I spent Halloween this year doing something a little different over at The Sussex Makeup Academy! Far removed from my usual bridal brief, I worked on my first creative Halloween makeup look with Principle Amy Prifti.
Taking inspiration from some of the fantastic skull makeup looks online, we designed the skull effect that we wanted to achieve with pen and paper first.
We painted on the white base to cover the bottom half of the face using a large buffing brush and sponge before mapping out the key features of the cheek bones, jaw line and teeth with a finer brush. We moved on to contour and shade each element with black and grey makeup to create the 3D effect of the skull.
Once the eye socket and cracking details were added around the chin and cheeks, the look was given a finishing touch using gems from Funk On.
I thoroughly enjoyed working on this creepy look and was amazed by what could be achieved with Amy’s tips and guidance.
