Ninja Makeup Ideas

Ninjas were an ancient order of Japanese spies that came about in the 12th century, around the same time as the samurai. Ninjas were employed by their feudal lords to spy on their enemies and plunder their food and weapon stores, as well as commit nighttime attacks. The ninja gained popularity in the United States through assorted movies and television series, including "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "3 Ninjas."

Dead Ninja

For a dead ninja look, mix white face make-up with a bit of grey face make-up to create the pale, ghostly look of the dead. Use spirit gum or other applicable adhesive to attach ninja stars on the forehead. Create bruises around the stars by mixing grey and purple make-up and painting it around the stars. Apply fake blood as desired on the face, such as around the eyes, under the nostrils and around the mouth. Use red lip pencil to fill in any edges around the fake blood.

Ninja Princess

Create a ninja princess look by applying theatrical false eyelashes (the longer and more intricate the better) with eyelash adhesive. Allow them to dry, and apply shimmery gold eyeshadow to the inner corners of the eye and red eyeshadow over the entire lid and part of the crease. Brush sparkly black eyeshadow over one-third of your lid and two-thirds of your crease, then paint liquid black eyeliner on the top lash lines and black pencil eyeliner on the bottom lash lines. Blend shimmery white shadow over the brow bone, and brush black mascara on the top and bottom lashes to complete the look.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are popular children's characters from cartoons and live action movies. Create a ninja turtle make-up look by painting green make-up over the entire face and any body parts that show. Keep hair away from the face and out of the green make-up by either pinning it up or using a flesh-coloured latex wig for a "turtle head" look. Paint a ninja turtle mask (orange, blue, purple or red depending on which ninja turtle you are going as) over the eyes, bridge of the nose and on the temples. The mask should look like a thin rectangular line over the eyes.

Basic Ninja Look

A basic ninja look can be created on anyone, male or female, at any age. Use sparing amounts of black mascara before rimming the eyes with thick kohl black eyeliner. Blend the eyeliner together at the corners of the eyes, and either create a small triangular shape or have the liner lines cross each other to make an "x" shape.
