It me. SO sorry for the hiatus, but I’m back and ready to start blogging again. Halloween just passed this week, and over the weekend I went to a party as the Joker in a nurse costume. (Scene is from The Dark Knight- one of my favorite movies) Anyway, you can take a look at my makeup on my Instagram page @cecily_mua.
I wanted to quickly share with you guys how I created the scars next to my mouth because it is SO easy- and doesn’t require you to purchase any special fx makeup products. Here’s what you’ll need:
- toilet paper/tissue
- eyelash glue
… Yep. That’s it. Also some color as well of course. I’m gonna brief you in on how to make a scar/gash with these materials.
What you do is, you apply a good amount eyelash glue to the skin where you want your wound first. Next you take the tissue and lay it directly on top of the eyelash glue and tear off little pieces as it is drying. After it is dried and distressed looking, start to fill it in! I literally just took red liquid lipstick and messily put it on the gash, and then after it was dried I went back to add more dimension and depth with darker eyeshadows. Just keep adding/smearing color until you like what you see. What’s nice about doing this is, you can get messy- it makes it more realistic and gory!
That’s it for my quick little post, I am going to hopefully work on the appearance of my page soon and think of some things to post about. If you guys have any suggestions, please please send me a message and let me know. Thanks for reading!
