Stranger Things "Eleven" Makeup Tutorial
Hi, my name is Kelly and I’m a TV show-aholic. With pretty much every new TV show that gets hyped up enough, you will find me devouring it episode after episode. That’s what happened with Stranger Things. I found myself on a binge-watching fest that had me finish the show in two days. That’s what happens when a show lives up to the hype and is filled with enough horror and suspense to keep you at the edge of your seat constantly. It’s also set in the 80’s and I love anything old school, so when a show is said to be reminiscent of an 80’s horror movie and everything from the clothes, to the music, to the big and small props are pretty authentic to the decade, it makes me love it even more. Since Halloween has come and gone, I knew I wanted to share this makeup tutorial anyways.
Eleven is definitely a stand out character on Stranger Things and one of my favourites. Her look is pretty simple so I decided to amp mine up a little bit. Dark circles under the eyes, dirt around the face and a bloody nose are pretty much the key points in recreating this look. Eggo waffles are optional but a definite plus.

Bride of Chucky Tiffany Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Bride of Chucky Tiffany Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Well, hello.. Dolly! The idea of doing a look based on Tiffany from the Bride of Chucky has been on my mind for quite some time. So I thought this was the perfect year to include it in my Halloween Makeup Tutorials!

I crafted this look together twice before coming up with the best and easiest way for anyone to recreate it. The original plan included covering up my brows completely, but I decided to go with a pale shimmery shadow instead that I blended into the brows that faded their colour, so they didn’t stand out as much. This is an easier trick, if you have thin brows and you’re not comfortable with applying glue to your brows to flatten and cover them up.

  1. First, apply a black cream base to your lids and in your crease.
  2. Apply a raspberry pink shadow (I used blush) into your crease with a fluffy brush.
  3. Apply a pale shimmery pink to your brow bone and into your brows.
  4. Place a matte black shadow to your  lids and blend into your crease.
  5. Line your upper and lower lash lines with black liner.
  6. Put on some flirty, spiky lashes.
  7. Apply a black pencil to the top of your brows and follow along to create penciled in thin brows.
  8. Mix a light foundation and an illuminator and apply to your face.
  9. Use a contour stick and accentuate the top of the bridge of your nose, your cheeks and smile lines, and create dimples below your smile (if you don’t have them).
  10. Add beauty mark to your upper lip with a black pencil.
  11. Apply a shimmery pink blush to your cheeks and a soft champagne highlighter to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.
  12. Add a black lipstick to your lips and you’re done!

Beetlejuice Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Beetlejuice Halloween Makeup Tutorial

“Though I know I should be wary, still I venture someplace scary, ghostly hauntings I turn loose: Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!” I’ve loved both the movie and TV adaptation of Beetlejuice for as long as I can remember.  So, it was an obvious decision for me to create my own Beetlejuice Halloween Makeup Tutorial.

Beetlejuice Halloween Makeup TutorialBeetlejuice Halloween Makeup Tutorial

  1. Start off by creating your eye look by applying a reddish burgundy to your brow bone and following along your orbital bone below your eyes.
  2. Add a pale ivory to just below your brows for a bit of highlight and then continue on by applying a purple to your lids.
  3. Add a deeper purple to your crease and along your lower lash line for depth.
  4. Carve out your brows with a green cream colour and add some brown throughout for a bit of depth, then finish off your eyes with mascara.
  5. Apply a grey cream colour to your face and then set with a white or pale cream powder.
  6. Use the same green used on your brows and apply it to your hair and jaw line, corner of your mouth and as a “mossy” contour with a small stippling brush.
  7. Add some texture by putting some yellow and brown cream on top of the green to create more of a mossy/mildew effect.
  8. Draw some cute bugs on your face for some extra, gross fun.
  9. Apply the green cream to your lips and add a bit of the brown cream to the inner portion.
  10. Finish off the look with a set of grotesque teeth and a ratty looking blonde wig and you’re set!
