I have been collecting Halloween makeup and what not for about 3 weeks or so. I had some from last year but this year I really stepped it up. Last year was my first time really experimenting with sfx or artistry, I wasn't sure how to go about it and so I just got a lot of Wal-Mart halloween makeup to just see how it went. I really loved it and it became a great outlet for me so this year I got some legit stage makeup and sfx things
So I got artist brushes to not ruin any my actual makeup brushes. These are inexpensive. I ordered them from Amazon but you can get some in the craft section at Wal-Mart, at Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Or any craft store I would assume.
I got several colored Hair Sprays from Wal-Mart again, you can also get them from Frends Beauty that are probably a little better quality.
I got a bunch of Ben Nye products: Cream colors in Blue, Violet, and White. Aqua Cake paints in White and Lime Green. Thick Blood. A primary color wheel. I love the Thick Blood for SFX wounds it's amazing. I like the Aqua Paints really well too. The cream colors I'm on the fence with they tend to smear on me and I lose my coverage. I'm going to use them for a Corpse Bride look this week though so that will be the real test. I got all the Ben Nye stuff from Frends Beauty.
Snazaroo face paint in black. This I apply with a wet sponge. I really like it. It's huge and it's not very expensive. I got mine from Amazon and I think I'll get the other primary colors in it.
Vampire Blood and black cream paint from Wal-Mart. I use the Vampire Blood because it's thinner so to have a dripping look or to have smeared blood look. The black paint is helpful with sfx as for "charred" looks. It not good for actual face paint though. Way too patchy and sheer.
This look is using the hair sprays. I used white first on my dark hair and just hit it with the colors over top. I didn't want it to entirely cover up my dark hair but I wanted the colors to stand out I used White, Blue, and Pink.
This look is a broken doll. I used Ben Nye cream paint in White and Aqua Cake in white over top to make it more opaque. Snazaroo black paint for the broken part. Liner for cracks and detailing. The blue eye is just an app because I didn't want to get actual contacts. I'm afraid of unknown contact brands, contacts in general make my eyes burn and water.
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to do these things because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity.
