So I did a Halloween Makeup look & thought I would share it! It's an Unzipped look. I saw this on Youtube a few years ago & always wanted to try it. I watched Petrilude's Youtube video & was totally inspired! Plus I have a thing for Men & Drag. *Kisses!* NEWAYS-
So FOUR YEARS LATER! I see this kit at Walmart. I've tried some of these kits before & its pretty hit or miss with them. This was definitely a hit. *I did add a lot of my own stuff though* BUT! This kit had everything I DIDN'T have.
This kit comes with:
-One packet of Spirit Gum (very generous amount)
-One packet of Spirit Gum Remover (Ah-ha! we're thinking ahead here! I like that!)
-One packet of "Bloody Scab" (my favorite)
-Brush for applying Spirit Gum
-Two Makeup Sponges
-Palette of White & Black Makeup
I also picked up two .97 tube of Makeup/Face paint stuff (Red & White)
SO...here i am *the scariest part*
*I'm looking very silly right about now*
SO! I cut down the extra black trim on the zipper & took a lighter to the raw edge and sealed them. SIDE NOTE: I noticed a lot of people using liquid latex, tissue paper, wax, ALL KINDS OF SHIT Glued to their face to hide the wide fabric on the zipper* I was just doing a test run for Halloween, and didn't want/have time to commit to such work. SOoOoOo...I went this route.
Unzip zipper & play with it until you find a good spot/amount of zippiness desired. Then I applied a Generous amount of Spirit Gum to the back of the zipper. Spirit Gum can be messy FYI. Try not to get it all over the place like I did. Once dry & in place, I applied "My Face". SIDE NOTE: If anyone is interested in a tutorial or more information on the makeup leave me a comment. Until then, I'm skimming through this.
I added some fake eyelashes. Used some Sugarpill Cosmetics *My all time fave*, MAC *MAC's "Cyber" Lipstick is GREAT for bumps & bruises*, Vampires Blood, 120 Palette, Vice Palette Urban Decay, Smashbox...the list goes on.
And before you know it, I did this...
Again...this was a test run & first try @ Bloody Gore FX. But for a quick run through, I was pleased. After doing the look, I see LOTS of little details to add & things to fix. But that's the beauty of Test Runs.
Here are a few more shots:
That was my "Unzipped" Look! Hope you enjoyed! Let me know what ya think! <3
