{#FRIGHTFEMMES} 2018 - Vol. 3

It’s week THREE of #FrightFemmesFriday and I can’t believe how close we are getting to Halloween ••• For a little background on #FrightFemmes, A Halloween makeup & styling collab with Caro from Blonde2Brunette blog, check out the intro post about this series - flashback to 2015!

Catch up on the 2018 series by checking out VOL.1 post here and VOL.2 post here.

This week, Caro and I were both inspired to create fantastical & whimsy characters - UniQueen and Galactic. We both used neutral color palettes and focused on shading, highlighting, and of course the essential glitter/sparkle elements!

Keep scrolling through to see the looks!

GET THE LOOK:

  • Start off with your regular base/face makeup and brow routine.

  • For the gradient effect on the crescent moon, I cut out the shape from card stock paper and used double sided tape to stick it to my forehead. I also think a star shape would look really cool too! To make the look a little more interesting, I placed it so it would slightly “cut through” my eyebrows.

  • Next take a fluffy eyeshadow blending brush and start shading the edges of the paper shape, being really careful not to get too much shadow under the edges.

  • Keep adding colors to eventually fade out into a gradient towards your foundation shade. I went with a mix of purples, browns, and bronze tones… but this would also look great in the classic galaxy palette of black, purple, blue, and pink.

  • For the “mask” part of the look under the eyes, you can either do the same card stock paper method to create a really crisp line, or free hand it, which is what I did. The key here is to blend blend blend till your fingers give out. ;)

  • To create the stars, you can either use a white liquid liner, or white cream paint. Use a tiny brush tip (or even the back of a chopstick, toothpick, anything you have laying around!) to dot them on, varying clusters and sizes. Add a few cross marks here and there.

  • I completed the look by styling my hair in space buns, added fun accessories and wore a sparkly fabric for to mimic a starry night sky.
