peek-a-boo

With Halloween just around the corner…and by that I don’t literally mean around a ‘corner’ as opposed to next Thursday, LA College of Creative Arts and our fabulous tutors Aidan Corcoran and Marie-Therese Byrne have decided we go all out before our halloween break!

Today MT (Marie-Therese) gave us a demo of a half-skull/half-pretty inspired look where she used different mediums and put her own spin on it by making it look a little Maleficent-esque! She was also inspired to amp it up by using A LOT of colour. The skull half consisted of dark purple and pink shadows along with white mineral glitter and silver leaf, ‘foil’, which she adhesed to the skull to add some texture and sass, whilst the ‘pretty’ side was your usual face of makeup but with crazy colours to make it unique. MT knows how to keep us enticed throughout her demos by allowing us to try all the products she uses as she applies them and by making her looks so unusual, crazy and creative. What we love best, no?

Lucky for some, today also consisted of heading down to the UCD Campus and helping raise funds for the ISPCC charity along with their Arts Society by providing wee makeovers for passerby’s. We also made over the girls who were getting auctioned off at their other fundraiser, the ‘Slave Auction’, but we may have gotten a little distracted along the way with a bit of our own halloween madness…

The half ‘n’ half face above was completed by myself (skull half) and Karen Glynn (Kim K contoured half)

and our lovely model, Clodagh Power.

Check back here tomorrow for more Halloween Chaos.
