The Tools

  • Foundation - 2 shades lighter than your normal color
  • Pink blush
  • Pink or baby blue eye shadow
  • Black eyeliner
  • Fake eyelashes
  • Pink lipstick
  • White eyeliner
  • Nude stockings
  • Black Sharpie

Get the Look

Base: Apply foundation all over; make sure to completely cover eyebrows and lips.
Eyes: Apply eye shadow on just above natural crease. Draw thin eyebrow just above the natural eyebrow line. Line eyes along the lashes on the top and apply fake eyelashes. Line bottom of eye with white eyeliner. Draw a semicircle from outer corner of lower eye to inner corner of lower eye, fill the circle in with white eyeliner. Line under the white eyeliner with black eyeliner. Draw exaggerated eyelashes under bottom line.
Cheeks: Brush pink blush onto the apple of cheeks, do not blend. Draw smattering of freckles on cheeks with eyeliner.
Lips: Use pink liner on outside line of center on top and bottom lips – do not line sides. Use lipstick in center only for a sweetheart lip effect.
Crack: Use black eyeliner on forehead or cheek to make a faux crack - first draw an asymmetrical hole and then rigid lines leading away from hole.

Complete the Look

Create a hair bow on the top of your head - Gather hair in high ponytail. Loop hair through elastic, with about 6 inches of hair sticking out toward face. Divide bun into two equal parts, pull loose ends over the divide and pin in the back. Hold with hairspray.
Add to creepy factor by adding faux plastic joints. Draw circles around the knees of nude stockings with a black sharpie.
