31 Days of Halloween 2019, Make-up

Medusa (28/31)

This was the last look I created for 31 Days of Halloween and it was very bittersweet! I’d had this idea for a while and wasn’t sure how to pull it off but I was really happy with how it turned out!

I started with the Fenty foundation mixed with some of the Nyx foundation to make it a bit darker. For my brows I used the Benefit, Precisely My Brow pencil to fill them in lightly. I used the P.Louise base and then used a black eyeshadow from the Morphe 35c palette to blend out. On my lid I used a shade from the Lick and Lash 35k palette that was a black mixed with gold. I applied the Nessychoice lases and a little mascara. I also used black eyeshadow underneath my eye and lined my eyes with the Nyx black pencil liner.


For the snake pattern I pulled some fishnet tights over my head and used black eyeshadow with gold over the top to create the scales. I then used black face paint to paint on my lips and paint my neck and chest messily. I applied the gold eyeshadow over my lips too. I then used vaseline to stick some gold glitter to my chest.

For the snakes I bought some cheap black ones from eBay and painted them with gold paint. To stick them to my body I used liquid latex which did the job for pictures but in future I’d probably use spirit gum or something stronger because they did keep pinging off!


And that’s the look finished! I was super pleased with how this turned out and I hope you like it! Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s makeup look – Mermaid (27/31)

Stay Spooky!
