My next costume is Dark Link from the Legend of Zelda games, and I planned on having some fun with black makeup around the eyes. I'm planning on painting a mask type...thing.... around my eyes to the sides of my face. My only problem is- I have NO idea what to do it with. Eyeliner is too expensive really, for THAT much coverage. Eyeshadow isn't opaque enough, and greasepaints smudge.
I'm currently clueless as to what I can do. I've heard people mention using a powder over greasepaints to keep it from smudging- but what kind of powder? And how does it make the paint 'set?'
ANY and all help/suggestions/tips would be VERY appreciated. I really want this to look good.
