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’.

CRY BABY 5

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

CRY BABY 6

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.

CRY BABY 4

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.

CRY BABYY 2

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?
