We are now entering October which means we are approaching the spooky season! This means surely you will be wanting to try a new Halloween look? I have created a step by step guide to one of my favourite and most simple looks, and I have included pictures to help you out! Turn over to get started.

Step 1: First, I used the Illusions Liquid Latex and applied it to the neck. I then added small pieces of ripped tissue. I built the layers of tissue up and waited for it to dry. TIP: Don’t worry if it doesn’t look neat because it’s supposed to look gory.
Step 2: I cut the tissue to where I wanted the slit to be – be careful here! As the latex dries, it becomes an elastic texture which makes it easier to make it look like flappy or ripped skin.
Step 3: I then used the Milani 2 in 1 Foundation as a base. I mixed the foundation with the white cream to match it more to my model’s skin tone and so it makes it easier to blend. I then used the LA Girl Pro Concealer over the top, which I then set with the RMCA setting powder and the Benefit Hello Flawless Compressed Powder which I patted into the latex. I applied the products with a foundation brush and a disposable sponge.
Step 4: I then used the Morphe 350 Natural Glow Eyeshadow Palette to create a red background around the cut; I used an eyeshadow blending brush. I then used a lighter brown shade as I worked further into the cut. As I reached the inner corners of the cut either side, I used the fake blood. I also blended this inside the cut and I added drips of fake blood around the outside to give a natural effect.
Step 5: To finish if off I used a dark brown shade at the top and bottom of the cut to give it definition and detail.
And there we have the finished product. As you can see, this is a super easy, realistic Halloween make up tutorial that you can create with products from your everyday make up bag – all you need is some liquid latex and fake blood which you can find online. This can also be recreated on other parts of your body, like your face or arms if you’re going for a zombie vibe!
