Not long till Halloween now guys and dolls! If you are stuck for ideas, do not fret, as this tutorial is just one of many coming to the blog this week. Today, I present to you, the Scary Doll Halloween Make-up Tutorial.
No need to break the bank for Halloween, you can use products such as these from Sleek Make-up available online from Pauls Hair World in their new Beauty Section. Whilst your there you can even pick up a wig or two. For this particular look I used the Sleek I-Divine Acid Palette*, Candy Cane True Colour Lipstick* and a black liquid eyeliner*.
I also used a white face paint from The Face Painting Store and two sets of falses lashes from Lash Boutique. The rest of the make-up you will definitely already have in your make-up bag. Super simple, and will not take you long to put together at all. Are we ready?
Step One - Base
Apply your primer, foundation, concealer as normal - or if you want to be super scary a few shades lighter than usual. I used M.A.C ProLongwear foundation in NC15, Amazing Cosmetics Concealer in Light Golden and M.A.C Prep & Prime Light Boost.
Step Two - Brows
Square off your eyebrows, first by drawing an outline and then filling them in with cartoon hair like strokes. I used Paul and Joe Beaut Eyebrow Liner in 03.
Step Three - Eyes
Using the Sleek Makeup I-Divine Acid Palette*, we want to work on the eyes next. Apply the purple shade with a soft blending brush like the Crownbrush C433 Pro Blending Fluff, all over the lid and above the socket. Next along the socket line and into the crease buff the dark pink/cranberry shade. Don't worry about it being neat as you can then use a clean blending brush to soften and tidy up the edges. Along the brow bone take the white eyeshadow and also take a little down your nose and centre of your chin.
With a white face paint, or a white coloured substitute (foundation, cream shadow), use a synthetic concealer brush to apply the semi circle shapes in the "bags" of your eye contour. You want to create the illusion of bigger, doll like eyes. I used the new C332 Precision Foundation brush from Crownbrush. Use the photographs above as a guideline.
Step Four - Liner & Lashes
Taking the Sleek Black Liquid eyeliner you want to line both the top of your lash line, and then going around the edge of the white semi circle you have just created. Make sure you connect the lines at the inner and outer corners of your eyes. This is a little trickier than it sounds, so have cotton buds/q-tips at the ready to help you neaten up any edges or erase any mistakes.
Next choose two pairs of fluttery, doll like eye lashes. The ones I used are from Lash Boutique. Apply one set to the top lash line, and the second set you want to attach to the black pretend lower lash line. See photographs above for guidance.
Step 5 - Lips
First blank out your lips by buffing over them with your foundation brush. You could use concealer if you wanted! Then you want only fill in the centre of your lips, making them much smaller and doll like. Accentuate your cupids bow and round off the edges. I used Candy Cane from Sleek Makeup, followed by lining the edge with the Sleek liquid eyeliner. If you have a black eye liner or pencil then use that if you prefer or find it easier.
Step 6 - The Finishing Touches
To finish off the look I defined and contoured the hollows of my cheeks using M.A.C Harmony Blusher, I then dotted some faux freckles in the centre of my face, mainly on my nose using the same eyebrow pencil I used earlier. I used the Sleek Makeup Liquid liner to create fake cracks in the skin to give the overall look more drama. You could even add fake blood if you wanted to get all out crazy.
