    Professional makeup artist Roger Riggle shows how to create witch makeup for Halloween including the second part of adding highlights and shadows.

    Roger Bennett Riggle: Hello! My name is Roger Bennett Riggle and we are doing a witch transformation for Halloween. We have completed both sides of the highlight now to give us a road map as to where the wrinkles actually go. So now with the wrinkles we want to use a darker color and we have chosen the forest green color. So I am going to take my brush and I have already created my road map now. So I know where the wrinkles go, so I am not painting anything in falsely. I am going to start in under the eyes and go up through these frown lines, okay and then I have a couple of nice wrinkles across here the forehead. And they are not necessarily even, they curve down on the sides, they curve down in the middle, etcetera, etcetera. There are a few wrinkles here and I constantly start at the top and move down the face, thats the best way to do it. Here at the eye; have them looked down and you can paint a heavy line right through the ridge, right over the ball of the eye and then I can see where I have some crows feet coming out here from my highlight design. Lets move down to the nose. Again see the dark we put in the nose here, we want to continue that right through the face so that you dont see a real difference between the face and the prosthetics. So you start to blend one into the other and you can see there is an indentation here so we can paint a shadow in here. As I told you, you can always touch up this chin later and thats what we are doing and we can create a gel right here by doing a teardrop shape right in this area, okay. There is also the neck, we work on down here and we can see some wrinkles happening here in the neck and we accentuate them with some lines in that way. Right here where the brow, where the temple breaks, right here and it is a ridge put a little dash of color there and underneath the cheekbone out to the corner of the eye, you want to put a dash of color there. Okay and we are going to blend those and sink those in, at this point I take my finger and I give an indentation to the temple. You can always add a little bit more color if you need it, start sparsely because it is easy to put too much color on. These colors are extremely pigmented. So you just want to tap on a little bit to begin with and you can always add more as you go. And then we have a deep crevice right there at the eye and that can blend right on into the gel part of the eye. And then I will have her look up and I am going to do thin to fat right under here for an eye bag, okay. There are a few wrinkles over the lips, we can accentuate those and we want a nasty turned down mouth. So I might put some wrinkles here at the corners of the mouth so that it looks turned down and evil. You want it to look evil, she is not smiling, she is not a kind witch. She is a little menacing witch and that is a preliminary look at how we paint in the wrinkles and now we will use the same exact technique on the left side of her face.
