I’ve become a little obsessed with the Swedish rock band Ghost over the past few months. If you’re a fan, you’ll probably be aware how the world of Ghost can suck you in. It’s a visual experience, just as much as an audible one. I’m especially fond of Papa Emeritus III and was sad to see him go.

I wish I could say I’m going as Papa Emeritus for some sort of Halloween party but the truth is, it was for my own personal party.

You could call it a ‘tutorial’ I suppose, but I’d never done it before and it was a complete on the spot job, so I don’t know if anyone could possibly learn anything from me, but it was fun to make and hopefully it will be fun to watch.

Below the video, you’ll find a list of all the products I used. I decided to go for make-up brushes instead of sponges because it was more accurate and I ended up using some powders over the paints to give it more of a matte finish.

Products used for the Papa Emeritus makeup and application:
