Halloween Makeup Cheap Tricks

Don't have enough of the color of face paint you need? You can make your own using a very simple recipe.

Frightfully Frugal Face Paint

1 tsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. cold cream
food coloring

Mix all ingredients together in an old muffin pan and you are ready to paint. Enough to make one color.

Fake Wound

1 Tbsp. Vaseline
cocoa powder
2-3 drops red food coloring

Place Vaseline in a bowl. Add food coloring. Blend with a toothpick. Stir in a pinch of cocoa to make a darker blood color. Separate tissue. Using 1 layer, tear a 2x3 inch piece and place at wound site. Cover with petroleum jelly and mold into the shape of a wound. The center should be lower than the sides. Fill the center with the red petroleum jelly mixture. Sprinkle center with some cocoa. Sprinkle a little around the edges of the wound to make darker.

A Big Thank You to "Wendy G." who shared these recipes today with us while enduring complaints about pinching masks. lol
