First Halloween Look Of 2017 ft. Johnny Loves Rosie

Friday, October 13, 2017
Halloween is my favourite season, not just because of all the scary and creepy books, TV shows and films I can watch but because of the time of the year and makeup looks I get to create. Over the past couple of years I've created halloween looks on my blog and this year will be no different although I probably won't create quite as many this time around.

So far I've created a vampire witch, cheshire cat, mermaid, joker, skull, pop art, zombie, doll and corpse bride look so I wanted to create something a little different to those but still keep it easy to create and quick using widely available products.
This is my first halloween look of the year and I wanted to start with an easy but striking look featuring products from Johnny Loves Rosie. It was very easy to create this look as most of it is just my usual makeup routine with some halloween extras. Here's a list of the products that I used:

Too Faced Hangover Primer (review)
Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation (review)
Essence All About Matt Fixing Powder
Eye Of Horus Brow Pencil (review)
Eylure Brow Pencil (review)
TheBalm Schwing Liquid Liner
Glossier Stretch Concealer
NYX Taupe Blush
Crown Brushes Matte Lip Stain (review)
Ciate Wonderwand Mascara (review)
AHB Cosmetics Highlighter Palette (review)
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (review)

I also used the *Johnny Loves Rosie Skeleton Face Tattoo (£16) which I was kindly sent a couple of weeks ago - it's part of their halloween collection along with so many other great halloween accessories. The design came pre-laid out as to how you should use the stickers but I changed it up a bit and I'm really happy with the outcome!
Firstly, I started with my primer, foundation, concealer and powder as my base. I added more coverage than normal; I also used my new Glossier stretch concealer (which I'm really liking on my dry skin). Whenever I apply my makeup, I always use my contour products as my face would look like a beach ball without them and when halloween comes around, I can get away with a strong contour.

Next up, highlighter, powder and then the Johnny Loves Rosie skeleton face tattoo. Instead of using the red rhinestones around the eyes, I added most of them to my lips and as they were adhesive already, they didn't need glue. I cut up the mouth section and just added it to the sides of my mouth and I used the chin decoration too; the only items I didn't use were the eyebrow stickers.
After filling in my brows as I normally do, I applied the shades 'YDK', 'Chopper' and 'Foxy' to the lids and blended well as this is quite a neat look. I also added winged liner with TheBalms Schwing liquid liner which is so easy to use and applied my mascara.

I'm really happy with how it turned out, it was very easy to create and the stickers were easy to remove although for the stickers, not the rhinestones, I did have to glue them down with eyelash glue. I think it's a simple but striking halloween look that will go with so many costumes and you can just add the Johnny Loves Rosie skeleton face tattoo over the top of your work/school makeup.

Have you bought anything from Johnny Loves Rosie? What are you going as for halloween this year? Do you celebrate halloween?

  2. This is such a cute and simple look, I love it! The face tattoo is such a great idea for someone who doesn't want to have to faff around too much with a costume but still wants to dress up and it looks super easy to apply :)

  17. I love the rhinestones! I prefer more simple looks like this for Halloween because I'm rubbish at drawing so can't do all of that cool skull, etc. stuff xo
