I was saying yesterday, in my ‘Pinteresting Monday’ post, that I’d post a Candy Skull – Halloween Makeup Tutorial today, so here it is!
I love looking up Halloween tutorials, but let’s face it, they’ll never turn out as well as the makeup artist has done them. I’m definitely no where near being a makeup artist, so this is probably the easiest tutorial ever, not the best! But the easiest haha..
I only used whatever products I had anyway, this is why this look is so easy, and you don’t have to go out looking for Halloween makeup.
So, first I applied a light layer of moisturiser (I used Declarē, but any will do!) Then I used L’Oréal Infallible Primer (you can read my review on that here). So after that was set, I literally just covered my face in NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 604 Milk Lait. But you can use any white eye pencil, preferably a big size pencil so you’re not there all night! Then, using a beauty blender, I just set the white with baby powder.
I then used a liquid eyeliner to draw to circle around my eyes (using my eyebrows and nose as a guide to get them more symmetrical) and then drew small half circles all around the side of the two bigger circles. I kind of rushed through this part so that’s why it looks a bit messy, the smaller circles are definitely the most time consuming part! If you’re doing your makeup for a night out, it’s better to set any black liner you’re doing with black eyeshadow to make it last better.
I then drew a thick line with the same eyeliner across my eye and flicked it into a cut crease, again I was rushing but like I said I’m no makeup artist ha!
You can use any colours you like for this part, I used Half Baked and Trick by Urban Decay. I put Half Baked all over the lid and around my eyes, then blended it out with Trick. You could use any colours, blue, pink, whatever. I just like the gold shades and I had them already.
I also did some contour with both these shades too, along my cheekbones and forehead.
Next, I drew small lines between my nose and up from them, I drew two swirls across my forehead. There’s no need to follow this exactly, you can be as creative as you want, that’s the fun part 🙂 Then, in the middle of my lips I simply just coloured them in black.
Drawing two lines starting at the corner of my lips, I swept them across just under my cheekbones. Then, drawing little lines all the way down across these lines.
Adding a few more swirls around my cheeks and jawline, and colour in the end of my nose, as well as adding a little detail to my chin. I’m all done! So simple.
Hope you all enjoyed! Is anyone going to try? 🙂
Happy almost Halloween!
