This Halloween tutorial by YouTube makeup artist Promise Phan creates the terrifying effect of a set of stitches sewing the wearer's mouth shut.
Halloween tutorials show watchers how to create all kinds of Halloween makeup effects for their annual disguises. Although there are beautifying options available, like mermaid scale effects and perfect princess makeup, the most popular looks are the truly scary ones. These include zombie makeup, vampire blood and all kinds of horrific injury effects like peeled back skin or giant lacerations.
The stitched mouth makeup in this Halloween tutorial is sure to make trick-or-treaters scream, although its wearer won't be able to. Using black thread, cosmetic glue and some black and red eyeliner, the tutorial gives the illusion of giant stitches over the mouth. It's doubly bone-chilling for its gory appearance and psychologically scary suggestion.
