Doing Starfest next week and I am wearing Screen Used Starship troopers MI gear on day, and weathered US Colonial Marine Gear another.

The thing is, the SST Stuff is covered in screen blood and dirt, and the USCM gear is covered in "threw it in the filed next door dirt" so I don't want to wear it and look like a perfectly cleaned and manicured nerd boy underneath.


To the point could I get some make up tips that are simple to do and will weather "me" a bit so I can get a bit more of the look?

Thanks much gang!

There's a product at Party City stores (or other costume stores, I assume) called "Zombie Dirt" which would be an easy fix. It comes in both black and brown. Easy to apply and remove.
Of course, regular grease paint makeup will work fine, just takes a little more skill to apply and have look right.

If doing dirt and grime, it's more important "how" you apply than "what" to appy.

Flicking make up on with a cut down chip brush and stipple sponges will give you are realistic affect.

You can thin down regular grease paint with ipa to flick, just be careful around eyes.
