Halloween–Corpse Bride Practice UPDATED

Here is another look I had a stab at, the Corpse Bride from Tim Burtons fabulous The Nightmare Before Christmas. I was actually having a go at this because it will be a friends costume and I’ll be doing the makeup for her. I just wanted to see what works and have a play around with what products I’ll use. Because it’s a rough go I didn’t bother with blocking corspe bride makeupout my eyebrows and didn’t focus on the skin and lines as much as I will on the day.

I really love this as a costume idea.  I am a massive Burton fan to begin but also because no matter what face your pulling you still look sad- thanks to the eyebrows. This is a great (although extreme) example on how much eyebrows actually make a difference to your overall look.

Mermaid Makeup Tutorial – Halloween

Mermaid MakeupAfter doing the wave envy trial video I felt the need to do a mermaid makeup tutorial so here it is!

As it wasn’t planned I wasn’t entirely sure where the look was going to end up but I’m fairly happy with the outcome. The main thing (if I had to do it again) I would change would be bringing in the scales into the top and center of my forehead. Plus maybe filling in the eyebrows a mix of blue and purple, but of course these things only hit me when I’m looking at still images after I’ve filmed. Oh yeah and not doing it when my eye’s were gross and death like ha!
