Hello everyone! How are we doing today?
Since I love Halloween and Fall, I wanted to try something special for the month of October. Every week in October I want to try a new makeup look, whether it’s gore, beauty, or fantasy.
I just wanted to try something fun and different, something like this which I’ve never tried before!
Anyhoo for this weeks instalment I wanted to try colourful and a bit abstract. The first thing that came to mind was Mermaid! 🐠
This is kind of my take on a heartbroken Mermaid, which I have no idea how my brain concocted that idea.
I knew I wanted to do a Mermaid, and had the prosthetics made and ready to go, but I just needed the rest of my character.
The prosthetics are made out of super lightweight clay (from the dollar store), and set using liquid latex, which is great for holding colour.
Surrounding that are ‘barnacles’ sculpted out of Ben Nye scar wax.
On the face I used:
👻 Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation in Ivory
👻 E.l.f setting powder
👻 NYX ‘On the Go’ Palette (using vivid pink, green and purple shades)
👻 Milani Vital Brights (green and pearl)
👻 Covergirl Total Tease Mascara, very coated to look spidery, and smudged under the eye.
👻 I kept the lips muted with foundation to keep the eyes and face the focus of colour.
I also wanted to keep this very drugstore friendly, especially since not everyone has time (on money) to go and buy all new makeup just for Halloween. There are lots of great spooky options right at your fingertips.
Thank you guys for reading and please leave a comment telling me what you love most about this season! 🎃
Have a wonderful day!
