    Great tutorial – I could’ve used this a few years ago when I had white face makeup on for Halloween 🙂

      I could have used this back in high school when me and a couple friends were a bunch of mimes. My face paint that year cracked and flaked off all night >.< Haha

      The half face job in the video took no more than 10 minutes.
