Hey guys! I have been seeing so many different halloween makeup tutorials and pictures lately so I wanted to get into that mood as well. I wanted to start out with a pretty simple and easy halloween tutorial so I stared off with a smokey red clown look. The full tutorial will be up on my youtube channel Saturday. I hope you enjoy it!
All Brushes used are BH Cosmetics, check out my favorites here.
I started off by using Makeup Forever Liquid Foundation in the lightest shade to even out my skin and create a white base.
I then dipped into my deep red lipstick with a flat pencil brush and applied this in a large clump under by eyes as well as all over the lid.
After applying the lipstick all over like I wanted I went in with a fluffy, large, blending brush and smoked out all of the red.
In order to deepen up the red color I went in with the shade Bitter (a reddish brown) from my Urban Decay Vice 4 palette. I applied and blended this out closer to the eye with the same blending brush I used before. This helped to create depth in the look and add to the creepiness of it.
I also ended up going in with a bright red from the BH Cosmetics Take Me to Brazil Palette on a compact pencil brush. this was just applied in the crease and very close to the lower lash line. I think stopping here would be a great look for a zombie costume or something along those lines.
I went in with the same compact pencil brush and the black from the Take Me to Brazil palette. This was put on my entire top lid and the lower lash line. Then blended out with the same blending brush I have been using.
Next I grabbed by Inglot cream eye liner and a detailed eyeliner brush. I started to make a V shape with the eyeliner under my eyes.
After doing that and filling it in with solid black I did the same right above my brows. I did end up bringing the black into my brows as well just to make the look cleaner.
With the same brush and liner I added black dots at the points of the triangles both above and below my eyes.
Then it was time to move onto the mouth! I went in with the flat pencil brush first and the red lipstick. I then went over that color with the shade Bitter from the UD palette and the bright red from the BHC palette. I then smoked and blended this out with the same fluffy blending brush from before.
I went back in with the detailed brush and the black cream eyeliner and drew out a creepy kind of smile and then filled it in.
After that I went back in and put X marks on each side of my mouth just because I thought it added a little more to the look.
Well that was the entire look, pretty simple huh? I think that for those who want to do some halloween makeup but not go too crazy or only have limited time and resources this is a great option. If you wanted to do a color besides red that is very easy to do as well and it could create a whole new concept! If you try this out let me know, I would love to see it! I will link the video in this post once it is up Saturday! Hope your day goes great lovies!!
