It’s September babies, which can only mean one thing really- autumn is beginning and Halloween is upon us! I’ll try not to go too mad with all the spooky vibes this month, but I have organised a make up look each Friday of the month to give a little taster of what is to come this Blogtober.
Shop the look:
This week I drew inspiration from both Johnny Depp’s iconic movie Cry Baby, and some super cute tear looks I’ve been seeing on Pinterest and I’ve called this one ‘Cry Babe’.
This one is really good if you’re looking for something fairly easy, and perhaps a little unique!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
– Your normal face products: primer, concealer, foundation, powder- whatever floats your boat!
– A blue liquid eyeliner, or liquid lipstick
– A black liquid liner
– Pink eyeshadow
– A white eyeliner
– False lashes
The first thing I did was complete my normal face routine, before filling in my brows- the emphasis is all on eyes- we don’t want any other distractions! I then added pink eyeshadow to my lids, taking it up to about half way between my crease and my brows, in an arc shape.
Now taking my blue liquid liner, I made small, squiggly lines underneath my eyes- these would be the rough areas to create little pools of tears.
Underneath the pools, attach your tears of varying shapes and sizes, again drawing with your blue liner- it’s a lot easier than with a black liner! Once you’re happy with your shapes, overline the areas with your black liquid liner, wait to dry and apply a cat eye to the top of your lids too.
Fill in those shapes with your blue liner, before adding in patches of the white to simulate reflections.
I created further interest on the eyelids by dotting with the blue liner, then I applied my falsies.
Tidy it all up by going over everything with the liquid liner again- as you can see above I touched my face and rubbed a part of a tear off! Then complete with setting spray and you’re done!
Add a wig and false nails for extra fun!
Will you be creating this kind of look for Halloween, or something a little more classic?
