CRUELLA DE VIL DISNEY VILLAIN MAKEUP TUTORIAL - HALLOWEEN 2013

Image
Hello Everyone,
So here's my very last Makeup look for this years Halloween, and it's no other than Disney's classic villain Cruella De Vil, I LOVE this look. It's a mixed look as you can make it look cunning, sultry and then just classic and smokey, it's all about how dark and how much you extend the liner etc.
But for this look I used my love that is the Urban Decay Naked Palette, which was perfect for this look. So if you like a look that's not to over the top and something that's fairly easy to put together as a halloween look then, look no further :)

TUTORIAL: BURLESQUE SPARKLY MAKEUP - HALLOWEEN 2013

Image
Hello Everyone,
Welcome to Burlesque!

This tutorial was very requested for me to do & I thought way not ;)
So for this look I was inspired by whole production of a burlesque show, the lights, the glamour and the "theatre" element of it. So I've made this look dazzle by adding the rhinestones, the glamour by adding the bold eyes and lips and the stage idea by making it a bolder look with massive lashes etc.
I love how this came out and I also kept it 99% Drugstore Makeup so its friendly to replicate for you all, if your interested. Oh and this look is perfect for a party, dress-up, and of course Halloween.
Check out the Look here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_II-N4M-19M
