One thing you may not know about me is I collect Monster High dolls.. Yeah, it might sound silly but they’re pretty awesome and exciting to collect as a Halloween lover! In case you haven’t heard of them, Monster High is inspired by monster movies and horror flicks and about a bunch of teenage monsters. Frankie Stein is, you guessed it, the daughter of Frankenstein and one of my favourite MH dolls, although it really is hard to choose! I decided to go with a look based on her character for this week’s tutorial!
I always start by working on the eyes since I can easily clean up any fallout as opposed to trying to fix something when I’ve already completed my face. I worked in a beautiful blue by Hard Candy from their feelin’ blue Top Ten Eyeshadow Palette (another palette exclusive to Walmart!) into my crease first and paired it with a green apple shadow on my lids. I incorporated some emerald glitter on top of that and added a little cat eye, as well as some brown glitter liner pencil along the lower lash line. This is one look that I decided to forgo the fake lashes and used Lancome Grandiose to plump up my lashes. I think that mascara does a really good job of giving your lashes the ‘falsie’ look anyways! Then I added a few coats of green mascara to my lower lashes for an added bonus.
The skin was the most challenging part for me. I used a face paint palette I bought from Spirit Halloween and mixed the cyan and white creams together to create the green skin tone. It was a little difficult to blend in some areas but I was able to fix it by lightly adding some of the green apple eyeshadow on top. There wasn’t any blush added but I did use the palette’s black cream and a fine tipped brush to add the stitch below my right eye and the stitches across my neck. The lips were last and created with the combination of a bright pink and a peachy pink.
I bought the wig at the dollar store and quickly found out that you really get what you pay for because it drove me crazy! This look might seem intimidating at first but just go for it and even if there are roadblocks along the way (like the cream palette was for me), just find creative ways to work around it!
