Eyes wide shut makeup tutorial

By  | 

This is the the gory eyes wide shut masquerade look that will turn heads at any costume party

With the Eyes wide shut look we wanted to create something that was very easy for anyone to recreate but at the same time gory and intense enough to turn heads at costume parties. Inspired by the look of classic masquerade masks of the olden days the Eyes wide shut makeup gives the illusion of having your skin ripped off around your eyes and cheeks. The wound itself will then reveal the bones of your skull as well as a big bloody mess.

The creation process is pretty straight forward and we believe this is so simple to recreate that it might become a favourite with many beginners and aspiring sfx makeup artists out there. We’ve basically only used liquid latex, cotton and red yarn to achieve the whole effect. Of course there’s some colour and fake blood as well, but other than that, very basic. If you want to you can use the exact same method to create similar wound anyehere on your body. Perfect if you need some exposed bones or deeper wound for your independent movie project or Halloween party.

And for all of those who wonders the answer is no. This makeup has nothing to do with the movie Eyes Wide Shut starring Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. We just thought the name Eyes Wide Shut fit this Halloween makeup tutorial perfectly.

    Since you put the latex on the skin first, is it possible to just 'peel' this off and reuse it another time? Or do you have to redo it everytime you want this look?

    Do a carved pumpkin face! Also the Vaseline is enough to protect your eyebrows from the latex? Should you cover brows with glue and powder before latex?
