Death by Dinglehopper: My Halloween Makeup Look

 

Today I have some exciting news! Yes, a special Halloween post. Since Halloween is this Saturday, I wanted to bring a Halloween makeup post to the blog including product information & details! We all know creating an original Halloween look can take up some time and effort, so that's why I called over my handy dandy blog photographer, Danielle! Believe it or not, Danielle has this hidden talent for creating amazing theatrical makeup (Halloween is definitely her holiday). So, we put together this Little Mermaid inspired pop art look with an edge. We had SO much fun creating this look, I hope you enjoy! See below for all further details on how to get this look.

Danielle & I had this idea to give Little Mermaid a twist and stick her "dinglehopper" in the neck area (to give it a creepier effect). This makeup look is a little time consuming (2-3 hours) due to the details, but it's well worth it! We started by outlining the scales on the face with a simple fish net stocking. By painting over the stocking and blending colors together, the ending result comes out as above. The trick to this whole look is blending out the colors well with a beauty blender sponge. My favorite aspect of all the  products used for this look is that they don't crease on the face! That's why taking time to blend everything well is crucial. As for the wounds we created on each side of the neck, we took some fresh scab and applied 2 pieces on each side & molded it with tweezers. After applying the scab, its best to contour around it to give it that bruised effect. Dripping the blood on each of the wounds was the messiest part, but the fake blood dries within 5 minutes and doesn't stain!
 
I really hoped you enjoyed this Halloween inspired makeup post, and major props to the talented Danielle for being a part of this. Have a safe & fun Halloween!
 
 
Until next post, Xo.
