Skeleton Makeup Look

Aloha pals!

I hope y’all are fantastic and indulging in the joys of this season as much as I am. As Halloween time is here, I thought it would be fun to make the best out of this opportunity. If you know me, I take great delight in creating new looks so this is merely my take on a Halloween skeleton inspired look. It’s relatively easy and affordable but obviously, you can personalise it however you like. Enjoy!

Eyes

  • Conceal and correct. (It’s alright even if you don’t, we’re creating a skeleton face after all)
  • Sweep a white powder or eye shadow across your eye from lash to brow.
  • Blend a brown eye shadow just above the socket.
  • Apply a sharp black eye shadow in the crease, simultaneously blending it with the brown eye shadow.
  • Keep on blending to achieve smokey eyes.
  • Use eyeliner to line the upper lids and extend it to the end of the black eye smokey shadow to give it a winged eye effect (shown in the images).
  • Darken it with a liquid eyeliner if you wish.
  • Take the black pencil eye liner (or liquid) and draw an extended black line at the inner corners of your eyes.
  • Fill in your eyebrows and give them a sharp edge.
  • Then use a glittery white/silver eye shadow/highlighter and sweep it at the upper inner corners of your eyes (above the black line). Define the lash line with the same eye shadow.

Nose

  • Then just draw a skeleton-like nose and fill it in. If you wish, you could extend the black line over your eyebrows as well. Slightly blend it out.

Face

  • Contour with a brown shade at the hollows of your cheeks, temples (all the usual places).
  • To give it a more skeleton-like effect, take a black eye shadow and use the same contour brush to blend it with the brown contour. This will give your cheekbones more depth.
  • Sweep some highlighter over the top of your cheeks.
  • Draw vertical lines (as teeth) about half an inch apart on your lips with a black pencil lip liner/ liquid liner.
  • Lastly, use a highlighter to brighten your lips between the vertical lines. Voila! You’ve been transformed into a skeleton!

Who says you can’t smile when you transform your face into a skeleton-like face!?

Keep smiling! Happy Halloween!🎃

😊

See ya💗

Leopard Inspired Eye

Hey pals!

Here we go again! I have a Leopard eye look inspired by the fur of my coat (faux fur). The Leopard fur fostered the eye look I am about to showcase. This eye look can be worn for occasions such as Halloween, depending upon your costume choice (I know Halloween is so far away) or festivals (one of my bestfriend said she would wear it).

So, let’s go!

– Prime your Eyes and put a powder all over your eyelids.

–  Then, take a brown eyeshadow and blend just above the socket. You can use a bronzer instead of the brown eyeshadow if you want a clearer finish.

– To intensify the eyeshadow above the socket, you can use a black pencil eyeliner to draw a line and then blend it.

– Next, I used Tanya Burr’s Hollywood eye Palette and filled my eyelids with nude delight eyeshadow.

– By using a sharp pointed eyeliner pencil, I drew black Leopard spots randomly and then filled them with gold coin eye shadow from the same palette (it’s not visible in the photos though).

– Then, I used a liquid eyeliner to darken the black outline of the spots I initially drew, and to make them stand out even more.

– I drew a thin wing afterwards but this is completely optional.

– Highlight your waterline, inner eye corners and under brow area using a white eyeshadow. I used the snowflake eye shadow from Tanya Burr’s galaxy eye palette.

– Hurry! Your intricate eye look is complete!

Honestly, this was my first attempt, and it took approximately 5 -10 minutes. So, you can certainly master this eye look yourself!

I understand that it’s not perfect as I am not a makeup expert; just someone who loves to create😊.

May you enjoy May! 😉
