Skeleton

This is one of the scariest yet easiest Halloween looks you can go in for, says Carol Dsouza. It will take you only 15 minutes to achieve, but you will need the help of a friend to paint your shoulders and back.

You need:

White and black face paints (available at Party Centre and Creative Minds)

Glitter for teeth

How do you go about it?

1. Apply white paint all over your face, leaving out the area around your eyes. Follow with horizontal strokes on chest and neck as shown in the picture

2. Complete with black paint all around your eyes, shoulders and back

3. Use black pencil kajal to draw out the teeth and cracks on the forehead

Zombie

This look requires a little more precision and patience. Spare about half an hour to complete the task.

You need:

Grey face paint

Liquid latex (can be made at home with petroleum jelly and all-purpose flour)

fake blood (available at Daiso Japan and Party Centre)

How do you go about it?

1. Apply face paint over the desired areas

2. Carefully place the latex (avoid areas where you have a tendency to sweat)

3. Paint over the latex to make it uniform

4. Apply fake blood as seen in the picture or as you prefer.

The same can be done using a white foundation, if you like.
