Hi, everyone! Thought I'd give you a peek at what I decided on for Halloween! As of a couple weeks ago I had no idea what costume I'd be wearing this year (to see what I did last year, see here). I sent out a plea to my friends to recommend something that would allow me to play with makeup in a way that was creative, interesting, and fun. A good friend shouted out "Be a creepy doll!". I was smitten with the idea, so that's what I did! My boyfriend had a Halloween party over the weekend, so I eagerly got my look together.
After watching several YouTube tutorials (becoming a creepy doll isn't something that happened organically- I needed some help!), I decided on the essentials- over-sized eyes and lashes, tiny painted lips, vibrant doll cheeks, and a few rips and stitches. I didn't really have an opportunity to practice, so I crossed my fingers, grabbed some false lashes, and took a deep breath. And voila!
I was really happy with the results! The main success was that I was able to blot out my natural brows (using concealer and cream shadow) in order to draw on higher-up, more doll-like brows. I'd seen YouTube gurus achieve this with specialty creams and putties, so I was quite happy to replicate the effect with products I already owned. I was also pleased with how I was able to create the ultimate "wide-eyed" look using some white liner and lashes underneath my natural lash line. And, of course, I perfected my doll pose!
Here are a few more photos of the look:

And a couple extra-creepy ones! :)
If you have any questions about the specific products I used, let me know! I'm happy to break it down.
Have any of you ever tried out a creepy doll look? What are you going as this year for Halloween?
Thanks for reading!
