R.I.P David Bowie Glam Rock

David Bowie is one of the most celebrated glam rock stars. This legendary face painted album cover is also one of the most recognized photos of his. Do the face painting with mohawk hair. Metallic bomber jacket with a band tee, thin silk scarf, 80s harem pants, golden sneakers and cool fedora hat. If you have an electric guitar? Perfection.

Red Lipstick Face Draw Pajama Party

This could be most budgeted choice out of all, yet still highly effective and noticeable look. Just draw red lipstick on your face which is already half Halloween enough. Wear your bathrobe short or long and sexy hot red heels. If you have a satin sleep mask, wear on the head. Add more items as you wish. Be creative.

Future Dystopia Techno Girls 

These looks are from the Maison Margiela A/W 2016 runway collection. You remember Effie from the movie the hunger games? Who designed and dressed Katniss for galas? This collection reminds me of that and full of the looks that Effie would wear without a doubt. Futuristic hair spray hardened techno hairs, silver grey metallic makeups and accessories are pretty much only stage appropriate in our daily life, but maybe these could be what we will be wearing in the future.

Silver Platinum glitter was the main color here so gather all your silver and white metallic makeups. Excessively tease, volumize and hair spray your hairs for beehive style. Wear plastic saran wrap as choker. Wear one chandelier statement earring and fishnet stocking over your shoes for spider web effect.

Grunge Rock Groupies

These are from the A/W 2016 Saint Laurent runway looks. This vintage grunge rock star and their groupie fashion collection by Hedi Slimane was big on leathers, furs, animal prints and plenty of metallic glitters. Get animal prints furs, 80s high shoulder pads, vintage dress and boots. And biggest buckle belt you have.

The makeups were done using with glitter powders on eyes, especially the red. Use your eyeshadow brush and apply vaseline to draw on your eyelids and wing ends. Apply glitter dust on top of vaseline with another brush. Let the glitter powder fall on your under eyes for sparkling look. Apply eyeliner to express more dramatic winged eyes.

You can also try this new Lip Foil look which is very popular right now and lip foils makeup looks were recently spotted on the Jeremy Scott Spring 2019 runway.

Makeup artist uses lip liner pencil to line the lips. Apply eyelash glue on the lips to prime and add metallic art foil sheets on top and peel away the base sheet. Apply glitter lipsticks on the missing spots and overall to perfect and finish the look. There is this product called lip rock metallic foils but currently unavailable (available in UK) and people are having hard time achieving results with it. 

Or you can apply metallic lipstick, glue and add the foil piece on top of glued lips like this youtube tutorial. (It wasn't perfect but you get the idea). You can also use glitter powder instead of foil pieces. 

 

I hope you find this blog post useful and

Happy Halloween!
