Halloween has been one of my favourite holidays since I was a kid. I decided to create a skeleton look but with paint splattered all over my face and neck. The whole idea of splattering my face with paint sounded messy but let me tell you, it looks so cool and it was so much fun! I received so many compliments. This is the perfect combination of spooky and enchantingly beautiful.
The products that you’ll need to re-create this look:
White, Black and Purple (this colour is up to you) face paint from Snazaroo
BH Cosmetics 88 Color Shimmer Palette (Used Pink and Purple in the crease and used a yellow shimmer on my eyelids)
Kat Von D Ink Liner to Draw Lines and to add depth
Ardell Lashes in the style “Glamour” 138 Black
Urban Decay Cosmetics 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Black to fill in my eyes
Black and Grey Eyeshadow, I used the ones in the BH Cosmetics Palette
A medium Paintbrush to splatter the paint with at the end (you can purchase this at any dollar store)
Purple Glitter or any colour you prefer
Hair Wig (you can purchase this at any costume store)
Face paintbrush (I prefer a thin brush typically used for eyeliner application)
Step by Step Guide:
1- Apply a makeup primer to your face and neck, I like using the Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer
2- Apply white face paint to your face and lips using a sponge, let it dry for 5 minutes, you can use a translucent powder to set it
3- Start drawing any shapes or designs around your eyes. Map out where your skull eye sockets will go with the eye pencil by drawing circles that go above your brows and down around your under eye area. Fill your eyes in with a black eye pencil (I used the Urban Decay Eye Pencil). For a defined eye, add a black liner to your waterline.
4- Apply the eyeshadow colours you prefer
5 – Apply the black and grey eyeshadows to your forehead, under your cheeks to create that hollow effect
6- Draw the teeth using a Black Liner
7 – Apply the false lashes
8 – Make an upside down U-shape on the bridge of your nose with a black face paintbrush. Then, follow the bend on the outside of your nose and fill everything in.
9 – Take an eye shadow brush and apply the black paint to the inside of your lips to add some depth. Take a thin brush and draw a black line from the corner of your mouth out to elongate it on both sides. Then, draw a line through the center of the mouth to connect them.
10 – Draw the teeth by starting in the middle of your lips and working outwards
11 – Draw the bones on your neck using the black and white paint, this does not have to be perfect! Get creative!
12 – Finish the look by painting on some freestyle embellishments.
13 – Using a medium paintbrush, dip the brush in the colourful paint and splatter it close to your face and neck. Then, throw some glitter on your face to add a sweet effect
