Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas Directions
Secure hair back and use a sponge or brush to fill in the face, neck and chest area with a pale blue face paint. Grace, our makeup artist, used Moonlight White face paint (it’s a pale, pale blue). When you brush on the face paint, avoid the eye socket area up to the eyebrow.
With a brush, make your eye outline in black face paint, and fill in with white face paint.
Next, using an artist’s brush, take a medium blue and color around the lined eye area slightly outside the black line, all the way around. Add a bit to the tip of the nose, too. Next, make your eyelashes.
Use a black eye pencil to outline the mouth. With a brush, make your stitching seams along the side of the forehead and upper cheek, across lips, and the chest area. Put a black dot on each eyelid.
Next, fill in the lips with a ruby red. Add a red wig!

Now that you know how to paint your face like Sally from Disney’s Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas, you can dress up as her for Halloween.

Furthermore, find someone to dress up as Jack Skellington, and you’ll make a hauntingly good-looking couple.
