Unfortunately, I do not have access to a scanner/digital camera now, but I've already planned out my Vamp makeup-

1. Use the mixture of Ivory Foundation and white cream makeup on my face.
2. Use the black eye pencil on my eyes to line the top rim of my eyes, then fill in the widow's peak, sideburns & eyebrows. (I'm dark blonde, it's necessary)
3. Apply grey eye shadow around the eye socket area, for that withdrawn, undead look.
4. Use foundation stick on top lip, then use red lipstick on bottom lip (Probably because I draw my Vampyr boys like that!)
5. Unpainted white fake nails and step 1 mixture on hands
6. Spray Ben Nye sealent on face and hands
7. Apply blood around the mouth, if necessary

I'll hopefully try to take pictures step by step...but what do you guys think?

Lestat and Louis don't wear "vamp" makeup.... if you actually read the books you'd know that they look just like everyone else, only exceptionally beautiful, pale and with long hair.

geez... the day Anne Rice puts black lipstick on Louis.

Actually, I did model my Alucard makeup after Armand in IWTV. The difference is that I had pale blue veins drawn on under the white foundation mix. And I added purple claws. Hee hee. :bigtu:(See attachment)

lmao, black lipstick on Louis. I think the only way that would happen is if Lestat put it on him for chuckles.

Well here's the thing about vampires.... There are all types.

There are types like Don (from Mad Mad House) then there are types like Lestat (from the books, the movie Lestats were...) then there are ones like in the movies (such as Blade or worse "B" flicks).

My ideal vampire looks like seducers. They don't wear the "goth" makeup but rather have a glow to them. They're paler then normal humans but at the same time they have this radiance to them. This look can be achieved easily with a lighter tone makeup then your coloring and use a luminizer/shimmer (http://www.newyorkcolor.com/face/faceshimmer.html). Eyeline the eyes with a liquid liner (there are some that come in bronze, gold colors) to make them appear larger, use false eyelashes that are thick and long and use a lipliner in a goldish color, fill and top with a lip gloss then sealer. Use some type of eyeshadow that is shiney on your eyes and cheeks (I have this cream color eyeshadow (http://www.newyorkcolor.com/eyes/sprkledust.html) that is shiny and is relatively inexpensive, $2.25 from NYC). But that's just my idea of a vampire. ;)
