Poison Ivy

I was inspired by Taya from My Little Beauty World for this look. She’s doing a Halloween series, and the moment I saw her Poison Ivy, I started getting ideas. Being a huge Batman fan, it was only natural to make my own version of my favourite female villain.

IMG_4829I didn’t have any small green plants laying around, but I still wanted to incorporate something 3D into my makeup, so I made these paper cutouts to represent leaves. I love how they turned out!

To give the cutouts some contrast, I blended the two eyeshadows well to give a softer effect, but still making a statement with strong pigments and triangular shapes.

I added some black eyeliner to blend the eyelashes better, then extended it towards my temples and connected it with my eyebrows to give a bit more shape and definition.

For the lipstick, I tried to create a colour that would be the perfect match for the hair. I mixed three different lipsticks together, and now I wish this was a colour I could buy …

I loved wearing this look. I don’t even like parties, but I still wish I had a Halloween party to go to. And I’m happy it photographed so well! Sometimes makeup disappears in photos, but here it really stands out.

What I found quite disappointing, though, was when I had to take it all off, and I ended up feeling so…basic afterwards. 😬
