If you need a last minute Halloween costume, try the half skull makeup! It's so easy and you only need a few products to recreate the look. I've done the half sugar skull mask in the past & this year I decided to just do the bottom half of a skeleton skull - focusing on the mouth area. I personally like this idea because I can still play up my eyes and keep it somewhat still glamorous. For this look, I literally just looked in my makeup drawer and pulled up any white & black products I could work with.
MAC Studio Face and Body foundation in White
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil (Milk)
MAC Prep & Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
MAC Carbon Eye Shadow
Inglot Gel Liner in #77 + Duraline
MAC #209 & #210 brushes
If you don't have any of these products, you can check a Halloween store or store that sells makeup for something similar.
To begin this look, I started off with prepping my skin (moisturizer and primer). I did my brows and eyes - for the eyes, I used the Master Palette by Mario. I did do a more dramatic smokey eye and added MAC's Carbon to the outer corners of my eyes. After the eyes were done, I did my foundation and concealer. For this part, I just focused on the upper part of my face. I tried not to get too much foundation on the bottom half, as I was going to completely white out that area. Once I completed my foundation, I started on the half skull.
HALF SKULL -
I first started the mask by outlining half of my face with the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil. I then used the face and body as a foundation base all over. You can obviously use any other white makeup - this is what I currently had in front of me. I did about 2 layers of face and body with my Sigma Kabuki brush & then added another layer of the jumbo eye pencil. After completely whiting out the bottom half of my face, I set the makeup with prep and prime finishing powder. I then began to start outlining the mask. I took my #209 brush and created a curved line horizontally on my face, skipping the nose area. I then created the cheek bone structure. And lastly I did the teeth with my #210 brush. I added black eye shadow for shading. This part is probably the hardest part on the skull because there is a lot of detailing and shading to be done. I was in a bit of a rush so I didn't create a ton of teeth like how I had planned, but it works. The fun thing about this look, is it doesn't have to be perfect. If you struggle with the teeth, think of Hershey kisses or candy corn when outlining.
And that's it! After I was done, I sprayed some makeup setting spray to lock in all that makeup.
Hope you enjoyed this fun Halloween look! Xo.
