AD // STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD WITH BOOTS THIS HALLOWEEN


"Ever scrolled through social media and wished you could create an easy skeleton make-up look for Halloween? Look no further as this boo-tiful tutorial is ready to cast a stunning spell on all". This Halloween I am teaming up with Boots to be a part of their Stand Out From The Crowd campaign to show you how you can take a simple classic look and add a lil twist to make you stand out and turn heads this Halloween. In the words of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's... Heads Will Roll! 


If you, like me, prefer to be a little bit different and are wanting a Halloween look this year that is a little different, then look no further! Teaming up with Boots, I am here to show you how to add your own spin to a classic, simple Halloween look, which you can achieve in 4 easy to follow steps. 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1

Take a black eyeliner and map out section for the "broken" cutaway across your face - you can decide how big you want this section to be, but for the most effective look try and contain it to just one eye! 


Step 2 

Now it's time to white out your face - using white facepaint (or eyeshadow mixed with a little bit of water if you don't have any) white out the larger section of your face). For the best effect, it is probably a good idea to do this a couple times, leaving a few moments to dry (or gently drying your face with a hairdryer, if you're impatient like me!) between each coat. I've found for the best effect 3-4 coats works well. 


 Step 3 

Now, it's time to create your skeleton! I took an angled brush and using a black eyeshadow mapped out where the "hollow" of my eye would go first. To do this, I started at where my eyebrow is and used that as my guide for the shape. After lining it up, I blacked it out and added a few marks around the eye, including an eyebrow shape, to give it a little more depth and make it look more realistic. Next, I created the mouth. First, hollowing out my cheek bones in a very similar way to my eye shape and then adding small lines across my mouth in replacement of where teeth would be to create that effect. Finally, you will add a black out shape for the tip of your nose (something I didn't do because my nose can be really sensitive and it just wasn't reacting well to the facepaint, so I thought I'd go without adding any more product to it to be safe!) 



 Step 4 
 Finally, it's time to create a glam eye look. I started with my own foundation base and usual eyebrow routine before getting started on treating this golden eye look. Using the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Armed & Gorgeous Palette I started with the shade Smooth Criminal before concealing where the cut crease would be and adding the shade Gilt Trip for a golden look. I then added a wing and finished the look with a pair of Doll Beauty lashes to both eyes to make both looks really pop.



And that is the finished look! I love how this look turned out and how through adding a really simple twist to an already classic Halloween look, I was able to create something really unique whilst keeping the classic love of an already fab Halloween makeup look! Take a look at the finished look below -
