Vampire Makeup Revisited
I wanted to revisit my first ever Halloween makeup tutorial I uploaded in 2008, which was a Vampire look. I've always had the hankering to re-film that video because there were many elements I just wasn't happy with: it's incredibly long, the fangs are horrible, and my technique was nowhere where it is today.
This year I decided it's finally time to film a new and updated vampire look, but using many of the stylistic elements of my initial video. I liked the overall concept I had come up with, using glitter on the eyes, the dark violet lips, and the dramatic eyes that went beyond merely black eyeshadow which I find a bit unimaginative - but I wanted it to look even more theatrical and artistic.
I'm very pleased with how it came out! What do you think?
