  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Start with a clean face and add a light layer of white cream makeup all over as a base.

    Step 2

    Grab a UV dayglo cream makeup wheel

    Step 3

    Apply the UV-activated color you'd like. Here we chose green.

    Step 4

    Now grab a green cream makeup that is NOT UV-activated and use this for shading.

    Step 5

    Create diamond-like shapes around the eye sockets.

    Step 6

    Fill in the entire eye socket with this dark green. When the black light turns on, the eyes will appear deep and sunken.

    Step 7

    Use the dark green to shade in the shadows of the face: temples, cheek bones, and around the hair line.

    Step 8

    Continue contouring wherever you'd like to make creases dark and visible, like frown marks and bags under the eyes.

    Step 9

    Step 10

    Contour more frown creases, under-eye bags, and creases in the chin, on the nose, and near the lips.

    Step 11

    Now take a makeup sponge and very gently blot to blend.

    Step 12

    This is how it should appear.

    Step 13

    Now take your highlight color. We chose UV-activated yellow which goes great with green.

    Step 14

    Highlight all the highest points on the face: the peaks of the eye brows, the tip of the nose, the tip of the chin, the jawline, the cheekbone, and the lips.

    Step 15

    Now gently blend with a makeup sponge.

    Step 16

    This is how the contouring should look. Now set with a translucent setting powder.

    Step 17

    Now grab a prosthetic horn.

    Step 18

    Grab your spirit gum.

    Step 19

    Paint spirit gum all over the base of the horn and on the chin with a q-tip.

    Step 20

    Attach the horn, holding it in place until it sets.

    Step 21

    This is what it should look like on your chin. You could also put two horn on your forehead if you wanted.

    Step 22

    Take some UV-activated paint in the color of the horn, in this case red, and paint the horn so it glows under a black light.

    Step 23

    Turn on the black light and see your contouring skills in action. Enjoy!
