To complete your Halloween costume without actually hurting yourself.
Lubricate your face with the Vaseline so the Papier-mâché is easier to get off.
Rip the newspaper into shreds and apply in layers with the glue to the lubricated part of your face.
When you are satisfied add a layer of slightly scrunched up tissue paper to the surface and leave on your face to dry.
When it is nearly dry you can take it off your face and leave it to dry completely ( you might want to wash the Vaseline off of your face as well).
When it is completely dry you can apply a base coat of red poster paint. While this is still wet, paint over it with a little black paint for a chard effect.
When that is dry lightly dab red paint onto the ridges of the Papier-mâché.
Dab patches of PVA glue over it so it looks like it is weeping (eeww, hehe).
To apply it to your face put eye lash glue on the back and apply it where you want.
