Hello muh’ lovelies! Halloween is coming soon and so here’s a simple tutorial. I decided to create a look with whatever make up I have. The only thing I purchased specially for this tutorial are the devil horns (which you can barely see in the photos) headband and fake blood. I don’t celebrate Halloween so purchasing loads of Halloween makeup just doesn’t seem like a great option for me. BTW, this is my first attempt in creating a simple Halloween look. Enjoy!
Organic Aid, Vitamin E Moisturizing Cream – Apply all over the face before any make up application. Moisturizing the face can help with better application as well as act as a barrier for those who use Halloween make up.
STEP 1: EYES
NYX HD Eyeshadow Base – Apply all over lid and eyebrow.
NYX JEP, “Black Bean” – Apply all over eye lid and smudge it out with any black eyeshadow of your choice.
Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette, “Red” – Apply the red color onto the lower lashline, inner tear duct. Gives the eye a more fatigue and bloodshot looking eyes
Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette, “Purple” – Apply purple onto the crease, inner tear duct for that bruised effect
Inglot Rainbow Eyeshadow, “Purple” – Apply purple onto the crease, inner tear duct for that bruised effect
Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette, “Blue” – Apply blue onto the eye lids
Fake Blood – Coagulated blood texture is the best! Place it under the eye like how your tears would drop whilst crying
P/S: Always read the instructions before the usage of any fake blood/ halloween cosmetics. I didn’t and therefore did not realize that the fake blood I bought is not suitable for usage around the eye and mouth area! My face had a slight red stain after cleansing off the fake blood. I also felt some sort of vapor that made my eye felt funny (like how when you chop onions) but I ignored it. Due to that, the fake blood placement was placed further from the eye just in case of any irritation. And so, after completing the look, I somehow felt the need to search for the instructions that I threw in the bin. My eyes opened in horror as I saw the words “Not safe for usage around the eye/ mouth area” and panicked for like 10 secs. Women and instincts. Lesson learnt. Always read the instructions for anything you use in life.
STEP 2: FACE
NYX JEP, “Milk” – Apply all over face and neck for a nice white base. Alternatively, you may use clown makeup to obtain a real opaque white base.
STEP 3: CHEEKS
Black Eyeshadow – Apply color at the hollows of the cheeks (like you would for a bronzer), temples, nose, lower lip and forehead.
Inglot Eyeshadow, “Grey” – To blend out all the harsh lines of the black shadow used earlier on. This is used to give the face aged looking skin.
STEP 4: LIPS
I didn’t have any dark/ black lipstick at all so I had to improvise and used an eye pencil instead.
NYX JEP, “Black Bean – Apply onto lips. Dab black eyeshadow to intensify the color.
Lime Crime, “Retrofuturist” – Apply onto the inner lips, just so the lips look bloody
STEP 5: OPTIONAL
Loved how my skin looks sort of decomposed and aged
Devil Horns – Place onto head
Fangs – For a more vampy look
Costume – Any that suits a demon/ devil/ vampire
See how super easy is that? Just a few products and voila, a quick and easy Halloween look. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any costume to go with the look so if you do have any, be sure to dress up for a more exaggerated/ real look. Happy Halloween and trick or treating! Do share any Halloween looks you have created. Till then, Toodles!
