Video: Pirate Face Painting Tips from ‘The Pirates League’ at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom
In need of a Halloween costume idea? Your friends at The Pirates League at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom can help — they’re offering an easy way to become a pirate. The process starts with makeup to create a black eye. Highlights around black makeup near the eye make it appear as though it’s puffy and an ordinary red eyeliner pencil make the eye look “sore.”
Next, creating a scar to go with the black eye is done with a sponge and a pencil. To draw the scar, start at the corner of the eye and move down in a wave. And to make the scar look more realistic, add white to the top of the scar line and add black to the bottom. Then, a few lines across the scar make it appear as if there are stitches. And finally, a few dabs of black makeup around the chin and cheeks create a pirate’s beard. Check out the video below to see it all come together.
