Melting Skull feat. Pizza & Perrier

Hi beauties! HAPPY (almost) HALLOWEEN

I am so excited to finally show off this fun & exciting collaboration with my blogger babe Maryam Ishtiaq from Pizza and Perrier. Neither of us have ever attempted Halloween makeup but when our girl crush Desi Perkins posted a tutorial on the melting skull- we had to at least try it. It is an inexpensive costume that is relatively easy and perfect for throwing something cool together last minute!


1) We started doing the glam on half of our face first, created the hallows using a liquid liner pen and shaded out the top part. The key is to have the top part of your hallow the darkest and fading it downwards. 
2) Then we took Crayola black paint & shadow to create our nose and moved onto giving ourselves the black eye. (Be careful doing this as eyes are sensitive. Start with layering Maybelline black eyeliner, gel liner & then paint Set with Urban Decay/Colourpop black shadow - we used both)  

3) Afterwards, we used a NYX white eyeliner to outline the areas for our skull. Then taking a paint brush + Crayola white paint we started filling in the other side of our face.

4) Then pain over your lips with the NYX white liner, paint and add in the details with gel liner from Maybelline using a detailer eyeliner brush.

5) Last step! Place the Mehron 3D gel in fleshtone (bought from Amazon) in a cup of hot water and let sit for 2-3 mins. Be careful placing this on your face if it is too hot- it cannot be too cold either otherwise the drips won't fall naturally. Over a sink, we did not squeeze the bottle but simply guided it in the areas we wanted our face to be melted and let the bottle drip by itself. (Sometimes the gel would harden again and we would place the bottle back in the warm water and repeat).


My glam side was done with the following products: 

Foundation - NARS Sheer Glow in Stromboli 
Concealer - Anastasia Beverly Hills highlight stick in Banana
Highlight - Dripping in Gold from That Glow Kit (ABH)
Eyes - Modern Renaissance Palette (ABH). I used Burnt Orange, Cyprus Umbar, Venetian Red in the crease blending each out. Finished the cut crease off with black market shadow from Urban Decay Smokey palette 
Brows - Dipbrow Pomade (Ebony) - ABH
Mascara & Eyeliner - Maybelline Spide Effect / Liquid & Gel liner were used
Shading - To add more depth to the skin melting, I blended in Venetian Red and Red Ochre from the Modern Renaissance Palette. Be sure to blend into the white paint so it creates a gradient. 

I paired my black H&M jeans/tee with a biker leather jacket from Armani and Guess boots. To add some more edge/glam I added a gold/silver necklace. 


 Maryam's glam side was done using the following products: 

Foundation - Revlon PhotoReady 008 (Golden Beige)
Bronzer - Baked Matte Satin Bronzer by Lorac
Highlight - Light Beam from Sephora
Brows - Dipbrow Pomade (Dark Brown) - Anastasia Beverly Hills
Mascara & Eyeliner - Maybelline 
She paired her black boots with leggings and a a knit grey sweater dress from Altr'd State.  To tie the look together for some edge, she added a leather jacket from Wet Seal.
