Shock’s makeup is a gentle application of her two primary colors, purple and green. This compliments my Shock inspired costume‘s purple tutu without overpowering the look.

Plus, nothing is more appropriate for a witch makeup look than a cat eye!

Shock Inspired Makeup Tutorial

You will need:

  • Pale foundation (one or two shades lighter than your usual color)
  • Translucent setting powder
  • Purple eyeliner
  • Purple eyes hadow (multiple shades)
  • Green eye shadow
  • Natural dark brown (coffee/latte) lipstick

Instructions:

1. This tutorial is fairly basic, as her skirt makes a huge impact and doesn’t need to compete with makeup. Less is sometimes more. Start by using a foundation that is a few shades lighter than your usual color. I used my winter foundation.

2. Heavily outline your eyes with the purple eyeliner, bringing up in an exaggerated cat eye. Use a dark purple eye shadow on your lids, then bring up a very light purple under your brow. Bring a warm, medium shade of purple under your eye and up around the cat eye extending towards your temples.

3. Fill in your brows with green eye shadow, and add a hint at the end of the purple, right at the temple.

4. Use a natural color (maybe on the darker side) for your lipstick.

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

After 4 batches, I finally pulled off some perfect little macaroon shells (not pictured). Regardless if they look perfect or not, they taste amazing! #macaroons #baking #amateurbaker #delicious
  • I never could stomach the idea of destroying a book for decoration when they are so perfect on their own! Today took more out of me than I anticipated, so nothing on the blog just yet, but soon!
  • Tea anyone? This setup under a canopy of trees was so lovely! #timefortea #madasahatter #madteaparty #aliceinwonderlandparty #aliceinwonderland
  • I think I could actually pull off going blonde! Goes to show how a quality wig makes all the difference in a costume and this one from @rockstarwigs is fantastic! #aliceinwonderland #madteaparty #madasahatter #timefortea
  • Decided to put my Harry Potter posts on the back burner and start sharing my Alice in Wonderland mad tea party! I'm just too excited to hold these back any longer! #aliceinwonderland #madteaparty #madasahatter #timefortea
