Happy Halloween Curvy Crew,
With Halloween right around the corner and parties galore, I thought that I’d give you a quick and easy costume option, so I went for this Wicked Makeup Look. Elphaba Thropp, the Wicked Witch is one of my favorite villains. I’ve recently started watching “Once Upon a Time” on ABC and I love the look that the actress wears , so I thought I’d go a little more glamorous
The color that the actress wears in the broadway show is from MAC Cosmetics, but I found a cheaper dupe at Nigel’s Beauty Emporium in North Hollywood. For the price of one MAC product, I was about to get a true green and a darker green to use for contour. In the video, I actually never used the darker green, but I plan to use it in some looks very soon. If this look is something that you want to do, purchase water activated face and body paint, as you are able to layer the paint for more pigmentation.
Since this paint is water activated, I suggest setting this really well with a setting spray or instead of using water, use a setting spray to apply this paint, this will help the makeup to last much longer.
Another quick tip, I used green eyeshadows to blend out any blotchiness in the face paint. I recommend getting larger pans of shadow and using a larger brush, this will help the process move along quickly. The most important thing about this look is to have fun, I went for more glam, but you can go for more gore. It’s up to you.
This look was truly fun to do and I can’t wait to push myself even further next year. See below for a full list of products used and don’t forget to check out the video to how how I applied the paint and was able to blend out the blotchy spots!
Wishing you all a safe and Happy Halloween!
