Look: Halloween Is Coming #1
Okay confession time: I've never actually celebrated Halloween before. The last time I painted my face like a certain character or had a costume on was when I was a teenager going to an Anime convention (don't judge, it was awesome!). I've never even been to a costume party in my adult life! Not because I didn't want to, but because it just didn't happen.
I do think it's a very fun concept though, which is why I thought this month I'd give Halloween make-up a bit of attention so that when I do decide to attend a costume party, at least I know what the hell I want to be. I decided to just play around a bit and see what I could come up with as practice. I'm not sure I like it (for one, it's not scary at all and a bit sloppily done) but I still think it's a good concept for if I want to try something animalistic. It's also quite simple, so it's something anyone could do.
I tried to do a bit of contouring with the same blue colour that's on my eyes, but it kind of ended up looking like I slapped dirt on my face, haha! I do like the general eye look though, I think it's quite snazzy and I like the golden shimmers and the nose as well.
Hopefully, for the next Halloween look I'll have something more coherent together. This was still fun for practise though and that's why I wanted to show you guys. What are you going to be this year?
