Halloween Makeup: American Horror Story Nun

Hi Bellas,

Happy Halloween season!  I'm super excited to start my Halloween tutorials with a bang by giving you a super creepy, but surprisingly easy look to achieve.  When I was searching for awesome costume ideas this year, I kept coming across the tv commercial advertising for the new season of American Horror Story.  In particular, the white faced, black teary nun really caught my eye.  This is also a look you could totally pull off last minute.  Check it out!
Check out the video!

Onto a breakdown of the products:


I purchased the costume on Amazon.  However, you can also totally do this yourself.  I saw people take a white shirt shirt sleeve and push their head through it to get the habit.  You can also rock a white turtleneck and pin a white piece of fabric to the top of your head.  


I also have on black sclera lenses.  They really do complete the look but do take some practice putting in and getting used to.  I just did a random google search and found them for about $60.



To get this look, you really need white and black makeup.  I really love Graftobian Pro Paint - a water activated cake makeup.  It gets really opaque quickly.  

ProPaint™ Face and Body Paint

I also used regular old glue stick to block my brows.  It makes the look much creepier.

I threw a tiny bit of blush in the center of my lip to give some color to the look.  Rock this with a pair of white sneakers and you're good to go!  Hope you all enjoyed.  I plan on uploading my Halloween tutorials twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays...a total of 6 tutorials coming up.  Stay tuned!
