VLOGOWEEN | Possessed Makeup

IMAG0005


 

“I wanted to create a look that’s super easy and quick for people to recreate for Halloween, yet it still looks super effective, and it’s very affordable to do!”

For this look I did use professional grade products, mainly cream products. My full product list is below but of course you can buy cheaper Halloween cream makeup from the Halloween stores to recreate this look, I just prefer not to use it because of the quality of the makeup and how it reacts with my skin. If you do have the money I would suggest investing in more professional grade quality, to stop the risk of having awful breakouts from the cheap makeup.

IMAG0004FULL PRODUCT LIST:

  • Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation: 1 Light Beige
  • Kryolan Supracolor (all shades I used): 072, 079, 082, 046, 517, 091, 070
  • Kryolan Classic Lipstick: LC171
  • Baby Powder

As you can see, this is a very simple look that barely requires any products. If your budget is tight, you could always use fewer shades of the Supracolor that I did. I chose to use so many different shades because I feel it’s important to include different tones in looks like this.

If you do recreate this look then please do share it with me via Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. I’d love to see what you guys come up with!

 

 

SHARD OF GLASS: REVIVAL!

Hello my loves,

I thought because Vlogoween is fast approaching I’d check in with you all to say hello and let you know what I’m up to in preparation for the huge experience that’ll be: Vlogoween. Currently I’ve just been refurbing my YouTube channel with some new bits to help you find the right video.

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 15.29.36As you can see, I’ve added some playlists that’ll grow over time on the home page of my channel currently I’ve only got two: ‘Phobia Series’ and ‘Special Effects/Prosthetics’ and I’ll keep adding to these videos as an when they’re uploaded. Keep an eye out though as they’ll be plenty more playlists added soon!

Secondly, I’ve invested some money into a programme called ‘Motion’ it’s available from the Mac App Store, and it’s going to enable me to create some modified bits and pieces rather than just the basic effects, text and transitions that Final Cut Pro X has to offer. Although I love Final Cut Pro, I feel that Motion will allow me to really improve my video intro’s and this means they’ll be more theatrical and hopefully more scary! I’m going to create another Vlogoween trailer with this programme once I’ve got to grips with it so you can get more of an idea of what to expect from my videos in the future.

I knew I’d end up leaving tutorial filming to last minute again! But fear not I’ve got a full two weeks of work coming up in which I’ll be spending that time editing these videos to perfection, currently I’ve got the follow tutorials filmed:

  • Adele Inspired ‘Drag’
  • Phantom of the Opera: Christine
  • Trixie the Clown
  • Possessed: Demon
  • Serial Killer: Dolly

But I’m planning on doing AT LEAST THREE or FOUR more tutorials, I want to try and cram as many tutorials into this Halloween series as possible because I really love Halloween and it’s the time of the year I’m most inspired. I hope your all keeping well and am as excited about Vlogoween as I am!

Take Care! Harley. X

Something’s Coming…

I’m glad to say I’m finally back chatting to you all about everything from halloween tutorials, makeup, reviews, scare acting and more! I’ve decided I didn’t just want to blog about makeup and my YouTube channel, but everything else too. I hope it’ll be useful and fun for subscribers of my channel to read as I tend to disappear for months from YouTube, but I am hoping to change that very soon and become regular again.

Halloween’s fast approaching and on ‘Shard of Glass Makeup’ on YouTube something’s coming, watch this video to find out some more..

So there you have it! Keep your eye out for whats happening throughout October because I’m going to be releasing a new video everyday. I’ve been working so very hard on making my tutorials top notch for this Halloween, I’ve even tried something completely different, BEAUTY makeup! I literally barely ever do beauty makeup because I was never confident with it, but there are two tutorials involved (currently anyway, there maybe more!) that are both beauty makeups. I really hope you enjoy the series and I’ll be hopefully writing blog posts for every tutorial I do on my channel now, going into detail about the characters, variations, and a bit more about the products I used.

Happy Halloween (I know it’s September, but it’s never to early to say it!)

 

 

 

Kryolan Supracolor 24 Palette | Review

When I started out as a makeup artist, I saw so many people on YouTube raving about this product and I was itching to try it. So when I had the chance to buy it from Charles Fox in London, I jumped at the chance. This palette retails at around £50 depending on where you get it and it includes 24 colours. There is also the option to buy this product with just 12 colours in too.

This is my palette, excuse that it’s not very tidy, but I’ve been using it lots lately. I did lots of research on different ways to use this palette and I wanted to try lots out before reviewing it. I’ve done a SFX look with this which simulated deep cuts using just this paint, using the white and black to highlight and contour. It worked amazingly for this and instantly fell in love with it. I’ve also used this palette in theatre, for live close up work and some film work.

The colour pay off from this palette is amazing (as you can see from the swatches above) and it can be blended out really nicely, they can be made very subtle or very bright. I really like using the bright colours for clown looks because of the way they pop. The only thing that can annoys me about the palette is that it can smudge really easily and will definitely need setting with a makeup setting spray or a translucent powder. I definitely think this palette is worth a try though and it has many different uses.
This concludes my first post on here. I hope you enjoyed reading 🙂
Keep it creepy!
Harley.
