Hey, what’s up peeps?!
Halloween is coming up and people are preparing for the upcoming Halloween party or scary night at home. That’s why I wanted to share my Halloween makeup guide with you guys (or rather how-NOT-to-do-your-makeup-guide 😛 ) for those of you that are still planning to go to a party. For those that would rather stay home and watch scary movies, I put together a list of the top 5 scariest movies to watch on Halloween 🙂
Alright, so I always wanted to dress up as messed up as possible for Halloween. We all know that there’s always two kind of girls – the ones that like to be sexy or cute and the ones that like to be gross. Well, you can obviously see which category I belong to lol! I was supposed to look like some kind of possessed demon but instead I ended up looking like some kind of zombie with a decayed beard?! Uhm, what? – I can explain, I promise 😛
A couple of days ago, I went to buy all the things I needed for my big Halloween party on Friday night – fake blood, contact lenses, liquid latex etc. I really wanted to go all-in this year. After I bought the things, I was really excited and already planned out everything in my head and agreed with my friend Mille to get ready together. I got to her place just to find out that I’m an idiot. 😀
Let me walk you through my makeup fails and you’ll understand more, so here we go.
STEP 1: Foundation
The first thing you want to do is to add your foundation and set it with some powder afterwards. I could have used a lighter shade of foundation to look more pale but I didn’t really think that through 😛
STEP 2: The beard
Pad liquid latex on your face and put cotton wool on top of the latex. Afterwards, you can paste some more latex on the cotton to make it look gross.
The plan was to use liquid latex for the face and cotton wool to make an authentic-looking wound around my mouth. Howeveeeer, the liquid latex I bought was NOT for the face but for repairing plastic figures for board games 🙂 🙂 🙂 I almost pasted that toxic cream on my face?! Good thing, that I remembered to read the package description on the back of the bottle where it said: “rinse immediately when it comes in contact with skin” . I got suspicious after reading that and was thinking of a way to explain that to myself? 😀 Mille knew right away that it was probably a bad idea to put that on my face but I kept on trying to convince myself and her that it was what other people were using as well 😛 In the end, I got Mille to call the store I bought it from and ask if that what I bought could be used for the face and – surprise, surprise – it couldn’t! I was so annoyed, you guys, I thought I messed up my Halloween night. But luckily, we thought of a plan B! So, we went to a drug store last-minute to buy eye lash glue and use that to stick the cotton wool to my face. It’s obviously not the optimal solution, but I made it work somehow 😛
So learn from my mistakes and make sure you read the package description before you buy something you don’t know about 🙂
STEP 3: More foundation
Alright, I know this looks like some weird form of Santa Claus ok? But what was I supposed to do? I wasn’t ready to give up my Halloween night just yet 😛
After I finished adding the cotton to my face, I put some foundation on top of it to make it stick to my face.
STEP 5: Veins and bruises
Here I used eye shadow to add some bruises and veins on my face. There’s no right way to do this, just smudge some color on your face, it will do the job 😛
STEP 6: Fake blood
Next, I added fake blood all over my “beard” to make it look a little bit more realistic and a trace of bloody tears. Make sure you do this step above a sink or in the shower so you don’t mess up your furniture! Either way, this was the finished look for that evening.
Oopsy-#3: I also bought red contact lenses but – again – did not read the small print on the back of the package. I was supposed to put them into a salt water solution for 4 hours before the first use. Obviously, I did not do that, which meant that I couldn’t put them in my eyes. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I managed to scare some people on the way to the party. People were staring at me and I could tell that they didn’t know whether I had some kind of disease or I was dressed up for Halloween. So, I guess I was a little successful after all 😀

Until next time!
