Halloween Skull Makeup

Halloween Skull Makeup
It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark…
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart..

 

Is it really Halloween if you don’t sing some Thriller lyrics at least once? That was a rhetorical question, haha! Nonetheless, it is the season of spooks and sprites! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love dressing up and seeing everyone’s costumes. In the recent years I’ve diverged from the sexy costumes (ex. Babe Lincoln) and I’ve dived into the gory Halloween costumes. It’s always fun to dress up to look gorgeous, but I find more fun in looking like a ghoul from the grave! After all, it’s not every day of the year that you can paint your eyes dark and splatter your face with fake blood. Halloween is truly a special time of year.
For this post I teamed up with makeup artist Chelsea, owner of Beauty Mark Boutique. She is a special effects makeup artist and I would consider this one of her more mild looks. She has an incredible talent that, quite frankly, terrifies me. Chelsea can turn an average Joe into looking like a Texas Chain Saw Massacre victim. Although she told me she prefers the gory makeup looks, she can also turn you into a unicorn or mermaid. She sells her own makeup palettes and brushes, and you can shop them here. Chelsea was so kind to give me a palette and a few brushes, so stay tuned on Instagram for that post! I knew I had to work with photographer Mathew Wonderly for this insanely creepy shoot. I’d describe his photography style as macabre, although he can turn it way down as he has shot many outfits for my blog. I love well-rounded, talented artists who can just do anything in their trade. That’s how you know they truly have something special!

 

Enjoy these creep-tastic (I think I just made up a word and I honestly don’t know how I feel about it… ) pictures and tell me in the comments below, what are you dressing up as for Halloween?!

    Taylor, you look INCREDIBLE! I am so glad you made a post on this because your instagram was seriously stunning! & you have the most incredible cheekbones. This is one of the best skeleton looks I’ve seen and you still look like a major babe! I LOVE the black and white effects – it really adds to the “creepy” (but still sexy) vibes. Happy Halloween!! xx Shannon

      Shannon you are so kind! I was telling Chelsea she did a wonderful job contouring my cheekbones. Now this isn’t an everyday look, but you should have seen them in real life! Thanks so much for your kind words 🙂

      I wish I had talent like this to do my own makeup. It took about an hour and if we had longer she probably would have used it. Such an incredible talent!

      Thank you Jackie! The funny part is that these photos were taken outside at dusk around 7:30PM, but they all look like they were in a studio! Thanks so much for your sweet comment 🙂
