Halloween 2014: Glow In The Dark Skull




The next look in my make up based Halloween look is a Glow In The Dark Skull. I cheated a little on this one as I used face paints, but black and white don't break the budget. I got Snazaroo colours, which I think were £3.20! Everyone loves a skull face at Halloween, so to shake it up I decided to do a slashed effect, as well as use glow in the dark paint, perfect for any nights out.

I started off by applying my base as usual and applying eye make up on one eye. Then, I used a thin brush and the black facepaint to draw a rough outline of where I want the slashes to be. Before the paint dried, I used a small sponge tip brush to blend out the line a little. Next. I blacked my eye and my nose and my cheekbone with the black paint. I then added all the white face paint, including over one half of my lip. After this dried, I went back over the lip and added teeth with the black. All that's left to do after that is blend in a little more black in any areas you think there wouldn't be any bone and add a later of glow in the dark paint! I used the £1 cream from ASDA, but as soon as I put it on and took a few photos I could feel my face stinging >,< Off to Hobbycraft I go to try theirs!

If you want to make this look a little more rough around the edges, you can mix the black and white to make grey and add more shading. Really you can just go wild!

The rest of my day has been spent continuing to make my Halloween outfit, I really think paper mâché is my calling! Look out for an extra post this week, as it's my birthday tomorrow and I'm treating myself to a new hair do and getting my nails done ;)

    1. You don't need to be creative to do this, once you map out the shape it's so easy :)
