I used some grease paint, put it on with a toothbrush. I spread it around where I wanted it, then smeared it, then rubbed off the excess with a napkin and a washcloth

Great job!I wish I could give you advice on stubble. I would go with browns and greys and perhaps a plum for the bags under your eyes. Remember to go easy and blend as you go. You look like you'll be able to get it just fine with a bit of trial and error. :)

I'm afraid I don't have any good suggestions for stubble. Every time I've tried it....well, it never worked. Sorry! Wish I could be more helpful!


Also, good luck! =^_^=

You can try the stipple effect around your eyes, and maybe bring out laugh lines. We can try that sometime in the future.

Try adding some dark circles under your eyes like your tired. Maybe trying for an effect of blood shot eyes. You need cracked lips to or dry lips.

Yeah Im working on the dark circles. I don't want to use black eye shadow, but I have some dark browns and some greys I'm gonna experiment with.
Yeah the dry lips thing could work...I'll have to look up how to do that.

I used some black grease paint and put it on with a toothbrush. I then whiped away the excess black and then covered it with foundation powder.
