“Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it!”
Hello my lovelies!
Halloween is almost here! Arguably one of my favorite times of the year! Admittedly, doing my makeup in the spirit of Halloween is not something I’m super comfortable with yet, but I am learning as I go every year. I’m not to the point of SFX, but I can get by with products I already own, and that’s more than I can say for the state of things three years ago.
In fairness, this isn’t my absolute best work. However, it is my easiest Halloween creation that I’ll be sharing. I’m the type of person that still wants to look cute for Halloween, so all of my looks that I share are going to be cute and wearable. Eventually, I do want to get into some more intense looks, but for now, we are going to start small.
Let’s get started:
- Apply a foundation 2-3 shades lighter than your skin, or a white base. I used the NYX foundation mixer in white for this step.
- Set the entire face with a translucent powder, as we will be using a lot of powder shadows to create this look, and we don’t want any dragging.
- With a light gray eyeshadow, begin to contour the cheeks. To create a more gaunt look, pull the shadow further toward your mouth, and downward.
- Contour the forehead to continue with the more gaunt appearance.
- If you want, contour the chin and jawline, however this may not be necessary for everyone.
- Contour the nose to create your desire effect. I purposefully made mine seem crooked, because I’m supposed to be dead and all.
- Apply a small amount of blush, keeping the “Glamorista” part in mind.
- Apply a single swipe of a darker red lipstick onto the lips. Blend the rest of the swipe out onto your lips, as well as out of the lipline. I really liked how this turned out, because it’s still kind of glamorous, but also looks irritated and infected.
- Looking in a mirror, tip your chin downward and locate the natural contours of your under eye circles.
- With the same gray eyeshadow used on the face, blend along the natural contour of your under eye in order to define it further.
- Place a very small amount of purple shadow onto the inner most part of the under eyes, as well as the space between the bridge of the nose and the tear duct. These are both places where we typically carry the most darkness.
- With a black eyeliner, line both the upper and lower waterlines. Leaves this stark and messy on purpose.
- Very lightly and messily coat the lashes with mascara. We want them to look chunky, almost like you’ve left it on for days.
