Hello Everyone, So Today's Halloween fix is Cleopatra! the Queen of Egypt.  I really, really wanted to do this look\tutorial for you guys as I personally love ancient egypt and the pharaohs :)  So this look I took the inspiration from books and Cleopatra pictures for my Cleopatra makeup look, I used as much drugstore makeup as was possible for e.g. the eyes are drugstore based for guys, so easy to recreate if you wish.
So I hope you guys enjoy the intro, tutorial and Picture and till my next halloween production.  Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wta2yeUkG-k

MORTICIA ADDAMS MAKEUP TUTORIAL - HALLOWEEN 2013

Image
Hello Everyone!  So to start of my ever big Halloween productions on my youtube channel I'm starting with my 1st look \ makeup tutorial for you all this year - 2013.  If you've been watching me from the beginning or even from off last year, you know I buy the costumes and wigs and special makeup to do each look well enough and also I add my theatrical edge too :-)  So I had a Halloween Makeup Tutorial Poll up on my Facebook Page, Instragram and my Twitter to ask which themed look you all wanted 1st and Gothic won, So that's why I've done the look for Morticia Addams first up.  Her Mysterious and captivating look is very striking and "pretty" goth looking, I love this look and I hope you enjoy recreating this look with me or just enjoy the video! Watch the TUTORIAL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Yl2_lHcDJk






P.S. Many other "themed" looks coming soon, So there will be something for everyone!! NEXT UP will be My Cleopatra Makeup Tutorial - Coming next…
