Never trust a wolf. Halloween makeup look.

I originally said that I was only doing two Halloween looks but I couldn’t resist posting another. This is my Halloween costume ready for Saturdays Halloween party so I decided to have a makeup test run as wounds can be really tricky to get right. I am a complete novice when it comes to makeup, especially FX makeup so I definitely need more practice!. This is my take on little red riding hood gone wrong!.




Products used in this look-


To make the wounds I used PVA glue and layered tissue on top, once you have built enough layers let it dry until its a tacky texture. Then using a pair of tweezers start tearing a whole in the middle, folding the tissue up as you making it look like torn skin.

I then applied foundation to the wounds as well as the rest of my face to look like the rest of my face. Then using nude eyeshadow to deepen the colour of the scars, red eyeshadow to make the wounds look sore and black on the edges and inside of the wounds to add depth and make them look dirty and bruised. Add some gel blood and you have a gross wound.

    I was thinking of doing a Red Riding Hood costume this year but then opted for different ones, but I’l truly digging the FX makeup! I don’t have much experience doing FX type wounds either, but I recently did a zombie look for the very first time that turned out creepy enough (that even my own bf didn’t want to kiss me! 😦 haha ).

        Hahahhahaahah well I used like transparent wood glue, the only glue I had at the time, and I didn’t wet it at ll, I only got a corner loose and pulled and the rest followed. What glue did you use. Well I’m sure it was worth the pain, because it looked amazing!
