HALLOWEEN | Here Comes the Bride of Frankenstein!

Happy Halloween everyone! I honestly was not planning on doing any Halloween makeup as I have been rushing to share all of my Fall beauty posts with you before December descends, but I was determined to do something with the MAKE UP FOR EVER Flash Palette that I was given last year by MUFE as a prize for participating in their Halloween campaign. This palette is a rainbow of grease paints that can literally turn you into anything you wish to be and this year, I wished to be the "Bride of Frankenstein"!

As I have mentioned before, I'm really terrible at makeup. I have dexterity only for nails, but unfortunately not for my face and I'm ok with that so I went hunting for a look that didn't require a whole lot of precision, BUT would still have a bit of a WOW factor. Painting your entire face a bright colour accomplishes like 75% of that! I have never used grease paint and I really had issues making it even. It was patchy in some areas and after trying to fix it for 20 minutes, I had to move on. I had also applied it to my ears because my body parts had to match and let me tell ya, I still had some green in my ears the next day at work despite scrubbing!

Shade: Leaf Green

MAKE UP FOR EVER Flash Color Cream Palette in Artistic
Shade: Black

Apply primer all over the lid and under eyes.
Using fingers and patting motion, apply the purple shade "2am" by Sugarpill all over the lid and roughly under the eyes. I wasn't neat about it since this was a bit of a messy look.
Line lower waterline with a black smudgeable liner. I used Charlotte Tilbury's Rock n Kohl Iconic Eye Pencil in Bedroom Black*.

Thickly line upper lash line and create a wing with Kat Von D Liquid Eyeliner in Trooper.

Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes. I'm using MAKE UP FOR EVER's Excessive Lash Mascara*.

Apply false lashes. I am using Eden Lashes in Sarai*.

Once your face is done, add some random stitches all over your face using the black grease paint from the MUFE Flash Palette and a small makeup brush. I added some black shadows with matte black eyeshadow in between the stitches to give some realism. Make sure to do this in a patting motion as I discovered why it is VERY difficult to mix mediums like cream and powder! I had to touch up the green a few times because I was "brushing" instead of dabbing.

If you plan on going out, spray your face with setting spray to lock everything in place! I realized I couldn't use setting powder (unless you can and I just didn't realize??) because I was so lost with using this Flash Palette being the amateur that I am. I will say that this is a FUN palette to play with though and I cannot imagine how much fun a MUA would have with something like this!

I hope everyone is having a great Halloween and I will show you how I managed to take all of this off in my next post ;-)
