This is definitely one of my favourite looks yet! And also my first time using liquid latex too! Let’s get right into it!
For my face I used the Revlon Colorstay foundation and Collection concealer. I set that with the NYX HD Finishing Powder and used the NYX Tame & Fame for my eyebrows. For my eyes I used more sellotape for the wing and I started with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette and used red ochre all over my eyes. Then to deepen my crease I used the dark red in the Morphe 35n palette. I then deepened it further with a little bit of black.
I used the NYX liquid liner to line the top of my eyes and then apply the SOSU lashes in Milan. Then I used the Makeup Revolution contour kit, bronzer in Ready to Go and also the baked highlight in Golden Lights for my face. And finally I finished that off with the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip colour in Pitch Black. It’s a good black liquid lipstick but it’s quite drying and because it’s so dark it’s quite patchy.
And now to start off with the gruesome bit! I used the Mehron liquid latex to draw a line across my neck where I wanted the cut to be. I applied some of the latex and then put some tissue over the top and then some latex over the top of that. I repeated this about 5 times and in between I used a hair dryer to dry it. Once all of the layers were completely dry I covered the latex in my Revlon foundation and then used a pair of nail scissors to make a little cut on one side. Then I carried on cutting the scissors horizontally to make the cut. Just be extra careful that you don’t cut yourself though! You should be able to see your skin where the cut is. Then I used a Primark face paint pen in red and coloured my skin in, inside the cut.
I then dabbed some purple and red eyeshadows around the opening of the cut to make it a bit bruised and irritated. I used this all around the outside of the cut and a bit in the middle too. Then I deepened the inside of the wound with some black eyeshadow and face paint. And now for the gory bit. I bought some fake blood from Tescos and also a sponge that has huge holes in so I could create a splattered effect. I dabbed the blood all around the cut and painted a bit on the inside too. Then I used the bottle and squeezed some of it out to create the drops falling from my neck.It was very hit and miss because some worked and others didn’t so you have to play around with it for a bit until you get the hang of it. And finally I used a bit of black paint inside the blood droplets too to add a bit more texture.
And that’s the look finished! I love how realistic this looks and it didn’t take long to do at all! To get the cut off you just slowly peel it off your skin, but be careful because it takes any little hairs off with it! And for the blood I found that face wipes don’t get it off so you’ll need a good makeup remover, or I use micellar water and it works a dream!
I hope you like this look, it’s been one of my favourite ones so far and I can’t wait to play with more liquid latex in the future.
