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:

halloween tutorial: phantom

This look was inspired by my recreation of Jaclyn Hill’s glam zombie tutorial last year. I wanted to do something disgusting and gory but also different than last year. I decided it would be fun to do a whole half of my face in gore kind of in a similar shape to phantom of the opera.

lorac performance foundation – SMS 1

cover fx custom cover drops – moonlight

maybelline age rewind concealer – neutralizer

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

step 2: foundation – I mixed the lorac foundation with the cover fx moonlight drops to create a luminous skin look. This is when i create the line where I was going to go from normal to bloody. I used a paddle foundation brush to draw a distinct line where I stopped putting on makeup.

step 3: conceal – I used maybelline age rewind concealer to cover my dark circles and highlight my chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose, and center of forehead.

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

z-palette-face

step 5: contour – I used d&g tan blush to create a grey toned contour on the hollows of my cheek. I only applied my cheek makeup on the left side of my face because of the fx makeup on the right side.

step 6: blush – I blended mac margin up my cheek for a bronzy glow.

step 7: highlight – I highlighted the tops of my cheekbone with becca X jaclyn hill champagne pop

step 8: shadow – I primed my eyes with the smashbox primer then used jeffree star china white to create an even base. I then blended JS courtney into my entire crease and slightly on my lid. I then applied ABH sienna on top to create a warmer crease. I took ABH fudge in the outer corner of my lid and the lower crease area. I used a small flat brush to apply MUG americano to the outer third of my lid for dimension. I still wanted my outer corner to be a little deeper so I put a little JS black diamond in a little section on the outermost edge of my shadow. I used MUG grandstand all over the inner 2/3 of my lid. I wanted more shimmer so I wet my brush with mac fix plus and packed mac tan pigment on top of grandstand for a metallic look. I smudged americano and black diamond under my lash line.

step 9: liner –  I didn’t put any liner on my lids but I used bobbi brown liner in my waterline for definition.

step 10: 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 11: brows – I fill in my brows with ABH dip brow in taupe and set it with ABH clear brow gel.

step 12: 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 13: liquid latex – To create a kind of scar like, open tissue texture, I paint liquid latex on the area and then stick pieces of pulled apart cotton on top. I then apply another later of liquid latex and use my fingers to pull the latex apart and move it in varying directions to create texture. If you use varying pieces of thin cotton you will already get a lot of texture.

step 14: coloring – For the beginning of the bloody look you need to lay down a base of color. I start by putting foundation over the liquid latex area so that it blend with the rest of my makeup and no white shows through. I then take a sponge and use MUF flash palette to create a red area. I mixed the red, brown and black creams to begin to darken the ‘scars’. (The only reason I have the flash palette is because of this series. It is super expensive and unless you do fx makeup is not worth it. I would just use lipsticks. Thats what I did for my look last year and it worked perfectly.) I then used a mixture of cool browns, burgundys, and reds from the morphe 35n palette to create a bruising effect. Once I got the look dark enough, I used a beauty sponge to pat on blood gel over the whole latex area until I looked just disgusting enough!

halloween tutorial: cheshire cat

Today’s look was inspired by the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Various cat looks are some of the most popular looks for Halloween and I decided to take a little more animated take on the traditional cat look.

products used:

nivea mens shave balm

milani conceal and perfect foundation – 02 natural

maybelline age rewind concealer – neutralizer

coty airspun loose powder – translucent

makeup geek eyeshadow – americano, corrupt

jeffree star beauty killer palette

nyc liquid eyeliner

wet n wild color icon blush – apri-cot in the middle

bobbi brown gel definer liner – black

mac gigiblack mascara

ardell lashes – 202

duo brush on lash glue

make up for ever flash palette

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

step 2: foundation – I used milani conceal and perfect to have a full coverage base.

step 3: concealer – I used maybelline age rewind concealer to cover my dark circles and highlight my chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose, and center of forehead.

step 4: powder – I packed coty airspun under my eyes to set my concealer and dusted the powder over the rest of my face so that it didn’t budge.

step 5: blush – I added wet n wild blush on the apples of my cheeks sweeping up towards the temples to create some dimension on my face.

step 6: eyeshadow – I used JS star power to create an outline of a winged out crease. I drew a line from my inner corner, slightly above my natural crease, and curved it towards the tail of my brow with a thin brush. I used the same brush to bring the end of that wing down below my lower lash liner and curved it downward before it touched my tear duct. I filled in the entire outlined area with star power but I wanted a little dimension so I added confession in the upper crease.

step 7: liner – I used my favorite NYC liquid liner to create a huge drawn out wing that followed the one I created with the shadow. This liner has a super thin brush so I was able to bring it in and create the downward facing inner corner of a cats eye. I used my bobbi brown liner to fill in my 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 202 lashes for this look because they have the winged out effect I wanted to amplify. 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: brows – I used the black shade from MUF flash palette to fill in my brows and I really feathered the lines above my natural eyebrow for a furry sort of effect. You could use any sort of gel liner or shadow for a black eyebrow.

step 11: mouth – To begin the mouth , I used the black from the MUF flash palette to make a sharp cupids bow and a curved smile line. I finished the outline by connecting the two ends of the smile. I filled in the entire mouth area with the black and then did a second outline slightly inside the black with the white from the palette. I then just drew in a series of triangles t0 create the teeth.

muf-flash

step 12: nose – I put a little bit of the black from the MUF palette on my nose and when I blended it in it turned slightly grey but I liked it so I left it that shade. I drew tiny lines with the black for the whiskers.

step 13: fur – I used a makeup sponge to blend JS star power on the edges of my face to create ‘fur-like’ appearance.

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.

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.

I depended the look by packing espresso all over my lid. I took black on a pencil brush and smudged it over my lash line instead of using liner. I then took a flat shader brush and applied black on my lower lash line and blended it out with sable and espresso.

halloween tutorial: zombie

I knew I had to do a zombie look for halloween but I wanted to do a little twist. I decided to do a glam zombie with big lashes, carved brows, and bright lips.

step 2: foundation – I wanted to look really pale so I used my lightest foundation josie maran vibrancy foundation.

step 4: coloring – I mixed together small amounts of the yellow, green, brown, and white from the MUF flash palette on a mixing palette. I used a beauty sponge to apply that shade around my forehead, all over my eyes, and near  my mouth. I just got creative with it and put it wherever I felt would look best. The greenish color wasn’t quite as dark as I wanted. I wanted to look even more sickly and taken over by something so I used some purples and browns from the morphe 35n to deepen up the areas where I had applied the cream.

halloween tutorial: tortured soul

I knew I wanted to do a look with a really disgusting bloodied mouth. I decided to add a really sad bruised eye. I wanted to convey suffering and pain so I decided to name it tortured soul.

products used:

nivea mens post shave balm

rimmel lasting finish 25 hr foundation – 100 ivory

sephora gel serum concealer – 01 bavarian cream

mac pro shaping powder – emphasize

coty airspun loose powder – translucent

anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade – taupe

anastasia beverly hill clear brow gel

anastasia beverly hills waterproof creme color – jet

mac gigiblack mascara – black

lena lashes – bianca

duo brush on lash glue

morphe eyeshadow palette – 35N

make up for ever flash palette

graftobian liquid latex

cinema secrets blood gel

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

step 2: foundation – I used rimmel foundation for a really pale even base.

step 3: concealer – I applied sephora concealer under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, on my eyelids, on my chin, and the center of my forehead.

step 4: powder – I used mac emphasize to set my under eye area and on my lids so my concealer wouldn’t crease. I then dusted coty airspun powder all over my face because I wanted a flat matte look.

z-palette-face

step 5: brows – I filled in my brows with abh taupe dipbrow and then went back in with colourpop dope taupe liner to fill in the front and any sparse areas left. I set the brows with abh clear brow gel.

step 6: liner – I wanted a really classic 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. I wanted all the focus on my lower lash line so I only applied liner to the top.

step 7: 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 8: 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 9: liquid latex – To create a kind of scar like, open tissue texture, I paint liquid latex on the area and then stick pieces of pulled apart cotton on top. I then apply another later of liquid latex and use my fingers to pull the latex apart and move it in varying directions to create texture. If you use varying pieces of thin cotton you will already get a lot of texture. I applied the liquid latex in a smile like shape across my whole lower face. If you plan on wearing this look out, make sure that once you put the liquid latex on you cut a slit with scissors where your mouth opens so you can talk or apply the liquid latex and cotton with your mouth slightly open so you don’t adhere it shut.

step 10: coloring – For the beginning of the bloody look you need to lay down a base of color. I start by putting foundation over the liquid latex area so that it blend with the rest of my makeup and no white shows through. I then take a sponge and use MUF flash palette to create a red area. I mixed the red, brown and black creams to begin to darken the ‘scars’. (The only reason I have the flash palette is because of this series. It is super expensive and unless you do fx makeup is not worth it. I would just use lipsticks. Thats what I did for my look last year and it worked perfectly.) I then used a mixture of cool browns, burgundys, and reds from the morphe 35n palette to create a bruising effect. Once I got the look dark enough, I used a beauty sponge to pat on blood gel over the whole latex area until I got the blood level I desired.

phantom-morphe-palette

step 11: lower lash line – I used the exact same colors from the morphe 35N to blend some red darkness under the eyes. I then took a really small precision brush to apply a little blood gel under my eyes. Be careful and be warned that it is super sticky so if you don’t want that then just go with the shading.
