TUTORIAL || Scar [The Lion King] Inspired Makeup Look

Tuesday, 27 October 2015

This is the tutorial that I have been waiting weeks and weeks to do. I came up with the desire to do a look like this back in September. I wanted to film it immediately but decided to make it my penultimate tutorial for my Hallowe'en series. I'm so glad that I did. So here it is, my Scar inspired makeup look. 

I was really excited to do this look because it gave me a second chance at using eyelash glue to create different textures on my face. Plus, it's fun to peel it off once finished. Seriously. It's so much fun! Try it just for that! I used an Eylure eyelash glue that came with a set of false lashes because I couldn;t find my Duo lash glue that I used for my Beetlejuice tutorial. I just could not not find it at all. 

The jist to this look is to create shading on the scar. I went with brown and purple shades because I wanted more of a healed looking scar rather than a fresh looking wound. I had drawn a face chart for this and wanted to do a purple eye look but then after watching The Lion King earlier in the week, I decided that a brown and smokey one would do the trick. What do you think?

Check out those snicker bar contour lines!

I still have a lot to learn and I am having so much fun discovering new things and challenging myself. Thank you so much for coming on this journey with me and I hope that you're learning something new too, such as how not to do something, haha. 

I hope you join me again on Friday for the last of my Hallowe'en tutorials. A little hint, get the lash glue at the ready. 

HALLOWE'EN TUTORIAL || Black Swan Inspired Makeup Look

Friday, 23 October 2015

Today's tutorial is one inspired by the makeup from the Black Swan movie starring Natalie Portman. I know that there are probably hundreds of tutorials out there on how to do this look and I thought that I would challenge myself to come up with my own version. That's just what I did and that's what I'm presenting to you today. 

Also with this tutorial, I've been working with a new editing program that has a steep learning curve and I had such a short time to get to grips with. As a result, the music overpowered the voice over track several times throughout the course of the video. Apologies. I'll make sure that doesn't happen for the next one. Promise. But here is what I did to get this look for Odile aka the Black Swan from Swan Lake. 

Naturally, this look is not a very practical look for the stage because it is not a quick look to achieve with the time available to the dancer playing Odette and Odile.  Nevertheless, it is a beautiful look and one that is very striking. I peered around a corner just after filming this look and startled my brother. Haha. 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope that you enjoyed this look and that you found this helpful and easy to learn from . I cannot wait to get my teeth stuck into the last two videos of my Hallowe'en series because they will be unlike anything I've done before. I've been waiting weeks to do these and my heart is racing in anticipation. I just hope that I can do them justice and bring them to life. 

HALLOWEEN TUTORIAL || Minions Inspired Makeup Look

Next up for Hallowe'en and next in my Kazzie-catches-up-on-her-blog, I have a tutorial inspired by the Minions from Despicable Me. It's a simple look that incorporates the yellow and blue hues that are the distinguishing marks of the adorable little sidekicks.

This is not my favourite look from this series but a friend of mine asked me to do a Minion-esque look that she could wear to work and my brain came up with this. 

I'm not the biggest fan of this look but it was an experiment and it is fun with makeup and I did have fun. No harm, no foul. I still like how the lips and brows match in with the eyes. If you don't want to use it for a Minion look, it'll be a good way to channel Flounder from The Little Mermaid or for a simple mermaid look too. The interpretation is up to you. 

HALLOWE'EN TUTORIAL || Spider Witch Makeup Look

I am so sorry that I haven't posted as frequently as I used to. Sunset Boulevard occupied a lot of my time at the start of the month and then I went straight into recovery mode to get my feet back beneath me where they belong. I was still doing tutorials and posting to my YouTube channel. If you aren't subscribed, please feel free to do so. That'll keep you all updated on new tutorials. 

Another update is that I got a new laptop as the one I had been using was dying an extremely painful death and I was simply prolonging the inevitable - that a new one was desperately needed. Since then, I've been getting everything tranferred between the two and getting the handle of a new editing software. My brain is the biggest puddle of goo at the moment. 

I hope that you like this simple look for Hallowe'en. I was inspired by a headband that I got from Asda a couple of years ago and found again. It has the quintessential Hallowe'en colours of black and orange and this looks came to me. I hope you like it and I'll be back to my old blogging self in no time. 

HALLOWEEN || Elphaba [Wicked] Inspired Simple Makeup Look

Wednesday, 14 October 2015

Next up in my Hallowe'en tutorial series is a makeup look inspired by Elphaba from the musical, "Wicked". Elphaba is my favourite character from that musical and I couldn't pass up Hallowe'en without doing a witch look that wasn't inspired by her. So, in this tutorial, I took black and green to the eyes and provided two lip options. One if you want to go darker and another if you wanted to follow the promotional poster look.

I hope you like this look. It's great for a witch look and really simple to do. 

I hope that you like this look. Feel free to leave any requests that you have. I'm always open to new ideas and challenges so let me have it!

HALLOWEEN || The Winter Soldier [Marvel] Inspired Makeup Look

This tutorial was inspired by the Winter Soldier from the Marvel Universe. I was inspired by so many YouTubers out there that actually use makeup to do masks. I decided to experiment and to try my hand at it. The Winter Soldier was the perfect choice and I'm really happy with how this first attempt turned out. 

I hope that you like this look. Feel free to request anything. I'm happy to have other ideas and challenges. 

HALLOWE'EN TUTORIAL || Beetlejuice Inspired Makeup Look

Friday, 2 October 2015

Welcome to the first of my Hallowe'en makeup tutorials! I hope that you're as excited as I am about this. I have quite a few ideas planned for the next four weeks. So excited, that I'm hoping to do two videos a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. Kicking it all off is a makeup look inspired by Beetlejuice! In this tutorial I even try my hand at a little SFX makeup by using lash glue to add texture to my face for the moss that covers his face.
