I thought I'd try a completely new Halloween look, instead of just trying to better my one's from last year. I had seen photos of girls painting lace masks on to their faces and it really intrigued the artsy side of me. I thought I'd at least give it a try!
I did my basic base just like everyday, nothing special: prime, foundation, blush, powder. I didn't want anything too heavy on the eyes if the main focus was going to be on the mask, so I just used a bit of liquid eyeliner and mascara.
The mask took forever! I'm not going to lie to you, but only do this if you have a lot of time to spare. My mask is not the most detailed, but took me roughly two and a half hours in total. I first had to outline the shape with a kohl eyeliner. I used a light hand to make the basic structure of the mask, before adding in large details that I needed to be a guide. That took me about forty-five minutes. After that I had to start the actual painting. Going over every line with black facepaint and a thin eyeliner brush. I then had to thicken the lines up to where I wanted them. Doing the really fine lines was impossible with the eyeliner brush, so I had to switch over to a liquid liner.
I was really happy with how it turned out, but I would not be doing it again unless I had absolutely nothing else to do!
What's your favourite Halloween look of choice?
