Halloween is an ancient Celtic holiday which is celebrated on the night of October 31 to November 1. Halloween is one of the most important holidays. The number of actively celebrating is growing every year, as Halloween is another reason for turretless fun and, of course, one’s own transformation. How to choose an image and which make up ideas to use?
In search of an image
Image for Halloween is selected in view of your subconscious desires. For example, a modest young lady wants to spend an evening being Bulgakov’s Margarita, or Tim Burton’s muse, Helena Bonham Carter in one of her most devilishly attractive images. In this case, an image will suit you and cause impending rapture in other people. In another case, where a girl feels uncomfortable in an image, and in general make-up is selected solely on the principle of “the brighter, the more extravagant,” a typical history for any party repeats -she becomes an object for oblique looks.
So, where to draw inspiration from? Internet offers a lot of make up ideas, basically, its European segment. Hundreds of ready-made solutions exist in Gothic blogs and specialized communities. Also do not forget about your favorite movie heroes: you can take an image of Mortisha from “The Addams Family”, borrow make up from Helena Bonham Carter in “Sweeney Todd” or search a resemblance to gloomy heroines of Japanese horror movies “Call” and “The Curse”.
We can predict that a good half of European ladies will visit their make up artists with a bundle of make up ideas before a Halloween-party.
What kind of experiments can be done?
Alien’s image is gorgeous. Image for Halloween is selected in view of your subconscious desires. Woman amphibian and “watercolor woman” with bright paints on faces. Images are not always sepulchral dark - make-up artists paint tropical flowers on cheeks and eyelids and often focus solely on expression and riot of colors. However, Gothic images and standard witches are also successful.
If you are going to the Sabbath …
L’Oreal released a collection of hair cosmetics, allowing to create a hair style from heroines of favorite horror movies. Multi-colored hair mascara is very popular for many years. Styling paints and tools are not very suitable for everyday use and designed specifically for parties. Unfortunately, many brands are slow to produce their collections for Halloween, and we can use what we have.
And, of course, on the eve of All Saints they sell sets of cosmetics, designed exclusively for Halloween - black shadows, lipstick, white blush. Manufacturer is usually unknown, and low quality of tubes and their contents gives their ignoble Asian origin. Using these dubious cosmetic products, of course, is possible. But - at your own risk. Note that the dyes can be really poisonous, and skin allergies can be acquired.
Make up ideas? Grim!
Of course, decorative cosmetics is not the only way to create a frightening image. You can use aqua-make up. This is water-based cosmetics, which is perfectly safe for skin and does not require application of a protective foundation.
And do not commit a major error of all “vampires” and “witches” - solid white make up all over your face. In this case, make up seems flat and inexpressive, and you will easily blend with the walls. Look at your face: it is lit unevenly, wings of nose are darker than tips, cheeks are darker than the space above upper lip. In dark places you should make smooth transitions from white to gray or even black.
Of course, the technology of Halloween make up is not easy. Ask your friends to help you, or call in to your make-up artist. The main advantage of the first option - creative work, self-expression and a great mood, which will be provided to you before the party itself. The second option may well ensure a quality make-up, made at a professional level. The main thing is that chosen image should make you feeling like a queen at a ball, and the means and methods are armistice.
Dread and fun Halloween to you =)!
