Creepy Old Woman - Halloween Make up Tutorial

Hey everyone ! Todays make up isn't so glamorous but its Halloween , its supposed to be scary .This look is easy enough to achieve just time consuming . I was inspired by the scary looking woman from the horror film 'Drag me to hell' and the old woman in the film 'shutter island' .

To achieve this look it requires lots of weird facial expressions and stretching your face so the latex will create wrinkles. Most Halloween shops stock liquid latex or you could order it online from : FaceFx .The grease paints I used were from Kryolan and the contour stick I used at the beginning of the video was from Kiko cosmetics .

Contact lenses really add something special to any Halloween make up look and this one is from an Irish website : . You get two in a pack , but I thought wearing just one looked a little creepier .

If you have never worn liquid latex before I recommend doing a patch test 24hr prior by applying a little behind your ear or the crease of your arm . If there is any irritation, itchiness or redness  , you could be allergic so I wouldn't recommend using it .

Some tips when using liquid latex :
- Don't get it on your clothes , it wouldn't come off !
- Try apply a good few layers , it makes it easier to peel off .
- Don't apply it with any good quality make up brushes , it will wreck the brush . I usually use cheap   art brushes or a latex sponge .
- Dry the latex with a hairdryer then powder over it to make it matte . If you don't powder over the latex it will look really shiny .
- Repeat latex - dry - powder as many times as you like until you get the look desired .

Hope you all enjoy this tutorial , I will try create a more glamorous Halloween look next . I felt like Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls when she walks into the party and she's dressed as a zombie bride and everyone else is dressed as a bunny or some sort of cute animal , haha .
