Fall is coming guys! And we all know what that means -no, not the Pumpkin Spice Lattes- but HALLOWEEN is coming! Which, of course, is one of the best times of the year. So to kick it off I’ve decided that I’m going to branch out and try to get some more makeup looks here on my blog. Naturally I had to start with a Joker-Inspired makeup look that’s a bit more, uh, wearable than a full Joker face. Now obviously this isn’t appropriate for say, a formal office setting. But a night out on the town or maybe a party (or if your work place is ok with wild makeup) this would be great.
I really wanted to touch back on his purple and green scheme, so for my eyes I went for a bright green base and a purple crease, accented with dark purple, green and shimmery purple eyeliners. And of course, we couldn’t forget that signature red lip. 😉
- Urban Decay Eye Primer
- Bordello (lightest crease shade) by UD
- Flash (bright purple crease shade) by UD
- Tornado (dark purple outer V shade) by UD
- Grasshhopper (green lid shade) by UD Vice Palette
- Retrograde (dark purple top lid liner) by UD 24/7 Liquid Liner
- Emerald Isle (dark green top lid liner) by Model Launcher
- VooDoo (purple shimmer lower lash liner) by UD 24/7 Glide On Pencil Liner
- Supercurl Curling Mascara by UD
- Cherry Skies (deep red lip cream) by NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick
Note: I didn’t put down what products I used for my foundation/etc, simply because the focus in this look are the eyes and lip.
I first started by coloring in my crease with Bordello to get a nice purple fade going, followed by Flash to brighten it up and intensify the purple. After those were faded in nicely, I used Tornado to darken the outer V crease of my eye. Then, using lots of the shade Grasshopper, I filled in my lid with the bright slightly-shimmery green to pay the proper homage to Joker. Once everything was blended in properly, I lined my top lash line with Retrograde (a great dark purple liquid liner) and then lined it again with Emerald Isle to bring more green into the look. Then it was as simple as using Voodoo to line my lower lash line and popping on Urban Decay’s Supercurl Curling Mascara to finish the eyes. And for the lips I used Cherry Skies, a beautiful cream/matte lipstick by NYX.
I’m still getting the hang of photographing makeup looks…lol anyone have any tips? I’m always open to pointers! But in the meantime, I hope you guys like this Joker-inspired makeup look, I hope to do a Harley-inspired look as well as some more Halloween-ready versions as well.
