Pop Halloween Makeup

Pop/comic makeup seems to be the trend this year, and I fell in love with one particular look from Beauty with Tashy.

Loved the colors, and looked simple enough to give it a shot. And this is my effort at it.

It’s just ok. I could have done a thousand times better. Here’s what I did wrong:

  • I used my Absolute NY Ink Pen rather than what I was going to originally use; my black Fluidline from MAC and an eye liner brush. The tip is perfect for eyeliner use, but I found it too soft to create makeup art. I had to press down,Β which caused me to mess up. And this stuff stays on so well, it was irritating my skin rubbing so hard to take it off.
  • I forgot to pick up the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil. So I ended up using my NYX Slim Eye PencilΒ #fail. The circles obviously were going to be uneven. And they certainly were.
  • Had to use hot pink eye shadow because yellow does not show up on my skin. It didn’t matter how much white primer I used, yellow is my base color and it just did not show up. And I was using the highly pigmented yellow that comes in the Morphe 35B palette.
  • My eyebrows were not filled in correctly, and a bit uneven.
  • I did the white dots last, IΒ should have done them first.
  • I put lipstick on before the liner.

I’m going to try it again tonight, correcting the hot mess I did above. Hopefully it’ll be better, and I’ll share the results up on our Instagram.

And here’s some filter fun:

    I love you so much it’s weird. Thank you for sharing your so called fail. I think you look fabulous but I know what you mean. I tried to do a Jem inspired makeup look and totally needed to use different products! I was afraid to post it, but I love how you turned your learning experience into a teaching one! As always, wonderful ❀

      Could like I be your WCW? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You know how it is when you’re a creative person you always see improvement. You always see better ways to do it. I was just lazy and tired last night. But I will try it again tonight. Hopefully I’ll get it right *crossing fingers*

        YES! But honestly we are our own worst critics. I look at you and other bloggers and am inspired so…you’re doing something right πŸ˜‰

        And you’re absolutely right. We are always looking to do things better so we see the flaws no one else sees.
