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.
