My halloween vampire-ish/gothic look!

Hurray!! Tonight I've decided my halloween look. I have finally decided to go as a Vampire. I copied this look of Michelle Phan's Seductive Vampire tutorial.

Here it is, I couldn't choose one pic so here are the cam whoring images of me:







The idea of the look is to be as pale as possible, since vampires are well pale and colorless. But this was sort of a challenge for me since I am very morena or dark skinned. In order for me not to look dead (uncanny since vampires are dead haha) meaning like a corpse, I had to find a way to just make my face lighter without looking like a corpse or end up with the "espasol" face.

What I used:

Face:
Ever Bilena foundation in Beige and Oriental (mixed and applied with a stipling brush)
Dollface 6 contour palette: white to set under eye and yellow powder to set rest of face.
By this time my face was WHITE like crazy. To tone it down i brushed on a nude shimmer eye shadow from the 28 palette arpund my face to soften the look.

Cheeks:
Using a stipling brush I applied Smashbox Fusion Soft lights in Intermix on the hollow of my cheeks.

Eyes:
Dark Wine Brown, Dark Matte Brown and Black from the 28 Neutral Palette.
Avon Black liner pencil
Clinique High Impact Mascara

lips:
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 21 Brun Vibrant
Sephora Lip Gloss in 07

So now that I have this look, I have to buy white contact lenses, fangs and a dress!! Aaack! So that will have to be accomplished tomorrow with Maui! Must not go home unless the whole look is complete!!! Hehe


Oh my mom walks in my room as i was cam whoring these pictures and gives me that wide eyed look and says "wow it's very halloween-y". I smiled and said "It's my vampire look" hahaha


Do you guys have your halloween looks ready yet? What are you guys cooking up? :)


Toodles!! :)
