Hello all! Today I am sharing with you my fourth look in my series “13 Days of Halloween Makeup”. As much as I like to think outside the box for makeup and costumes, sometimes it is nice to go with a look that already belongs with the theme. In this case, that of a broken pumpkin is easy and definitely goes with Halloween.
Time: 30 minutes
For the normal side of my face, I just did my regular makeup. For the pumpkin side, I used bronzer, shimmery orange eyeshadow, dark brown eyeshadow, black eyeshadow, and lots of liquid eyeliner. First, I made my right eyebrow “disappear”, using a glue stick, powder, and foundation (click here for the tutorial I used). Once my eyebrow was dry, I started off by covering half my face with bronzer. I applied a thick amount to really bring out the orange tint. Next, I used a shimmery orange eyeshadow and create lines where I wanted to make the dark creases of the pumpkin. Ultimately, this just adds more dimensions to the final look. Next, using my dark brown eyeshadow, I made a blended line above the orange lines I had previously made. Next, I drew a thin line using black eyeshadow over that. Next, I took a wet Q-tip and outlined the shape of the broken pumpkin. The trick is to do many edges in all directions, to imitate where the pumpkin would break off. Then, I traced that edge with my liquid eyeliner. Once dry, I created a shadow of this outline using the same dark brown eyeshadow as before. I followed this inside of this outline and blended the colour. This adds dimension and depth. The final step in the makeup look is to use liquid eyeliner to outline and fill a carved mouth, nose, and eye. I also traced some eyeliner onto my “normal” side, to imitate cracks and crevices.
