Galaxy Skull (Halloween Look)11:00
For some reason, I am feeling very inspired this week. No wonder, since there are so many Halloween looks and tutorials going around social media. This galaxy skull look was inspired by Desi Perkin's Melting Skull. I've seen a lot of skulls and they don't impress me anymore. But the melting part looked so cool that I knew, I want to try it. I didn't have liquid latex, so I just drew it on. Galaxy makeup was in my mind for a long time, so I also included it in this look. Hope you get some Halloween excitement from this look.
This look is half melting galaxy and half skull. I wanted galaxy to be upper part and to look like it's melting over skull. That's why I took lip liner and started drawing drops. I made a mistake taking pink pencil, because I though my look was going to be pink. It would be better to do this with nude or white pencil or even face paint. Then I took white face paint and colored in lower part. I had a very basic white face paint from drugstore and it doesn't perform like some professional face paints. Sometimes, you just got to work with what you have. I set it with translucent loose powder.
I took a black gel liner and started drawing on teeth for the skull part. I was looking at Crisspy's Halloween Skull Makeup, because her teeth looked really nice. I followed her tutorial and tried to shade them to make them appear as real as possible. They're not nearly as good as hers, but I was satisfied with them. From far, they don't look bad at all.
For the melting galaxy part I used lots of pinks, blues and purples. I used mostly shimmery eye shadows for that reflective look. It was probably my favorite part, because it's so easy. You just take a blending brush and blend shades on your face. I also incorporated a bit of silver here and there. For the eyes, I decided to make one blue and the other pink. How many times do you get a chance to wear different shades on different eyes? Go for it.
When I came to the melting part or the drops, I already shaded a bit. I made the edges a bit darker. Nose was sticking out and I painted it black, like in the skull. I also set it with black eye shadow.
Here comes the tricky part. You have to shade and add highlights to your drops to make them look 3D. I got this part from Desi's Ice Cream Girl Halloween Look. Feel free to correct me, I am not a painter, but I tried my best. I used medium taupe shade to shade curved lines and then I took white face paint to highlight on the opposite sides.
I added glitter to some parts of the galaxy half. Blue on top of blue eye shadows, pink on top of pink and even some white. I applied them in a milky way kind of shape. On top I also applied silver nail rhinestones. One in the shape of star and some dots to represent stars and add some sparkle.
I also applied corresponding glitter on each lid. I applied pink on the pink eye and light blue on the blue eye. For one brow, I used dark purple liner and on the other I used blue liner. They were both metallic for that additional outer space look. I also added some shimmery light shades around the lower lash line and some false eyelashes. Because the band of these was fairly thick, I also applied some liquid black liner to hide it, but I didn't do a wing.
I like how shimmery eye shadows made this look - sparkly and galaxy like. Glitter adds some sparkle and fun details. Glittery eyes make this look a bit more glam and fun. Glitter makes everything better. Skull on the lower part is unexpected and adds some edge to the look. I find teeth drawing very challenging, but it looks so good and like you've put a lot of effort into it. I'll definitely need to practice this more, but for a second try, it's not bad.
You can rock this look with any hair color. I wanted to try it with a white wig and it looked a bit more made up, which I liked. It hides most of the work that you did, so you might want to choose one with regular parting that still shows out your forehead. I also like this look with two top buns that have been so popular lately or even two boxer braids.
I'm not going to lie, this look took me a few hours to make. It's definitely not the quickest one, but it looks impressive. I showed it to my friends and family and they all said, that no one would know this is me. So, if you're planning on not looking like yourself, this one might be the one for you. If you're like me, you'll also love all that glitter that you never get to wear throughout the year.
