It’s time for another HalloweenTeaParty look! Today it’s (in case you didn’t guess from the thumbnail and the title) a Cracked Doll look, and it’s completely drugstore. What is it about old dolls that makes them so creepy? Do you think back in the day parents were just being massive trolls and giving their kid the creepiest thing they could find?
Here’s some tips for this look, and the product list will follow.
- If you put a hole over your eye like I did then you have to keep your eye closed (or wear one sclera) to get it to look like a hole.
- If you decide to go over the eye anyway, make sure you set whatever you use for the black (gel liner works well) with a black eyeshadow to help avoid creasing.
- The bottom row of lashes are on upside down so they curve outwards like those dolls with blinking eyes.
- Use a nude liquid to matte lipstick on the part of your lips that aren’t red, it’s designed to stay put on your lips. If you use concealer and you’re heading out in this then take along your concealer for touchups.
- For the freckles press straight down, twist, and lift straight up to get nice sharp points.
- For the holes and cracks, make sure the holes have corners, then you can start the cracks coming off of them.
- The cracks are just a bunch of random lines coming off the holes, cracks tend to be angular so avoid being to swirly with your brush, split some of the cracks, give some of them their own little holes, and when you reach the end of a crack slowly decrease the pressure on your brush and lift it so you get that nice skinny tail.
Products To Use
- Either a matching foundation, or a lighter foundation if you want to go for the porcelain doll style look. If you’re going lighter, I’d go for heavy coverage for this look and stick to your own undertone, or go for a cool undertone.
