Either a good prosthetic adhesive such as Telesis or spirit gum will stick these ears on very well. You will need the Telesis thinner to remove the glue. If you use Spirit gum you will need the remover that comes with it. You can get any of these items listed here from any theatrical makeup supply house on the net or locally. Friends Beauty supply carries all these items and you can locate them on line.http://frendsbeautysupply.com/
Just about any makeup base seems to work on these prosthetics. Krylon makes some excellent palettes for prosthetics. Or you can use the Skin illustrator make up as seen in these photos. I have also found that oil based women’s makeup bases work well too.
You will also need some makeup sponges, a good brush or two to apply the glue and any makeup you might want to apply for highlight and shading.
4. Translucent powder will be needed to de-tack the glue once applied. Even baby powder will work.
5. Duo Eye Lash Adhesive for blending and sealing.
To apply the ears move and pin back the hair around the ear as much as possible. Clean the ear with rubbing alcohol or non oil based skin cleaner.
Start by applying a bit of glue to the ear tip and slide the ear into position. Before adding any further glue, make sure you are happy with the position. If you’re not, go up under the ear with a brush and thinner to loosen the ear and move it or slide it around.
Once you have the ear correctly positioned then start going under the ear with glue starting on the back side and apply glue from actual ear tip inside down to the blender edge. Be careful not to roll the thin edges under. If you do you can loosen back with a bit of thinner.
Now you are ready using a makeup sponge apply and flesh colored base to the ears and blend them in with the same color as your skin or the makeup base you are using for you face as well to match. Powder it all down and dust off the residue powder.
To remove the ears, carefully, using the glue thinner and a brush, slowly work the ear off the same way you put it on. Once you have it off you can use the thinner to remove as much glue as possible. You can also roll the edges back out. Once you have done this powder them and put them back in a plastic bag for another use. If you are careful, you’ll be able to do this several times. If the edges start getting a little thick you can blend them with more Duo over the edge.
To clean your ears use the thinner and a makeup sponge to remove the excess glue followed by soap and hot water.
