Halloween is the one time of year a girl gets to dress as a slut and it be acceptable, except in my case I want to dress to be as scary as ever so I have decided this year to dress as a skeleton and I am going to let you in on exactly how I got my look.

I used the Snazaroo face paint in black and white for my look. I actually got this off eBay for £3.15 each. I am then going to use some basic make up sponges and then 2 small eye shadow brushes for the detailing, one being a round brush the other being a thin slanted brush.
IMG_3117Firstly using a sponge I paint my whole face white and I take this down my neck towards my collar bones trying to make this as even as possible.

IMG_3119Then using the round brush and the black paint, I outline the edge of my nose and then colour half way up my nose. At the top where I have colour I then create a heart shape so to make the nose look like it would if it was a gap.

Using the same brush I then colour around my eyes in black going right up to the top of my eyebrows and then under the eye to about the same distance. Using the slanted brush I then draw a flick in the top centre of the eye to create an angry look for the eyes. On the outside edges I also draw some flicks as to make the eye circle look slightly cracked.

Using the thin brush I then draw some line from the centre of the lips outwards. This is to make it look like old teeth on my face. I draw eight lines on the top and bottom lips making sure they get thinner towards the end so that it looks faded.

In the centre of the lips I also paint them black to make the mouth more defined and to make the teeth look like they have more separation.

IMG_3123I then move onto the jaw. Firstly I start in line with the eyes and using the round brush I drawling the hair line going in a slight curve on the cheek bone then going back into the jaw. I then follow the bottom of the cheek bone towards the mouth where you would usually contour, using the black to create a line then finishing with a downwards flick towards the mouth. At the bottom of the jaw I then painted the underneath black and brought it up to the side of the ear.

I the created a small semi circle shape to fit in with the curve front the line under the cheek bone. I then continued to join that up an go to the end of the teeth under the lips finishing in a point. Once this is done and all the lines touch I fill this in with the black paint. This leaves the face looking more gaunt and thinner.

IMG_3125I then continue to draw a black line around the edge of the face crossing over in going onto the forehead to make the head look cracked. I use the thin slanted brush to gently draw around some shading in the bends of the jaw as well.

To finish the look  I take a sponge and use the black paint to make six lines on the neck to act as a shadow making the white paint look like my neck bones.
