This is something I did at like midnight because I was really bored and I also wanted to plan a trick on my sister. There are a couple different was of doing this, but I did this without the help of other tutorials. I really liked the way it turned out, and I could still talk a little if I didn't oven my mouth too much. I know it's kinda early for Halloween, but I guess I'm getting ahead start XD This isn't every complicated but I like to go into detail. HAHA it also looks so much better in real life. This actually last longer then you might think, i actually slept in mine all night and it didn't mess up. Also i didn't use any non-toxic markers, even though on the directions it says to. i'm just trying to seem safe lol
First you'll want to make sure your face is clean. Make sure all you makeup comes off if your wearing any.
Now your Going to decide where you want your "stitches" to go. Get a pen/marker preferably one that is black, easy to wash off, and NON-TOXIC. Now make 3-4 dots on the top lip, and 3-4 on the bottom lip. They don't have to even or perfect at all. Then on one side of your mouth make to dot close together not over your lips at all.
Now take your nontoxic makers and around/over the dots you made. First use yellow for the largest circle, then green for a slightly smaller circle, then blue, then purple. Use a Q-tip/small piece of toilet paper get a couple drops of water on the end and blend in your colorful circles a little. Lastly use a little red to make the skin look bloody and irritated.
As for your actual lips, don't really put anything on them. Take a Dark red lipstick and make a kissing shape with your lips and put the red lipstick on the inner parts of your lips. Then take the cover up and make the same kissing face but this dab the cover up over your lips. When you relax your lips it should look like your lips are really dry.
I didn't do any eye make up really, but feel free to mess around with it.
Cut the string/thread your going to use into five 1-inch pieces. Now put a drop (really just a very little amount)on the dots you made to mark where you wanted your stitches. It's alright if you can't really see the dots anymore because it doesn't have to be perfect.
Gluing down the string can actually be a little more trick then it may appear to be. Going vertically (up and down) put one end of the string you cut on a dot of glue (if your glue is drying feel free to apply more) slightly open your mouth and put the string on the other dot of glue. Don't put the other end on because then the string will bulge a lot when your mouth is closed. Repeat this process till all the strings are glued on. After you have the string glued on close your mouth all the way so that the string can dry all the way.
After the Glue is dried all the way put more glue on top of where the string is glued for extra support. Once all the is dry you can trim off the extra of you string on the ends so that it comes as close as possible to the stop where it's glued.
Use a stick cover up (the one that looks like skin colored lipstick) or liquid cover up. Make sure that it matches your skin tone. I used the stick kind. Get an other Q-tip and put a little cover up on it. Lightly dab the cover up on the ends of the string. Don't blend it. Even if you have a dark skin don't skip this. get brown eye shadow that is matte (does not shine) and up that on top of where you put the cover up. Now blend the in. Be every careful though not to pull off the strings.
Use the red marker again and lightly go over and around the ends of the strings and then blend in. Repeat steps 6-8 until you have it the way you like it. The point of the cover up is to make it look like it's actually going under the skin.
Congratulations!!!! you've now sewn your mouth shut! lol Have fun with this and remember don't open you mouth to wide.. Ha. I would like to see people who talk a lot do this. Sorry I don't have more pictures D:
