Halloween is just around the corner (yippee!) and it’s definitely time to start costume planning. The Medusa look is an amazing choice, not only because it’s relatively easy to achieve but because it’s something a little different from the hundreds of zombie, witch and red devil looks you’re bound to stumble across. Luckily for you (if you’re planning a Medusa look, of course!) I’ve provided a helping hand with this do-able make up tutorial!
All of the products I used are available from Tesco Direct, or in Tesco stores. Perfect for picking up when you’re doing your weekly shop!
One thing I loved about creating this look is that it’s the kind of thing you could create with minimal stress and hassle. There’s nothing worse than getting all dressed up for Halloween, sitting down to do your make up and getting totally flustered as it’s just too tricky. My Medusa look uses simple and straightforward techniques to create effective results – I actually think the finished look is quite pretty!
It’s always much easier to watch a make up tutorial than to explain it in writing (which is why I’ve included the video link above!) but I wanted to share a couple of extra bonus tips in this post!
- Get as creative as you like with the fishnet technique. I used it to create an asymmetrical look on either side of my face, but think it would also work wonderfully to put a spooky twist on emphasising the cheekbones (as I did on one side), or making an awesome pattern on the forehead. Play around and find which look you love most!
- Don’t give up on the false lashes. I know falsies can be tricky to apply, but they totally make a dramatic look pop. Spend some time before the night of your Halloween outing practising getting them just right, and I promise it will be worth it!
- Don’t forget to top up your lip make up. When you’re out and about for Halloween, sipping drinks inevitably leads to your lip make up fading. When it’s a bold colour like black, this is super noticeable so be sure to keep your products handy for those little top ups.
What/who are you dressing up as this Halloween? I’d love to know!
