On my Makeup by Bree Facebook page I was asked to do a Zombie tutorial. Since I had never done anything like that before I thought why not? I love a good challenge and I also want to make Halloween looks (and tutorial videos) that people will find useful.
So. I sat down, got out all of my makeup and decided to try my best. This is what I came up with. It is my take on a Zombie Fairy (unfortunately I didn't have wings - so you will have to use your imagination). Note: I have never watched a Zombie movie or tutorial ( I am rated G! I am not kidding) but promise to do my homework for next year!
If you want to re-create this look watch the video below to find out how. The products are listed here as well as in the description beneath the video on YouTube.
Get ready for one serious transformation...
I took these photos with my cell phone as I transformed myself into Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. I am a bit of a Johhny Depp fan. So much so, I thought I would take the challenge of turning myself into one of his most famous characters. To achieve this look you will need:
Here are the steps to recreate this look:
Every year there are trends with Halloween looks. This year when researching different looks to try I saw a lot of Sugar Skulls and a lot of Pop Art. I have already tried a Sugar Skull look - so I thought that it was time I try some Pop Art.
Before you start this look you want to make sure that you have an even canvas.
Maleficent is the Villain from Disney's Sleeping Beauty. It is a look I've been wanting to try for years. To create this look I had to get a little creative. I do not own the elaborate head piece and didn't want to paint the widows peak on my face. So, instead I cut a garbage bag and bobby pinned it to my head, and my cape was a vampire cape from Dollarama!
Don't worry, this makeup look isn't that hard to re create. To be honest it kind of felt like doing elaborate purple and green eyeshadow and then applying green foundation. Afterthought: Since I created this look when I was first beginning my blog I didn't think to take pictures 'during' the transformation. So, I thought I would use PicMonkey and try my best to re-create the steps so you have a better idea of what I did to transform myself into Maleficent. It was such a fun look to complete. If you want to re create it yourself follow the steps below:
Believe it or not this is my roommate Sam. She was also my model for the Edward Scissorhands transformation I did (click here to check it out). I had a few requests to do a Sugar Skull look, so I thought I would give it a try. It is a pretty popular look and can really vary in appearance when you google Sugar Skull Makeup. That is what I liked most about this look - creative freedom. To create this look, I took features of a few different Sugar Skulls to create a look of my own.
This is how I did it:
I have been wanting to create an Ursula inspired look for a while. When you google Ursula makeup some of the results that came back made me realize just how difficult a task this was going to be. However, I do like a challenge so I set up my makeup tools and set to work transforming myself into the famous sea witch from the Disney movie The Little Mermaid.
As you can see from the photo, I did get a wee bit carried away with the photo shoot! It was just too much fun being a villain! This was probably the hardest look I have done to date, since Ursula is so cartoon like. If you want to re create this look you can do so by following these steps:
Well, the closest I will ever become to looking like one anyway. Though I might be able to pull off snow white too! I love Disney, always have, always will. I thought that I would post a transformation this week into the beautiful Disney Princess, Pocahontas.
I created this look based on the 'before' picture. The lesson I learned from this transformation is photographing a change in contouring and skin tones is not easily picked up without the right lighting. Next time I will be sure to capture pictures with the natural sunlight!
These are the steps I followed to achieve this look:
Ok. I know it is a bit early to start thinking about what you're going to dress up as, but I couldn't resist. I love Halloween! I think my love of makeup first began when I was a kid and would volunteer to do face painting for anyone who would let me. Kiddies day, I was there. I loved any opportunity to unleash my creative side. That hasn't changed. Halloween is a great opportunity to use costume makeup and create a totally different look. You can turn yourself into your favourite Disney character, super hero or villain. The sky is the limit. Here is a Halloween preview of the Corpse Bride look that I did on my sister Julia today. I say preview as I plan on creating more costume looks as we get closer to Halloween. Note: in the picture I put a blue overlay on Julia's hair since we didn't have a blue wig.
