(If I had gotten a close up on my face and taken the picture at the beginning of the night instead of the end it would have looked a lot better, but oh well! Too late!)
Things you will need:
1- Black eyeshadow
2- Clothing you don't mind possibly ruining or tearing
3- Red Gel Food Coloring (I used Betty Crocker and it worked great)
4- A very light shade of liquid foundation.
5- Some kind of hair gel that will keep your hair looking messy
What you need to do:
1- Get dressed in clothing you don't mind possibly ruining with fake blood or tearing to look more rugged.
2-Make your hair look at messy as possible using some kind of styling gel.
3-Put on a good coat of the liquid foundation (do not add blush!).
4-Put black eye shadow underneath your eyes with your finger.
5-Smear the red gel food coloring all over your body. Be sure to get some on your lips and all over your chin.
TA-DA! I'm not sure how the food coloring would look if you smeared it on your clothing because I didn't go that far. I am just posting this because I found a lot of information online that made the makeup aspect seem so much more complicated. I was trying to add the food coloring into corn syrup, but it just was way too pale. I even tried adding things like chocolate syrup, a drop of blue food coloring, and other ingredients. There probably is a way to make terrific blood using corn syrup and food coloring, but if you just want something super fast that looks good then I am just trying to save you some time and effort! I was worried I wouldn't be able to get the food coloring off, but I had it on my skin for almost 6 hours with no problems. It came off in the shower with regular soap and no scrubbing. I am glad that I wont be freaking out all the children in the Children's Department tomorrow! :)
