Create lighted luminous skin by mixing your HD Foundation shade with white Flash Color. Apply with a brush and buff with the HD Sponge for a transparent effect.
Smooth and finish with a small amount of HD Micofinishing Powder.
Highlight the high points of the cheekbones, bridge of nose, and forehead with #967 Star Powder.
Sculpt the contours of cheeks, temples, and jaw with#165 Eye Shadow.
Apply #16 Aqua Shadow from lash line to crease, then, layer #61Eye Shadow onto the lid and through the crease to intensify color.
Apply #8C Aqua Lip to the top and bottom waterline. Line the upper lash line with Aqua Black creating a winged effect at the outer corner of your eye. Apply 25L Aqua Eyes to the bottom lash line then smudge.
Now, add depth in the crease by applying #163 Eye Shadow through the
crease and re-intensify with Aqua Black.
Finish lashes with Smoky Extravagant#112 Faux Lash.
Define lips with #12C Aqua lip. Fill the lips in with #12 Aqua Rouge. Add dripping blood for a freshly feed effect.
Start by laying down a thin amount of spirit gum. Roll two small pieces of plasto wax
into balls. Press flat and lay down over sprit gum, use your fingers to blend edges
into your skin. Then puncture the Plasto Wax with a spatula. To enhance the torn
flesh effect use Flash Color in black to darken punctured area and red around the
outside of the wound for irritation. Finish the effect with Thick Blood.
For my final Halloween post, I wanted to share a very cool tutorial. YouTube sensation, make-up artist Promise Phan showed one lucky fan how to get the ultimate Halloween make-over! Promise demonstrated the “Roy Lichtenstein crying girl” look with cool, easy and doable application techniques. Promise is incredibly engaging during the live ooVoo chat where she also engages with consumers via Facebook and Twitter, and I just love her wit. It’s a great, interactive exchange and addresses real consumer’s questions and comments across the make-up spectrum. This video is truly great for makeup students, or beauty buffs alike.
Yesterday, I participated in a very fun Google+ Hangout session with Samantha Lim, Editor-in-Chief of FashionIndie, Janna Mandell of Beauty Binge and Stacy Reid of TINte Cosmetics. I was thrilled to work with all of these amazing ladies! We put together a video of Halloween inspired looks in hopes to give some inspiration to anyone searching for a last minute costume. Janna did an adorable kitty kat with sultry black eyes, and Stacy showed how TINte cosmetics could help you achieve several different looks (I am currently obsessed with the sexy green goblin!).
And me? Well, I decided to rock out my old faithful 80’s girl. Seriously, this is my go-to costume when I am blank on ideas and in need of a quick, and fun outfit. And, secretly, I am still in love with the 80’s. I used to ADORE my big neon earrings and bright pink Wet n’ Wild lipgloss. Ahhh, those were the days of excess and glory!
