Halloween Lookbook 2k17

Posted on November 02, 2017

Halloween has always been one of my favourite holidays! It's the only time of the year when you can be whoever and whatever you want to be and won't be judged (at least not as much) for it. Every year, I'm always really excited to come up with ideas of what I want to be for this very special day! Most of my stuffs are DIY and they are so cheap and easy to make. AND let's not forget about them candies and chocolates!

This halloween, my friends and I have decided to do a lil Halloween Lookbook for ya'll! Hope they will give you some ideas and inspirations for the next Halloween. I'll also include some of the products I've used and brands I'm wearing here!




THE BIG BAD WOLF

Model: Jacob F.

IG: @jake3200

Outfit

  • Hooded Tank Top: Cotton On
  • Dark Grey Sweatpants: H&M
  • White Sneakers: H&M

Makeup

  • White Face Paint
  • Grey Face Paint
  • Black Face Paint
  • Fake Blood
  • Make Up Forever Mist & Fix Setting Spray
  • Fake Teeth with Fangs

This look is inspired by the wolf from the story of Red Riding Hood. You can either be a lone wolf or be paired up with a partner as Red Riding Hood. This look can be pulled off just with any grey coloured outfit. The top can be worn with either the hood up or down. Switch it up to change your look throughout the night.

For this look, all I've used on his face are just white, grey and black coloured face paint. Start by washing your face and make sure to dry it with a face towel. When the face is completely dry, use the white face paint to draw around the eye sockets. Next, use the black coloured face paint to draw around your eyes (like how you would draw a very thick catliner). Blend the black colour out, stroking the edge until you've achieved a smokey eye sort of makeup. Continue using the black face paint to draw the nose and lips. Using a thinner brush, start drawing strokes around your face blending the three colours of face paints with one another. Using your finger, spread some fake blood around the lips to chin area. Remember to use a setting spray before heading out. Add on some fake fangs and you're good to go!

(Wolf Scratched Scars)

  • Fake Blood

Coloured Contact Lense (LEFT EYE)

This is my second time dressing up as Red Riding Hood. For this time around, I've decided to add in some wolf scratches to portray her stronger and edgier character. Instead of being a scared little girl running for her life, she is courageous enough to stand up against the wolf (with the scars as dire consequences). Again, this look can also be partnered up with someone as the wolf.

To create this look, pick out an all black outfit(preferably something you can easily fight a wolf in) and pop on a comfortable pair of boots. Put on any simple makeup look you prefer but best with a gorgeous red lip!
Optional: When you are done, put on a white or close to white coloured contacts on one of the eyes (the side where you want the scars to be).
Using a black pencil liner, gently draw the outline of the scars. Use the red face paint and fake blood to fill in after. To create a more realistic and fresher looking wound, try to add more layers of fake blood after each applied layer dries up.

Coloured Contact Lense (LEFT EYE)

  • by Barbie Eyesland

Sometimes, it is important to honour the traditional characters of horror. Vampire is one of the most classic and oldest folklore creature of the night. However, don't let that stop you from stepping up your game! The vampire outfit for this look is a rental. However, if you have limited budget, you can easily put together some fabric and DIY (or if you happen to have a medieval themed dress in preferably black and red, that'll be great as well!). Standard black with a hint of red outfit, black boots, a cape and some fangs with fake blood are all you need to pull off this classic. Some additional accessories such as a black choker and fish nets leggings can be added on to enhance your costume-giving it a lil trendy touch.

As for the makeup, go for the classic red lips and catliner look-nothing yells vampire more than a sexy sultry look. Add some fake blood around the lips area in a dripping pattern to add a bit of gore. Remember to drip it down instead of using a brush or finger to draw it to make it look more realistic. Last but not least, add on a pair of fake fangs and red contact lenses to spice up your entire look.
