Melting Skull – 19 October 2016

More photos of this look can be found in the gallery located on the home page.

I’m super pleased with how this turned out. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to pull this look off because it seemed so complicated and there were a lot of moving parts. For a beginner with fairly limited products at her disposal, I would say I did a damn good job. I started with a fresh face and did natural/glam make-up on one side of my face with a very exaggerated wing and dark, heavy colors for my eyeshadow. For this look, you can completely skip contouring on your cheek, but I would recommend still contouring the forehead and the nose to make your face appear more angular. I also decided to do a very pronounced brow on one side because I felt like it would exaggerate my features more. For the other side of my face, I covered it with the white cream from Wal-Mart and dragged the color down over my lips, to the bottom of my chin. I did some contouring with black on my cheek, my nose, and my forehead on the skeleton side. Be careful when you do the contouring here because the white cream makes the black very pronounced; take your time and blend, blend, blend! Using a black eyeliner pencil, I made the black lines on the natural side of my face and covered it in with a black swatch from the Halloween pack and a make-up sponge. I did the same for my eye, being careful around the waterline of my eye. I brought my natural eyebrow into the black circle. For the lines on my mouth, I used a liquid liner and, very careful, created straight lines from one edge of my mouth to the other edge. Finally, I finished by dripping liquid foundation to create that melting-skin look and some setting spray.

Good luck,
