Halloween Makeup Tutorial | 'Beauty is Pain'

Prepare for the gore of your life! 

I've recently become obsessed with special effects makeup, especially in the lead up to Halloween. Honestly, Australian's aren't typically known for getting into the whole idea of Halloween, at least that's not the way it was when I was growing up. It has increasingly become more of a celebration among younger kids who are now dressing up and taking part in Trick or Treating... of course it becomes a 'thing' as soon as I'm too old for it! 

In saying that though, I know there are a lot of 'grown up' Halloween parties and occasions popping up so I thought I would draw on my more recent love of SFX makeup and I came up with this 'Beauty is Pain' look, that is the perfect amount of glam and gore. 




I absolutely love this Halloween look, because you can still have fun and get into the spirit of all the gore, without having to comprise on looking 'pretty'! Hey, we're all allowed to be a little vain every once in a while.

I've tried to make this look as simple as possible, using only materials and products that you are surely bound to have at home. It's really the icing on the cake that makes this look truly something you can pull off 'last minute' this Halloween.

What do you think of this SFX makeup look? Is it something you might like to attempt for your costume this Halloween or are you not about that gore life?

Happy (almost) Halloween!

  4. This is incredible! And oh so true about Aussies. It's more and more becoming a kiddie thing, a few years back there were parties but these days not so much. Then again I could just be getting old... Regardless this is such a perfect Halloween look. Minimal effort in terms of clothing department since that make-up would be the focal point. I can seriously see you scaring the s*** out of little kiddies though. Muahahahaha!
