Haven’t done one of these in a while on the blog, but I had some spare time and it’s Spooky Season, so next up in my Classic Horror Makeup Series is Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street. Complete with body painted outfit and tin foil blade fingers since I’m on a budget.
I was not planning on doing another slasher horror movie look until next week, but last night there was a power outage and I didn’t really have anything else to do. So, I decided to create Jason Voorhees from the cult classic Friday the 13th. I was inspired to do this specific version from @peachcait over on Instagram. Being completely honest, I have never watched this movie or most of the iconic horror classics. Maybe this Halloween season I’ll actually watch them for the first time rather than just the “Everything Wrong With…” videos on YouTube.
It’s spooky season! I love Halloween, it’s my favorite time of the year. And yes I could start celebrating and doing makeup looks in October, but considering how little time I have I’m going to be doing some in September too. This one I had a lot of fun recreating. The look I was inspired by was by @peachcait over on Instagram (she was inspired by @keilidhmua and @yashinss though I’m not sure what looks, I tried finding them to link in this post but failed). She’s an incredibly talented makeup artist, so check her out if you don’t follow her already. Anyways, this got me so inspired that I had to do my own version of it.
It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these on my blog. I think the last one I did was also inspired by @princessyaanna over on Instagram. Who for this look was inspired by @lilliambaezmakeup. I love drawing and painting, and since I haven’t done a creative makeup look in a while I thought I would give this one a go.
I love a good colorful eyeshadow look, it doesn’t matter the occasion. I could just be going to work, sitting around the house, or going out somewhere. So, I like to have a variety of colorful eyeshadow palettes in my collection. Since the post on eyeshadow palettes I said goodbye to during the move, I have also gotten rid of around ten additional neutral ones. I’m not going to be doing a post on that, but I thought I would let you all know. In addition to getting rid of those palettes, I have gained an additional one: NYX Modern Dreamer Palette. Which has a lot of variety in eyeshadow colors. So, today I’m going to be sharing three of the looks I’ve created thus far using the Modern Dreamer palette.
Instead of getting new palettes and my constant desire to do some sort of series, I’m going to be doing an ongoing 3-looks-1-palette or collection series. Where I don’t necessarily review a palette or share any deep thoughts about it since all of these I’ve reviewed for the most part on my blog at some point. If I did I’ll link the review post at the end of each post if you want to see my overall thoughts on a palette, as my opinion hasn’t really changed on the formula since I put those reviews up. Now some of the palettes will be limited edition ones as I’m just going to cycle through my collection. If the palette is still available, I will make a note on each post as well in this series.
