Black Eye Makeup - Advice


Hey all,

With Halloween coming soon, what is the best eye makeup to wear under a cowl? Can't have anything that's bleeding, gooey, shiny, or cracking....what are some suggestions? I'm thinking of maybe NOT putting lenses in now, so I want to have an idea of what's good to use, just in case. Thanks!

Although I've never donned a Batman costume cowl, I've had experience with both Ben Nye and Mehron grease-based makeup. I'd definitely recommend either of those over any store-bought cream (or creme)makeup.

Cream tends to dry out and crack after a short period of time, forcing you to re-apply.

Also, use 'barrier spray'. It provides a base for the makeup as well as making it easier to remove after the session. It also seals the makeup to a certain extent.

In short: Close eyes; spray barrier spray; apply makeup; spray barrier spray again.

Wear cowl and enjoy. :)

Other Brothers will chime in if ths doesn't work for cowls.

EDIT: This is what I used last year for our Blue Man Group project (obviously in blue):

What about that sports eye liner football players use? Doe anyone have any experience with that?

At Wallmart CAMMOPACK I find to be the best,
this is used for hunting and military use, it is water proof and does not crack at all and it wont run into your eyes if you sweat alittle. this is the best that I know of.

I like the UK stage makeup made by Snazzaroo. Very Black and doesn't run that much with sweat.

I used Eye Black from the local Modell's...same stuff football/baseball players use. It works great, doesn't sweat off, and the black color stays dark and doesn't fade or look wimpy :guitar
