Halloween Tutorial: Death

Hello Darkness My Old Friend

To kick start my Halloween tutorials I thought I’d start with a small duo series, Life and Death. I wanted to try and challenge myself this week and use something for the teeth which wasn’t false nails. As it turns out I had my CD jar on my desk while I was planning out this look, and it occurred to me that CD fragments would look awesome as teeth replacements.

I want this small duo series to be complete opposites. Death will be (is) very morbid and dark, while life will be very bright and cheerful

I’ll have a tutorial on the crown on my second channel┬ánext Tuesday, it’s really easy to make, and if you don’t want to use real dried flowers you can substitute them for fake ones. As for the teeth, obviously, be careful with them, don’t make them too small and when you’re cutting up the CD wear goggles and gloves. It is very possible to cut yourself if you’re not careful.

Taking The LightSweet EscapeI Look Like Death

In this tutorial I used a lash glue to stick the teeth down, but if you don’t have that you could also use, latex, scar wax or sculpt gel. I forgot to mention it in the video, but I put in my lenses last just because they’re not the easiest things to see through. Though if I do this I always apply the eyeliner after I’ve put on the lenses, the last thing you want is makeup trapped on your eye. Trust me, it’s not comfortable or good for your eyes.

I hope you like the tutorial :)

    I’m excited to see how you made the headband. I dry and save all the flowers my boyfriend gives me for valentines, birthdays, apologies etc and this could be an awesome way to use them some day
