Halloween | Grayscale Tutorial

I don’t know about you but I love 1920’s era. The style, the make up, whats not to love. So I decided that I’d do a Halloween tutorial that isn’t that common. I wanted to look like I walked out of a black & white photo.

Follow these steps to look like you walked out of a black & white movie.

1. Make sure you moisturize your face because face paint is quite drying. I also popped Benefit’s Porefessional to make sure my skin was smooth and even.

2. I then took a grey face paint and applied it all over my face making sure that all your flesh colored skin is covered.

3. Blend EVERYTHING with a beauty blender. Can’t emphasize how important it is to blend so you don’t ruin the illusion!

4.   With a fluffy eyeshadow brush I took a black eyeshadow and blended it into the crease.

5. Using the same black eyeshadow I filled in my eyebrows.

6.  I then applied a thick cat eye. Starting it at the very start of the inner corner to the end of my brow.

7. I didn’t want any flesh showing so I made sure I applied black liner to my bottom lash too.


8. Using the same black eyeshadow I contoured under my cheekbone with a fluffy brush and blended it as much as I could. As careful as I could, I also contoured along the bridge of the nose and blended with an eyeshadow brush. I contoured because I wanted to define my face more!

9. Last but not least I added black lipstick to give the illusion of lipstick in a photograph!

There we have it! I loved creating this look on myself and I’d love to see any of your recreations do tag me on Instagram @makeupdontfakeup or on  Facebook https://www.facebook.com/makeupdontfakeup
Until next time,
happy reading & tea drinking,
