halloween tutorial: glitter mask

This look just kind of came into my head. I have to do an art project and I thought of making a face of glitter on a canvas. Then when I began my halloween series, I thought why couldn’t I create that look on myself!

products used:

nivea mens shave balm

loreal pro glow foundation – 202

cle de peau concealer – ivory

urban decay naked skin concealer – fair

anastasia beverly hills contour powder – banana

mac pro sculpting powder – emphasize

anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade – taupe

bobbi brown eyeshadow – taupe

smashbox photo finish eye primer

makeup geek shadow – mirage

melt cosmetics eyeshadow – blurr, unseen, enigma, dark matter

mac gigiblack mascara – black

lena lashes – bianca

duo brush on lash glue

elmers glue

gold & red glitter

step 1: prime –  I applied nivea mens shave balm to smooth my skin and prolong my foundation wear

step 2: foundation – I applied cle de peau concealer underneath my foundation to conceal my blemishes and discoloration before I put a natural layer of loreal pro glow foundation

step 3: conceal – I used naked skin concealer to cover my dark circles, prime my eyelids and highlight the center of my face.

step 4: powder – I set my concealer with ABH banana powder and mac pro emphasize powder.

step 5: shadow – I applied smash box eye primer then packed mirage all over the lids as a light base. I then blended blurr messily in the whole crease area. I used a pointed blending brush to blend unseen in the lower crease and an even smaller bullet crease brush to smudge enigma in the outer corner and lower crease area. I lightly packed a little bit of dark matter into the very outermost corner of my lid. Once I went over the whole eye with  a brush again, I used dark matter and enigma to smoke out the lower lash line.

step 6: liner – I like to draw my wing with the nyc liner because its formula and  brush don’t tug and can give you a really sharp line. I then use ABH jet t0 finish my liner because it is so pigmented and matte. I also apply it inside my waterline then set it with dark matter shadow.

step 7: brows – I fill in my brows with ABH dip brow in taupe and set it with ABH clear brow gel.

step 8: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes

step 9: false lashes – I used lena lashes in bianca for this look. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 10: glitter – To create my glitter mask, I drew a line along my cheeks then applied elmers glue on the lower part of my face with a beauty sponge and while it was still wet, I used my fingers to press on the glitter. I suggest going section by section because you want to make sure the glue doesn’t dry before you get the glitter on top. I did this until my entire bottom section of my face was covered with gold and my lips were covered with red.

here’s the final look again:
