The Bride of Frankenstein - Black Light Makeup

By KatieAlves
1K Favourites

Black light paints are way too fun not to do makeup tutorials with! Go check out the tutorial on how I created this! 

Don't my eyes look so strange with the black light? 

I used my regular black wig and added white extensions to it that was originally for my Ursula cosplay, but they were too straight and didn't match my wig. I'm happy I was finally able to use them! 

Have suggestions for my next Halloween looks? Let me know!

What makeup did you use to make it glow?
KatieAlves's avatar
It's from Kryolan's UV reactive face paint palette.

how do you keep your wigs so nice?
long ones are hard to keep from tangling and getting ratty and puffy >.<
KatieAlves's avatar
This one is actually quite ratty at the bottom, but this one is getting old. The camera seems to smooth it out nicely. 
When brushing it, I don't yank on the knots. I do gentle strokes. It gets puffy because the hairs get stretched and go all kinky.

haha magic camera! yeah, i try to be very gentle and careful with my wigs...especially since they like to get jacked up at the ends
though most of them are shorter and dont have as much of a problem
i usually feel like i never want to wear my long one cuz im afraid of ruining it further...
KatieAlves's avatar
I agree. I usually only wear mine for photos because I'm afraid to wreck them too. They just tangle so easily!
