• Essence Halloween Makeup Look

    As promised yesterday, today I am sharing my Essence Halloween Makeup look. My inspiration was what I like to call "Midnight Spider" look. The challenge was to create a look using Essence makeup to the value of R100! This is the makeup I was sent to create my look:
    I am by no means a good makeup artist and this was quite a challenge for me, but I played around with my look and this was what I came up with.

    It was really tough getting the spider webs right and I tried quite a few times until I decided that it doesn't need to be perfect - it's something that is fun, easy to do. So this is how I created the look:

    1. I started off by lining the top and bottom of my eyelids with the essence eyeliner pen and I took the line all the way up the out to create the first line for my spider web.
    2. I then continued to add the spider webs and connected them using the essence eyeliner pen. Once I was happy with the webs I covered my lids in the Pop eye shimmer mono eyeshadow (a smokey black colour). I blended this colour all the way up to my brow bone. 
    3. To help the spider webs stand out I decided to add in some colour in between.  I used the Disco Diva mono eyeshadow  to create a more "moody look" and the Pop eye was uesed to add some smokey-ness to the look. I blended the purple eyeshadow over my cheeks because it gave my cheeks a bit of colour and also helped to blend the look into the rest of the face.
    4. Once I was done with that I used the Essence Crystal Eyeliner to outline the spider webs just to make them sparkle more in lighting and also added the glitter to my inner eyelids.
    5. My lips - this was quite an experiment for me. I used the lipgloss as a base and then added the Disco Dive eyeshadow on my lips. I added the silver and purple crystal eyeliner in the centre of my bottom lip to add some shine and dimension to my lips.
    6. I coated my lashes with Essence multi action mascara to add volume, curl and lengthen my lashes. 
    7. To finish off the look I applied Essence Frame fame glamour lashes. This was the first time I have ever worn lashes and I found this so simple and easy to apply. What is also great is that they are easy to remove and I can use them again.
