Can you be a little more specific? Do you mean faces that are very shadowy/angular? Or faces that have skull markings, etc?

Righto Very Happy

I'd recommend a matte black eye shadow (dark brown if you think black would be too harsh looking). To create the shadows/angles, you need to contour your face. So, this means creating shadows underneath your cheekbones, temples and underneath the brow bones. Basically you're finding the bones of your face, and defining them. If none of this is making any sense, trying googling make-up tutorials for face contouring.

Also, if you're doing halloween style make-up, using a white foundation as a highlighter would add the extra creepy effect (there are also highlighting tutorials everywhere)

Hope that helped!

lol if you haven't already noticed, not everyone has played kingdom hearts, so reference images might be helpful Razz
since you'd be wanting to shade about a third to half your face (just thinking from memory here, haven't played the halloween town worlds in KH since 2007/2008) eyeshadow might not be the best or even easiest option (especially trying to apply it all evenly). i'd definitely try facepaints first.
