Whether you are dressing as a traditional vampire or a “Twilight” vampire, your Twilight costume will need to include makeup. In both cases, you will want a pale white. In the case of a Twilight vampire, you will also need to have sparkles that pick up sunlight.
For the general pale vampire makeup, you have many choices. You don’t want to be white like a clown but rather pale. A good choice is Face Painting Makeup disguise Stix at BuyCostumes.com in Ivory Cream. Each stick will allow you to do your face several times.
A kit that would work really well, also from BuyCostumes.com, is the Ghost Stories Makeup Kit. It includes not only the white that you need for your skin but also dark colors to make the “bruised-like” areas under the eyes. And it sells for less than $5! (just use it VERY sparingly because you don’t actually want to look like a ghost).
Of course, if you are going for the “after the hunt” Bella, you will want to pick up some fake blood as well!
Here are some suggestions for glitter that is easy to apply all over your body and is less than $10:
Roll-On Body Glitter (12 count)
Includes 12 assorted body glitter rolls. Each holds up to 0.3 fl oz.
Professional Glitter Gel (Opalescent)
Includes one (1) 1 oz. container of professional-quality Glitter Gel.
Remember also that adding a deep, red lipstick or lip stain will help create a contrast that will make the skin look paler. Some DuWop Twilight Venom would be perfect.
So the basics of Twilight makeup–pale skin, sparkles or shimmer, maybe a little bruising under the eyes, and red lips. Combine it with some of our other Twilight Costume ideas such as gold Twilight contacts and you will be the best-looking vampire at the party!
