Scary Bunny Makeup with Snazaroo: More Face Painting Practice

I have been trying out different face painting tutorials and trying to teach myself how to do different SFX makeups and effects.  I’ve been pretty much just picking a random idea or tutorial I like and giving it a whirl. Because Easter was coming up at the time I was doing this, I wanted to try something a little more relevant to the season and decided to makeup myself into a diabolical bloodthirsty Easter Bunny.  I perused a few psycho bunny makeup ideas and then just settled on a photo I liked on Pinterest to use for reference.

I started by blocking out my eyebrows with a glue stick.  I coated the hairs with glue, brushed them upwards, let dry, and powdered with baby powder.  I reglued and repowdered twice more to make sure they were as well hidden as a chocolate easter egg.  *eyeroll*

I mapped out my massive bunny teeth and mouth with a white eyeliner pencil and painted the rest of my face and chest with white Snazaroo face paint.  I gave it a few coats to get it as white and opaque as possible so I could be the whitest, fluffiest bunny I could be.

I then outlined my white gaping bunny mouth with a thin brush and black Snazaroo face paint.  When outlining my mouth I took the top lip up over the tip of my nose so when I outlined my bunny nose it actually start about halfway up my real nose to give my face a more scrunched up bunny rabbit look.  I outlined lower eyelids about half an inch under my real eyelids to make my eyes look bigger.

I shaded under my fake lower lids with grey and shaded in some grey brow lines to give myself a perma-mad expression.  I shaped out some very exaggerated eyebrows and then filled them in with chaotic black lines to get some really unruly looking brows.  I added a little bit of pink paint under my fake lower eyelids and painted tiny eyelashes under those lines. I painted on lashes to the top eyelids as well.

Next, I coloured my nose in with pink paint and added some nose wrinkles above my bunny nose with black paint.  I painted on straight lines from my tear ducts to the corners of my bunny nose to give my face a more bunny-like shape.  I added some grey shading down the sides of my nose with grey eyeshadow to add some depth.

With black Snazaroo paint and a very thin brush I filled in the spaces between my huge teeth and outlined the whole mouth in black.  I shaded the edges of the teeth lightly with NYX grey eyeshadow and went back in the with white to give the middle of each tooth more highlight.  I also added some rough lines coming out of the mouth to give the lips a bit of a torn and vicious appearance. As a final touch I added three little whisker dots to each side of my nose.

I played around with this look a bit after it was done, adding bunny ears and some messy, backcombed hair. Eventually this bunny went from creepy to deranged when my husband decided it would be a good idea to to splash blood all over me.  Luckily he was the only one blood stained by the process and my blonde hair washed back to blonde. He’s a little apprehensive about helping me anything fake blood related now.  This makeup was definitely one of the most fun I’ve done so far.

What I Learned

I was pretty happy with this makeup but as usual, I had a hard time with the mouth area.  If I had taken more time and paid more attention to shadows and highlights I think I could have made the teeth look more real.  I also really just guess my way through the lip line because I didn’t like how it was going and then just tried different things until I could like it it.  I definitely need to carefully plan how I’m going to approach teeth and huge, pulled back monster lips.
