halloween tutorial: storm

For this look, I was inspired by my favorite quote “She’s not a girl, she’s a storm with skin.” This may be my favorite look. Im super proud of how this one turned out!

products used:

nivea mens shave balm

lorac performance foundation – SMS 1

make up for ever flash palette

anastasia beverly hills shadow – star cobalt

morphe eyeshadow palette – 35N

mac eyeshadow – nylon

ofra liquid lipstick – times square

chantecaille eyeliner – violet damask

mac gigiblack mascara – black

ardell lashes – 251

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 the lorac foundation to create an even base

step 3: stormy sky – I used a foundation spatula to remove portions of the blue, black, and white. I mixed the blue and black to create a really deep blue color for left side of my face. I added a little black on top of that with a disposable sponge in the top corner to create a dark purple looking cloud. As I moved across my face I used progressively more white until the right side of my face looked like grey clouds. In the purple cloud area I used the deep purples in the morphe 35N to set the cream and add extra dimension. I set the majority of the blue area with ABH star cobalt for a deep iridescent blue look. I used the grey shade and mac nylon to set the lightest area on the right of my face. I added violet damask liner in my water liner so that the whites of my eyes didn’t clash with the deep blue.

step 4: lightning – I used the white color in the MUF flash palette and a very thin paint brush to draw random jagged lines. I also added various pops of the gold and silver throughout the lightning lines. I found that this whole look was way easier with a detailing paint brush set to get really precise lines.

step 5: 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 6: false lashes – I used ardell 251 lashes  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 7: lipstick – I decided to do a silver lip so that it would pair nicely with the tones of the lightning. I used the ofra liquid lipstick because its the only silver I own.

here’s the completed look again:
