I’ve been super busy with school etc. but I had to make at least one Halloween blog post. After all, Halloween is my second favorite holiday after Christmas!
I need sunlight when I take pictures and the Finnish autumn is quite dark. I rushed home from school (sun goes down FAST) and started immediately but the sun had a mind of its own so I’m sorry for the variance of the lighting in the pictures.
I LOOOOVE Halloween so much and it sucks that we don’t really celebrate it here in Finland… I noticed that the Halloween make up accessories (fake wounds, fake blood etc…) are quite expensive, so I decided to write this. I think it counts as a “last minute costume” as well, because I’m sure you have all that you’ll need already.
You will need:
– fake eyelash glue
– red lipstick
– Brown, black and purple matte eye shadow
– Cream textured foundation/concealer
Start by applying the glue the same way I did in the first picture. The point is to leave a clean spot in the middle for the wound.
Then tear a piece of one of the layers of the tissue and glue it on. Make sure that the edges of the paper are glued on smoothly. I added another layer of the tissue on top of the first one but it’s not necessary.
Wait for the glue to dry and then start covering the tissue with foundation or concealer. Try to find a cream textured one because liquid ones will make the tissue wrinkle.
After covering the whole tissue with the foundation/concealer start tapping brown and purple matte eye shadow on.
This is the fun part; cutting the wound! You’ll need scissors like the ones in the picture above to prevent hurting yourself (round tips).
(I’M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU HAPPEN TO CUT YOURSELF!!)
This is why we didn’t add any glue in the middle. Carefully poke a hole in the paper with the tip of your scissors and then just continue cutting the tissue paper. (Seriously though, be super careful!)
Then colour the inside of the wound with a red lipstick. To give depth add brown and black matte eye shadow as well.
This is something I discovered myself today; FAKE BLOOD MADE WITH HONEY AND LIPSTICK! Yes, honey. How awesome is that?! (P.s. it tasted bad.) Just blend those two together and that’s it.
And there we go!
