My eleven year old daughter wants to be a vampire for Halloween.

Are you shocked. No? Surprised? Not so much?

Me either.

Anyway, I'm looking for suggestions on how to get her skin to sparkle like the twilight vampires do. (especially good products.)

  • Wait....old time vampire or twilight vampire?
    Obviously twilight.

    GAH. I hate twilight. Can we get a Eric Northman vampire? Or a Bill Compton vampire? Please?

  • "Shimmer" powder. You can get it just about anywhere.

  • I would get super super light foundation base cream and then they have glitter power you could brush on.

  • I would go with the brush on glitter on her face, and the spray on glitter "shimmer" stuff for body!

  • Definitely use the shimmer powder as suggested earlier. I wouldn't spray the glitter spray on her skin because it may cause irritation and make her miserable.

  • Look for a sparkly highlighting cream, and use it as a foundation.

  • I agree with the shimmer powder suggestion. If you can find one cheap enough (and big enough), I would use that on any exposed skin, and not just her face. I would start off with a really cheap, very pale foundation (unless she's naturally uber pale) and powder, apply it to any skin that's going to be exposed (and a little more, in case the fabric moves). Then use the shimmer powder over that. I would also use some eye shadow or something in a REALLY light gray/brown to do the hollow cheek bones and a little under the eyes, but not too much. Just enough to add a little definition. That's just me, though lol.

    And no, I'm not surprised. I was a vampire (the first time) when I was like 6 or 7. I was Elvira when I was 11 (it was my middle name before I changed it lol).

  • I have grown kids, so I'll leave the make up to the Mom w/kids, my hubby always did the make-up when they were scary anyway. But I'm not surprised she wants to be a vampire, that's what it's about being something fun and different. I hope she looks great and has a really good time.
