Happy Halloween!

I hope that you all have a fantastic Halloween! Have fun and be safe! I did my first run of skull makeup today on my youngest daughter. I like the end result well enough, but I dislike the white face paint  that I bought for this look. It is really stiff and cracked while I was still applying makeup. But she is happy with it. 14937221_10154785272154756_4802695193091373407_n

We have been so busy it is hard to get anything done. My oldest joined Sea Scouts and my weekends are so packed! We have stuff going on everyday, on top of homeschooling and regular life. There is just not enough time to get everything done! So I am going to  add some pictures of recent fun makeup looks that I have done. Just so you can check it out. 🙂

14702345_10154771514909756_1325036120388668858_nI wore this to my daughters gym on the day that she got to dress up. The girls love to see how I do my makeup each week so I did something special. And had my hair crimped…why be boring?

This is Henry. He belongs to my youngest daughter. She loves him.

I have an obsession with skulls and this is the best time of year to get them from some place other than Amazon.

 

I recently made the switch to Kat Von D’s foundation. I love a full coverage foundation and I really love this one. It sits on the skin well, it holds up to working out. It didn’t bother my skin any more than I anticipated when changing for one brand to another. And even being full coverage, it doesn’t settle into fine lines. Which for those of us over 20 is a big deal. And one pump is plenty for me. And I like coverage. So all in all I am really happy with the switch.  I do not like the smell, but other than that, I really love it. Oh, and can we take a moment to appreciate the time of year where everyone puts out a black lipstick? #stockupnow.

 

That’s it for now. I will post a little more later in the week. In the mean time, make sure you follow me in IG for makeup post@ @Twisted_Notts.

Thanks for stopping in!

Tip Tuesday

Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday!

This weeks tip is pretty short and sweet, but a lot of people don’t do it, and it will make a difference in the way your foundation looks and holds. Before you use your foundation, shake it up. Really well. I turn mine upside down and shake. If you are using a dropper style foundation, like this..079d48625960a7cf300cc8d8b8434f8c

With these you want to take the dropper top off and empty the dropper into the bottle. Then put the top back on and shake. This keeps the foundation pigment mixed and you won’t have the old stuff still sitting in the dropper. It won’t get mixed up this way. This makes sure you get even color coverage. No splotchy spots! Shake your primer and moisturizers as well to keep everything evenly distributed in the product.

Sorry I didn’t post on Monday…I have something special coming and I am waiting to do the next Makeup Monday on that! I am super excited to show you what my husband got me!

 

 

 

And for some creepy…..

Yesterday I finally gave into some curiosity and googled creepypasta. I didn’t actually go to the site, I just looked through the images. I found a few characters that I thought were interesting and decided to creepify my son. He’s been betting me to do fx makeup on him anyhow. So I took some of the ideas from creepypasta characters and some imagination and got to work on my son. This was the final result. It was fun to take the picture in low light and get the blacked out eye effect. 13117808_866700433475806_1198263706_n(1)

No special techinique was used, just eyeshadow and lipstick. I am looking for an adult to do a slightly different version of this look, but it involves actually covering up the eyes. I am pretty cautious about what I am putting on young tender skin. I am planning to use latex and eyepatches, but latex pulls hair out when removed. And it hurts soft baby skin. But I am going to do some asking around and see if any of my grown up friends wants to volunteer. 🙂

So there you have it. A creepypasta inspired creepy makeup look. The picture is from my IG account @Twisted_Notts. You can follow me and keep up with all my beauty and fx work there.

 

 

Yesterdays work.

I had some free time yesterday so I grabbed my girls and did some practice on them. They enjoy getting to be my face models.

So I did two different looks. The first is a really pretty pink look. I used the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette for some of it. I know  a lot of people don’t like this palette, but when you use it wet, it comes out really pretty. I also used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow kit on this look. I put the color Starburst on the inner corner. I used a bright pink from my Karity palette in the outer corner and into the crease. I used the black shadow from the same palette for the eyeliner, for a little softer look. 13151674_1538386453134360_4180017921229933580_n13178026_1538386309801041_8850064099220638422_n

For the second, more fantasy style look, I used mostly my Morphe palette. I did a turquoise cut crease, and on the lid I did a really pretty light aqua color. I used a damp brush to apply it because dry it’s a little too light. I colored her brows with the same color from the crease. I went over the eyelid with a glittery eyeshadow from Sephora in just about the same aqua color. Again, I used a wet brush. I lined her eyes with a white eyeliner from Rimmel.

So there you go! Just some fun looks that we did. I hope that you enjoy them. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
