Halloween is nearly here!!
I noticed that the most hits on my blog are coming from people searching for Medusa makeup, so I thought i’d post up a few pictures of my attempt and explain how I created it!
This is my version of Medusa …
The makeup that I used to create this look is as follows
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
Benefit ‘Hello Flawless’ Powder Coverage
Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder
Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Mildew, Kush and Bender
Urban Decay Stardust in Griffiths
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Perversion
Stargazer Eyelashes in 13
Stick on green crystals from craft store
To create this makeup, I placed a pair of fishnet stockings over my head and used the various green eyeshadows to make a winged out shape out over my temples. I didn’t do this in any particular colour way, I just made sure that I matched each side by doing the same colours in the same places.
I went over the entire area with Urban Decay Stardust to make it all glittery and applied lashings of black eyeliner to the upper and lower lashes and both the waterline and the tightline, bringing the liner to a point on the inside of my eye.
I used green stick on gems from a craft store to go around the outside of the design and add extra sparkle.
I made my head-dress from a Tiara band, pipe cleaners, paper mache, green paint, green glitter spray and red stick on gems for the snakes eyes!!
I hope you have fun creating your Halloween look for 2012!
