There’s only one makeup tutorial on this site that can help you summon the demon king.
Over the past two years, that hasn’t been another WWE Superstar that has left you trying to catch your breath quite like Finn Balor has. From his demonic entrance to the coup de grace finale, Balor has worked his way up the ranks – wrestling all over the world, earning a spot on the NXT roster and eventually claiming the WWE Universal Championship.
While a shoulder injury at WWE Summerslam back in August has him sidelined for the next few months, it wasn’t for naught; he risked his own well-being in an winning effort over the established Seth Rollins and made his mark on the main roster in just a few short weeks. Now, it’s up to the WWE Universe to fantasy book just exactly how they’d like to see him return. Maybe in an attempt to reclaim the title in a renewed rivalry with the Prizefighter Kevin Owens?
Survivor Series is right around the corner, and there’s no better time to get into the spirit of sports entertainment. Wholesale Halloween Costumes wants to take you through a step-by-step tutorial of how you can recreate the look of the leader of the Balor Club, Finn Balor.
Watch the video to see how we did it or follow along with the step-by-step instructions below!
Find a reference photo to work from and start mapping out the bottom of the oversized mouth, tongue and veins on the chest with a thin brush and red paint.
The top of the mouth can then be mapped out on the face- down from the forehead and temple, around the cheek bones and then across the face below the nose.
Leave arches in the gums where the teeth will be painted.
Paint large teeth onto the cheek that end at the jaw bone.
Go back in to the vein lines and tidy them up with more red makeup. Taper the ends of the veins.
Using pink makeup fill in the area where the tongue will sit and add white highlights.
With darker pink and then red, add dimension and shading to the tongue.
Begin laying down the row of lower teeth letting them taper up to the neck.
Using pink makeup and a thin brush, add a highlight that runs along all of the veins.
Begin filling in the area around the teeth with black. Tidy up any rough edges of the teeth, veins and tongue with a steady hand.
Fill in the space around the teeth on the face as well.
Give each tooth a thin black outline at the gum line.
Also outline the lower teeth at the gum line and tip of the tongue.
Black out the remaining skin above the upper gum line all the way to the hairline.
Use a thin brush and black eye shadow to add a dark edge and shading around all of the veins to finish the look.
