The lovely people over at Dance Depot sent me some Halloween kits to get stuck into with a theme of theatre, so who better than Dracula!? Well, Bride of Dracula as I’m a lady and I couldn’t think of anything smart enough to name this look. One of my most reposted and loved Halloween looks is a vampire I created two years ago, and it now makes me cringe from wonky and uneven eyebrows, but people seem to love it still? I thought a way to get over this would be to combine my old vampire creation, with new products and technique, including blanking my eyebrows out and creating a textured look instead. I’m really happy with the end results so let me run you through it….
Using a Snazaroo Special Effects Kit I blanked out my eyebrows with layers of wax before apply foundation over the area and my eyelids. Next I used a black face paint from a Fun World Zombie Makeup Kit to map out the shape of my eyes and the red in the kit to fill in the middle. As these are quite affordable face paints, they do tend to shine a lot so I had to matte over everything with a MAC blusher and Black eyeshadow. Afterwards I used the black face paint and a sponge to create the texturised forehead, I didn’t want anything too strong to distract from the eyes.
Next I used the same black and red to create my ombre lips, added false lashes, extra black around my eyes and powdered, finished off my base makeup, contoured and added a dash of blush. After my face was done, I added the wax and created a wound on my neck, I didn’t want this to be the vocal point, but rather so people can see how I’ve been turned into a vampire and so that it looks rather sore underneath my hair.To finish off the look I added my Charlotte wig from Annabelle’s Wigs, red contact lenses (which I really should not recommend as these were not prescription friendly), a corset, bra, silk skirt and the most beautiful green cape. Quite a few well thought out accessories this time and when we had enough photos of a plain and non bloody face, we added blood! But only a drop, as I’m a rather clean and experienced blood sucker.
Thanks Dance Depot for the awesome makeup!
