How can I apply costume makeup to look like wrinkles?

Costume Makeup Application - Liquid Latex Wrinkles

Puff out your cheeks as your apply latex with a sponge. Hold air in your cheeks until the latex is dry. Use a hair dryer to speed drying time. When the stretched skin is released as you deflate your cheeks, wrinkles will appear. Once the latex is dry, convincing thin-skin wrinkles being to appear. Create heavier wrinkles by building up the area with tissue or cotton balls. Allow the latex to dry again, then pull off excess cotton and reapply latex. Or apply tissue to the wet latex, then lay on another layer of latex, drying between layers. Once dry, apply foundation on top.
