Halloween is fast approaching, and it’s that time when people start picking out their Halloween costumes… This can be a difficult time of year, no doubt. The Internet has raised the bar for Halloween costumes since its inception. The Internet has elevated the standard for Halloween costumes, every year they seem to either become more elaborate or more clever or both. Nearly gone are the days of the simple Halloween costume. So what is there to do?
Thankfully, there is a popular Halloween trend that doesn’t require much of a costume. This is great news! However, it does require a bit of skill. Makeup has become very popular for halloween costumes. Some people use makeup to compliment their costume, others use it as their costume. Because this requires a little bit of time and skill, it may not be easy but your people will recognize how much time and effort you commited. In this video they explain how to achieve a simple, trippy third eye. It is an easy illusion to create, and most importantly, it is inexpensive.
The model begins by explaining she already has foundation on. Using an eyebrow pencil, she begins by drawing an eyebrow on the side of her head. To solidify this illusion, she also uses the eyebrow pencil on her real eyebrows. Then, using a small makeup brush, she draws curves from her fake eyebrow and her real eyebrow to create the sides of the new nose. She then blends eyeshadow around the nose to make both the eyebrows and the sides of the nose look even more genuine.
After adding the two nostrils at the bottom of the nose, she starts on the eye itself using black eyeliner and a very fine makeup brush. She admits that the eye is the most difficult part of the illusion to really nail down. This is because it needs to match up perfectly with your real eye. However, if you take the time, you should be just fine! Once again, she stresses it is important to place similar makeup on your real eye so the two match seamlessly.
Afterwards, the model draws a mouth on her cheek using red face paint to finish the illusion. Using this red paint, the model simply draws a closed, normal mouth. A tiny chin comes next. The finishing touch is a quick touch up of all the areas to make both sides of the face blend seamlessly.
The result is extremely eerie! When half of your real face is covered with long hair, you look like a creepy doll or a deformed woman. To take it to the next level, you can even draw a second face on the other side of your head. You can go to a Halloween party with a total of three faces! What do you think?
