    Default Nosferatu makeup question

    Hi,

    I am dressing up as Nosferatu this Halloween. I have most of the pieces for the costume but I had a question about the makeup.

    My face is rounder but I need to achieve a "gaunt" look for Nosferatu. In particular I want to construct larger cheekbones and then contour them with makeup.

    Could I achieve this effect liquid latex and toilet paper/cotton/etc.? Or would I be better off using nose wax/putty? At a costume store I was advised to use toilet paper because it is difficult for an amateur like myself to work with wax. What do you all think?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's not difficult at all to use the wax. Just do a couple of searches on Youtube. To sink your cheeks in, use darker shades of makeup on them and lighter makeup colors on your actual cheekbones (to enhance them). I would rather use the nose and scar wax (i use Synwax) to build up the actual ridges of my cheeks. G'luck.
    If a kid cries...I did it right.
