Supply List

Corpse Paint Tutorial Supply List

Applying Corpse Paint can be a long, but fun, process! It’s not supposed to be perfect.

Remember to have fun with it!

  • Good white face paint (Mehron’s white creamblend stick) OR Clown white face paint

  • Good black face/body paint (Mehron water based paint)

  • A spray bottle or tiny cup of water (you may need this to activate water based paints)

  • Black eyeshadow

  • Makeup Sponges

  • A good variety of makeup brushes

  • A few thin brushes, varying in thickness (super fine, fine, thin square, etc.

  • Flat shadow brush

  • Large, flat face makeup brush

  • Fluffy

  • etc.

  • Black liquid eyeliner (I recommend an older pen if you have a stash)

  • Black lipstick

  • Paper towels


  • Face primer

  • White setting powder (I use Mehron’s)

  • Powder puff (example)

  • Barrier Spray (something like this one or Urban Decay’s setting spray)

  • Crayon liner (for tightlining and waterlining)

❖ Most of these items you can purchase from a makeup FX supply site like Mehron. I personally use and recommend this brand, as the products are good quality, easy to use, and easily accessible on their site.

❖ I would recommend buying things directly from the retailer sites and NOT from Amazon! Products from Amazon can be expired, fake, or lower quality.

❖ Expect to make a mess! Everything is water based and very easily washable but still, don’t use anything you will be heartbroken over ruining

❖ You don’t HAVE to use black paints/makeup! Feel free to take artistic liberties and use different colors like red or pink!
