Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This was a look I created for a make-up class last year. It’s based on the character Elvira from “Blithe Spirit.” I was practicing finger wave, and thought this would be an awesome Halloween costume idea. You’ll need: *Cosmetic Sponges *Dark and light brown eyeshadow *White cream based make-up *Brown cream based make-up *White powder *Non-shimmer bronzer *White and Dark brown eye pencils *You skin color concealer *Green concealer

Hi my dear, I watch your tutorial and I love it!
Can you make a tutorial of Lillian Gish’s make up? I was lookin for it and don’t find anything, please, make one! ^^

TheTreeLobotomist says:

you look kind of like marion davies

vintagyst says:

wonderful tutorial!
but the whole time I thought with that pale look you resemble Felicity Huffman a bit 😉

FutureMrsRKO says:

question: do you think it would be ok to do with white and black/gray makeup instead of brown?? i’m gonna try not to make it too black and dark so i was gonna throw in some gray…any thoughts would be appreciated! thanks!

MadyRoseAnderson says:

you have the perfectly shaped facial features for this look, very classy and looks great on you!

I prepared for the role of Elvira, but I got the role of Ruth, so I actually still get to use the makeup!! Thanks for the help!! 😀

There are a lot of things you could use. If you go to your local beauty store like Sally’s or a costume store, they usually have colored hairspray that you can get in different colors. Also, different theatrical make-up companies have hair whiteners and grey…ers. haha It’s a liquid that you brush into your hair!

And the funny thing is, that make-up look as used for a class project I did and I was Elvira! weeeiiirrdd!

Theatremouse13 says:

Just a question: How could you make dark hair grey, to be consistent with the character “Elvira” from “Blithe Spirit”……?? Your makeup is fabulous, can you recommend how to make hair grey??

What is the use of the wet bar of soap applied to your brows???

MissSariElizabeth says:

This is excellent! And when I first clicked on the video, I was hoping you were going to play “Ghost of Stephen Foster”. 😀

Ashiechic7 says:

Drainyou888 says:

pin up zombie sounds perfekt! Looking forward to see it!

ThePinUpSweetShoppe says:

1950’s as in…? Pin up? House wife?

I’m working on a Pin Up Zombie look if that helps.

ThePinUpSweetShoppe says:

Yup! You can also use spirit gum. Soap was just one of the main ways I was taught to get rid of your eyebrows (and the only thing I had handy at the time). Plus, my skin’s allergic to some chemicals.

Devotchkas138 says:

Please please please do a 50s ghost pinup. I´m gonna be that at halloween and need some insperation!

chungweiteng says:

Jamboofreak says:

I got mine from a Theatrical make-up store called Main Stage. But costume stores usually have it..those don’t really work as well as stage make-up though.

I don’t know about Scotland, though. Jealous!
