halloween tutorial: bride of frankenstein

josie maran vibrancy foundation – dynamic

coty airspun loose powder – translucent

make up for ever flash palette

morphe eyeshadow palette – 35N

smashbox photo finish eye primer

urban decay eyeshadow – faint

duo brush on lash glue

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

step 2: foundation – I used josie maran vibrancy foundation for a really pale foundation base.

step 3: powder – I set the whole face with coty airspun powder because the MUF flash creams will take off your foundation if you don’t set it first.

step 4: coloring – I mixed the green and white shade from the MUF flash palette to create a really light green. I used a beauty sponge to pack this color all over my face. I then took a really dark brown almost black shadow to draw the stitches down my face so that I had a guideline for when I came back to it later. I also used the deep colors from the morphe 35N to create some light bruising around my forehead and the stitches with a beauty sponge.

step 5: prime – I primed my eyes with smashbox photofinish primer.

step 6: shadow – I wanted a really dramatic black cut crease eye. I used a flat liner brush to draw where I was going to cut the crease. I then used a small smudge brush to blend melt dark matter shadow upward. I then used a clean fluffy brush to go over the whole crease and make sure it was blended. I then used makeup geek mirage on only my lid to ensure that no black was falling onto the lid.

step 7: brows – I wanted really dark brown eyebrows, so I used faint from UD naked basics palette to fill in my brows.

step 8: liner – I wanted a really dramatic winged eye look so I used abh jet to line my eyes and create a wing. When I use this product for a winged liner a put a drop of baby oil in it to make it really creamy.

step 9: 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 10: 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 11: stitches – I used the black from the morhpe 35N to go back and draw the stitch lines again and then I used a small  angles brush to put blood gel on top of each little ‘stitch’

step 12: lips – I lined my lips with nyx dark red and filled it in with mac diva lipstick but that wasn’t quite dark enough for me so I applied colourpop LAX to make it more deep and brown toned.

here’s the completed look again:
