Today's post is one of those where I share with you, what I have done on others. My friend Sabina from Sabina's little happy place asked me if I would do some sort of Halloween makeup for her and her boyfriend. Of course I said yes. I don't get many opportunities of people letting me touch their face :). My cousin also asked me to make her some makeup for Halloween. Both looks are different, one is creepy and ugly Halloween makeup and other is more on a pretty side. I also made a last minute manicure for my cousin, which actually looked very cute.
If you want Halloween look that can not go wrong, try zombie. It's so fun, because you get to be messy and do everything opposite of when you're doing your makeup. Instead of covering dark circles, your drawing them one. And as some of YouTubers would say, when everything else fails, just use a lot of fake blood :). I have watched a few videos and decided to make some wounds and a very "rested" face for my two zombies.
The wounds were made with tissue paper and Mod Podge. Layering and layering, then cutting it and filling it with fake blood, lipsticks and eyeliner. I know it's not the most professional, but I think it still looked kinda cool.
Sabina was also made to look like she was dragged on one side.
My cousin wore this look to her work, so we went more subtle, prettier and convenient. She wanted a smoky eye and bats on eyes. The smoky eye went from black to redish brown to red in the crease. Then I drew some bats with an eyeliner. Paired it all with a red lip and blond wig. Me and my aunt agreed that she looked like a doll. For someone who never wears makeup, or very little, the red lip and heavy eye makeup, were a big change.
Before, we also did a little Halloween nail art. Do you remember those cartoons, where there's a little tunnel and all of the sudden you see a lot of eyes? Then a whole flock of bats flies out of the tunnel. That is what this nail art was supposed to be. It's seriously one of the easiest nail designs ever. I painted black polish on all the nails. Then I used dotting tool to put on two white dots. Then I used smaller dotting tool to add another two black dots inside the white dots and that's it. Easy and really cute.
What were you for Halloween?
