“I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest” – Jack Sparrow
Behind The Scene
Ahoy matey !
Welcome onboard ! If you are planning on turning into the drunk, tottery and dishonest (but impossible not to love) Captain Jack Sparrow, then you have come to the right place !
The picture down below is me, Sarah, and if you want to look just like that, say for a costume party or Halloween or a typical rainy Sunday afternoon, keep reading ! =)
Step By Step
Let’s take a look at the transformation process with the below pictorial !
Turning into Jack Sparrow is mostly contouring (shading and highlighting). Of course, your body language and how drunk you are will make the difference but let’s focus on the face transformation !
You want to think of your face as a blank, flat canvas and use contouring powders to give your features a different shape.
Let’s walk you through the above 9 steps, shall we? Arrgh, weigh anchor !!!
Step 1 : be your beautiful natural self =) Prep your skin with your usual moisturizer or steal your girlfriend’s
Step 2 : block out your eyebrows (unless your eyebrows and Johnny Depp’s are identical !). To block out my eyebrows I use a gluestick and compact powder
Step 3 : paint new eyebrows. Don’t forget Captain Jack Sparrow’s scar. Make sure your new eyebrows are the right color
Step 4 : contouring. In this picture I used a brown contouring powder and started working on the high cheekbones, the nose, the chin area and the lids
Step 5 : highlighting. I used a light cream concealer and highlighted the area above my lips, my cheeks, my nose bridge and my chin. I also used a dark brown eyeshadow to better define my new nose and I painted new nostrils with black eyeliner.
Step 6 : grab your khol and put it all over your lids and on your waterline. Do not worry about it looking messy! The messier the better, savvy =) Then set the khol with a black eyeshadow. Try and shape your lids with the black powder, so they look more like Johnny’s (unless of course you already look like Johnny, in which case you are very lucky, ’cause my oh my isn’t he pretty ?!!)
Step 7 : hide your mouth with liquid foundation and/or compact powder and shape your new lips. I used a couple nude liquid lipsticks to shape mine. Look at picture 6 and then at picture 7. See how dramatically different I look with my new lips???
Step 8 : with a brown and a black crayons, draw the moustache and the beard. You can also use eyeliners. I added a few white hairs at the end, for more realism. For the goatee I used a wig I found on amazon and simply cut two dreds and glued them on my chin. Don’t forget his little cross tattoo on the cheekbone !
Step 9 : Shiver me timbers ! I’m Captain Jack Sparrow ! (put on your hat and costume and don’t go anywhere without your bottle of rum!)
In case the above 9 steps weren’t enough and you want to actually watch the transformation process, here’s my youtube video ! =)
