Halloween series: HOPELESS ROMANTIC (Tim Burton inspired look)

If you're familiar with Tim Burton's movies, you know that the main character is an outcast, probably dead, different looking, grotesque looking, but still pretty, romantic soul and loving person. I just named my character Hopeless Romantic, it represents girl waiting for her princ charming, but never shows up, so she dies, but she still waits for him. That's why she's pale, has wound on her face and her neck and left side of the lips are already sawn together.

This look was totaly insired by Corpse Bride and Sally (Nightmare before Christmas). Mixed both looks together and did my own version.

Firstly, I did my scar with regular glue stick, I let it air dry.
Then I mixed Barry M white foundation with grey and light blue eyeshadow. I applied that colour all over my face and neck with cosmetic sponge and set everything with baby powder. 
I started contouring with grey eyeshadow, went over with darker blue, and went back and forth with both colours to achieve desirable contour shade. I contoured under my cheeekbones, under my jaw line, temples and around my hair line.


I primed my eyes with Too Faced shadow insurance. I applied NYX jumbo pencil in Milk underneath my eyes to make them more doll like and bigger. I set that with matte white eyeshadow.
I lined underneath with Essence gel eyeliner. I started shaping with matte black eyeshadow above my crease line to make my eyes rounder. I blended the edges a little and started applying dark blue eyeshadow inside that black shape I just did.

 

In the center of my eyelids I applied light shimmery eyeshadow, I blended it with darker blue in the outer corner. I applied gel eyeliner on my upper lashline and applied Baci falsies no. 670. 
I applied darker blue eyeshadow around my eyes to make them more three-dimentional.
I cut eBay false lashes and applied them underneath my "fake" eye.


I used dark blue eyeshadow to draw on eyebrows. (I was to lazy to cover them, it takes too much time with my eyebrows). I highlighted the highest points of my face to make them stand out.
I decided to do lips in heart shape to go with romantic theme. I outlined them with Artdeco lipliner no 91 and applied Catrice lipstick in Frozen Rose in the center. On the other parts of my lips I applied light blue eyeshadow.


The only "romantic" dress that I have is this from H&M, I love it to pieces. I decided to combine it with this (also H&M) scarf with roses, again to go with the romantic theme. I wore black tights and black peep toe Schuh shoes.


 

I applied pinkish blush from NYX, because I still blush whenever I think of my loved one.

I applied darker blue eyeshadow around my wound to make it more realistic, and applied dark red and black in the center. Lastly, I applied fake blood (made with agave nectar, cocoa and strawberry aroma for food) and some stitches on my neck and on the left side of my lips. For that I used gel eyeliner. I totaly messed up, when I tried to apply some dark blue shadow to make it more realistic, because eyeliner wasn't dry yet. *sigh*

"I saved this rose for you, my love."
(I got this rose with a cocktail in Spain and saved it :])

Happy Halloween!!

  3. Zakon ideja, da si naredila mix dveh likov. :) Roža odlično paše zraven. Liki Tima Burtona so res posebni in odlično sovpadajo s haloweenom.
