Halloween: Doll & Blue

I'm so excited for Halloween, it's one of my favourite times of year! (apart from Christmas). I love playing around with make up to find something I like! I decided this year to invest in some Special FX too seeing as I love all the creative looks everyone are doing.

My first look is 'scary' dolly:

If you're like me and probably not brave enough to go out dressed actual scary on Halloween this is the right sort of way to go. You can look pretty(ish) and still get dressed up! It's also really simple to do so you won't be spending hours trying to get it right.

I kept the same foundation colour I normally use cause I'm already pale, but you can use a paler one if you wanted. I used a bronzer to contour under my cheekbones and around my face to give it a more defined shape (rather than moon face), but make sure you blend it in or you will get lines! You can do more dramatic brows than what I chose, but I was going for the more 'normal' look.  P.s don't forget a bright pink blusher for the apples of your cheeks!

To do my eyes I drew around them in white eye liner to make them appear wider and put it on my waterline too. I used a black eye liner to outline where I wanted my big 'eyes' to be. Instead of sticking on the fake eyelashes to my own lashes, I stuck them to the black outline and for the bottom I drew on some lashes. 

Depending on what look you're going for will depend what eye make up you want, I chose red, pink and greys to create the darker smokey eye. If you wanted to go for a more spooky look you could use more black tones, and for a more creepy look you can use a pink/red tone under your eyes too.

I outlined my lips using Nightmoth liner from Mac, it's the perfect dark purple liner.. definitely needed for even normal looks! I flicked the liner out at each corner to give it a more ventriloquist look rather than barbie lips (ha). I then used Mac Hang-Up lipstick and powdered a silver eye shadow over the top to give it 'light' effect.

Next look was more 'creepy' alien/mermaid make up:

I'm terrible with hair so I had noo idea what to do with mine other than it flop around and ruin it. But I love this look for a simple 'change' for Halloween. It isn't too bold but it's enough for someone to notice you've changed it up a bit. Melt Cosmetics do a amazing blue lip colour, but I'm yet to own it.. so for now I used my blue Collection eye liner on my lips. The eye liner brought out an beautiful shade of blue and the longevity was great as it worked as a stain (not so good if you plan to take it off straight away).

I coloured my brows with a blue eye shadow from my Revolution palette and I used the same palette for my eyes. I went for a blue smokey eye, but if you were to go for something more spooky you could add more of the blue tone under your eyes with a white eye liner in the waterline. It would work quite nice with slicked back hair for an 'alien' look.
