Halloween Look to Die For: Lizard Queen

Last-minute party? No problem! Just use our highly-pigmented Pop Art Extreme – 24 Color Pressed Pigment Palette on face and body for this bold reptilian look.

REVISED - LIZARD QUEEN LOOK

  1. Prime face & eyes, then apply your favorite BH Cosmetics foundation.
  2. Contour and highlight using the BH Cosmetics Contour & Blush Palette. Sweep the color that best suits your skin tone from your cheekbones up to ears. Using a lighter color, highlight under eyes, nose, brows, and chin.
  3. Using a smudge brush & working in a circular motion, apply small dots of white shadow from eyebrows up to your hairline. Do the same from cheekbone to ear. Outline each dot with black liquid eyeliner to create a scaled effect.
  4. Working in the same pattern, apply bright yellow shadow on top of the white color. Leave some dots whiter and make others more yellow to create depth.
  5. Use a smudge brush to apply yellow shadow to eyelids, then use a liner brush to apply it under eyes.
  6. With a blending brush, apply the same yellow shade in horizontal lines across your neck (mimicking a reptilian pattern). Taper the lines to form a “v” shape as you reach the base of your neck, then sweep yellow shadow across each collarbone. Add depth by blending a bright green shadow over the top of each horizontal line, then outline with black liquid eyeliner for a scaled effect.
  7. Line upper and lower lash lines with black liquid eyeliner, creating a dramatic winged effect. Blend a deep charcoal-colored shadow from undereye to temple, then blend the same shade from inner eyebrow down toward your nose.
  8. Apply two coats of Long Sexxy Lashes – Lengthening Mascara to top and bottom lashes
  9. Line lips heavily with Pop Art Lipstick in “Crash”, then blend inward to create an ombre effect.

Extreme Color. Every Day.
