Pastel Neon Skull | Life of Dahlia

Happy Halloween – Pastel Neon Skull Look | Life Of Dahlia

While I don’t really celebrate Halloween (since I live in Australia,) other than the annual watching of Halloween movies, I still wanted to post at least one Halloween look. This look is a somewhat pastel version attempt at Atleeey’s Neon Skull look, you can watch her videos via her Youtube channel and find her on instagram.

Her Halloween looks that she has been doing for Ashtoberfest are amazing and when I saw this look I know I wanted to have a go at trying something like this out.

I don’t have a huge amount of neon eyeshadows so I wanted to go for a more pastel version, even though I added some neon paint on the neck which I admit was an afterthought because I just felt like something was missing. This look had many firsts for me, it was my first time using water activated paints, I used Tag Body Art Paints and I had not attempted something like this before.

I layered eyeshadows from my collection on top of a white base which included the new Chi Chi Pop Princess palette and some loose pigments.

I tried to use minimal editing in these pictures but I did change my eye colour using photoshop because I don’t have access to any coloured contact lenses and I loved how she used some in her look.

Even Though there are a few things I could definitely improve on, I’m really happy with this look seeing as it was my first attempt using water activated body paints. I’ve tried attempting sugar skulls before with cream paints but I feel like water activated are much easier to work with and this kind of skull is so much easier.

Anyway, I just wanted to say a quick Happy Halloween to anyone who’s celebrating, whether its just watch movies like me or having a party. What are your favourite Halloween Movies? I’ve been watching Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands but I also love Nightmare before Chrismas and the Frighteners.

If your going out for Halloween, What are you dressing up as?

Hugs & Kisses
