IF YOU'VE ever wanted to recreate the infamous "Terminator" look, then this is the tutorial for you!
Thanks to Richelle McNae for sharing her photos with us!
Richelle used face paint and special FX makeup from our store (list below).
She followed the Terminator Genisys Make-Up Tutorial, instructed by Lisa Love, Head Make-Up Artist for The Terminator Genysis.
Watch the full video tutorial, at the end of this post.
Richelle began by outlining the design
Next she applied silver face paint with a brush
She also applied liquid latex around the outline,
with some rolled up cotton, for texture!
