FOTD - Halloween: The Monkey (10/21/10)

Friday, October 22, 2010

So it all began with 'I heard your roommate does facepaint...."

I'm not going to list all of the products for this ridiculousness here, just because I used whatever I had on hand to enhance the look. The brown around the face was outlined with eyeliner, but then filled in with 3 different NYX Jumbo Pencils - brown, black, and white with a little bit of MAC's Cream Color Base in Bronze thrown in for good measure. The brown was laid down first and sealed by patting a matte brown shadow on top. 

All of the black lines on the face were first drawn in with pencil and then gone back over with e.l.f.'s cream liner in black. After some general finagling of the face and the outline, I took an e.l.f. angled liner brush and made rapid strokes all around the face to give the appearance of 'hair'. 

I've got to say that even though I've never done anything like this it was a wild experience and it actually turned out pretty good!

P.S. - My roommate's friend wants to be a monkey ballerina for Halloween. That's right - a monkey ballerina.
