Happy Halloween everyone!
The day is nearly over here in the United Kingdom, but there is still plenty of day left over the pond. I love Halloween but, personally do nothing. There are plenty of parties currently going on, up I prefer to sit down to a Most Haunted/ Ghost Adventures marathon! I also set out my plastic, light up pumpkin in the window to let trick-or-treaters know I'm home.
The steps to this look were very basic. I smothered my face in my Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, before using a powder on to (hoping to get my face as pale as possible without white face paint). I used Benefit Boi-ing #1 on my lips to conceal them slightly.
I used a black eyeliner to make faint marks where I would shade in. Using a large powder brush, I took a BareMinerals powder eyeliner in Stable and applied to my eyes, cheek hollows, as well as under my chin and down my neck.
I curled my eyelashes and swiped on some Bourjois Max Volume. I knew that it would be very distiguisable but I felt that it really made the look feel finished.
I used the same eyeliner to shape and fill in the tip of my nose. The mouth was created using the same products; I outlined the shape for the eyes before filling in with powder eyeliner. I then took a clean makeup removing wipe and ran that down the length
to created the appearance of bones.
The messy nature of the powder eyeliner meant that by the time I had finished, I had great big black smudges across my face. They were easily touched up by wiping with a clean wipe and using some for foundation.
I felt like it would be a cop out to just put on a red lipstick, so I thought I'd try my had at doing one similar to a skull jaw. The end result is...weird. I think next year I may have to work on my skeleton mouths. I tried it like a normal jaw on a skull, but that also looked weird.
Overall, I'm very happy with the look and I hope others enjoy it.
