A friend of mine fixed their annual Halloween-party on Saturday, I participate when I’m not working and this year I was off.
So, on a short notice, what to wear? I watched a thousand YouTube video-tutorials, Googled pictures and ideas and this is what I came up with. YouTube granted me with Alex Faction Voodoo priest-tutorial and I was keen to try it!
Emppi took some pictures, these first two are from her 🙂
I started with Kicks moisturizing primer and topped it with Clinique Redness solution primer. First I lined the skull with white liner amd filled it in with Grimas water activated face paint in white.
Errmm. This one I sent to a friend, but what the doodle, I show it to you too.
I lined the skull with Grimas kohl-liner in gray and smudged it out with some dark brown/taupe eyeshadow. I also lined my eye-area and nose. When I was happy with my blending, I darkened up the line with some black pencil liner.
I also added some shading to the skull with pencil liners, brown eyeshadow and my contouring palette.
To my chin area I used my regular products, Clinique Redness solutions foundation and W7 contour palette.
To my eyes, I used NYX Liquid Gold and my lid and Benefit Quick, Look busy on my crease, I also lightened my browbone with a nude shadow from Kryolan. I did my brows on my regular way, just darkened them up a little.
Lips I lined with black pencil and used some metallic green Kryolan cream eyeshadow (I just love sample jars woth no names..) on the middle part.Finished off everything with Mehron Setting powder in translucent.
Kimmo’s costume is a whole another story, that man loves Halloween more than I do!
I’m so sorry about the awful lightning , but I can’t fit myself in a light box. Here’s my whole outfit, little voodoo-doll and everything! I teased my hair and wore my HRC-hat with it. Knee-high socks, two petticoats and a black shirt, few necklaces and a bracelet, I’m happy how this turned out, in less than a week.
My hubbys fave is made with Grimas face paints in white and black. He wore a top hat, which is missing in the picture .
Have a horrific Halloween!
