No matter what your age, dressing as a Terminator for Halloween will always get remarks like, "that's so cool!', "how did you do that?" and "are you a good Terminator or a bad Terminator?. Your first step is to create a cyborg look using makeup effects on your face. The easiest option is to use face painting makeup. Its easy to use, can be as basic or detailed as you want,  is quite durable and comes off with just soap and water. Also, unlike a Halloween mask, makeup will not obscure your vision.

Using face paint makeup, in just minutes, you can create a cool looking, two-dimensional special effect of metallic cyborg parts are showing through the skin. The cyborg effect shown below is a basic design that only uses three different colors of face paint makeup. When using face paint, we've found that Snazaroo brand is the best and we use it exclusively. Snazaroo actually makes a three color kit called "The Cyborg", that sells for only $4.99.

The following instructions illustrate a very simple version of a Cyborg. For a much more detailed version, simply use smaller brushes to paint on the black and red lines, and take your time.
Terminator Makeup 1 Terminator Makeup 2
Step 1 – Using a large flat brush and silver face-paint, paint the base of the mask on one side of the face.
Step 2 – With a #3 round brush and black face-paint, paint the around the eye and then paint the basic outlines.
Terminator Makeup 3 Terminator Makeup 4
Step 3 – Continue, adding the rivets, teeth and some mechanical looking lines for even more detail.
Step 4 – Finally, using a #3 round brush and burgundy face-pint, add the outline and additional accent lines.

SNAZAROO face paints comply with all cosmetic laws in the USA (FDA compliant), European Union, Canada and Mexico. They are the only brand that also has a "Child Toy Safety Rating" on the entire line. When applied properly the paints dry on the skin in thirty to forty seconds. The paint is flexible and will not chip, flake or peel and can be washed off at the end of the day with mild soap and water or baby wipes. SNAZAROO carries kits of all sizes from small three color kits that will paint fifteen full faces to professional kits that will paint over 3000 full faces. On their web site at www.snazaroo.us you can find over 7000 face painting photo ideas and many of them are step by step designs.
