Halloween 2016

By now it’s December, so I’m running way behind on posting this. But, those of you who follow my other social media like instarainbow, are able to see all the snaps I take with a phone πŸ™‚

Halloween started early this year! I was planning with our party hostess in the beginning of September, I think.. She told me the theme ideas she had, and it became an ‘Enchanted Forest’. It’s a beautiful theme, very broad, you can do basically anything fantasy, I really enjoyed it! πŸ˜€

It was also very early in the season that I settled on a general idea of what I would want to do with this theme. This year we really wanted to succeed on having a squad of people that actually kept their costume in line with the theme and we did! But I wanted something that would be better than last year.
I woke up in the middle of the night and started sketching, so the sketch below in the album is that original idea. Once it was set on paper I was focused on finding out details on how to accomplish things, Β the hair structure for example. But this was the plan from the beginning and I didn’t wander astray!

So what is it that I am? I was inspired by the ‘children of the forest’ from the Game of Thrones TV show. I wanted something like that, but with wings, elf ears, and a less I-was-literally-attached-to-a-tree kind of look. More of a magical look. A tad more fancy. But on the other hand, I didn’t want to be a fairy, I was going to be an evil, depressed version when it came to costume. I did obviously have a party and smiled and whatever, but the costume was intended as Evil Fairy.
Conclusion: I was a Forest Child, along with the rest of the girls πŸ™‚

My friends and boyfriend are also shown in the album. The girls were dressed as a Fawn, another Forest Child That Walked Out Of The Forest With Moss, there’s my friend I did makeup for who’s sort of my Evil Fairy Sister, and my boyfriend was Robin Hood with scratches that I made.

The day itself was so much fun. My entire hair/makeup took over 6 hours. I love this. This is commitment!
And there was my friend, who was able to help out a little with painting my back, we had a really lovely day, then we all did makeup together at my house and we had pizza, and it was a really good day πŸ™‚ Then we went to the party and I was tired AF because I’d been up since early and just exhausted from the whole day haha!

But it was a good Halloween year. This is what I live for.

For the occasion, I had dyed my hair (!!) with a colouring shampoo. It’s not permanent, it washes out after three washes or so. It was fine! My hair is not damaged and it’s back to normal now πŸ™‚ Hairstyle: Sansa Stark.

I used scarwax to create a broader bridge of the nose and a strong browline. These edges were not blended perfectly like the professionals do it, but for me, this was my best attempt so far. Gotta start somewhere. Oh, and I created gills on my arms. I don’t really know why, I wasn’t a fish. It just was cool and went with the look.

Paint: Mehron, obviously. Yes, I was wearing contacts. I also used some powder products, most of those would have been Sugarpill, Sleek or BHcosmetics.

Costume: The top was a simple top that I shredded. The skirt was made by myself. The wings were made from scratch by myself using wire and kitchen wrap (iron it so it melts) and everything with leaves is also just crafted with leaves that I got at some shop.

If I missed anything, if you have any questions, let me know! Enjoy!

Halloween 2015: the party guests makeup

Today I’d like to show you some of the photos that were taken during the party last weekend! These are photos of most of the people I painted, either in progress or as a result. Some people also added more paint, more blood, more whatever, because everyone was supercreative and enthousiastic! I really enjoyed myself here and I am looking forward to doing more makeup now, as I am finding a balance between working life and freetime πŸ™‚

For today, this is it. The footage of Nebula and my own makeup in progress has yet to be edited. My computer here is not very good at that, because it’s very old, and as you know, my laptop which I used to edit with, has gone to computerheaven hell. I’m working on things though!

I am too tired to write a lot about this right now.. Let’s say last night and earlier this morning, no wait, this day were very very awesome! Though at the moment I am cleaning up and I still need to fix my hair, so, yeah..
Everything has been documented, all your questions (HOW DID YOU DO THAT?) will be answered once I’ve edited the video!!!! But now I just want to sleep πŸ˜›

The makeup is not my own original design, credit goes to Madeyewlook, the amazing Lex ❀

HALLOWEEN PART 1

IMG_5999 IMG_5997IMG_6019

HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last night was pretty cool! I went to a party of the theatre society and damn, those people know how to dress up! It was a very good night, though I was tired from also working all day, and I knew I would have a VERY long and busy day today, because it’s finally arrived: It is Halloween today! πŸ˜€

Please note that these pictures were for yesterday. Today I am planning on something entirely different…
I went as my Elven character Ireth, in full costume ofcourse, but you’ve seen that before. I used the video of Lex for the makeup, so all credit goes to her!

  • For the white foundation I used a white cream makeup that was only 1 euro, found at the local SoLow shop. Please remember that Illamasque is very expensive when it doesn’t have to be! πŸ™‚ I made my whole skin pale, if you browse through my latest updates you’ll see that I’m actually quite tan compared to these photos. Also, when I use a flash in pictures, I’m white.

I wish you all a very, very nice Halloween today, I hope you’ll enjoy it, no matter what your plans are. Also don’t forget that my giveaway is open until Monday!
Have fun today!

Love,

-M.

Two nights until Halloween!!!!

Made these last night and the day before. I found out a few days ago that I will be attending anotherΒ Halloween celebration this friday (That’s TOMORROW!) and I needed another costume, because I won’t go as the same thing as saturday…
So, for all the readers that have known my blog for a long time, you know what these are! πŸ™‚ I’m doing a bit of fancy but simple makeup, it will be Halloween related, and you’ll just have to wait and see the pictures I’ll take tomorrow!

Last weekend I discovered that coloured contacts are now much cheaper than they were when I started out with makeup! So, obviously, I bought 3 new pairs. These are a natural purple colour, I really love how this turns out on my eyes! Will wear these tomorrow. There’s another pair that I have no non-ridiculous photo of, but they are super awesome and I will wear those on Saturday! πŸ˜€

Remember that yarn I showed you in one of these updates? Well, I made a beanie for my friend, Tereza πŸ™‚

Practising the makeup for a Team Evil member. This needs contouring, more blood and a better job on the black on the eyelids.

Making prosthetic ‘sticker’ wounds for the party attendees that don’t zombiefy themselves. I plan to paint them and add blood when placing them onto someone, not in advance.
