MELTING ICE CREAM
My second #HalloweenWithLuc look is a melting ice cream inspired by Desi Perkins, she did a melting strawberry ice cream look and I though it was super fun and creative. I adapted Desi’s look because I wanted to use my lilac wig from Annabelles Wigs. You can change the colour of the drips to be whatever you want, but personally I think pastel shades work best. Defiantly check out Desi’s video if you’re thinking of re-creating this look.
I have a couple more Halloween looks that I want to do before Monday so make sure you check back for those.
I started this look by doing the eyes first. For the eyebrows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow in Soft Brown, sculpting around the edges with Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer in SX05. For the eyeshadow I used the Morphe Brushes 35P palette, take a light purple shade and apply it in the crease, using a lighter purple shade all over the lids.
Pro Tip: Keep the eyeshadow light and minimal.
For the eyeliner I used Ingot gel liner in number 77 to create the shape, I added glitter to the liner with the Urban Decay heavy metal glitter liners in Distortion, Glam Rock and ACDC. I used distortion in the inner corners, glam rock in the centre and ACDC on the outer flick for an ombre effect.
Pro Tip: Layer the glitter liners up a bit at a time for an opaque effect.
Before starting the drip effect apply foundation to the lower part of the face, up until the nose.
To create the melting ice cream effect I used Snazaroo face paint palette and mixed red, blue and white together to create a lilac shade. I then took a small angled brush from Charles Fox to create the outline. Starting from the top of the ear, sketching out a rough outline of the drips.
Pro Tip: Use a really thin brush for the outline for a precise application.
Once the outline has been done fill in the rest of the face using the same lilac shade. I find using a stippling brush or a damp beauty blender is easier than a buffing or foundation brush.
Using the same purple eyeshadow shade from the Morphe 35P palette, create a shadow along the edges of the drips, then going in with a white cream paint (I used the white from the Makeup Forever Flash Palette) to highlight, apply this in the areas you’ve created the shadow.
Pro Tip: Use a small brush for a precise application and a blending brush to blend out the edges.
Take a ashy contour shade and apply it underneath every curve, this will give that 3d effect.
Finally for the lips I used Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Virginity.
Purple wig from Annabelles Wigs in Violet.
