Hey everyone, today I’m back with a quick halloween look!
It is coming up to that spooky time of the year for all my American readers, and I have put together a super easy skull look (an oldy but a goody)
My Photo inspiration
What I used
Good quality water based face paint (I got mine from Spotlight)
Synthetic face paint brushes
Generic eyeshadow palette
I am a little bit of a cheater though, because I only used a little bit of makeup and the rest was face paint.
I started out by wiping my face and applying some moisturiser and let it sink in, I then used the glue stick method to flatten my brows so they could be covered with the face paint. I used a large synthetic brush to start painting my face white.
Now you could stop there because that is seriously scary
Please also be so careful around your eyes when using this face paint I cannot stress this enough. I was just slapping it all on my face and near my eyes and then I had issues, my eyes started watering and it started breaking up the paint on my cheek so then I was getting more paint and was trying to pat it on top of where the paint was breaking up. I finally got it all to sit okay. I followed this by getting a large shader brush and patting white eyeshadow on the more problem areas to try and conceal.
Then very carefully using a thinner smaller synthetic face paint brush I took the black face paint and mapped out my eyes, and then painted that all black. I got this in my eye AGAIN (I seriously do not learn) and so I got a black tear streak down my face. I thought it was all over and was about to pack it in but I just kept painting my eye and let the streak dry. once it was I got another small clean brush and then packed on the white face paint over the black.
I then used the sponge that came with my paint kit to dab more white over the area to make sure it was all blended.
Again taking a very thin brush I started mapping out the teeth, nose and hollows of the cheek. once the teeth were all mapped out and the hollows filled in I then mixed amy paints together to make a light grey colour and started adding shadows where I thought I needed it. also marking out my temples and darkening my mouth.
Finish the outfit off with a black robe and some black fabric over your head and you too can literally look like death.
I had so much fun putting this look together, and plan to be more organised next year so I can do a few more!
