I owe this look all to Ms. Alissa Ashley of Instagram and Youtube. Her unicorn zipper face was a big inspiration for this look and I was so happy with my ending results.
Now a little history about my skills. I have never done special effects makeup, especially something like this before. I am a certified makeup artist but my education somehow only covered the pretty side of it all.
Getting down to the details…
Starting off, I mapped out where I wanted the peeling skin to be with my liquid latex. Next I ripped up a sheet of paper towel (smooth surface) and placed it on top of the liquid latex. Once the pieces of paper towels were down, I placed liquid latex on top and let it dry.
Once it was dry, I placed my shade concealer and foundation on top to blend the paper towel with my skin. Once I was satisfied with the color and the way my now fake skin looked… I gently peeled up the fake skin to give the illusion that I had fake skin. Next, i began to work on the other side of my face.
Now I wasn’t a fan of the purple cream makeup by rubies. I thought that the consistency was too watery and I had to apply too much in order to receive the results I wanted. On top of that I had to place colourpop cosmetics eyeshadow in dare over top of the parts of the purple that was just too light for my liking. Next I grabbed a lighter purple shade from my NYC individual eyes eyeshadow pallette for green eyes to highlight with. Then I followed up by using colourpop cosmetics eyeshadow in too shy to add a bit of dimension back to my face.
I then popped on some random eyelashes that I found in my lash bin doubled them up on top and then placed a pair of my favorite kiss lashes (number 11) to my bottom lash line.
I hope you’ll enjoy this as much as I did while creating this look.
Do you know what you’re gonna be for Halloween yet?
