To embrace Halloween to the fullest this year, I decided to do 10 days of Halloween makeup. To read about my process, read this post.
I have always been inspired by @beatsbylizzie‘s looks. She is so remarkable. We were lucky enough to have plans with friends at an ABBA night in Denver. I was so happy to have a reason to go out in this makeup. By doing makeup looks and watching videos for a few days in a row, I already felt my skills growing.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is about the order makeup should be done in. If I had not been watching this video, I would have started straight with the eyeshadow. Since my eyeliner took a few tries, it would have been a disaster. Watching Lizzie start with the graphic eyeliner and seeing how she drew the fake eyelashes really helped me copy the look. Videos are making all the difference.
I rated my look a 10/10. I have never been prouder of myself to complete such a strong and mostly even makeup look. I hope that my skills keep growing and that I will be able to conquer more difficult looks as I go.
Do a little research before your next challenging task. Understanding other people’s process helps guide your decisions and will ultimately provide a stronger outcome.
