Halloween Tutorial: Corpse Bride

Wednesday, October 29, 2014
I'm onto my fourth halloween look so far, I think this might be my second to last one! This look is inspired by the Tim Burton movie 'corpse bride', I adore Tim Burton films, I don't know why I haven't tried to create a Tim Burton character look before! This look was surprisingly quick and easy to create!

Products used: 

Barry M White Foundation 
FCUK Christmas Palette 
Essence Lipstick (12 Blush My Lips)
Essence Liquid Ink (Black, Waterproof)
Yves Rocher Sexy Plump Mascara
Mac Foundation Sponge 
*Makeup Revoltion Give Them Nightmares Salvation Palette
Real Techniques Starter Set 

Check out pinterest for inspiration photos, I tried to create a look closest to the film character. I started by mixing a crumbled blue eyeshadow from a FCUK palette with the Barry M white foundation to make a blue foundation! I then used a darker blue shade from the Makeup Revolution Give Them Nightmares Salvation Palette on a large eyeshadow brush to contour my cheeks, jaw, nose and along my forehead/temples. I then deepened the navy shade in the inner corner of my eyes and up to my brows. Make the brows and brow bone as dark as possible but keep it navy/blue not black. Blended a combination of a medium blue and navy under the eyes, the outer corners and lower lip. Using a blue shadow as a guide I drew on thin quirky brows then filled in lightly with the a black liquid liner. 

Using the same liquid liner I drew on big lower lashes and two holes/cracks on my face, like the film character. I then applied mascara and then a bright pink matte lip. Finish off the face with a mix of different shades of blue around the edges of the face and eyes as the character is supposed to be dead so the skin would be different shades. Also to stop the skin looking flat, I used a creamy shimmery shade as a cheekbone and cupids bow highlight. 

What do you think of my corpse bride look? Are you dressing up as a Tim Burton character for halloween?
