IT 2017 - Pennywise / Makeup, Hair & Teeth

IT 2017 - Pennywise / Makeup, Hair & Teeth

Man oh man did I love me some Pennywise in the new IT movie. I enjoyed everything about him from the character design to how creepily endearing he was, right down to the lovely Bill Skarsgård underneath all that makeup. I hadn't read the book or seen the previous version before I went to go watch it and honestly I went mostly for makeup research purposes. But the second he appeared in that storm drain and spoke... My heart melted and I spent the whole movie looking forward to his next scene and dying to get home and download the book. Brad's poor arm must have been numb by the end of the movie from all the mini excitement-punches I threw his way while watching lol.

Cannibal Clown / Makeup Tutorial

Cannibal Clown / Makeup Tutorial

It's been YEARS since my last creepy clown look so I thought it was about time I fixed that. Meet Cannibal the Clown! I used a cotton and latex build up technique so it's a very easy look to achieve while still looking really effective. Since the latex is applied all over the face, you should also be able to pull it all off in one go and have a mask left over! You can keep it and display it or even reapply it at a later date, which would be ideal for a repeated costume. Mine is currently hanging in my office making me jump every time I catch a glimpse of it out of the corner of my eye haha.

Demon Priestess / Makeup Tutorial

Meet one of my new favourite lil characters! I have no idea where she came from, but I'm glad my brain space pooped her out. I think she's lovely. The brief I had set myself for this video was 'demon' and the only thing I'd actually planned to include was small horns on the forehead and a bunch of scarification. The horns didn't work out but the scars most certainly did! I swapped out horns for bloody tears instead and bam, I got myself a demon lady.

Paint Splatter Skull / Makeup Tutorial

Paint Splatter Skull / Makeup Tutorial

Time for another Halloween video! I'm not entirely sure where this one came from to be honest, but I love it! It somehow reminds me of a butterfly. I had plans to do a darker skull to contrast the bright flowers in my hair, but then I opened up my paint palette and saw all the bright colours and ended up with this instead. I can't seem to deny myself these shades! If you look back at the rare colourful looks I've done in the past, they almost always include some, if not all, of these colours.

Jigsaw / Makeup Tutorial

Jigsaw / Makeup Tutorial

Today I’m finally back to doing makeup, kicking off the Halloween videos for this year, announcing a new partnership AND launching this new blog. Exciting stuff! The look I have for you today is inspired by the promo posters for the upcoming Jigsaw movie. The SAW films were some of my favourites growing up so I'm looking forward to binge watching them all again before the new addition. I wonder if they hold up?
