Martha's Ghostly Equestrienne Makeup

With makeup in haunting shades, Martha is transformed into a Ghostly Equestrienne.

Materials

  • Makeup brushes
  • A makeup sponge
  • Pale concealer (optional)
  • Liquid foundation (use the lightest shade available)
  • Tinted moisturizer (optional; use the lightest shade available)
  • Buildable white face powder (one that will become more opaque the more you apply)
  • Blush (optional)
  • Red eye shadow
  • Gray eye shadow
  • Black liquid eyeliner
  • Black mascara
  • Gray eye pencil
  • Sheer lip gloss

Steps

  1. Step 1

    If desired, cover blemishes with concealer. For a sheer look, dilute foundation with tinted moisturizer. Use a foundation brush or sponge to apply foundation to face; use sponge to blend foundation into skin and over the jawline onto the neck.

  2. Step 2

    Dot red eye shadow with water to make a liquid paint. Apply eye shadow to eyelids, from the lash line up to the crease; dust dry red eye shadow over paint. Apply gray and white eye shadow (use the white face powder) above the crease, blending as you work upward toward brows to make a grayish pink shade. Sweep gray eye shadow under eyes and up around the outer corners to give the appearance of bags under the eyes. Line the eyes with a black liquid liner, and apply black mascara to lashes.

  3. Step 3

    If desired, apply blush to cheeks. Use a large brush to apply gray eye shadow to contours of cheeks (you can mix in white face powder to get the level of gray you desire).

  4. Step 4

    With a large brush, dust white powder all over face.

  5. Step 5

    Using liquid eyeliner and a very fine brush, draw a scar on cheek. With another fine brush, apply red eye shadow over liner for more dimension.

  6. Step 6

    Line lips and fill in with gray eyeliner. Brush gray eye shadow (in a slightly darker shade) onto lips. Apply sheer lip gloss.
