MAKEUP - THE EXORCIST Kamri Jade
INTRODUCTION I had a lot of fun turning myself into Regan from the classic 1973 horror, The Exorcist. Since this was my first attempt at special effects makeup, I used basic materials: gauze, tissue paper, black lipstick, black eye-shadow, brown face powder, red, white, black face paint and Spirit Gum. For guidance I used a tutorial I found on YouTube. The process took five hours and I enjoyed every minute of it! Here are the steps.
1 START WITH A CLEAN FACE Wash face to remove any oil and dirt.
ADD WOUNDS + ALTER NOSE
SHAPE NOSE + ADD WHITE FACE PAINT
Using the skin friendly adhesive Spirit Gum, apply strips of tissue paper to the face where you want to create wounds. Add several layers of gauze over nose to make it broader.
When satisfied with the shape of your new nose, remove the excess tissue paper and gauze and add the first layer of white face paint.
