Halloween: Doll Tutorial + Giveaway

Sunday, October 26, 2014
It is that time of year again, when I draw all over my face with eyeliner and it doesn't raise too many questions...I published a series of halloween posts last year (here) and they were so fun to create and everyone seemed to like them so I am doing the same this year. I have tried to create better looks, with better photographs and new designs/characters this year! I am obviously not a makeup artist, if I can create these halloween looks then most people can!

Products used:

Max Factor Luminizer Foundation (40 Light Ivory)
*W7 The Cheek Of It Blush (Baby Pink)
*Colorsport Rapid Lash-Gro Liner 
Barry M White Creme Foundation
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet (07 Nudist)
Avon Supershock Liner (Black)
Real Techniques Core Collection and Starter Set 

Firstly, I started with my base, I used the new (and amazing) Max Factor Luminizer foundation all over the skin which creates an even, radiant base. I then applied a lot of the W7 Blusher over the apples and back of my cheeks to create a pinky artificial doll face. I didn't contour as I wanted to create a more rounded face shape. Over the top of the blush I used the Avon liner to make little freckles on my cheeks. To add to the doll look, I used the Colorsport liner to draw on winged liner (try and make it as symmetrical as possible) and apply it along the lower lash line to give a wide eye look. White liner in the lower waterline would make this look even more doll like.

Now for the main focus of the look, the mouth! Draw out the top lip  line with the avon liner as a basic guide and take it down to the chin from both corners of the lips. Draw in the teeth and fill in - I used the Barry M foundation in white which wasn't the best to use, it would be far easier if you had a white pencil liner. Fill in the inner part of the mouth with black liner and make sure to fill in around the teeth. For the lips I applied the Bourjois lip stain and to finish off the look I sharpened up the black lines around the teeth/mouth with the Coloursport Liquid Liner. I would pair the look with a pink doll outfit or a black dress.

To finish off my first halloween tutorial post for 2014, I'm going to be giving away a advert space on my blog sidebar which will be live for THREE months!

  15. This Halloween I'm not really dressing up as anything or anyone, but I do plan to practice and try out some gross special effects makeup on myself!

    Love the look you did here! I'm terrible at painting like this because I'm not artistically neat, if that makes sense, haha. At first glance it looks super realistic!
