How to Do Bold Black and White Makeup

Mime Makeup
If you're one to play with makeup until you've found a brand new look that really makes a statement (think "So what I'm a rock star"), black and white Mime makeup is for you this Halloween. Sure, you can add strategic splashes of color, like red lips or a touch of blue eyeliner, bur for the most part your canvas will be black and white and envied all over. Remember, black and white are the purest elements of form. Spice up this makeup look with visually arresting graphic details to stand out from the pack.

Extreme Black and White Makeup

Take your inspiration from Truman Capote whose legendary Black and White Ball in 1966 made duo-tone extremes totally glam. For a standout high fashion Mime makeup look, create high contrast by packing an intense matte white shadow on your lids, lining your lashes with ultra noir liner and finishing with copious (not clumpy) amounts of black mascara. Conversely, you can opt for black eyelids and stark white lips for a look that channels the mod period. Add some graphic details to make this Mime makeup look even more interesting: try black polka dots or x's and o's (i.e. hugs and kisses) on top of white lids when you're feeling playful (create either with an ultra-thin eyeliner brush dipped in wet black shadow). --Stephanie Simons

Try using a white liner instead of a black one...they usually carry white liners a drug stores if you're looking for a cheap find. This comment has been removed.

The heart-shape lips is an ingenious idea! I kinda want to try that in white...what kind of product should I use? I know with the black, you can use a liner...but what should I use if I'm trying to draw in a white heart? This comment has been removed.
