MAC Halloween 2009 Face Charts

It's that time of year again! MAC has put out their amazing Halloween Face Charts. As usual, they are incredible! There are 21 total face charts and all of them are really creative and awesome. These should provide some great inspiration for you if you haven't figured out what you want to be for Halloween this year. These are just a few of my favorites! If you want to see all of the face charts and the products used to create them, you can check them out now at MAC's Facebook HERE!


Some of my faves:


Exotic Zea

STEP-BY-STEP
1. By crushing Gesso eye shadow mixed in with Eye Liner Mixing Medium, you can paint your face white. Another option is to use white Paintstick from the M·A·C PRO line.
2. It is important to have references of zebra stripes handy to study the pattern. I used Blacktrack Fluidline with a #210 brush to create the pattern of zebra on my models face.
3. Doubling up on #37 lashes can create a dow eyed animalistic eye.
4. Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing powder will seal the deal.

Deadly Dame

STEP-BY-STEP
1. Prime and hydrate skin with an application of Prep + Prime SPF 50, and follow with a highlight of Strobe Cream.
2. Create a heavy lidded effect with a smokey eye by using Blackground Paint Pot as base all over eyelid with Brush #242. Apply a dense layer of Carbon Eye Shadow, concentrating on the outer and inner corner of the eye, leaving the center of the lid bare. Use Brush #217 to blend outward with Eye Shadows in Sketch and Shadowy Lady.
3. Create a glowing highlight in the centre of the eyelid by applying Luna Cream Colour Base and follow with a blend of Vanilla Pigment and Vex Eye Shadow.
4. Eyes should be smudged and kohl rimmed as black as possible through lower lashes with a blend of Smolder Eye Kohl and Carbon Eye Shadow with Brush #228.
5. Continue to create dark circles under the eyes by using Brush #217 to apply a blend of Print and Nocturnelle in sweeping semi-circle strokes. Leave spaces between these strokes bare to create highlights.
6. The femme fatale has been drinking blood! Draw Redd Lip pencil from lip down the chin, then paint on M·A·C Red Lipstick. Add Clear lipglass to the mixture with Brush#210 to give the glistening wet look.

Meisterfreeze

STEP-BY-STEP
1. Hydrate and prepare skin with Prep + Prime Skin and a light layer of Studio Moisture Fix.
2. Use Brush #190 to apply Painterly Paint Pot over the entire face, stippling more coverage over the high planes for a prominent highlight.
3. Use Brush #109 to buff Fluidline in Waveline over the contours of the face, creating a blended ombre between Painterly and the indigo shade of Waveline for an airbrushed effect.
4. Create deeper contours along the temples, nose, eyes, cheek, and chin by applying Carbon Eye Shadow with Brush #217.
5. Use Brush #208 with Blacktrack Fluidline to line the eyes and create the deep wrinkles above the brow, around eyes, under cheekbone, and chin.
6. Create dotted texture on the skin and details of eyebrow with Rapidblack Penultimate Liner.
7. Finish the eyes by applying Lash #8 on the upper lashes and Lash #4 on the lower lashline, following with one to two coats of Zoomblack Zoomlash Mascara.
8. For the lip, use Brushes #209 and #311 to apply smudges of M.A.C Red Lipstick blended with Clear Lipglass over the mouth into the distorted smears of blood.
