halloween tutorial: medusa

Hello loves! This look was most definitely inspired by the fact that I am always joking that I am medusa because of my absolutely untamable hair. I decided to actually become her and heres how it turned out!

products used:

make up for ever step one primer – smoothing

make up for ever hd stick foundation – Y225

urban decay naked skin concealer – fair

coty airspun loose powder – translucent

morphe eyeshadow palette – 35N

lorac mega pro 2 palette

mac eyeshadow – humid

anastasia beverly hills eyeshadow – star cobalt

mac gigiblack mascara

anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade – taupe

bobbi brown gel definer liner – pitch black

ardell lashes – 203

duo brush on lash glue

maybelline color sensational vivids – shocking coral

headband

fake snakes

step 1: prime – I primed my skin for a smooth even base with MUF smoothing primer.

step 2: foundation – I used MUF stick foundation for a full coverage even face.

step 3: concealer –  I concealed my under eyes, eyelids, chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose, and center of forehead with UD naked concealer.

step 4: powder – I set my whole face with coty airspun powder to ensure it was matte and lasted all day.

step 5: contour – I mixed three shades from the morphe 35n, mac humid, abh star cobalt and lorac forest to create the shadowing around my cheeks, nose and hairline.

step 6: eyeshadow – I blended humid all over my lids and under my eyes. I packed forest all over my lids to make it darker and more green and took that underneath the lash line as well.

step 7: liner – I lined my waterline with bobbi brown pitch black liner.

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 ardell 203 lashes. 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: lips – I wanted my lips to looks as though I had just been bitten. I tapped maybelline shocking coral on the lips and blended it with my finger to lighten it.

step 11: snakes – I used an old thin elastic headband and superglued snakes to it to create a snake crown.

here’s the completed look again:
