I love Halloween! Though at the moment, I have nothing planned this year. And I know I’m probably not alone. So I’ve decided to do a post featuring 2 easy face painting looks I did last year. If I need to put together a costume for this year, I’ll probably either try one of these again or another face painting idea (either a skeleton or pop art girl).
This is a very easy look to do. Apply white face paint, then using either a paint brush and black face paint or an old eyeliner (I used liquid) to sketch in the details. It’s up to you what colours you use, I used a lipstick for the red, though you could use face paint or eye shadow. Search Google Images, YouTube and Pinterest for ideas and inspiration.
I based this look off Siobhan’s creepy doll on Letzmakeup on YouTube (video here). I did it on my sister the Halloween 2011 and liked it so much that I decided to try it on myself last year. It’s a simple enough look. Again, white face paint. I then blocked out my eyebrows so I could draw in a new set. I used the liquid eyeliner.I only put on the look for hanging around my house Halloween (when waiting to see if I got any trick or treaters. I got one call, my brother!). If I had done this properly, I would have definitely applied false eyelashes, both above and below. I think they really do add to the look. I might also had some false freckles.
If you are looking for some more easy face ideas, Marian over at High Life of Mars has loads of really cool ones that are well worth looking up!

Hopefully I’ll have one or two more Halloweeny posts up in the next day or two!
