I love Sally from A Nightmare Before Christmas but I’ve never had the guts to actually try it before because it’s such a big paint job! But this year I wanted to give it a go and I’m actually happy with how it ended up!
First I used the turquoise Snazaroo face paint to paint my face and my chest in. I filled my brows in lightly with a grey eyeshadow. For my eyeshadow I used the blue shade from the Nyx Ultimate Brights palette and blended up towards my brows. I then used the shade Yejide from the Juvias Place Magic palette in my crease to deepen it and blended it out. To make my crease even darker I used the shade Ife from the same palette. I then cut my crease with the P.Louise base and put on the shade Yemoja from the same palette over the top. I used the blue shade from the Nyx palette under my eyes too.
I then used some grey eyeshadow to draw where I wanted the stitches to be on her face and went over that with black face paint. For my lips I used the Tokidoki sweety lip matte in rock red. For my highlighter I used the silver shade from the Makeup Revolution ultra cool glow palette.
For the pink side of her clothes I mixed red and white together until I was happy with the shade. I then used the Snazaroo Bright Yellow face paint for the other half of the chest and one sleeve. And I used the Snazaroo Royal Blue face paint for the other sleeve. For the pink section I used the shade Kogi from the Juvias Place Magic palette to shade around the outside of the section to make it look more like clothes. I did it on the yellow sections too with the shade Nana from the same palette. For the blue skin I used a mixture of blues from the Morphe 35c palette for shadows.
I then used the Snazaroo black face paint to outline all of the lines and draw lines down one sleeve. This was so hard! I had to get someone to help me out! And I used black eyeshadow to draw the swirly lines on the pink section for her clothes.
And finally as an added extra I painted my hand with the turquoise Snazaroo face paint too and added some stitches with the black face paint.
I’m so happy with how this has turned out and it’s definitely one of my favourites from this Halloween! I hope you guys like it too and don’t forget to check out yesterday’s look – Jackie Skellington (14/31)
