Easy #Halloween Makeup #2 - Creepy Dead Girl

Yes, I couldn't think of anything particularly smooth to call this look. 

Soz for the insanely lame title. Like, I don't really know what this look even is, to be honest. It's just another way to wear fake blood, I guess. And your eyes wouldn't be bleeding like that if you were alive. And it's creepy & I'm a girl. Boom

And on that disasterous opening note.... Hello and welcome to my second easy Halloween Makeup look post. I'm no mua [by any stretch of the imagination] so if you like the look of any of the makeup styles in this lead up to Halloween series; it's a guarantee you'll be able to do them too. All most of them really need is a bit of eyeliner, and BOOSH; you've got yourself a costume. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog over the next few days too - I've bashed together quite a few easy makeup looks pre-Halloween to [hopefully] inspire you [or failing that, just make you laugh at how sh*t they are.] Details of any accessories used in this series of posts can be found here, in case you're interested, too.

Easy #Halloween Makeup #2 - Creepy Dead Girl

I never normally do particularly gruesome looks for Halloween; I'm really squeamish and would probably vom at the sight of myself. Today's look is probably as far as I'd go with fake blood - 1] because I'm a massive chicken and 2] because that sh*t STAINS your skin like there's no tomorrow. But anyway, here's a bloody, dead, corpse-y kinda look I bashed together for #HalloweenSixteen. It's proper easy to achieve and you don't need any special tools or SFX makeup to create this look - just your regular makeup collection and some fake blood.

I was quite impressed with how this turned out, truth be told. I put on my usual foundation and setting powder first, then applied white, shimmery highlighter (from Technic Cosmetics) all over my face. I contoured my nose, chin and cheek bones with some black shimmery Morphe eyeshadow and blended. Next, I used a mix of red and blue eyeshadow on my eyelids and crease to give my eyes a dead, sunken kinda look; before attacking with lots of black eyeliner, mascara and LashUnlimited falsies in #9. 

I have Mac Diva on my lips. For the blood under my eyes, I first outlined the trickles with black eyeliner, before colouring in the shape I created under each with a small makeup brush and a red eyeshadow. This acted as a base for the imminent attack of fake blood; to minimise its staining power on my skin. I then applied some of the Smiffys fake blood spray I had left over from last year, using a small makeup brush [an old one that I could throw away after using.] Taking this brush, I began dabbing it on to build a crusty, thick and textured look. And then indulged in about a million spooky selfies.

What do you think of this look? Easy yet effective, right? What are you going as for Halloween this year? Got any parties on the cards?

Keep your eyes peeled on the blog this week for other Halloween posts going live daily. Featuring lots more awkward selfies and crappy makeup attempts, obv [#winning.]
