Halloween is over. I'm slightly sad but also really enjoying the break my skin is getting from all the paints and liquid latex. I really tried to challenge myself more this year. This one up above is specifically inspired by Vicky Mon (@vickym0n on Instagram) she's amazing.
The next installment of my Snapchat Filter Series is the Galaxy Mask. This isn't one that everyone would choose I'm aware but to me it just looked cool. Granted unless you've seen the filter people might not know what you are. So keep that in mind.
Getting straight into it. I use Milk Makeup Holographic Stick as my base. Which is a duo chrome cream. This whole look is going to rely on duo chromes, gliter, and pressed pigment shadows. You could actually do a lot more glitter than what I did. I just don't like putting too much glitter all over my face because it can be quite scratchy and also hard to get all that off. So I kept it on and around the eye lid.
The shadows I'm using in this are actually called Galaxy shadows from JD Glow. Pretty much all the shadows I'm using are from JD Glow cosmetics.
So for the pink and lighter areas like down the center of face, the forehead, and the outer areas of the mask is Pink Opal. Pink Opal is on the lips mixed with some gloss. For the purple I'm using Haze and Anomaly. Anomaly is mainly on the lid and Haze is around the eye. Atomic Pink is the pink on the sides of the nose and on the lower lash line as well.
For the constellations and starts I used a white gel liner. When in all actuality I should've just used my Ben Nye Aqua paint. Which would've made all the constellations thinner and not as large as how mine turned out. Of course if you had a super opaque white liquid liner that would work wonderfully.
My brows are basically not that defined, I just lightly filled them in with a brush. For extra sparkle I used MBA Cosmetics pressed glitter in Amethyst Moon, which is just a purple pressed glitter. A loose glitter would look great and work well but also other shades of glitter would look really good and more like stars like MAC Reflects Pearl, Violet Voss Wendy, so on and so forth. If you wanted to be extra you could also use really small rhinestones as well, sporadically. I also used some NYX Vivid Bright liquid liners in a lavender and cobalt shade for more dimension and extra "stars".
This one is easy if you have the correct shades, you definitely need some sort of duo chrome for the base of the mask and then just shimmer shadows will work after that. So even if you just have a duo chrome pigment or eyeshadow, as long as it's over a cream base and a light shade, it should work just as good.
I definitely recommend using a gloss that either is 90's Clueless frosty or just a regular gloss and then mixing in a frost eye shadow.
So stay tuned for some more looks in the Snapchat Series!
The next part in my Snapchat series is The Lace Mask. This one is quite time consuming. The easiest way I can tell you to do this is to start with the outlines of the lace mask and making sure they're even on both sides. Then little by little drawing the outline and edges. I use a waterproof liquid liner for this so, Ardency Inn Punker Liner (you can use code LOVEMASCARA for $$ off your purchase) a felt tip liquid liner is the easiest to use in my opinion. Gel liner can be water proof but it's not easy to do small detailing with it.
I draw on a matte oil free face. So it's imperative to do your base, and then immediately go into your Lace Mask. The oil on the face even if you're dry will work against the waterproof liquid liner. So bake the face with loose powder is my solution, then once you're done set the face with a setting spray. Preferrably Blue or Green Marble setting spray, but Ben Nye Final Seal would be ok as well.
Back to the mask: work on the detailing and drawings in the mask, then work the netting in around it. Don't stress over it being identical. It won't be identical to the filter but it can look like a lace mask none the less. Don't bother drawing on the lids it will smear. Do a super smokey eye on the lid and intense lashes that way the netting just runs into it.
For the red lip I used Lovecat from Ardency Inn but a liquid lipstick would be lovely. KVD Santa Sangre would be a good one or any red liquid lip honestly.
Stick around for more Snapchat Filter makeup, as I have much more on the way.
So, I know that people have been re-creating Snapchat filters as makeup some. Nikki Tutorials has done some, I seen in Glamour where a whole fashion show used Snapchat Filters as their makeup inspiration. I thought it was so cool, and even though I'd done a few in the past I really wanted to step it up though for Halloween. Mainly because, these would be so cool for a group of friends to do for a party or maybe an at work theme for you and your co-workers to do for Halloween if you get to dress up. A lot of them are really easy to do. So I wanted to do this, then I asked my friends to let me make them into some filters as well, and then I tagged some of my makeup friends to try it too.
So I'm just gonna start with the actual ones I done for Halloween, not the ones I had done previously. My first one was the Blue Butterfly mask filter. I actually went a little extra though and bought some blue butterflies to stick on my face. Which made this super easy. Plus they were super inexpensive, I got them off ebay.
So for the blue mask. It was so easy and you didn't have to be really careful and detailed with it. I used Ben Nye cream paint in blue with a regular wedge sponge and applied it all over the face as the base. Then I set it with Neptune shadow from Makeup Geek.
The mask also has a super highlighted and shiny look. so I used a few different duo chromes. Starting with the Milk Makeup Holographic Stick which is a duo chrome it self. I went over it with Makeup Geek duo chromes in Sugar Rush that has a teal duo chrome, and then Black Light duo chrome that has a purple-y blue duo chrome. I mainly went around the edges and then down the nose with this.
Around the eyes is super smokey with black shadow. Not precise at all. Just very blown out. I actually already had a shadow on so mine doesn't look as black as I wanted but I did use Corrupt from Makeup Geek over top of it. Plus, I added lashes. I didn't even worry that much about brows. I kinda defined them some just so they wouldn't get lost but I didn't sculpt them.
Next up, I used Tarred black lip liner from OCC to darken the the outer parts of the lip. The only blue lip color I had was Bondi Beach from Ofra which is a bit brighter of a blue. So I needed a darker lip liner to make this work. However, if you have Echo from KVD that would be perfect.
I used Ardency Inn Punker Liner for the two little butterflies that I drew myself. Use my code "LOVEMASCARA" for $$ off your purchase if you want to. Then I just glued on the butterflies for the final 3d effect.
This was super easy. I love messy looks that don't require a lot of thought, or precision with them because it's very hard to mess those up. You could use blue paint from Walmart Halloween section even. I get my Ben Nye paints from Frends Beauty because they offer so much for SFX, not just Ben Nye. They have Mehron, Kryolan, Temptu, etc. So depending on how much you want to invest you could get a few colors, a color wheel or even entire palettes.

So stay tuned for more Snapchat Filter Makeup and if you re-create any then feel free to tag me because I'd love to see it! My Instagram is @lovemascara and my Snapchat is: loveandmascara follow me on there as well, I do a lot of tutorials and mini reviews.
I hope to see you try some of these and keep an eye out as I add to the series through out the month.
