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.
My easiest look! In 3 steps with 3 face paint colors, I was able to create a fox look with minimal effort. If you were going to attempt any look in a pinch, this would be my suggestion. When you go to buy a face paint kit (if you don’t already own one), make sure it has White, Black, and Orange. Also, you need a kit with a brush and a sponge.
As shown in the video, I started with the orange base. Then, I added in the white and made sure the lines mirrored my cheekbones. Lastly, I added in the black. To save time, I did not show how I did this step in my Tik Tok. While the Orange and White steps were done with a sponge, the black was only done with a paintbrush.
Starting in the center of my face, I painted my nose. If you are ever painting an animal nose for Halloween, look up and make sure you paint your nostrils. Secondly, I took the back of the paintbrush and created my dots. I started with the horizontal dots and then added the vertical to make sure they were perfectly centered. Next, I created my lines going down my nose. To finish the look, I painted my eyelids and made sure to create a tiny wing like in the inspiration image.
As I mentioned at the end of my video, my fox look could easily be elevated with makeup. If I was wearing it out, I could have added glitter and eyeshadow to my eyes and lips. Also, I would have made my eyebrows more dramatic and animal-like. There is a chance a more challenging Fox will be part of the group for Halloween 2023.
I rated my fox an 8/10 because I mirrored the inspiration image. Some of my looks started out with lower rating possibility due to difficulty. My fox rated an 8/8 because it would not have been fair to rate such an easy look against some that I spent hours working on. Also, I realize that my inspiration look is lightly photoshopped and I will choose a real makeup look to copy for future years.
Live your life for yourself. People always ask about my intentions for my blog, Instagram, and challenges. Right now, I am just having fun and I hope my challenges are inspiring at least 1 person. If not, having to reflect while creating them, is definitely helping me grow.
