From ethereal whites to deepest blacks, we're here to guide you through every step of this corpse paint makeup inspired transformation. The e.l.f. x Liquid Death Corpse Paint Vault is now sold out, but here’s how you can still get the look:

Step 1. Prep Your Canvas

It's essential to start with prepping your canvas. Start by giving your skin some love with the Holy Hydration! Face Cream which is hydrating yet lightweight. Then, smooth on some Liquid Poreless Putty Primer to create a flawless base that ensures your makeup stays put for long lasting wear. With this duo by your side, you'll be ready to rock your corpse paint makeup look with confidence.

Step 2. Face: Set the Stage

Now that your skin is prepped and primed, it's time to set the stage for drama. We recommend using a white cream eyeshadow that is blendable and offers long-lasting pigment without smudging or creasing, making it perfect to use as your complexion base for this look. Use the e.l.f. Putty Brush and apply in pressing and stamping motions to seamlessly blend the cream eyeshadow onto your skin, creating a pale canvas that serves as the perfect backdrop for your corpse masterpiece. Remember to build in thin layers to your desired level of coverage.

Step 3. Eyes: Where Darkness Meets Drama

The eyes are the windows to the soul. Apply a black lipstick around the eyes to create a hauntingly ring effect around the eyes. And for an extra touch of drama, use a black waterproof eyeliner pen, perfect for creating bold lines and intricate designs. Instead of defining, use this eyeliner to create jagged lines around the eyes, resembling flames.

Step 4. Lips: Make a Bold Statement

No corpse paint look is complete without a statement lip, and we're taking it to the next level with applying black lipstick all over the lips. This daring lipstick offers the same rich color and satin finish you love, with the added bonus of making a bold statement that demands attention. Then, use a black eyeliner pen to create jagged lines around the lips, mirroring flames. Get ready to turn heads with this daring addition to your makeup collection.

Step 5. Set Your Look

Once your corpse paint masterpiece is complete, it's time to lock in the look with a few mists of your favorite matte setting spray. This lightweight setting mist helps to control shine while extending your makeup for long lasting wear. Simply spritz over your finished look for a matte finish that lasts, giving you the confidence to slay your look. With these essential tips and tricks, you'll be ready to unleash the corpse paint-inspired look like a pro and hop on the trend. So go ahead, let your creativity run wild as you explore the world of corpse paint.
