halloween tutorial: fortune teller

This may just be my favorite look so far. I am absolutely obsessed with the way it came out and it is super easy!!

products used:

make up for ever step 1 primer – smoothing

mac strobe cream

doll ten hydra foundation – light

mac pro longwear concealer – NW20

nars paloma blush duo

make up for ever flash palette

morphe eyeshadow palette – 35N, 35O

mac gigiblack mascara – black

anastasia beverly hills waterproof creme color – jet

ardell lashes – 251

duo brush on lash glue

ofra long last liquid lipstick – fifth ave

nyx liquid suede lipstick – stone fox

anastasia beverly hills liquid lipstick – craft

kylie cosmetics metal liquid lipstick – heir

michaels rhinestones

step 1: prime – I primed with MUF smoothing primer to ensure my foundation went on smooth and lasted all day. I then applied mac strobe cream all over my face to give myself a glow.

step 2: foundation – I used the doll 10 foundation for a full coverage hydrated base.

step 3: concealer – I wanted a really full coverage concealer so I used mac pro longwear and applied that all over my under eye and lid areas. Mac pro longwear acts as a really good eyeshadow primer and it covers any veins.

step 4: powder – I set my concealer with the light yellowish shade from the nars paloma duo

step 5: shading – I wanted to look slightly bruised and battered so I used the red, brown, and black from the MUF flash palette with a beauty sponge and tapped it around my face especially around my eyes which I wanted to look like they were healing from a black eye almost. I set those areas with the deep shades in the morphe 35N.

muf-flash

phantom-morphe-palette

step 6: shadow – I started by blending shades 1 and 2 all over the entire crease area. I then took 3 and 4 a little lower in the crease and curved it around to the lower lash. I deepened the outer v using shade 6. I packed shade 7 all over the lid and then 5 on the inner 1/2 of the lid. I smudged the shades from the 35n to really make the lower lash purple and bruised looking.

fortune-teller-morphe-350

step 7: liner – I didn’t apply liner to the lash line but with the deepness of the bruising around the eyes I didn’t like my waterline being bare so I applied abh jet in my upper and lower waterline.

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 251 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: rhinestones – For the black rhinestones on my forehead, I used cut up some scrapbooking stickers to create a design. If you go to michaels there are tons of sticker sets that would look great with this look. If you plan on wearing it all night I would apply some liquid latex or lash glue or elmers glue onto the forehead before you lay down the stickers so they don’t budge. I knew I wanted gold tears so I used brush and ofra fifth ave lipstick to create the tears and gold lines on my face. The gold rhinestones were also from michaels and I used a little lash glue on the back before placing them on the gold lines with tweezers.

step 11: lips – I wanted deep purple matte lips into a coppery ombre. I started by mixing abh craft and nyx stone fox on my mixing palette and applying it all over the lips with a lip brush. I then patted kylie’s metal heir lipstick in the center to add some metallic to the ombre I was trying to achieve.

halloween tutorial: bride of frankenstein

I decided to do a fun spin on the traditional bride of frankenstein look and make it super glam. This is the perfect look for anyone wanting to do something for halloween that is still sultry!

products used:

nivea mens post shave balm

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

melt dark matter shadow stack

makeup geek eyeshadow – mirage

mac gigiblack mascara – black

cinema secrets blood gel

nyx retractable lip liner – dark red

mac lipstick – diva

colourpop ultra matte lip – LAX

ardell lashes – 203

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.

muf-flash

phantom-morphe-palette

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.

step 5: powder – I set my concealer with abh banana powder and baked under my eyes with laura translucent powder. To bake you pack powder under the eyes and contour and leave it as you do the rest of your makeup so that the warmth of you skin really locks the product into place. Then you wipe off all the excess powder.

step 6: liner – I lined my eyes with a drawn out dramatic wing using abh jet. I brought the liner under my eyes and curved it near the inner corners to create a drag like eye.

step 7: shadow – I blended ash in my crease and then smudged my liner with black shadow  to really smoke it out.

step 8: brows – I filled in my brows using abh jet.

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: lips – I overlined my lips using mac cherry liner. I filled in the rest of my lips with nyx fire and then pressed a red glitter from michaels on top.
