Skull Halloween Makeup Tutorial | Real Techniques | Benefit Cosmetics UK

Real Techniques partnered with Benefit Cosmetics UK to create this spooky skull makeup just in time for Halloween. Check out the tutorial and try the look for yourself!

Sam from Pixiwoo teaches us how to create a dark, shadowy skull makeup look using makeup from Benefit Cosmetics UK and Real Techniques brushes! Start by applying Hello Flawless foundation in a slightly paler shade using the Expert Face brush. Take Hoola Bronzer and apply evenly over the eyelids using the Medium Shadow brush from the Enhanced Eye Set. Using the Big Beautiful Eyes palette with the Shading brush, work color into the lash line to create a smokey eye. Darken eyes by applying the BADgal Waterproof Eyeliner on the bottom waterline and They’re Real pushup liner on the top line.

Once the eyes are set, use a Miracle Complexion sponge to add more foundation to cover any color fallout from the eyes. Apply Boi-ing industrial strength concealer underneath the eyes with the Expert Concealer brush to contrast the darkness of the eyes. Go back to your Hoola bronzer to add in more color to the contours of the cheeks up to the forehead and down to the mouth using the Buffing brush. Blend with the Setting brush so color is sharp but seamless. Use the BADgal liner to create lines on the lips that connect to the cheeks for a full skull effect.

    When makeup artists use a shade darker than your everyday shade as their Halloween makeup you know you’re pale AF.

    Just bought the eye enhancement brush set yesterday at Walmart, and honestly can’t wait to use it. If it’s real techniques, then you can’t go wrong. This look was super dope, and I’m totally digging it. I love skulls anything though lol. I love how you pay attention to detail ❤❤
