Here are snaps from Halloween 2015! I helped out as a special effects makeup artist for one night Bistro du Vin and finished about 12 faces in approx 2-3 hours. I did “burnt” victims for the first time using tissue paper, eyelash glue, and eyeshadow colors in shades of red and yellow (for pus).
I initially wanted to dress up as a steampunk character but with the tight schedule, I had to churn out something for myself within minutes.
Hence, I came in a DIY skeletal victorian-like getup and opted for a half-face instead. Sorry I didn’t take any images in my full outfit – I had knee-length leather boots!
Looks I did improvised with white paint, black makeup and red lipstick:
For makeup, I used:
– White & black cream base from my go-to costume shop, CCM, in Toa Payoh.
http://www.ccm.com.sg/ I think it was around $30-40+ per cream, but the tub lasts forever
– Black liquid Princess eyeliner, from Daiso, $2
– Black pencil liner
– Silver eyeshadow for the highlights to create more depth
– Lots of brushes in various sizes
