Bored Inspiration

Sitting at home today after a short shift at work , just doing the usual browsing on Pinterest ...
Then inspiration strikes !! Wishing I had face paint I settled for some eye and lip liners.
And got to work , I'm kind of bummed this year we aren't able to do "gore " or "zombie makeup at work this year ... Not sure why ? But needless to say I was disappointed. 

This is what I came up with , considering I had no supplies ... Not bad . 

In my opinion 

I obviously played with these top photos to make them look cooler haha but seriously how cool is this face "paint" job !!! Its such an easy thing to do especially for that last minute costume !

Here is a shot I took before I filled in the black part so you can see what a difference it made!

I did the red lips outline first with a red lip liner then drew in the white sharp teeth with a white eye liner . THEN I traced the white teeth with a black eye liner ... At this point I was thinking to myself whats missing ? My Fiance ( the artist that he is ) said to fill in the space between the teeth to mask my lips and cheeks ... SO  I did ... LOL 

Made a huge difference and I was able to make the teeth look even sharper and cooler !!!
I love doing fun random stuff . Here's to the month of October !


  1. I could spend hours browsing Pinterest! It's a great way to get inspired & lose track of time. I think you did a great job with your limited resources!

    1. Thanks !!! Just messing around taking some inspiration from similar phots !

  2. Yeah, it's hard to do you own face paint with stuff like that. It's waaay easier on another person.
