halloween is almost here and eventhough i’m not quite sure if i will be going to any parties, it still excites me alot. my mom just got home with huge pumpkins to carve and i can not wait. alot of youtube gurus do really fancy tutorials with lots of face paint, fake blood and silicone and i do love watching them but i would not recreate them. i just don’t want to spend alot of money on face paint and fake blood that i only use once a yearand the really fancy make up is just nothing for a party. i bet its gets quite sweaty and i don’t want face paint all over my cloths. so i decided to create a simple halloween look with all the make up i still had in my collection and i hope you guys have that stuff too, so you can recreate it yourself. plus you don’t even need a fancy costume. just throw on a nice dress, a great pair of heels and you’re good to go.
so, i want to focus on the skeleton side of my face. the other side is just a regular make up. just do you normal face rountine on one half of your face and now, lets focus on the “dark side” of the face.
i just used a foundation thats a little light for me, which is a mircale, and applied two coats to make the skin look even lighter. you could totally use white face paint but i really wanted to create a look with stuff i already had at home. then, i took a black eyeliner pencil and drew a circle around my eye and colored in my nose. i also used it to line my lips and made that little chelsea smile with it. to fill in my eye area i used a black gel eyeliner which i applied with a flat eyeshadow brush and i also mixed a shimmery black and navy blue together to give my lid a bit more dimension. to draw the slits on the chelsea smile, i used a liquid eyeliner and i contoured my cheek with black, matte eyeshadow.
and thats it. super simple and you don’ have to spend alot of money on halloween make up. i would wear a black dress and really dramatic heels with it and just have alot of fun.
i hope you enjoyed my little look for a halloween on a budget. if you want to, i will do a more fancy look which i planned a few days ago but i thought showing you an easy look first, would be better. i love you guys.
