I am so excited to finally show off this fun & exciting collaboration with my blogger babe Maryam Ishtiaq from Pizza and Perrier. Neither of us have ever attempted Halloween makeup, but when our girl crush Desi Perkins posted a tutorial on the melting skull, we had to at least try it. It’s an inexpensive costume that is relatively easy and perfect for throwing together something cool at the last minute! Check out my Instagram for more.
HOW – TO
- We started doing the glam on half of the face first, creating the hallows using a liquid liner pen and shading out the top part. The key is to have the top part of your hallow the darkest and fade it downwards.
- Next, we took Crayola black paint & shadow to create the nose and moved onto giving ourselves the black eye (be careful doing this, as eyes are sensitive). Start with layering Maybelline black eyeliner, gel liner & then paint. Set with Urban Decay/Colourpop black shadow – we used both.
- Afterwards, we used a NYX white eyeliner to outline the areas for the skull. Then, taking a paint brush + Crayola white paint, we started filling in the other side of our faces.
- We painted over our lips using the NYX white liner, paint, and added in the details with gel liner from Maybelline using a detailer eyeliner brush.
- Last step! We placed the Mehron 3D gel in fleshtone (bought from Amazon) in a cup of hot water and let sit for 2-3 mins. Be careful when placing this on your face. Make sure it’s not too hot – it cannot be too cold either, otherwise the drips won’t fall naturally. Over a sink, we did not squeeze the bottle, but simply guided it in the areas we wanted our face to be melted and let the bottle drip by itself (sometimes the gel would harden again, so we would place the bottle back in the warm water and repeat).
RASMIN – THE LIPSTICK PANTRY
My glam side was done with the following products:
Foundation – NARS Sheer Glow in Stromboli
Concealer – Anastasia Beverly Hills highlight stick in Banana
Highlight – Dripping in Gold from That Glow Kit (ABH)
Eyes – Modern Renaissance Palette (ABH). I used Burnt Orange, Cyprus Umbar, and Venetian Red in the crease, blending each out. I finished the cut crease off with black market shadow from Urban Decay Smokey palette
Brows – Dipbrow Pomade (Ebony) – ABH
Mascara & Eyeliner – Maybelline Spide Effect / Liquid & Gel liner were used
Shading – To add more depth to the skin melting, I blended in Venetian Red and Red Ochre from the Modern Renaissance Palette. Be sure to blend it into the white paint so it creates a gradient.
I paired black H&M jeans and a black tee with a biker leather jacket from Armani and Guess boots. To add some more edge/glam, I added a gold/silver necklace.
