As the title says I would like to know how to perfectly black out a face making it look like a shadow.

Here's an example photo:

Another good technique is the "Threshold" method.

Select the subject. You can remove the background or not.

Then clip a threshold adjustment layer.

You can again change the background color by placing a solid color fill layer on the bottom.
