Halloween Experiments

If you guys know me, or have been following me for a while, you know I am still learning. Of course in any type of service industry you SHOULD always be learning, but you know what I mean... I don't call myself a "makeup artist" because I still have some things to learn and/or perfect. I found a nice Halloween kit at CVS that retails for $5.99 but was on sale for $3! I had to get it so I could try some stuff. That being said here are a couple attempts at Halloween creepiness lol.

First was the creepy clown/ Joker look.

I wasn't too happy with this one, but my brother & his friend LOVED it. So I wiped it off and then did this look:

I started out with just the 3 scratches/scars and then just kept adding, LOL. I'm actually really proud of this look because I've never done anything like this at all. And I used eyelash adhesive to create the wounds!

The little kit came with fake blood so I added that in the end. I wish I took pics of the process because I never thought it would turn out like this :) Oh and that fake blood, btw, is so nasty & salty. BLEH! I don't know how they expect people to put it in their mouths. No way Jose.

What are you doing for Halloween?

FOTD: A Secret Fexi Revenge

LOL @ the title. I like naming my looks, it helps remind me what shadows I used.

This look was created with my new pressed piggies! I hadn't used Her Revenge eyeshadow yet so I threw on this random Akedemics tank top (it was still hot in VA >:P ) and committed a makeup "sin". I matched my eyeshadow to my clothes!!! *GASP* (dun dun duuuuun!). I personally don't care about matching makeup to what you're wearing. As long as it's not overkill... i.e. red shirt, eyes, cheeks, and lips... but whatever.

Primer: TFSI
Shadows: GDE Her Revenge (lid-applied wet), GDE Incognito (crease), HH Fexi Girl (bottom lashline), GDE Secretive (bottom inner lashline), WnW Vanity Palette Matte Camel shade (browbone)
Mascara: Too Faced Lash Injection
Liner: WnW black gel liner pressed into upper lashline & black pencil liner on waterline

Concealer: MAC Select Moisture Cover NC45
Foundation: MAC Studio Fix Powder NC50
Blush: WnW Pearlescent Pink, MAC Petticoat MSF
