In a bid to feature my face more on my blog I've decided to show you a few Halloween looks that I have created in the run up. Now I love my FX makeup but I kept it to a minimum as I know a lot of people aren't too keen on gory halloween. If you keep an eye out you might see a couple of mini tutorials on my Instagram!
I'll give you a bit of warning now because the last look is gory, or 'beautiful' as an automated comment said on Instagram. It's a special fx Two Face look which you might want to skip if you're not one for blood.
I got to create this look in partnership with Nickelodeon back in August for their new show The Other Kingdom. Now the flower crown is gorgeous and is perfect for festival looks but the ombré lips were my favourite bit, that and silver glitter through my eyebrows. It looked really good but I just couldn't get the perfect selfie as I didn't have my shiny new camera then!
If we just excuse the attempt at being fierce and focus on the makeup you'll see a look I'm really quite proud of which also didn't take a million years. The most time consuming bit was obviously the dots as there are so many but also the nose contour takes a while. As humans it probably won't surprise you that we have different bone structures to cats so I focused on the contouring to make my nose appear flatter and give the rest of my face definition. The first few steps look stupid on their own, if you want I'll put up a mini tutorial of it on IG. But I really enjoy the look.
TRIGGER WARNING: SFX MAKEUP NEXT
Now I love my gory makeup as it allows you to go crazy. Skin peeling off and exposed bone are a couple of my favourites. I'm trying a messed up Alice in Wonderland look soon which if the wax cooperates will look amazing. This look however is inspired by Two Face from Batman. The teeth are the most difficult bit and I wish I'd taken them just a little further up the lip so they looked more realistic but I don't think it turned out too bad.
I'd love some suggestions of what to create next! I wish I had the courage to YouTube but I'm still working on it. Don't forget my IG though as I'm trying to build up courage by doing mini tutorials on there first!
