Thanks to the blockbuster "Twilight" franchise and television shows such as "True Blood," a vampire-like pallor is more popular than ever. Whether you're trying to achieve the dramatic look for a costume party or Halloween bash, or you're a dedicated follower of Goth fashion, the look of pale skin is easily achieved with a little foundation and talcum powder.

Select a liquid foundation that is two or three shades lighter than your natural skin colour.

Apply the foundation with a sponge applicator, blending it evenly into the skin. Cover both the face and neck areas.

Mix a small amount of talcum powder with an equal amount of translucent powder, and dust the product over your foundation with a kabuki brush.

Allow the powder to set and brush off any excess particles with a tissue.
