Day of the Dead Skull Makeup

I think this Day of the Dead Skull Makeup will be my last look for this month. This is a requested look from a friend on Instagram. Before we begin, I’d like to say that I respect the Mexican culture and those who celebrate the Day of the Dead. There’s no intent of cultural appropriation. I created this look because I was interested in the way the Mexican culture celebrates their loved ones who are no longer with us. Its vibrant and colorful use of face paintings serve as a reminder to remember those who have passed as well as celebration of life.

In any case, should you decide to dress up as a Catrina, or have Sugar Skull painted on your face for Halloween, please reconsider. The Day of the Dead is a festival where people pay respect to those who have passed. It is a culture! Be respectful, please.

Anyways, I do not have a step-by-step tutorial for this look.

Products used

  • White base – MAC Acrylic Paint in White
  • Eyeshadows – UD Electric palette in Urban, Slow Burn, Freak, Thrash
  • Eyeliner (for teeth & line works) – Shu Uemura Calligraphy ink liner
  • Face paints – WolfeFX Essential palette

Killer Clown Halloween Makeup

I’m back with another Halloween tutorial! This time I’ve decided to do a Killer Clown Halloween makeup. This look is fairly easy, and all you need is a simple basic face paint along with some artist brushes. For this tutorial, I used Wolfe FX Face painting palette called Hydrocolor Essentials, which are water activated. Other water-activated brands that are easier to find in Canada include MAC Pro Chromacake (can be found on their website or MAC Pro store at Bloor, Toronto), and Snazaroo face paints which can be found in most Art Stores (Curry’s, Michael’s).

Even though water-activated face paints are easy to use, they can also be easily removed. So, be very careful if you like to lick your lips or if you’re going to drink a lot of liquid while wearing this makeup. Also, please note that certain colors are not recommended to be used near the eyes, esp. those with red and orange dyes.

Killer Clown makeup tutorial

A trick to make the face paint stays well on the skin, and not crack is to dip the brush very lightly into water. Try not to cake on the face paint, the thinner the layer, the less likely it’ll crack. For this Killer Clown look, I didn’t want a smooth white face since why would a killer pay so much attention to their white base anyways, right?! So, don’t worry about the imperfect and streaky white base since it’ll add a bit more to the character.

How-to:

  1. I applied White face paint all over my face, and on my neck.
  2. Using a Black face paint, I created some evil looking brows.
  3. With a red paint, I created a diamond shape on my right eye. As well as a round shape on my nose.
  4. I created a huge smile on my face, and the outlines of teeth using a Black face paint.
  5. Add details on the teeth by adding light brown, then dark brown at the edges of the teeth. I also added some cracks on the teeth.
  6. Add some scracthes, blood splatter, dirt splatter all over the face for added effect.

The pictures above are pretty self explanatory, I think. If you have any questions/inquiries feel free to comment or message me.

  • Wolfe fx Hydracolor Essential palette

Grim Reaper Halloween Makeup

Another Halloween makeup look for today’s post! I have been wanting to do a skull makeup, so I created this Grim Reaper Halloween makeup look. I wanted to created a more evil, creepy skull look, so I googled up “Grim Reaper” and used the image I found as a reference.

*For my other Halloween makeup tutorials, please check out “Halloween” category*

The_Grim_Reaper

I sooo need to practice on my blending, as well as the teeth. It’s really hard to do the teeth, so note to self – practice drawing skull and teeth! I also should have leave the teeth outline after I colored it bone colored. So, if you want an easier to do the teeth, color it first before outlining the teeth! Also, for the “bone” part, I mixed beige cream product with white. I wanted an off white color, not a stark white.

skull makeup step by step

 

Anyways, let’s get on the tutorial!

  1. I drew outlines of bones using an angled eyebrow brush and a matte black eyeshadow.
  2. Mixing a beige cream with white, I applied this “bone” color on the areas where the bones are.
  3. You can set the cream product with an eyeshadow or translucent powder.
  4. For the darker areas, I filled it using a black face paint. I left the eye sockets last since I have to put my contacts in, and I didn’t want to get it messy.
  5. Using a white cream product (you can use white face paint), I filled in the teeth dragging the color upwards towards the face for the upper teeth, and down towards the chin for the lower teeth.
  6. I put my contacts in, and filled my eye sockets with black face paint.
  7. For shading around the bone areas, I used brown eyeshadow first then grey to deepen the shadows. All I can say about this part is to have the areas shaded as detailed as you can. I added some eyebrow creases as well to make the whole look a bit more evil looking.

Dark Forest Nymph (Halloween Makeup)

I’m back!!! I apologized for missing last week, I was down with a cold and fever, not to mention I had guests staying over. I finally was able to recover on the weekend, and started cleaning up. I realized that Halloween is in like 2 weeks, so I had to start this week with a Halloween Makeup tutorial.

As you all know, I have been doing several creatives with Daniela of Daniela Majic Photography. She is an amazing photographer, and she has a thing for flowers and anything gorgeous. Anyways, I think I got the flower bug from her, because I decided to go make myself a Flower Crown. Michael’s was having a sale on some of the fake flowers, so I grabbed some and created my own Flower Crown.

Since I made the Flower Crown, I wanted to do a creepy but pretty Halloween makeup so I decided to do this dark fairy look. I was going to draw teeth on my lips, but decided to do a puckered lips area instead. Also, I added squiggly lines under my eyes because I thought why nooot?! I didn’t want to make my under eyes too plain. Since I draw inspiration from the flowers, I thought we can just say the squiggly lines were inspired by roots and such.

Anyways, I used mostly Kat Von D for this look. Another reason why you should get Kat Von D Shade + Light face and eye palettes! They are amazing! So, for this look, mostly just contouring with different shades of browns and greys, and black to add depth. Always start with the lightest brown, then deepen it with grey, and eventually with black, especially on the neck area. I left the highlighting last. I highlighted using mostly using the white and yellow-beige from the Shade+Light face/eye palettes.

You don’t have to do the nose the way I did it, I wanted to show a the nose is somewhat degraded since everything else in the face is pretty sunken in.

For the eyes, at first I wore the red/white (bloodshot?) contacts at first which looks pretty sultry. Then, I decided I wanted to give the whiteout contacts, which give a totally different feel altogether. The one thing with the whiteout contacts, though, you can’t really see much when you wear it. It’s quite uncomfortable since  my sight was quite compromised.

UD Vice 3 – Joker Inspired Look

I’ve been realizing that lately most of my tutorials used neutral, earthy colors. Today, I decided to use some colors, so I pulled out my UD Vice 3 palette, and here we are! For some reason, I thought of “Joker”, probably because I’ve been bombarded with Suicide Squad news on my fb feeds. So, I combined purple and green to make a wearable Joker inspired look.

Again, I’m featuring Tweezerman tools today. I just want to point out the Tweezerman ProMaster eyelash curler that I used for this look is pretty great for those who have almond/deep-set eyes, or those with monolids. For more info regarding this curler, please check out my Instagram, I posted a picture and some info over there. I also posted a video on Instagram on how I used ABH brow pomade and Tweezerman Brow brush to fill my brows.

White Sugar Skull Makeup

As Halloween is fast approaching, I’m trying to squeeze in as many Halloween Looks as I can! This is my 5th Halloween tutorial for 2014, and I think this year I created the most Halloween tutorials compared to previous years! Anyways, for the 5th tutorial, I wanted to do a Sugar Skull makeup, but I wanted to create something different than the usual sugar skull. I’ve done a sugar skull makeup before on models using colors and black lines. So, while I was browsing for inspiration, I found this video on youtube by one of my favorite youtube gurus, Samantha from Batalash. I loved how she did hers using white and mainly brown colors. I decided to use her video as my inspiration and create this look.

I was running out of white pencil eyeliner while I was doing this look, so I switched to a white water-activated face paint by Snazaroo. Due to this, you might see some part of the makeup looks whiter than the others, that’s because of the change in medium (pencil to paint).

What you need for this look:

  • Foundation
  • Setting powder
  • Eyeshadows – light brown, dark brown, black
  • White pencil eyeliner or face paint
  • Brushes
  • Contact lens – optional

For a list of all the brands that I’ve used in this tutorial, please check it at the end of the tutorial.

white sugar skull makeup

How-to:

1. I applied foundation all over my face, and set it using a setting powder.

2. Using the tip of a very firm flat eyeshadow brush, I applied a light brown eyeshadow around my eye socket.

3. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I filled my eye area using the same brown eyeshadow as step 2.

4. Again, using the tip of a firm flat eyeshadow brush, I applied a darker brown eyeshadow, lightly blending it towards the center of my eyes.

5. Using an angled eyeliner brush, I applied a black eyeshadow as an outline of my eyesocket. I lightly blend it inwards.

6. Again, I outlined my eye socket using a white pencil eyeliner. You want to sharpen this eyeliner and clean the tip every now and then to prevent the color from getting muddy.

7. Using the same white pencil eyeliner, I created the outline and spider web design on my face.

  • I created a wide spider web on my forehead.
  • I outlined where I’d like the hollow of my nose going to be.
  • I also created a line on the hollow of my cheeks towards the corner of my mouth.
  • I created vertical lines over my mouth to outline where my teeth are going to be.

8. Next, I used the brown eyeshadow to filled in my nose and create some shadows in between my teeth, as well as the hollows of my cheeks.

9. On the nose, I also lightly applied a black eyeshadow just  at the edge where the white and the brown meets to create depth.

10. Using a white face paint, I created some dots on my face.

11. I also created flower petals around the eye socket, and lighten up the teeth to make it stand out even more.

  • Dr. Who The Waters of Mars Makeup

    Alright! So, another quick Halloween makeup tutorial for those who don’t feel like buying overpriced costumes, or have time to make one! I was actually running out of ideas on what kind of last minute Halloween makeup looks I should do, so I asked N for advice and since he’s a Whovian, I knew he was going to say Weeping Angels. Instead, he surprised me and told me to check out Dr. Who The Waters of Mars makeup on Google. I did an image search and I absolutely love it!

    By no means the Waters of Mars virus makeup was easy if you want to replicate the exact look since they used prosthetic piece in the show. I used a picture I found on the Tardis Wiki and Bleeding Cool websites as references. Again, let me repeat myself by saying I could not replicate the makeup exactly on how the photos look like – I couldn’t really figured out how to get those super thin line using face paint, but still create an illusion of the skin sunken in or risen. I ended up creating depth on the cracks by creating a thicker line. Nevertheless, I was quite happy with the result!

    If you’re a Whovian, and don’t think this looks like the makeup on the show, I do sincerely apologize! I wish I can recreate to look exactly like the pictures just by face painting, but alas I couldn’t. Anyways, I hope everyone does enjoy this tutorial! Even if you don’t know the show, you can still recreate this look into a “Cracked skin” look or “broken doll” since it’s a similar concept!

    the waters of mars makeup

    How-to:

    1. I applied a matte foundation all over my face using a Sigma Kabuki Angled brush.

    • I used a matte foundation since I want to look very matte and sickly.
    • You can even apply a lighter colored foundation if you prefer to look even paler.

    2. I set my foundation using a loose transparent powder and a powder brush.

    3. Using a blending brush, I mixed light and dark brown eyeshadow and applied it under my eyes, around the inner part of the eye socket, along the lower lash line, and on the crease. The idea is to make the eyes look sunken in since you’re infected with the virus and sick.

    4. I added a mix of purple and grey eyeshadow on top of the brown eyeshadow to create more depth.

    • The reason why you need a purple and grey eyeshadow is because under your skin you have blood vessels, which aren’t getting enough oxygen due to the virus (or you being sick).
    • So, those vessels on my skin will look purplish, while on others they might look more on the blue end.
    • How you find out if you have purple or blue vessels? Take a look at your wrist and see if you have a bluish vein or a purplish one.

    5. Using an angled face contour brush, I applied a mixture of dark brown and grey eyeshadow on the hollows of my cheeks to make my cheeks look sunken in.

    • I blended the contour down to make my cheeks look even more sunken in.

    6. I also applied some of the same powder along my temples and sides of my nose.

    7. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied a mixture of the light and dark brown eyeshadow on the folds of my cheeks.

    • You can skip this step altogether if you don’t feel like doing it.
    • I did it because I wanted to create an even more eerie feeling to the whole look.

    8. Using the pictures I found on the Tardis Wiki and Bleeding Cool, I created the outlines of the cracked skin using a black face paint and eyeliner brush.

    the waters of mars makeup

    9. I filled in my lips with black face paint and a lip brush.

    10. I used the same dark brown eyeshadow as I’ve used in the previous steps to darken the edge of the lines.

    • While applying the eyeshadow, I keep in mind how to make these lines look deeper and sunken in.

    the waters of mars makeup

    11. Using a liquid eyeliner pen, I deepened the cracks by tracing the lines from step no. 8.

    • On some part of the cracks, I even colored some bits and pieces black altogether so I can create an illusion of depth.

    12. Lastly, I highlighted some part of the skin to make it look like it’s popping out from the face, and to make the lines look even deeper.

    • I used a light colored cream concealer for this and a pencil brush.

    Halloween – 3D Spider Face Painting

    Today’s tutorial is a good option for a last minute Halloween makeup idea! If you still haven’t decide what to do for Halloween, you can try to do this quick 3D Spider Face Painting look! Let me tell you that I have no background whatsoever in Art, and I managed to complete this look in about 20-minute. It’s fast, easy, and you don’t need many tools to create this 3D spider. You can also do it anywhere on your face/body. Actually my sister wanted me to do this on her face for Halloween when I showed it to her. So, there you go! A last minute Halloween idea without the need to wear any costumes!

    So, I googled “Black Widow Spider” and also “realistic spider tattoo” to be used as reference for this look. You’ll see a tons of images on the web, so just pick one you like, and put it in front of you when you’re doing this. It’s a lot easier to create this look when you have a visual right in front of you.

    All you need for this tutorial is:

    1. Image of spider (or tattoo)
    2. Brown eyeliner or eyebrow pencil (optional)
    3. Black liquid pen eyeliner – the easiest to work with. Try to find a pen-type liquid eyeliner so you can use it like you would use a marker.
    4. Red face paint or lip liner or lipstick
    5. White face paint or eyeliner
    6. Black pencil eyeliner

    For brands I used, please check out the list of products at the end of the tutorial.

    How-to:

    1. I began by sketching out the outline of the spider on my arm using a brown eyebrow pencil.

    2. Using the same brown pencil, I also sketched out where the shadows of the legs and body going to be. Make sure the “shadows” are thinner (use less pressure on the pencil). This way, you won’t mistook the legs from the shadow.

    3. Using a black eyeliner pen, I thickened the body and legs of the spider.

    • The spider legs have 3 parts – upper thigh, middle thigh, and the long thin thigh. These thighs are separated by 2 joints. The easiest way to imagine the way their legs work is to look at your finger, or just use your reference photo as a sample.
    • To draw the thigh, just create a long almond-ish shape (look at photo below to see what I mean).

    4. I created the red marking of the “Black Widow” spider using a red face paint, then I filled out the rest of the body using a black liquid eyeliner.

    5. I filled in the gap on the thighs using the same black liquid pen eyeliner.

    6. I cleaned up any excess of the sketch from step 1 using Maybelline Clean Express Mineral Water and cotton bud (i.e. q-tip).

    • For example, you can see that I made the top front leg slightly shorter with the black eyeliner than my initial sketch using brown eyeliner.

    7. You can skip this step if you want to, but I darken the shadow of the legs and body slightly using a black pencil eyeliner.

    • Make sure all the shadows of the legs touched the tip of the spider’s “real” leg where it touches your body. This will create that 3D effect, where it looks like the spider is on your body.

    8. Lastly, using the tip of an eyeliner brush and a white face paint, I applied some highlight on the legs of the spider and 4 dots on the head, and VOILA! DONE!
