Hey Hey everyone!!
Hope you all are having a lovely week thus far! I have been in training for my job the last few days, and let me tell you I’m happy it’s over lol. Today I’m going to show you my “pop art” comic book Halloween makeup I did over the weekend. Two of my supporters on Facebook tagged me in the same YouTube tutorial video for this look, so I decided to give it a try.
This look was inspired by Anastasiya Shpagina. She does really cool makeup looks on her YouTube page, I will put her link below so you can check it out. 🙂
I just gotta say this was definitely harder than it looks lol. First of all Anastasiya did not speak English in her tutorial, so I legit had to just follow her movements, I can’t tell you how many times I restarted the video lol. But through it all it came out pretty good (in my opinion) for never doing it before, or knowing what she saying. The good news is, it doesn’t matter what language someone speaks when art is involved because the art always speaks for it’s self. I just inspired myself (feel free to quote me on that lol) Just remember anything and everything you do is one of a kind, because there is only one you 🙂 Now let’s get into the products I used:
Foundation: I used my Studio fix by M.A.C. I am really starting to like this product again, it gives my face such a smooth even finish. To outline my face and neck I used black eye shadow from my Morphe palette.
Blush: BH cosmetics Professional blush palette, I used a rosy pink color (sorry, there was no name for it).
Brows, nose and eye outline– I used NYC black eyeliner pencil. Now I would not recommend this if you plan on doing this look or something similar for Halloween. I say this because this pencil does not stay put. I had to fix my eyebrow three times because any little touch smudges or removes the liner. I only used it because I wanted to be able to easily remove my makeup after I took these pictures. I would recommend a waterproof/smudge proof liquid liner for this look like Wet-N-Wild H20 because as I stated many times before it does NOT come off lol. I used NYC white eyeliner to outline my brows.
Eyes: I used ColourPop cosmetics “sunrise” eye shadow, Wet-N-Wild H20 liquid liner to draw in fake eyelashes (before applying real ones) and to draw my wing. I used NYX ‘milk” jumbo liner pencil to fill in my tears, tear ducts, and outer corner of my eye.
Lips: I filled in the center of my lips first with Sephora gel black liner, for the “teeth” I used NYX “milk” jumbo pencil, and for my lip color, I used a lip crayon I got from the beauty supply store (the name rubbed off sorry) but any hot pink, or fuscia lip color would do. I then lined my lips with the same Sephora gel liner to make them stand out. For highlight on the lip I used the same “milk” pencil.
And there you have it my spin on “pop art” comic book makeup. Let me know if you have tried this or plan to try it, if you do tag me (BeautybyElyse ) so I can see your awesome work!! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by until next time…
Be Blessed Beauties
