Halloween tutorial: Illamasqueyes

This is the look #3 from Illamasqua's Halloween facecharts:


Again I started with mixing some white to my foundation to create pale face:

Then I started to shape the eyeshadows by using a thin brush and black gel liner (pencil will do fine too):

When I had the desired shape, I applied matte black shadow to whole lid:

Then I applied Illamasqua's Bedaub Cream Pigment above the black shape (you can also use any light green cream product, or just white to make the color pop):

Over the cream pigment I applied Sugarpill's Midori shadow:

Then more Sugarpill, After party to the lower outer corner, below the black wing:

Then some black, make quite heavy line to your lower lashline with black, also make a wing to the inner corner too:

And add Sugarpill Afterparty below the inner wing too:

Looks quite scary :D

Then line your waterline with black:

Apply mascara, and false lashes to the lower lashline (mine are Faux Black Sparkle) (I also used falsies to the upper lashline, brandless cheap lashes):

Still scary!

Then I used lash glue to attach large black rhinestones:

And to make it a bit less scary looking, I added myself eyebrows with blue eyeliner:

I finishes the look with Illamasqua Disciple lipstick and a hint of Illamasqua liquid metal Surge on the lips:

Halloween tutorial: Pink Tears


On my facebook page I asked which of Illamasqua Halloween facechart looks I should create:

Most votes went to look #3 (it's ready and done, but I'll post this one first), but in second place came look #4:


I was asked to do to the look in pink color instead of blood red, and so I did :D
Here's how to do it:

Start with lighter foundation, if you want. I again mixed some white Grimas grease paint with my foundation:

Then the eyes.
Prime your lid and apply white shadow to your lid and highlight (ignore my ugly bushy brows :D):

Then use grey shadow to shape the lid. Best is to use both lighter and darker gray to create depth:

Next I used some glitter from Eye Kandy cosmetics (Marshmellow Sugar & Confetti) all over the lid:

Then I added some gray to my lower lashline also:

Then the colored brows.
You can use lip pencil, eyeliner, eyeshadow, what ever you wish to create red/pink brows. I used red and pink from MUFE Flash palette:

Then the winged black liner.
Again you can use pencil, gel liner or liquid liner to create a quite massive wing:

Next the white liner above the black one, good white liners are Illamasqua's Scribe and Lime Crime's Lunar Sea:

Then the tears.
There's easy way (non-3D) or a bit harder way (3D).

You can just draw then with pink/red pencil/liner/shadow/whatever, or you can use pink/red lipgloss to create them, or you can do them the extremely hard way like I did :D :

First you draw the tears with the way you prefer, then apply lash glue (or liquid latex/ 3D gel or similar) over the "tears". Let it dry so it's clear. You can also try to mix some color to glue/latex/gel, so you don't need to draw the tears first:

I decided to add some lipgloss (Illamasqua Petulant) over the dried glue to really enhance the effect (warning, lipgloss is quite messy, so you need to be careful that you don't smudge it):

Then I used the same lipgloss on my lips:

Finally I added a wig, and the look was done:
