Halloween- Ghost – Make-Up Look

Hello guys,

I am back :), finally after months being away from this blog, I have time again to start writing some posts for you :). Halloween is coming up, isn’t that exciting? ūüėÄ I think its the best opportunity we get, to be creative with make-up and costumes. This year I should be a having a Halloween photo-shoot which I will post once published, for which I might be using this make-up look, not on myself but on other models. The look is basically a scary Ghost inspired from various movies, like the Ring, Mamma, the Grudge. It is a very easy look to do, all you need is a ton amount of patience and the right products.

1

Below you will find my instructions of how to create such a look:

1. The first thing you should do when creating this look is apply a primer. Chose an adequate for your skin type. If you have redness use a primer that will hide the redness so that it won’t show even after applying foundation.

2. Apply a very white foundation, it doesn’t¬†need to be a very pale white, just choose a two shade lighter foundation. I’ve seen make-up artists over do it with the white foundation and instead of looking artistic it ends up showing that it’s just a pasty make-up. ¬†You want to make it as real as possible, that it scares people out :D.

3. Then we can start on with the eyeshadow. For this look all you need are black and red colours (elf palette). I started off by using a black eyeshadow and marked the area around my eye, then followed with a¬†black matte gel liner (WetnWild) and topped it all over the shadow. It’s hard to created a very dark black circle using just eyeshadow, which is why you need a gel liner to get it as dark as possible. In order for the look to be more “natural” i blended the black outwards. Further on I applied and blended the red eyeshadow with the black shadow under my eyes, and finally created some crack lines with a liquid liner.

4. Finally I applied some black shadow to highlight my cheek bones, on my inner lips and even around my nose.

5. I also suggest backcombing your hair to create a scary hairstyle and wear a black or white dress, and be ready to scare some people for Halloween :D.

I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did doing it, if you try this look make sure to tag me so that I can see it. Show some love by sharing this post with your family and friends

Happy Halloween Everyone

Bumble Bee – Artistic Make-Up look

Hello dears,

It has been a while since I posted a make-up look, and it’s not because I didn’t create anything new, it is because I have become lazy with taking photos and editing hehe. But I finally managed to get some work done in order to show you what I have been up to. Before I start talking about this look I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter :).

About a month ago or so in Malta we had the Carnival, it is widely celebrated here in Malta and everyone loves dressing up and be someone or something which they cannot actually be in real life. Even-though I love dressing up, I didn’t manage to do it this year however I loved helping my nieces look awesome on these celebrations.

b2

A look I wanted to show you is what I did on my niece Samira, she wore this cute bumble bee costume and she wanted me to do her make-up. (All this yellow remind me that it’s Easter hehe) Well being that she is just a child, I wanted to create something fun and artistic. I used mainly yellow eyeshadow then black liner and shadow to create a fur like effect. ¬†This furr like effect I used it on her brows, on the crease and even on her cheeks. ¬†Finally I applied a tiny bit of blusher and some glossy lips gloss.

b1

Overall I am really please with this look, I think she looked great and the make-up went on really well with her costume. This could be a great idea for you to try if you have costume party or on your next Halloween.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and thank you for stopping by :). Show some love by liking my facebook page and following my blog trough e-mail, blog lovin or instagram

Morticia meets Corpse Bride – Halloween Make-up Look

Hey guys,

So I thought I’ll show you one last Halloween look I did on my sister. She originally was going for a Morticia Addams look but she really liked my artistic devil look, so she opted for something more artistic. I called this look Morticia meets Corpse Bride because being that my sister has some really big eyes, the way I defined them through make-up reminded me of the corpse bride.

I am not going to explain in detail how I did this look because it will take me a long time. But the images can really help you understand what colours I used and how I did it.

2

Face Base:

The most important thing for a look like this is to make the face look as pale looking as possible, I used some very light foundation and concealers and also tried to hide the eyebrows so that I can draw on them.

1

Eyes:

For the eyes I went for a dramatic red smokey eyes very similar to my devil look which you can view here. I used a lot of red on the lid and even under the eyes, it gives the impression that the person is either sick or dead. It is important to contour with some dark black color to give the eyes further depth.¬†On one side of the face I drew a spider web using eyeliner. Unfortunately the result didn’t come as great as I wanted it to be because they liner wasn’t great but it was¬†satisfactory.

3

 

Cheeks

For the cheeks I contoured the face with a very dark bronzer, the darker it is the lighter it makes the rest of the face look. I also used the mac breezy which is a reddish blusher.4

Lips 

For the lips I used a mixture of matte and shimmery red and then I lined the lips with black eye-shadow.

Well I hope you like this make-up look , it was quite fun for me to do. I love doing artistic make-up, I feel like a true artist :). If you love this look please comment down below and feel free to share,

XOXO

Cleopatra – Halloween Make-Up Look

Hello guys,

So I thought another look for you guys for this Halloween, this is way simpler than the previous one. This was created for those that aren’t used to experiment a lot with make-up, but still want to try something new for this Halloween. I chose to do the beautiful ancient ruler Cleopatra, and the look is inspired by the way she is portrayed in various movies. The most important aspect of this look is the eye-liner, if the eyeliner is done well your look is complete. I also used a wig because my bands have gotten longer, but if you have bangs, all you need is a few jewelry pieces on your head and you’ve transformed yourself into Cleopatra.

  • Then I used a gold colour and applied it all over the lid even some on the crease, following with a blue eye-shadow on the outer lid and a little bit on the crease.
  • Finally I did a double eye-liner, which is an eye liner both at the top and under of the eyes, and some mascara to finalize the look.

As you all know Halloween is round the corner, which is why I did this make-up look just for you guys. I wanted to do an artistic version of the pretty devil, which is a bit different from what we usually see on Halloween. It was really fun for me doing this look, I love using my artistic skills to transform myself into different characters.

Eyes
Instructions:

  • I used the same technique under the eyes, and onto the cheek bone and lined it all out with a black eyeliner and finally layers of mascara.
  • I do suggest fake eyelashes for this look it will make it even more dramatic, but if you don’t like having fake lashes, mascara should be more than enough
