I love creating lots of different looks for Halloween and I wanted to do something more wearable for a party or event. This is my ‘Evil Geisha’ make-up!
HOW TO CREATE THIS LOOK:
- Prep the skin and make sure it is thoroughly moisturised other wise your white make up will go patchy.
- Apply your white base, I used Illamasqua’s Skin Base Foundation in 01 (pure white) because their foundations have a beautiful formula! I buffed it into my skin leaving a small gap on my forehead.
- Powder your base, I used a translucent powder but a white powder would be perfect to use as it would even out the colour.
- To contour, I used a deep pink on the cheek bones and gently buffed it in swirling to get a subtle colour.
- I then added a redder shade to the apples of my cheeks.
- To highlight, I took MUA’s Pearl eyeshadow in Shade 2 and swept it across my cheekbones, down the centre of my nose and on my upper lip.
- I slightly blocked my brows with glue stick but not much, just so they weren’t so noticeable.
- Using black eyeshadow and a round blending brush I swirled the brush in the inner corner of my eye and blended outwards and down my nose. To make this neater I used a small flat brush and edged down my nose with black eyeshadow.
- I then applied Illamasqua’s Pure Pigment in Berber (which is a STUNNING copper/red sparkle) across my whole lid and blended this out towards my temple.
- I lined my eyes with MAC’s Fluidline in Blacktrack however a glittery black liner would look beautiful! I made my liner super winged out towards my temple.
- I then added another ‘flick’ on my lower lashline down my cheek.
- Line your waterline with a black pencil and smudge slightly underneath.
- Add some long full false lashes to the bottom lash line.
- BROWS- create the shape of your brows using black lipstick/lipgloss. I wanted a higher pointed shape so drew this in.
- Using black glitter (I used Helen E’s Black Asteroid) dab this onto the lipstick/gloss, because its tacky it will hold the glitter in place.
- Line your lips with black gel liner, you want to create a rounded shape making your lips smaller and curl up slightly on the edges.
- Blend the black inwards.
- Using Barry M’s Lip Lacquer Crayon in Cherry Red which is a really nice sparkly red colour, apply to the lips and blend into black.
- Finally dab a small amount of Berber pure pigment on the centre of the lower lip.
Berber is SUCH a stunning colour!!!! In the light its so multi-dimensional I looooooove it!
Halloween is soon approaching! Any tutorials or looks people would like to see?
