Katie Rose’s Star Wars Party
Katie Rose used her Star Wars-themed celebration as an opportunity to bring characters from the franchise to life – up close. From Yoda to Kylo Ren and even Chewbacca, her mask making skills are seriously impressive. But it’s her take on Darth Vader that steals the show. Complete with a black helmet and respirator, this costume is no joke!
If you don’t want to go full Vader and don an elaborate mask and helmet, there is a simpler option. Take this example from Pinterest and focus your attention on the eyes and lips. With delicate white face paint, a defined brow and black felt top, the transformation is complete. The dark red lipstick gives the final touch of drama to the costume and will surely have you ruling the Halloween party.
With these three face painting ideas, you’ll be looking like a character from a galaxy far, far away come Halloween. Whether you go for the full costume, like Katie Rose’s attempt at Darth Vader, or keep it simple with the eye and lip trick, have fun creating your Halloween look this year.
