Mad Hatter Make Up Video Tutorial

Mad Hatter Face Make Up

The make-up video tutorial here is courtesy of kandeejohnson. I have viewed the entire video and will highlight some of the instructions below. Kandee's video is a wonderful guide in how to create the Mad Hatter look as portrayed by Johnny Depp in the movie, however, it is also fine for you to do your own thing and create your own unique look. You can also watch the full video for detailed, step-by-step instructions.

Face: Kandee used the Make Up Forever white grease paint for her face. You can also use white eye primer, white facepaint or white clown make up.

Eyelids: Kandee used shades of powder blue and sky blue to highlight the eyelids. She used a combination of power, liner and cream shadow to achieve the desired look.

Under Eyes: Kandee used full fushia blush from MAC for under the eyes. Any rosey pink color would work. She then accented the area with MAC's vibrant grape shadow and Urban Decay's Last Call shade from the Ammo palette.

Eyelashes: Kandee curled her eyelashes with a Magical eyelash curler and then applied a lash primer. You could also use white mascara for this. She then used white eyeliner to bring out the desired look.

Lips: Kandee outlined her lips using a hot pink lip liner from MAC. She then filled her entire lips in using the lip liner and then added a top coat of dark pink blush.

Hair & Eyebrows

For eyebrows, you can do what Kandee did in the video above.

She purchased orange feathers from her local craft store and glued them on using Ardell eyelash glue. Do not use the glue on your eyebrows. Instead glue them directly below your eyebrows. Make the feathers curl up slightly. You could also create Mad Hatter eyebrows by using a Halloween crayon or orange facepaint.

For the hair, Kandee curled her hair and made it look as crazy as she could. She then applied orange hair spray. Another option would be to purchase an orange wig. If you decide to purchase the orange Mad Hatter wig, you could cut off a few small pieces from the underside and apply them as your eyebrows using eyelash adhesive.
