Suggest makeup for a half skeleton face?

Ok so I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place or whatever but I really need help!
I need some good make up but cheap-ish that is suitable for a half skeleton
face, nothing too over kill though just simple. I have black eye shadow that
I have tried with and it works well but if there are any better suggestions
please let me know! I really appreciate it ^-^

This is my half-assed, "I'm pretty bored," skull makeup.

I used a variety of eyeliners (mostly gels and pencils), black eyeshadow to set it, and grays and muted purples for shading. I don't have a white foundation so I used the palest one I owned and set it with an off-white eyeshadow. You can use white eyeliner to make highlights as well.

In terms of actual products that I used, for the black parts, I used a Sephora black shadow, a Maybelline gel liner, and Rimmel Special Eyes eyeliner pencil (seriously it's not bad and it's only $3). For the shading, I used a Rimmel quad with matte grays and a discontinued Revlon purple shadow. And for the pale base, I think I used Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse (though Revlon Colorstay or L'Oreal True Match are much better foundations) and for the eyeshadow I set it with, I just used a random shadow from a beauty supply store. Any pale matte shade will do.
What's this for? It's a wig.
What's it for? To disguise yourself from yourself.

You can also use NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. They come in a bunch of colors and work really well for things like this. They also make great bases for eyeshadow to make colors look brighter! They're available at Ulta for ~$5.
