One of the things we love the most about Halloween is seeing all the weird and wonderful makeup creations. Whether you’re a professional MUA or you’re a makeup newcomer, Halloween can be the perfect opportunity to display your creative talents. If you’re attempting to dabble with SFX this year or just need a quick, fail-safe look for the 31st, then we’ve got the tutorial for you. Follow @alice_crue’s step-by-step guide to create a gruesome cut on the cheek using SFX makeup.
Next, take the Mehron Paradise Makeup AQ 8 Color Palette Basic and mix plenty of water with the red shade. Apply this to the centre of the indentations in the wax, using a fine liner brush.
Now it’s time to add some blood. Take some of the Mehron Coagulated Blood Gel and apply to the cuts. The trick here is to remember that less is more – too much blood will make it look less realistic.
