I LOVE Halloween! I love getting dressed up and being creative. Love being able to put on some spooky slap, whether it's face paint or some dramatic dark make up, I love it all.
I decided to do some scary Halloween make up using make up that I use everyday instead of using face paint that people would have to go out and buy in order to create this look. So here are some tips to create my 'monster/skeleton/I don't really know what it is' look using make up you already own!
I started by using my Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstorm. I normally use this as a cover over my foundation to take the shine out of my face. This time I put it straight onto my face without a base. I then covered with a Next white eyeshadow to lighten my face further (you could use any white eyeshadow). After this I used my no. 7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow in Thunder but any grey eyeshadow would do. I blended this under my cheeks to give the illusion of a gaunt face, I then blended it on the sides of my nose and down the lines of my upper lip, this was to create the illusion of deep wrinkled features.
I then used my Avon Supershock eyeliner in black to draw on my nose and large circles around my eyes using the top of my eyebrows as a guide.
Once this was done I used my e.l.f studio pigment eyeshadow in Naughty Noire (it's basically a black) to cover over the eyeliner to fill in any gaps and make it look darker.
I then used my e.l.f. complete coverage concealer in light to colour over my lips and then covered it with my Rimmel pressed powder. I then used my Rimmer Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner in Black to draw a line going through my lips and across the whole of my face, I then drew little lines through them to give the illusion of stitching. I also used this to draw wrinkles on my face and a scar on my forehead and also some eyebrow/forehead lines. I then used my black and grey eyeshadows to blend the lines in and shade them.
