Back in college, I always had the hardest time starting an essay. Once it got going, I was fine, but every single time I sat at my desk trying to come up with some inspiring opening paragraph, the thought of jamming a pencil into my eye crossed my mind.
Needless to say, I never did it, but if it were around Halloween time, I might have gone through with it. At least, as a costume. Or maybe just through the cheeks, like Shannon (aka shaaanxo) came up with in her awesomely gory Bloody Pencil Face costume.
If you plan on wearing this for a long time, you may want to chose a more solid location other than your cheek. When you talk, drink, or eat the liquid latex and the pencils will move around and eventually fall out.
Also, if you want to go for a more grungy look you should probably skip all the initial makeup she puts on. And guys, if you have eyeliner on right now, you may have followed the instructions a little too closely...
When finished, you should have the ends of your pencil protruding from either cheek, your forehead or wherever you choose, with a bunch of fake blood pouring from the wounds.
Done and done. Be sure to share pics of your handiwork in the comments section, and check out some of our other Halloween makeup tutorials for more inspiration.
