Aging myself from 28 to 78 in less than an hour.

Hello subbies how are you all on this lovely fall day? Continuing with my Halloween looks in under an hour here is one more for those of you whom are looking to transform yourself into an older woman or even a man you can follow the same idea just make sure to also age any facial hair you may have.

Items needed:
- Eye liner brush or thin paint brush
- Blending brushes
- White cream Halloween makeup (to create grey hairs)
- Eye shadows (browns and bone or skin colors for highlighting and contouring)
- Liquid or cream foundation to create your base
- Brown eye liner
- Pressed or loose powders
- Primers for (face and eyes)


I started off my transformation with a freshly clean and moisturized face. I applied some face primer and eye primer to ensure the makeup lasts.

 

Apply your base of choice whether it is in liquid or cream form. Make sure to set it with a loose or pressed powder.



Make sure you have several different shades of browns to create your shadows and lines on the face.


Using brown liner I drew lines where I already have natural lines and wrinkles. But if you are very young or have amazing genes make sure to frown or scrunch your face and find where you would naturally have wrinkles and lines. I then drew lines with the brown liner and topped them with brown shadow and blended them making them look more realistic. I did this all over my face and a little down my neck to give the appearance of sagging skin. I highlighted between all the wrinkles with a bone or flesh color to create a highlight and shadow effect. Using the white cream costume makeup and a brush I painted in grey hairs into my brows and hair, and using my finger I patted it in just a bit to make them look more natural.  Once you have completed all of these steps your end result should look something like this:

28 to 78 in under an hour.
Lol I look like my grandmother!
 
 
Enjoy and hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Comic book pop art (halloween look)

Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this look I did a few days ago. Halloween is right around the corner and I know many of you have children, siblings or friends that may need you to help them with their makeup and you may not have a whole lot of time to do some awesome elaborate looks. So I challenged myself to complete this comic book look in under 45 minutes. Obviously if  I had more time I could have done so much better but the point was to keep it simple and quick.


 
 
To make it even easier I used black cream eyeliner for all of the outlines and brows, and the white base was created with the lightest cream concealer I had in my palette and I topped it off with the most pigmented white eye shadow I own. The blue and the red are from two face paint tubes I got from my local costume shop. Hope this look helps any of you in need of a quick and easy way to participate in any Halloween activities without breaking your piggy bank.
