    Roger Bennett Riggle, licensed, professional make-up artist, provides an overview of how to create vampire Halloween makeup including how to set the makeup.

    Roger Bennett Riggle: My name is Roger Bennett Riggle and today we are doing a vampire transformation. We have completed all the coloring that we are going to put on the face, so now we need to set that coloring so that it stays for you during your parties and your nightly vampire expeditions. Don't forget we use the neutral set powder, neutral set looks white, but it is colorless. So, you can put it over any color and again you sprinkle it out very thinly, in a nice even pattern and you take care of the lower powder puff and you press it into the powder, so that you do pick up the powder on the puff. You can see that the puff is basically coated with the powder.

    Then to not mess up my work, I just pat this, the lower powder puff on the face, but I don't rub because I do not want to rub my lines away. So you get the model to close their eyes and you are going to basically pat a good amount of powder, all over the face. Careful, try not to get any of the makeup on your powder puff and here is some additional powder and I will also powder the neck. I powder the neck extremely well because when your vampire wears a shirt, collar whatever. Their rubbing action of the clothing can wipe away the makeup and it does some anyway, there is not a whole lot of way to prevent that, but I do powder the neck extra well for those purposes. Okay, and now we have basically set that makeup and now the next thing that we will show you is how to apply the fake hair.
