Corpse paint or corpsepaint is a style of black-and-white makeup, used mainly by black metal bands during live concerts and photo shoots. The makeup is used to intensify the bands' imagery of evil, inhumanity, and corpse-like decay. It is most commonly worn just on the face, but in some rare occasions is also applied on arms and torso and in even rarer occasions, some musicians use other colors than just black and white.
