These look fantastic. Not ever having done nail art before, are the crayloa pens any good and do you need to put a coat of clear on top?

They are SO good. I don't think you get them in the UK, so I bought a couple while I was in America on holiday. Much better than what is sold here!

& yes, just draw whatever you want, then put a top coat on to seal the design.

I painted my nails with pumpkins for halloween. SO simple to do!

I used two different colours of orange and a crayola nail art pen.

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Easy zombie make up on: October 26, 2011 07:20:45 AM

Hello, I just did a tutorial for my blog, and thought I would post it here too! It's a really easy way to do zombie/ghoul make up that only uses things that are likely to be in a normal make up bag (foundation, eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara!).

So. Here's how you do it. I should point out these photos are brighter/lighter than it was in real life - mainly because my camera has a mental flash, and I wanted to make sure each step was clear. Which it hopefully is!

Step 1. Try to get your face as pale and matte as possible. Because I'm wasn't going to put make up anywhere other than my face, I didn't use white face paint (too much of a contrast) and instead piled on the lightest foundation I had. Use white eyeshadow sparingly across nose/cheeks/eyes/lips, just to keep it as pale as possible. Use cheap face powder (I used No 17 from Boots) to even it out/get rid of any shiny bits.

Step 2. I've got about three different shades of metallic red eyeshadow that I never use (other than Halloween). You probably do too! Use this all over your eye lids and below your eyes, creating a bit of a v-shape under each eye socket. It's best to keep this bit messy - you want to look like the eye sockets are bruised so use your finger to blend the colour. Blend the red so it runs into the sides of your nose.

Step 3. Get a dark grey or black eye shadow and smudge on your eye lids (up to the corner of each brow) and slightly below the eye. See how the red colour shows through? It looks really good and bruised!

Step 4.  Add eyeliner. This is probably an optional step, but I always wear eyeliner so it was happening. Liquid eyeliner will stand out over the dark shadow on your lids.

Step 5. Take a black eyeliner pencil and colour in your eyebrows. I kept it quite rough and messy. Cause you're undead, you know. You'll have messy eyebrows.

Step 6. Use your red eyeshadow to line your cheekbones, really blending the colour under the bone. Once you had a good (but nicely blended!) line of red shadow, add some black on top, staying underneath the cheekbone.

Step 7. Take a black pencil and add lines to places that need a little extra definition. I did a couple of (rough and messy) lines on the shadow on the sides of my nose and my cheeks. Blend the line a little bit with your finger, but not too much (i.e. you want to make sure the definition is there, but not look like you have just been drawing lines on your face).

Step 8. Add mascara and (if you've got it) fake blood. I didn't, so I used benetint under my nose and by the side of my mouth. Fake blood is good because it sort of scabs while it dries, but benetint (or even a brighter red eyeshadow) would do the job if needed.

& that's it! E-a-s-y. Now just pull stupid faces and pretend to bite people.

I love Florence, it's such a beautiful city. The pizza looks tasty too.

Wow, that looks incredible! I'm glad oreos are easier to find in the UK now, will definitely be giving it a go.
