Freddy Krueger Makeup for Women
If you’re opting not to wear a mask with your Freddy costume then you are going to need a pretty sick Freddy Krueger makeup application. First, apply primer all over the face. Swipe red eye shadow onto the creases of the eyelid. Pack black shadow onto tops of eyelids to create a graphic red and black eye effect. Blend them together, add black eyeliner (top and bottom), and smudge the same red shadow underneath both eyes. Now, it’s time for the gruesome burn marks! Draw burn mark shapes all over the face with a light eyeliner pencil and color them in with a pink shadow or blush. Define outer edges of your fake wounds by blending a slightly darker hue of blush or shadow into the wounds. Do this again, focusing on the outer edges of the burn marks with an even darker shadow or blush. This creates dimension. Then use a fluffing brush to diffuse the edges of the wounds and blend them into your skin. Take various shades of concealer and draw random lines on your skin to make a melted skin effect. Apply pink hued shadow all over your face for just the right effect. Our model wears a “rotted” tooth enamel on her teeth for a creepy effect, so feel free to do the same. Then, just top your look off with a fedora and you’ll be officially ready to start hanging out on Elm Street!
