Halloween Makeup | Half Skull/Half Pin Up

I'd actually never seen this makeup done before, but I discovered it last night in an hour long Pinterest rampage. Turns out basically everybody does the whole half skull thing, and I'm not all original and cool like I first thought. Damn. Either way it still looks rad. I've seen it done with normal makeup, but I love the way it looks with the pin up inspired look. I even added a beauty spot - hello Marilyn.

Products Used
Black and White Face Paint  - Hobbycraft
Collection Fast Stroke Liner - Boots
Maybelline Lash Sensational - Boots
Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter (Red Velvet) - Boots
Eylure False Lashes (070) - Boots

I'm not even going to attempt to describe how I painted half a skull on my face because it will probably make absolutely zero sense, but here is the YouTube video I used - it was definitely the best one!

  33. You are rocking this look! I love your bangs, they actually make it work super well for pin up (and just as cute for skull). Totally not dressing up this Halloween but gonna stick to just face makeup. I've gotten so lazy with costumes the past 3 years!

  39. Such a cool idea! I love when people add an extra twist to classic makeup looks, and you did it double here haha :) I do that all the time where I think I'm doing something revolutionary and find out its been done a million other times, at least you know your idea was cool enough to be popular in the first place!

  44. Awesome makeup! The left side skull makeup is super spooky and must look even more scary at night in partial lighting. The lashes, eyeliner and lipstick on the right side of your face are beautiful! What a contrast, and what a visual impact when you turn your hear from left to right, exposing the left side after the right!
    I hope you're having a fab Halloween!
