Halloween Look #2 Simple Masquerade Look


Hi there! This is going to be a quick post. It's not so much a tutorial, but I did this cute, super simple look today and wanted to share it with you & tell you how I did it.

-I started by outlining the shape I wanted the mask to be with an angled liner brush and matte black shadow.

-Next I took a medium lavender eyeshadow and filled the whole thing in.

-Then I took a slightly darker purple shade and blended it around the inner edges.

-Next I worked on the eyes.. I blended a dark pink shadow all over the lid, the crease and the lower lashline. I lined the bottom lashline with a black liner and set it with a matte black. I used a liquid liner on the top lashline, winging it out. I applied some false lashes, the same ones I used in my navy smoky eye look I posted yesterday, which i discovered are Eyelure Naturalites Eyelashes in 120 I believe.

-I then filled in my brows, I wasn't sure if I should or not.. Since it's a mask and all.. But I did and I liked it better.

-Finally, I took some gems I bought in the scrapbook isle, and glued them all around the edge of the mask using lash glue. I used varying sizes and no real pattern.. I found the best way to do this was take a small detail brush and paint a line of lash glue and work in small sections. This part was the most time consuming.

Here's the picture with no filter, so you can see the colors better! Thats basically it. I debated on even posting this because it was so easy, but it was a lot of fun and I thought some of you would like it!

*A tip I have is apply your foundation and concealer ect before..I didn't think about this and had to improvise.

Also the lip color I used it something I made. I've really been wanted a super true lilac lip color.. I've been mulling over purchasing Limecrimes D'Lilac but I just haven't. I used NYX jumbo pencil in milk, a bright purple liner, and a little bit of Chapstick. I mixed it up in an empty shadow pan. It's working just fine!

This is a look you can do so much with, different colors, different shaped, different gems! You could add some filigree type design with black liner, really the sky's the limit with a look like this. Make it your own!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and thank you so much for reading!
