Halloween is almost here and I can barely contain my excitement! To honor the month of October and the mythological legend of Stingy Jack, I have created this Jack-O'-Lantern inspired makeup look.
Every Halloween, I look forward to creating new makeup looks with special effects. This year, I decided to turn myself into half Jack/half girl! This makeup look took about two hours to complete and I am extremely happy with the turnout. This is a look that anyone can re-create with a little time and the right makeup products.
For this look, I drew out the areas in white eye pencil as to where I wanted the eye, nose, and mouth to go. Then, I filled in all of those areas with black face paint from Party City. Once the paint dried, I took Urban Decay's blackout eyeshadow and dabbed it all over the black paint to darken it.
Then, I filled the surrounding areas in with white face paint from Party City. After this dried, I dabbed orange eyeshadow from the Morphe 35O palette all over the white. I outlined the mask in black eyeliner and then drew brown lines down my face using a brown eyeliner stick. To create dimension, I dabbed yellow eyeshadow in between the lines to brighten the look. To top it off, I added glitter using the Revlon Photo Ready Eye Art glitter pen. For the other eye, I used the same Morphe palette for eyeshadow and used the Ardell Double Wispies lashes.
This is one of my favorite Halloween looks and I plan to use it again one day. If you are interested in recreating this look, here are the essential products that I used:
Black Face Paint (Party City)
White Face Paint OR Orange Face Paint (Party City)
Black Liquid Eyeliner
Brown Eye Pencil
Orange, Yellow, Black, Brown, and White Eyeshadow colors
Ardell Double Wispie lashes
Square/flat shaped makeup brush for face paint
Revlon Photo Ready Eye Art Glitter Pen (Gold)
I hope you enjoy this look and I hope that everyone has a wonderful Halloween!
