So since I did a Chucky look in my previous post, I thought it was appropriate to do his bride! So this was my “Bride of Chucky” look, this look is actually really simple and easy to do, and you don’t need a lot of products. See what I used and the steps below!

What you’ll need:

– A glue stick (to glue your eyebrows down and make them disappear, don’t worry this won’t rip any eyebrow hairs and it comes off easily when you wash your face)

– A concealer or foundation, and powder to hide your eyebrows

– A good black eyeliner pencil

– A black or any dark lipstick

– A foundation that is lighter than you are if you aren’t already naturally fair

– A matte black eyeshadow (a burgundy or red eyeshadow I recommend to use on the crease but it’s not necessary)

– False eyelashes

– Contour powder

– Colored contacts (some pictures she has green eyes and some pictures i’ve seen she has a white/grayish looking eyes, I originally used white out contacts for this look but ended up altering it using photoshop for those bright green eyes as I did not have green contacts).

What I used:

– Gluestick

– MAC Studio Fix Concealer NC30,

– Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation in Light Porcelain (since she is really fair and I am not), extend this foundation to your neck so that it matches.

– Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer (used this on my cheeks)

– Anastasia Contour Palette for contouring the nose, etc.

– Inglot Gel Eyeliner #55 as a base for the black eyeshadow

– Lorac Mega Palette eyeshadows in black (used this heavily on the lid and on the lower part of my eyes, it doesn’t have to be perfect, just smudged out and smoky looking), then used a mix of Mulberry and Merlot on the crease to give it depth and to make it pop

– Used Adoro Lashes #47

– Urban Decay Perversion Eye Liner to line the lips and to extend the lips to give the illusion of a wider smile like she has, also used the liner to draw the eyebrows and the beauty mark/mole above her lips.

– Used MAC Living Legend lipstick on lips. You can use black lipstick but I wanted to have dark lips with a bit of color.

Halloween Makeup: Chucky Doll! (Tutorial)

PhotoGrid_1413962118687I remember watching ‘Chucky’ as a kid and being terrified of dolls, LOL.”Hi. I’m Chucky, wanna play?”

Below is a breakdown of the makeup/products I used for this look, as well as a little mini tutorial to go with the above pictures:

Products:

– NYX Cosmetics Lip Liner in Plush Red

– Snazaroo Face Paint in Red

– Milani Cosmetics Brow Highligher Pencil

– Belletto Studios Hide and Go Chic Concealer & Highlighter Quad

– MAC Paint Stick in Black

– MAC Carbon Eyeshadow

– Ben Nye Bruise Wheel

Steps:

***TAKE YOUR TIME WITH EACH STEP!*** Honestly, if you rush it, it’s going to look sloppy and messy. It’s best to truly take your time, especially when you are dealing with the color black, once it smears, it can ruin everything you just did and you’ll find yourself starting over, so take your time!

1. Used NYX Cosmetics Lip Liner in Plush Red to outline the bloody part of the eye as well as the scar lines on the face.

2. Filled in the “bloody” ripped part of the eye with Snazaroo Face Paint in Red (it’s a water-activated face paint you can find at many craft stores, I got mine from Michael’s for under $10)

3. Using a matte black or dark gray eyeshadow, shade in the inner edges of the “ripped eye” to give it more depth and to give the realistic look of blood so it’s not so bright of a red, blend the black or dark gray eyeshadow. I also used the Ben Nye Bruise wheel for some depth as well, but an eyeshadow alone can do the trick!

4. Using a concealer, highlighting pencil/pen, or something similar, to outline the red scar lines and pretty much everything else to give the look more of a 3D dimensional look so it’s not so flat. It really makes it pop. I used my Belletto Studios Highlighting & Concealer quad and my Milani Brow Highlighting Pencil for this.

5. Using a Q-tip or a small brush, blend any harsh edges so it looks more natural and not as harsh. I then used “Orchid” eyeshadow from the Lorac Mega Palette to outline some areas so it looks more realistic to give it that pinkish edge you would commonly see in a wound.

6. Using the MAC Pro Paint Stick in Black, or an eyeliner or a black eye pencil if you do not have any theatrical makeup, start making the “staples” on the face, remember to curve them a bit in the direction of the face as it naturally would look like, as oppose to straight on, as this will make it look more 3D.

7. Don’t worry if it’s not looking like much at this point, you just want to get the basics down first, then it’s easier to go back and shade and highlight as needed. Once you have drawn on the “staples”, you can highlight certain staples so it gives it that pop, and/or darken certain areas of the lines to look like dried blood, etc.

8. For the other eye, I just used some dark gray/brown eyeshadow to give a more sulken, worn, tired look.

9. You can complete the look with colored contacts or if you already have bright blue eyes then you are lucky! I didn’t have blue contacts so I just changed my eye color in Photoshop. :)

Happy Halloween! (Zombie School Girl Look)

Happy Halloween everyone! Freaky huh? I was inspired by Petrilude’s look he did on YouTube from the MAC Face Charts a few years ago, and thought it would be a fun way to incorporate it in my Zombie school girl look at work for more texture.

Every year at work we dress up and have a fun lil party and costume contest, I usually never go all out for Halloween, but I do love holidays in general so I do tend to get festive for the sake of it; so this year I decided to go crazy with makeup and do a zombie look (and then added the school girl flare). The contacts really make the costume in my opinion. :) It was pretty funny getting weird and fearful looks, and scaring my co-workers! LOL!

It’s always cool seeing the other costumes too, and above all, seeing all the creativity involved. There was Jack Sparrow (I loved his costume!), a cowgirl, a cute sumo wrestler, Jessica Rabbit, a Rubik’s cube, Audrey Hepburn, Lara Croft, a gypsy, Black Swan, a devil, Steve Jobs, a pirate, and a referee.

Here are the products I used:

– Ben Nye Scar Wax (for the forehead wound), applied it with Ben Nye Spirit Gum
– Used Ben Nye Cuts and Abrasions Wheel for all the “bruised” areas to add more depth
– Added fake theatrical blood on the wound (forehead)

– For the eye, I used a zipper from Jo-Ann’s and cut it to size
– Shaded it in with a red Sephora chunky pencil, then the red color in the Ben Nye Cuts and Abrasions Wheel. I shaded the bottom with MAC e/s in “Carbon”, then put a tiny bit of fake blood on top.
– Used MAC l/s in “Fleshpot” for dead looking lips
– Stitches tattoos from Walmart

– For Zombie teeth, I used Ben Nye Tooth Paint in Zombie Rot (Green color) and Black

Halloween Look: Pop Art Inspired

Outlined everything with black pencil eyeliner and liquid eyeliner, shaded tears with Mehron Creme Blend stick in White (also used it for the dots and powdered MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in “Medium Dark” on top to tone it down and not make it stark white), and Mehron Aqua Paint Pastel Palette as well as a few MAC eyeshadows.
To cover my real eyebrows, I used Kryolan Eyebrow Wax to cover my real eyebrows, and powdered it on top and drew them in using a black eyeliner. Also used the White Mehron paint to give that reflection look on my lips, and used the black eyeliner again to line my lips. Lipstick used is MAC’s Mattene lipstick in “Immodest”.
