Step 1 – Pale base

Create a deathly pale base with a near-white foundation.


Step 2 – Set it

Use a translucent powder all over to lock down your base. 


Step 3 – Grey eyeshadow

With a matte grey eyeshadow, outline the edges of your eye sockets. 


Step 4 – Contour

Use the same grey shade to create a contour under your cheekbones and down your nose. Use a contour brush and try to follow the curve of the bones for a skull-like effect. 


Step 5 – Shimmery shadow

Apply a shimmery eyeshadow to the centre of your eyelids. This will make them pop against the hollow-looking eye sockets.

Step 6 – Blackout

Apply a black eyeshadow.

Step 7 – Hard brows

Define your brows with a black eyeshadow. At the head of your eyebrow, draw a vertical line to accentuate the brow bone.


Step 8 – Eyeliner

Apply a black gel eyeliner.
