IT'S HALLOWEEN BITCHES

To me Halloween basically begins straight after Craig's birthday at the beginning of the month. As soon as his cards came down all the decor went up and I lept into ironing out the details of our party, (the week after Halloween, damn Craig's bar job), and our outfits. Over on my individual blog, Those Moments of Serendipity I talk about lifestyle and lots of beauty bits, so I'm no stranger to makeup.

This year I've put a lot of thought in my makeup as I knew I didn't want to be wearing any extravagant costume I'd have to worry about and I knew I'd be doing Craigs too. Here are some of the looks I experimented with.





This was my first look on Craig; I started by using one of my foundations (yes I'm that colour) as a base, then ringed his eyes with lots of eyeliner and black shadow. I went on to use a combination of red lipstick and fake blood for drips under his eyes, from his nose and corner of the mouth.





For this second look I wanted him to look a little more like a lab experiment or murder victim than a demon. So I again went in with my foundation and added purple and red shadows where I wanted him to look bruised like the inner corners of his eyes, under his eyes and his cheekbone. I then dripped blood from the inner corner of his eyes and over the main cheek bruise.

Now the neck wound is where it gets a little more complicated. I drew around his neck with black eyeliner before blending it out then adding red and purple shadows around the wound, blending again to create depth. I then covered the wound itself with blood and added some drips below to make it look a little more authentic.




When I first thought about attempting this look I thought it was going to be really difficult but in fact I found it a lot easier than I thought I would. I started by cutting the shapes on the extended smile shape from toilet roll (classy!) then roughing them up a little for texture. 

I completed my base, bruising and eye makeup as before, then went on to making the smile look gory. The smile shape was glued to my face following my natural lip line towards my cheekbone using eyelash glue. I added eyeliner to the middle of the smile before adding lots of red and purple shadows, continuing all around the mouth. I finished off the smile with lots of blood and drips as well as layering red and black lipsticks on my lips to add depth.





For my fourth and final look my contacts had arrived to make a somewhat less gory look seem more intense. I added the contacts first so I didn't damage completed eye makeup putting them in. I used shadows, liner and blood around my eyes as well as lipsticks, shadows and blood around my mouth for a spooky but comfortable look for a long night!

In the run up to the party I've also made a playlist of a mix of recent hits, some party classics and Halloween themed rock, enjoy!


Hope you all have a great Halloween!
