it looks perfect, really accurate! what did you use for your face? all the white makeup i've tried in the past never came out as even as yours did.

Wow, thanks for the kudos everyone! Glad you guys like it!

As for the makeup, I use professional theater makeup (I'm a hairstylist/makeup artist by trade) by Ben Nye. It's a smidgen more expensive, but totally worth it, it's a nice creme/grease mix and you can really do almost anything with their stuff. Also, when I put the white on, I mixed a little black with it to make it a little grayish. Besides being more movie-accurate, it makes the color more opaque and blends and covers better.

If you do get Ben Nye makeup, make sure you invest in some powder (to set the makeup) and cold cream (to remove it). It's meant to stay in place under hot theater lights and not melt off, so it takes some scrubbing!
