Halloween Makeup: Comic Book

After already creating a very quick and badly photographed Comic Book look earlier this year, I couldn't wait to redo and perfect it for Boohoo's blog. The post contained some amazing bloggers and a makeup artist that I absolutely adore, Karla Powell. I decided to create a step by step guide that shows you exactly how to recreate that ever growing popular Comic Book look that is so easy to rock for Halloween. With this look you have lots of options in what kind of direction you want to go. You can go all out with pop art body paint, comic book dots and outlining your hair, or you could go the more simpler route of just outlining your features and around your face. I opted for a pretty easy but effective look which is very wearable for whatever Halloween occasion.

Products used/steps taken

  1. Start off with a fully prepped and primed face and apply your favourite foundation, here I am using Vanishing Cream Moisturiser, Younique Primer and Illamasqua Skinbase 2.
  2. Create over-arched and worried looking brows using black eyeliner. The Balm Eyeliner is perfect for this and use it to block fill your eyebrows.

Hi Impact Brows

I always find that trying to make my brows look natural always takes a lot more effort than just drawing them completely on. Simply because there's a lot of blending and fine brush strokes involved. To my surprise, the Hi Impact Brows palette has made it incredibly easy to achieve naturally enhanced brows, that still make a statement, in literally minutes. Described as a 'unique' palette that allows you to personalise your eyebrow colour to suit your every mood and hair colour, and I've definitely been blown away by it. The pigments are incredibly strong and can easily be mixed or blended down to suit just about everyone. I decided to go for a slightly red or 'cinnamon' brow, as it's difficult to have natural brows with severely dyed hair. The Hi Impact Brows palette contains Black, Chocolate Brown, Cinnamon Brown and blonde as well as a pretty handy eyebrow brush. The packaging it sleek and small enough to make it handbag friendly for top ups and also has a pretty long mirror which saves space also.

Halloween Makeup: Evil Mermaid

I know I'm definitely not alone when I say that I've always wanted to be a Mermaid. These mythical creatures absolutely fascinate me and every time I see a variation of their look recreated, it's always so unique and magical. I wasn't quite sure in the direction that I wanted to take, hence the different wigs and alterations between the looks. A Mermaid is a perfect different but glamorous way to rock Halloween as not much is needed except a long curly wig, scales, and a dignified mermaid costume. I decided to add some golden tears and grey contacts to create a slightly evil glare. I did think that my Marie Wig from Annabelle's Wigs would be perfect with this look, however, the red was a little overpowering. Instead I opted for the Morgan and Charlotte wigs which suited the look a lot better.
