31 Days of Halloween 2017, Make-up

Better The Devil You Know (25/31)


I absolutely love this look! One of my favourites I’ve created so far! It’s a bit creepy but also incredibly cool at the same time, perfect for a night out. Let’s get started with the horns!

For my horns I used FIMO which is a clay that you can mould. Once you’ve moulded it into the shape you want you just put them in the oven for 30 minutes on 130 degrees and they come out hard. Such a good idea and I saw this after a few failed attempts of making horns out of cardboard and paper. They’re not really heavy either which makes them good when they’re sticking on your head. So I applied these to my forehead using liquid latex and held them until it had dried. I then put a layer of liquid latex around the base of the horns and covered it in a thin layer of tissue. I repeated this all the way round only twice because I didn’t want the bases to be massive. They stuck down really well but if I was going on a day/night out with them on I would probably do a few more layers to make them sturdier.


Then I started on my face. I used mostly the same products as normal, the Revlon foundation, a mixture of Estee Lauder concealer for blemishes and Collection Concealer for under my eyes. I then used the NYX HD setting powder. For my brows I used a thin brush and black eyeshadow because I wanted them to be dark. Instead of drawing them rounded over the top though I drew them to a point which I actually used to do to my brows when I was younger, just not to this extreme!


For my eyes I used the Morphe 35c palette. I started with the white all over my eyes and then went in with the black all over that, using sellotape to create the wing. Then I cut my crease with the Collection concealer and applied the bright red from the same palette. And over that I used NYX Multitasker with a thin brush so I could apply the glitter over the top. I love this product, which is originally used for mixing pigments, because it dries and the glitter doesn’t go everywhere.

Then I lined the top of my lashes with NYX black liquid liner and applied the SOSU lashes in Holly. I used the same bright red under my eyes and lined my waterline with black liner. Then I just applied a layer of mascara and that’s the eyes done.


For my face I used the Makeup Revolution contour kit firstly to contour my forehead and cheeks. Then I went over my cheeks with a grey eyeshadow, just very lightly. For my highlighter I used my favourite silver highlighter from the Makeup Revolution Ultra Cool Glow palette. I used it on my cheeks, under my brows, my inner corner, nose and cupid’s bow.


And finally for my lips I applied the NYX Liquid Suede in Cherry Skies and then the multitasker and glitter again. This is a perfect combination if you want glitter lips!


And lastly for my horns I used a mixture of red and purple eyeshadows to make the base look a bit more irritated (I’d already put foundation on them when I did my whole face). Then I put a bit of fake blood around the base too. Luckily I bought the Fimo in red so I didn’t need to paint the whole horns but I just smudged some black face paint on some parts of them and painted the tips in completely black. I also put a little bit of black glitter on the ends but you can’t see it much. I think it would’ve looked cool if the whole horn was glittery but I didn’t think of that until afterwards!

I hope you like this look, I didn’t want to take it off! Would definitely wear it on a night out!
