ITS TIME!!! Thursday is the first day of October!!! I was going to wait until October 1st to officially start doing halloween looks butttttttttt as you can see that didn't happen. I'm too excited and honestly it's a good outlet for me, I thoroughly enjoy creating and re-creating looks any time of year. So some of these are inspired by Pinterest and some are looks I just threw together.
So top left: Mermaid Barbie.
This is actually using a lot of duo-chrome and foiled shadows. I didn't do scales or anything cause I wanted her to be iridescent and majestic. I used colored hair spray. I sprayed the braid first with white spray and then went in with pink and blues. It was actually really easy just pile on the blues, greens and purples.....lots of highlight.
Top Right: Leopard/Cheetah Cat
This was a little more difficult. More detailing there are alot of different variations of this online to look at. Basically lots of contour colors, browns, and liner. White paint was laid down first on the face before anything else.
Bottom Left: Cute Kitty
This was actually on Pinterest. I loved it super simple and great if you want to be a cute little cat for a party. Red lips was a fun turn to it as well. Liner for detailing and whiskers. Fluffy lashes and a really heavy brown smoky eye.
Bottom Right: Beetle Juice inspired.
This was a look I found on pinterest although that one was far better. It's from an artist Alana Dawn on Instagram. It was an amazing feminine Beetle Juice look. Requires lots of white paint, purple shadows, neon green, a dark lip and liner for detailing.
Top left: Drawing/Sketch
This was something I seen on Pinterest. The had done Marilyn Monroe. I obviously don't look like Marilyn Monroe. This is lots of white paint and black shadow and gel liner. It's pretty easy. You just look at a picture and where the dark areas are like shadows, or whatever on the picture you just shade your face in that area as well. If that makes sense.
Top Right: Nutcracker
This was something really cool. I don't know why I wanted to do a Nutcracker look but I liked how it turned out. It's a lot of strategic and symmetric detailing. It has to be very neatly done so that makes it difficult somewhat, however if your comfy with that then it's easy and fast.
Bottom Left: Ice Queen
You always see a lot of Ice Queens or Frozen queens. Nicole Guerriro done one a while back that was beautiful. I wanted mine to be completely frozen. Everything about her just cold and statuesque. I added glitter to this one for extra and sparkle like ice statues. Pale blue shadow as contour or blush, which ever.
Bottom Right: Skull
You see a lot of skulls around this time. Skulls are hard in my opinion. It's a lot of detailing and time consuming. This was inspired by a male artist who does insane SFX makeup. I don't remember his name but it was amazing.
For gory looks I use Ben Nye Thick Blood and tissue paper for texture. I also add in some black paint or shadow before hand if I want it to look charred or burnt. Pink if I want it to look fresh and I also use liquid blood from Walmart if I want it to be runny. These are actually really easy to do but messy. So if you want to just be something scary and gory get some Thick Blood or Fresh Scab and you can have a look in no time.
I'll be coming up with some looks for you to do. Like deers, scare crow, so on so forth. I'm so excited. Get ready for Halloween overload.
