Ever since Johnny Depp became the de facto face of pirates, the look has changed. The 21st-century swashbuckler is still a scoundrel, but his black patch has been replaced with a smokey eye look. Still, no pirate costume is complete without a bandana and a tricorn hat. And if you're heading out to trick-or-treat this Halloween, don't forget your captain's compass to avoid getting lost in unchartered territory!
Trick: Rub a dab of petroleum jelly and a dab of red makeup paint (or eyeshadow) over the eyeshadow on the top lid. This gives an added effect of grime and bloodshot eyes.

To bring you these face-painting tips, professional make-up artist Elizabeth Villamarin shared her bag of tricks with writer Grace Ganssle.
