Halloween Haul - Theatrical/FX Kit Items & Shopping List

Hi Bellas,

Are you ready for Halloween?  I am!  I've started planning earlier this year so that you guys can possibly create this look and get your shopping lists ready.  Every year, the tutorials get better and better as I explore new skills, products and I'm super excited to share them all with you.  In today's video, i'll show you exactly what looks I plan on doing and what products I use so that you guys can be prepared for some amazing makeup and costumes this Halloween.

Check out the video!


You all know that I absolute love Graftobian in my kit.  Their glamour makeup is absolutely amazing but they also carry a huge line of FX/Theatrical Makeup.

Check out all the amazing prosthetic pieces.  This is a really great way to get a super dramatic look.  It takes some practice but it's actually easier than creating the skin texture, wounds, etc...by hand.  Apply the prosthetic with liquid latex or spirit gum (I'll show you how to do this), then put makeup right on top to blend it into the skin...add a little bit of blood and grease paint and it looks ridiculously real.




Crepe wool...to simulate fur in my apeman look.

Here are some great accessories for costumes.  Best vampire teeth ever!  True Blood/Vampire Diaries/Twilight tutorials anyone?


These are great basic FX/Theatrical/staple items for your kit, especially if you do Halloween makeup this time of year.  Some of these items are staples that can be used on multiple looks.




Good old mascara and gel liner



Here are some more fun makeup related items.  Graftobian has amazing shimmers and glitters.  Can't wait to use them!

Glitters galore!
Set of luster powders (loose pigments) with coordinating cream bases.
Ever luster powder has it's matching cream base color so that you can pair them together or you can just be crazy and mix and match!
They have brights, neutrals, metallics, basics, every color you need.
Here are a few swatches to show you the pigmentation and vibrancy of a few of the colors.





I also received some fun items from www.HalloweenCostumeswww.HalloweenCostumes.com for my looks.  Expect lots of wigs!  Here are just a few that have come in so far.
