Face OffHow-ToMummy

By Megan Areford

Special Effects is not just blood and gore. Today, we are going to do a "Fierce Mummy". Some of my favorite makeups to do, incorporates horror and beauty.


  • Mud mask
  • Red lipstick
  • Dark red lip liner
  • Black eyeliner pencil
  • Black eyeshadow
  • Black food coloring (optional)
  • Toothbrush (optional)
  • Brown powder
  • Paintbrush
  • Hair brush
  • Hair tie (optional)
  • Water (optional)
  • Hair band

Step 1:

Take your black eyeshadow and apply with a soft makeup brush. Any kind will do. Apply the black eyeshadow on the top of your eyelid and below. Then, take your eyeliner and line the top and bottom of your eyes. You can now smudge your liner and shadow with your finger to make your eyes look smokey and mysterious.

Step 2:

Grab your dark red lip liner and red lipstick. Take the 2 and mix them on your hand. Your hand will become your pallet. Take your paint brush and paint some veins below your eyes. Note: I usually make the number "8" pattern to imitate vein trails.

Step 3:

Get a hair tie and place hair into a high pony tail. This hairstyle is optional. You can also tease your hair up and use hair spray to keep the style you desire.  Use the mud mask cream and start taking pieces of your hair and dreading strands of your hair. The mud will start to crack, making this mummy look old.

Step 4:

You can wrap yourself however you like. Just remember to flaunt your makeup. You don't need it wrapped too tight, just tight enough so your gauze doesn't fall off. Tie the ends in knots.

Step 5:

Use your mud and brown powder to dirty your gauze, after you wrap yourself. You can spray some water to activate the mud of you want it to look different. Optional: Take a new toothbrush and dab some black food coloring onto your teeth. You can also swish some food color in your mouth as well.
