Spotlight: Make Up For Ever Halloween

I realize that this post is a few days late, but I’m still in the Halloween spirit and I’m giving myself a little shameless promotion as I did the makeup!

Here are the deets:

Who: Albie Hueston – Events and Marketing Manager for Kanon Vodka (who threw 2 epic Halloween parties: In NYC, saints and sinners at the Standard and in LA, Tim Burton characters at the LACMA. Click here for sexy party pics).

What: Halloween Outfit – Vishnu (google it!)

How To: Make Up For Ever is THE BEST for highly pigmented, face painting (also known as theatrical makeup design).

For the pale blue face, I used the the 12 Flash Color Case (which I use every Halloween when making up my fab friends). This palette comes with 12 gorgeously saturated colors that go on strong and last all night long. I mixed the white and blue (on my arm!) until it gave me that pale blue hue. I applied with a fat concealer brush to the face, neck, ears (even inside!) and belly. I used the metallic gold from the case for an electric pop under the eyes, and I continued the color with a gentle pat on the eyelids. I completed the gilded lid with Make Up For Ever’s Star Powder in 957 – saffron with green highlights (translation: GOLD). The star powder is a super pigmented loose shadow with mega sparkle. I swept this from the lash line to the brow bone. I completed the eye with Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Liner in Black to line the lower lash line. It’s smooth, precise, easy to apply and doesn’t smudge through out the night. One of my favorite liners!

I used the Aqua Liner to create a very defined arch. I lightly penciled in the brows with the black liner and extended it out a bit on the ends to give it a stronger, more dramatic feel that framed the eyes.

For the lips, I went back to the 12 Flash Color Case and mixed the salmon pink, white and a dot of bright pink colors to create the ultimate soft, matte pink hue. I made the lips oversized because botox is so “in” (kidding!) – it actually gives the mouth a more theatrical “clown-like” effect. Albie and I were both obsessed with the contrast of the “bedroom pink” lips and the pale blue face.

And, that’s it! I only used 3 products to accomplish the Vishnu face. Makeup took about 1 hour total.

Doesn’t Albie look super sexxxy?! (hair and seductive stare sold separately)

What was your Halloween face?

    Hello, while I understand artistic license. I don’t understand the utter lack of respect to very sacred beliefs of another culture. To us lord Vishnu is one of the holiest of gods and to see that translated to a haloween ghostly joke is beyond rude. It’s like turning lord Jesus into a caricature for Halloween.
