it all out.
