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.
By that I mean, make your skin all one even shade. The goal is to create a 2 dimensional character so we want our skin to look flat. No contouring, etc. Just cover everything. Now, I am about to share a picture with you that I wouldn't normally share with anyone other than my sisters. However, I wanted people who are experiencing similar skin issues to know that they can cover their problem areas and still achieve a fun Halloween, prom, or everyday look. It just takes some patience and the right shade of concealer. This week I had a really bad breakout. For anyone who has ever had cystic acne you will know that it hurts. I woke up this week with a few painful spots on my face and I would be lying if I didn't admit I was worried I wouldn't be able to camouflage them for this week's Halloween look. I should not have doubted the power of concealer. It works wonders. I do look pretty miserable in the before picture. I have to admit. I was not pleased to have those new spots or experience the pain they brought with them.
Overall this look was a really fun look to create. It does take some patience and precision for the dots and liner. Just take your time and have fun with it. I did (as I'm sure you can see in the photos). If you have any questions about this look please feel free to send me a message.
Thanks for reading!
