Titania

04:00

This is a look a created for a competition (sadly I didn't win anything with it but hey, the experience was good and it was fun to create) that @makeupmouse on instagram was holding, the theme of the competition being MYTHS & LEGENDS. Naturally I couldn't really think of a legend to create so after trawling the big wide web for a short while, I came across the myth of Titania, the queen of fairies and this is my look created on this myth.

What do you think? 
Again for this look, like the clown look before, I used Mehron's Paradise paints basic palette for most of the look, as well as using some of the pearls from The Glitter Army and Kat Von D's Witches liquid lipstick. Those little leaf props? I made those on the spur of a moment at work whilst I had a free moment to myself.
I'm happy with how my look turned out and there's always next time for future competitions :)

Clown

14:49

I've never created a clown look on myself before, I've done them on my clients and models for some looks. However, they've never really been a happier type of clown, more the evil and scary kind which I have to admit, is pretty fun to create.
So anyway, although this was a happier looking clown look, I still think it's sort of creepy and definitely Halloween worthy, probably a good look to share with you to finish off my Halloween looks though?



Products
Mehron Paradise Paints basic palette
Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipsticks in Witches and Ayesha
Festival Face chunky glitter in Neon Lights
Too Faced Born This Way foundation in Ivory
Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lipstick in Abused
Eyeliner is from Japan (sorry I have no idea what brand it is)
Kiko Milano eyeshadows

I'd like to create another look like this next year, I think. It's different and I think with a costume to go with it, it's definitely the type of look that you can go all out on!

What kind of likes would you like to see now that the spooky season has gone by and the festive period is upon us?
Drop me a comment!

Pointillism

12:23

This is a different kind of look and something that I've never ever attempted before but I was inspired by a make up artist that I follow on instagram - @Erikamariemua.
So the great thing about this look is that it hardly requires any products at all to create it, all I've used in this look is Illamasqua's skin base foundation, their precision gel liner in Infinity and quick flick of their Masquara too. 
The hardest part? It's pretty time consuming when you begin and perhaps using NYX Cosmetics new dotting eyeliner would make it faster, I'll have to try and get back you guys on that but otherwise it's fun and so different.
The absolute worst part of this look? Removing all of it. My goodness, I spent at least half an hour scrubbing it from my face, another reason to not use Illamasqua's precision gel liner to create anything like this again in the future ha!
I'm sad that the Halloween season is now over and done with but I still have a couple of looks that I haven't actually shared on here yet so I'll keep it alive for another week or so ;)

Now to move on and start to inspire myself to create some none Halloween looks that still have a pop!

Pennywise

15:04

This is one of those looks that I just had to create due to the popularity of the recent IT film which has made the Pennywise look so popular in the lead up to Halloween this year.
As well as that, it's also given the evil clown look popularity for the second year running!
Products
Illamasqua skin base foundation in 6 & eyeshadow in Daemon
Mac Cosmetics lipstick in Russian Red
Eylure lashes in Vegas Nay Fiercely Fabulous
Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette
Tarte Cosmetics Shape Tape concealer in Fair Neutral

I'm not a huge fan of horror films, even though I love the make-up and love to re-create it, which as my good friend stated, was weird. Ha! 
Is anyone planning on going out as a creepy clown this year? I'll probably pass on it myself, unless I can't come up with any other ideas for myself.

Jigsaw

15:04

This is a look that can be repeated and repeated without getting old, especially as they always seem to bring out another SAW related movie, the latter being Jigsaw itself.
Anyway, I created this look several years ago now but only with some messy face paints and it wasn't my best work, I wouldn't even class this as some of my best either but it's and improvement on last time and it's timeless, I'll probably end up doing another version of it again next year ;)
 Products
Illamasqua Skin Base mixer in 01 and Daemon eyeshadow
Mac Cosmetics Russian Red lipstick
Lime Crime Styletto lipstick
Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette using Black Truffle
Rimmel London Wonderfully Real mascara

Without fail, every year, I see at least one person dressed as Jigsaw.
It's such a timeless look and perfect for Halloween.

Stitches

15:04

Another Halloween look, because I can't get enough creativity out of my system this month for the spooky season!
This kind of came about after my puzzle face that I created and I feel like I could have done a better job but I have to remember not to be to critical of my own work because it only leads to being too fussy and never being happy with what one creates, when in reality we always grow more and more from our previous work.


The product list for this look is pretty much the same as the one for my Puzzle face which is several posts below :)

Monster's Touch

15:04

I love doing some Special FX make-up! I don't claim to be amazing at it but I'm getting there slowly, I'm teaching myself more and more tricks and coming up with ideas for creations and looking up tips online. 
I came up with this idea last week, I've never done something like this before so it was kind of tricky to begin with but I'm happy with the end result and even got to freak a few people out at work with it, ha! 

I used a bunch of Kiko Milano eyeshadows for this look but they appear to have been discontinued or re-issued in another form/name or whatever so I can't actually list those to you because I'm not sure they're still available for anyone to buy but otherwise I'm wearing some Elegant Touch false nails and I've used special fx wax, latex and fake blood for this look.
As I get braver with my creations, I'm hoping I can push the boundaries more and more with each creation.

xoxo
