Who can forget that creepy but cool tribal Eyeball makeup Captain Jack wore as the king/sacrifice in waiting in Pirates of the Caribbean 2? This is a fun twist on the typical Jack Sparrow costume this year.

Grab an artsy friend to help you with the paint on your eyelid (unless you were born part owl and can keep one eye COMPLETELY open and the other closed).

Steps

1 Pat a concealer or eye shadow base all over the eyelid, inner corners, and in a light semi-circle underneath.

2 Start with real grease paint instead of regular eye makeup.

3 With your grease paint, mix blue and yellow to make as olive a green as you can. Start out with very small amounts and build, because you will not need much.

4 With that green, use your finger and draw a line all down the bridge of your nose, starting right at the top.

5 Between your eyebrows and above that green line, paint two narrow vertical lines in black.

6 From the top of the green line, draw a curved black line curving under each eye and winging up into almost a half-circle.

7 In even increments down the bridge of the nose, paint down-curved black lines about midway onto the cheek.

8 Where the line ends, mid-cheek, draw an oval-esque eyeball shape. There will be three on each side, plus one on each of your eyelids, but we’ll save those for last.

9 Clean your brush and fill in those ovals in white.

10 Clean that brush again, and fill in the iris of each eye in blue.

11 Leave a tiny circle of white in the upper right corner for a twinkle in each eye, just to be completely authentic.

12 The last step before you turn your buddy loose to repeat the eyeball steps is to once again clean your brush, and paint red crisscrosses all around the outside of the eyeballs, framing the face.

13 Go only as high as just beneath your real eyes.

14 And finally, entrust your pal to repeat those last few steps with the black ovals filled with white and irises in blue on your very own eyelids for a decidedly spooky finish.
