Halloween is tomorrow, so I wanted to put together my most favorite looks from this year. A few of them, my beautiful friends participated in. I'm not going to go in depth with this, just wanted to say good bye to Halloween with a look back at some of the past month (or more) work. Some being very detailed and time consuming others being easier that you think. Also wanted to tell you what products I used the most.
Left Row Top to Bottom
Sketch Drawing: This was mainly black gel liner and Ben Nye Aqua Cake in white. It was relatively easy if you used a reference picture.
Mermaid: My lovely friend Danielle participated in this one. It's a lot of "candy colors". Some in duo chromes and others just bright colors. Used a lot of Makeup Geek duo chromes, color hair spray, glued on pearls, and the Morphe 35S palette.
Pop Art Zombie: This was hard. It was time consuming and tedious. It's also the one I'm most proud of. Lots of Ben Nye cream paints, gel liner, and lip liner.
Center Row Top to Bottom
Female Mad Hatter: This was fun and quite easy. I used white cream paint to make myself a lot more pale but I didn't make it indredibly opaque I let a little of my skin color show through. Lots of orange shadow, and also orange liquid lipstick from Colour Pop on my lips and brows. Green Contacts and white mascara.
Angel or Fairy makeup: This was very easy and It seems like nothing but if I would've had an angel costume I would've been an angel for sure this Halloween. I literally sparkled all over. Using mainly Makeup Geek Duo Chrome Pigments and highlighters.
The Undead: This was freaky. I used Ben Nye Thick Blood and Vampire Blood from Walmart. White face paint and black shadows. It was pretty easy because it's a "messy" look so you don't have to be very careful.
Power Ranger: This I wish I could take credit for, my friends talked me into this look. One wanted me to do a power ranger, and one wanted me to do half the normal face and the other side the power ranger helmet to show how they have hidden identities. I used mainly Colour Pop Cosmetics lippie pencils for it. It takes a steady hand to draw out the lines. Other than that with a reference pic pulled up it was moderately easy.
Right Row Top to Bottom
Lisa Frank Puppy: This was very easy. I used mainly Colour Pop lip pencils for the spots. Ben Nye white face paint for the base. It was very very easy and different.
The Corpse Bride: This was accomplished with the help of my friend Jamie who was willing to sit through this. It took quite a while. Using Ben Nye cream paint in blue for the base. Gel Liner for brows and detailing. White face paint for the eyes. Black shadows for contouring to hollow out the cheek bones and collar bones and around the temples.
Cheshire Cat: This was just done last night. It wasn't time consuming but it wasn't very easy. I used Ben Nye purple cream paint, Colour Pop pencils and Makeup Geek purple shadows around the eyes and to contour. Gel Liner for the detailing, whiskers, and mouth. White Aqua Cake from Ben Nye to make the teeth. Cat contacts.
As far as what I found I used the most. I was surprised. The things that worked the best was Colour Pop lippie pencils and they come in tons of colors. I really like Snazaroo face paints too. I used a lot of Ben Nye products as well. They wanted to sheer out a lot though. The Thick Blood was amazing and cool to work with. You can't keep messing with it because it separates on the skin so I found you had to goop it on really thick and let it dry some. Also NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are always a great option as well. Milk and Black Bean are must haves but they have every color under the sun too and very affordable. Don't disregard your eye shadows either they are very useful over a base especially. They're great on their own or to set different colors.
So there you go. Happy Halloween! Have fun and BE SAFE!
