My favourite action movie this year was Mad Max and when I ended up playing with some black paint and fake blood, I had no idea it would turn out this way. I posted the look on instagram and asked what I should called the tutorial and people immediately said it reminded them of Mad Max Fury Road’s Furiosa.
This look is very easy to achieve and doesn’t require much makeup. Watch the tutorial below and find out how you can get effortlessly scary looking for Halloween this year.
Mad Max Inspired Halloween Make Up – Furiosa
- Desio contact lenses in Forest Green
- CoverGirl truBLEND Liquid Makeup in 5M with Marcelle Ultra Gentle Moisturizing Cream
- Black makeup (some generic stuff)
- NYX jumbo pencil Black Bean
- Wet n Wild Color Icon Eye Shadow Collection, Blue Had Me Hello
- AVON Makeup Setting Spray
- NYX Cosmetics High Definition Blush in Taupe
- Hard Candy Top Ten Eyeshadow Pinking of You
- Makeup FX fake blood from Shopper’s Drugmart
Apply foundation and set as per usual to create an even base. Opt for a neutral lip colour with a matte finish or simply mute out the lips with foundation. Use a cool toned blush or contour powder such as NYX blush in Taupe to contour the cheeks, nose and jaw line.
Using black costume makeup to fill in the contours of the eyes with a makeup wedge, similar to a Sugar Skull makeup look. Apply a matte black shadow all around the eyes including the upper and bottom lids and inner corners. With product left on the brush, blend the eyeshadow and black makeup outwards and using flicking motions, fade out the perimeter of the black makeup. Line the upper and lower waterlines and the inner tear ducks with black pencil liner to ensure that no flesh is peeping through.
Use a burgundy or a red tinted shade (of either eyeshadow or blush) to blend around the edges of the look. Finally, dab fake blood under the eyes and use moderate flicking motions to spread the blood around in an irregular fashion.
That’s it! I would recommend an all black, military green or camel coloured attire to accompany this look with some bulky boots – somewhat like Furiosa!
What will you be dressing up as this Halloween?
