Halloween Makeup Tutorial – Pirate

Ay Matey,

To celebrate #ThrillerThursday I wanted to show you a step-by-step thrilling new look on what I think a Pirate should look like. Grunge with a twist of sexy.



Pirate Steps 1-16

  1. Prime eyes with Bare Escentuals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow in Radiant Sand. Place tape in a diagonal starting towards the nose and ending near the ears.
    • This will help give you a clean and sharp edge.
  2. Apply Makeup Geek eyeshadow in Crème Brulee in the upper crease using a Morphe M330 blending brush.
  3. Using Morphe M433 Blending Flush Brush, apply Morphe #14 eyeshadow in lower crease. These will be your transition colors.
  4. Using the Morphe 28S palette – take dark brown shadow with Morphe M433 brush and apply right on top of #14 Morphe eyeshadow. Use Morphe M330 brush to blend out edges.
  5. Using the Morphe 28F Palette, take dark brown shadow and press in outer corners using pencil brush and blend with Morphe M433 brush.
  6. Apply NYX Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in Walnut with Sally Girl Glitter Glue on entire eyelid using TNT Cosmetics 135 brush. Do not go above crease.
  7. Apply Makeup Geek Corrupt in outer corner in a V shape using pencil brush.
  8. Remove tape and clean any fallout from eyeshadow with a makeup wipe.
  9. Apply NYC liquid liner in wing along the top eyelid.
  10. Prime face with Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch and apply your foundation. I am using Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation with Real Techniques Stippling Brush.
  11. Using Santee 3-in-1 concealer palette, apply orange shade underneath eyes in a triangle and blend using Morphe MB12 brush.
  12. Using the same exact techniques apply MAC Prolong Wear concealer. I am using Shade NC 42. Highlight bridge of the nose, center of forehead, and chin with the same MAC concealer.
  13. Go back and buff out edges of concealers with the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. You do not need to add more foundation; just use what is left over on the brush.
  14. Set under eye area and highlighted points with Ben Nye Banana Powder using Real Techniques Setting Brush.
  15. Set the rest of your face with setting powder (I am using Cover FX Blotting Ppowder in shade Medium) with Real Techniques Blush brush.
  16. Fill in brows with MAC Fluid Line in shade Dip Down. Set with dark brown shadow. I like to use the powder from the Benefit BrowZingz kit.                                                                                                                                                                                                        Pirate Steps 17-29
  17. Line bottom lash line with black eyeliner (I’m using Two Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof eyeliner in Perfect Black). Be generous. Tight line upper lash line with same black liner.
  18. Using dark brown shadow from Morphe 28F Palette, smudge out black eyeliner using pencil brush.
  19. Blend lower lash line using a clean Morphe M433 brush and Morphe eyeshadow in shade 14.
  20. Using Bdellium Tools Small Shader brush 755, apply Makeup Geek Corrupt eyeshadow closest to lashes on lower lash line.
  21. Using Clinique True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer in shade 04, Sunswept, bronze cheeks and forehead and a little underneath the jawline using Bdellium Tools 964 brush.
  22. Using Bdellium Tools 945, slightly contour cheeks with MAC Powder Blush in shade Blunt. Apply to forehead as well.
  23. Apply Benefit’s Rockateur, apply to apples of cheeks using Bdellium Tools 964 brush.
  24. Highlight the cheeks, tip of the nose, and cupid’s bow with Morphe IB120 Kabuki Fan brush and Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in shade Tiki.
  25. Also highlight brow bone and inner corner of eyes with Hard Candy’s Tiki highlighter and Shany Cosmetics 13 brush.
  26. Line and fill in lips with Mahogany lip liner from MAC.
  27. Apply Revlon Color Stay Ultimate Sway Lipstick in Shade 035 Backstage to lips.
  28. Apply a coat of mascara to the top and bottom lashes. I’m using Diorshow mascara in black.
  29. Apply lashes in Number 117 and your look is complete…matey.
