31 Days of Halloween 2019, Make-up

What Lies Beneath (9/31)


(All photos taken and edited by me. Hair, eyes and background are edited).

One of the first skulls I’ve painted for this years Halloween! This is inspired by the lovely Fancy Flutie on Instagram! Her work is crazy good!

Let’s get started!

I first started with white face paint to draw the outline of everything on my face and chest. I then blocked out the one eyebrow using Pritt Stick. For the normal part of my face I used a mixture of Fenty foundation and the Nyx Stay Matte Not Flat foundation to match my tan. I then used the Collection concealer under my eye to highlight. I used the Makeup Revolution eyebrow palette on my brow too. I used the P.Louise eyeshadow base and then used the mint shade from the Morphe 35c palette to blend up towards my eyebrow. In my crease I used the deeper teal shade from the same palette to deepen the crease.

I then cut the crease with the P.Louise base and applied a silver from the Lick and Lash 35k palette over the top. I also used the teal shade under my eye too. I applied Nyx liquid liner and applied the Nessychoice 06 lashes. I used some Makeup Revolution bronzer and the green highlighter from the Makeup Revolution Cool Glo palette in the corner of my eye.


To get this green shade I mixed together the grass green and turquoise Snazaroo paints I have which created this almost mint green. I used this first to colour in all of the bones and the skull part of my face. I then went around the whole outline of everything with black Snazaroo face paint. I filled in the eye hole, nose hole and cheek hole with black too. I then painted my teeth with white face paint.

I used black eyehshadow to shade where the cracks are to create some depth and to make the bones look a bit more 3D. I also added some little lines on the face for the skull and outlined the teeth with black face paint. I also used some dark green eyeshadow to add more depth to some areas. I used the white facepaint to add highlights, on the bones and on my cheekbone and browbone. I also used a little bit of the green highlighter on a few of the bones and on my cheekbone.

And that’s the look finished! I was really happy with how this turned out and don’t forget to check out the inspiration Fancy Flutie!
