Halloween Skull Makeup

Halloween Skull Makeup

Let me start off by saying that I am not a huge Halloween fan, never have been and I've definitely never created one of these looks before. But with all the Halloween spirit amongst the blogging community and after observing so many creative looks from some amazing bloggers, I thought I would set myself the challenge of creating a scary look. I didn't want to go out buying new products just for one look so I decided to look into my stash and see what I could use. Straight off the bat anything super colourful was out of the question as I don't own any vivid eyeshadow palettes, so it quickly became clear that creating a skull look with the simple black & white tones was the best option. 

Here's the few products used for this look:

Firstly I covered my entire face with the white liner & Duraline mix, using a flat foundation brush. I brought it down the neck slightly and left my eyes bare.

I then lightly used my kohl pencil to outline the areas I would need to fill in.

Next up I did just that covered those areas with the black eyeliner & Duraline mix. As you can see in the 3rd photo it looks very one dimensional with no depth to it.

So to finish off the look I added shading to where needed by working with my own bone structure. I wanted to add some sparkle to the entire look so I used Barry M dazzle dust all over the eye area (but this step is optional).

Last but not least I let my messy hair down & pulled some intense poses for you all to see the finished look in all its glory.

I actually surprised myself by how easy this whole look was in the end as I had it all created within less then an hour. I am actually quite proud of myself for the fact that it's my first ever Halloween look and it's fair to say my little one was completely terrified and would not go near me until the makeup came off. Speaking off taking off this waterproof look it wasn't easy that's for sure, but coconut oil worked wonders for breaking down the makeup first, as I then used Micellar water with a ton of cotton pads and finished it off with my regular cleanser to make sure every bit of makeup was off my face.
