Grudge Halloween Makeup9:04 PM
A photographer wanted to do a Grudge-inspired shoot and so I decided to come up with a makeup look for it. Halloween is coming up, so I thought it would be appropriate to post up the quick tutorial for the look.
-MAC fluidline in blacktrack
-Foundation or powder 2 shades lighter than your skin
-NYX lipsticks in Rea and Eros
First, start with a foundation/powder color that is about two shades lighter than your skintone. The goal is to look very even-toned and pale. Next, apply bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks. Then shade in your eyebrows a dark color.
After priming your lids, take a cream liner or color base in black in a thick line along your lash line. Also line your bottom lash line.
Next, use a looser eyeshadow brush to apply the black shadow in a gradient from the lashline to the brow. This should be applied with a gritty look. It doesn't need to be smooth and perfect, but try to keep it a consistent gradient. I also added a couple coats of black mascara to un-curled (straight) lashes.
Use the same shadow process to apply eyeshadow along the entire bottom lash line from the tear duct to the outer corners.
For the lips take a pale, flesh-toned lipstick and apply it to the outer rims around your lips. I used NYX round lipstick in Rea. Then, apply a bright red lipstick to the inner third of your lips. I used NYX round lipstick in Eros. Blend the two lipsticks together. The effect is very eye-catching in person and has a bit more punch than just plain nude lips.
Speaking of which, let me know what you're planning on being for Halloween! I was Snow White last year and I should dig up those pics and share the makeup look. So much fun!
