Thanos Infinity War Makeup Tutorial

Over the past decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a juggernaut of geek cinema, breaking record after box office record. If there’s been a complaint about the franchise, however, it’s been that the supervillains have been rather lackluster. Not Thanos, though. He’s a juggernaut all by himself. (Though he shouldn’t be confused with the actual Juggernaut from Deadpool 2, but let’s not mix our metaphors here.) Thanos has such a powerful onscreen presence that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do a makeup tutorial! So grab your liquid latex and purple makeup and follow along to our Thanos Infinity War makeup tutorial!
