About Face: David Romero
Happy Halloween, fam! Whether or not you’re hitting the streets to hunt down some free candy tonight, we love a good excuse to beat our face to the gods. Today, our spooky inspo is courtesy of David Romero, a budding makeup artist who created three Halloween-themed beauty looks for the occasion. Check them out below, and let us know what you’ll be dressing up as here.
Look 1: The DevilThis look is made for “31 days of Halloween looks” this year ( hopefully I will make it out alive). For this look I used a red shadow from Sugar Pill in love+ and a drippy black eyeliner look using the Wet n Wild liquid liner, used a black eye kohl pencil for my lips, and used the highlighter sticks in stardust and lit from Milk Makeup on my face. Once I was done I just pulled out a pair of red horns I had made beforehand using felt, cotton balls, glue gun and then FIN the look is complete.
Look 2: La LloronaGrowing up I heard of this woman a lot and she terrified me so much so I made the Latin American folktale La Llorona, or The Weeping Woman. I wanted to keep the look very magical and somewhat nostalgic and dreamy in a way and because even though she is scary I like to keeps my looks somewhat cute. When I was making this look I added some tears so for the rest of the skull design I wanted to make it look like she was made of water waves or as if she is just dripping and so that’s why my face looks swirled and wavey, that was how I got the basic outline of the skull design. The products I used were the Morphe 35b pallet for contours and the Milk Makeup highlighter in supernova and put it in the waves and my nose for pretty purply glow. For the eyes I used the Kat Von d Mi Vida Loca pallet and used a navy blue and black all around my eyes and added Milk Makeup eye vinyl in tunnel, swooped my brows up and outlined my eyes and eyebrows with an electric blue shadow. Finally end this look I added my tear drops with the Milk Makeup eye pigmentation electric blue and added it on my neck as well.
Look 3: The ClownOk so this look was inspired by clowns obviously mostly because they just look crazy and fun all the time so that’s why I made this drag clown look. I used an Elmer’s glue stick, Wet n Wild concealer, my Morphe pallet, and a bunch of cut up lashes to do my eyes. For the rest of my face I wanted it to be very light so I used a very light concealer (and yes I only use concealer for a lot of my looks) and used a Laura Mercier setting powder all over the rest of my face. And in the end I used a red shadow from Sugar Pill for blush and the little hearts on my cheeks and lastly a little bit of a gloss with the holographic stick in stardust for lips.
