Gothiness – Halloween Macabre, By Illamasqua

Leave it to Illamasqua to hold a Halloween course… I can’t say MAC wouldn’t either, but Illmasqua isn’t just edgy – a la MAC – it has a deeper, subterranean, curiously-otherworldly vibe.  Always.  To manage a full-on scare for your Fright Night revelry, they’ve got you covered…

Remarkably, the creepy harlequin-clown work (pictured) is a lot harder to achieve than one might think at first glance – try doing performance makeup even just once, and you’ll have an idea.  The deconstructed, paint-peel look reminds me of an abandoned, antiquated-Venetian mural (or maybe a mask from Carnivale that got left behind to gather dust through the centuries…) – I’d love to see the array of products used to create it, a plethora no doubt.  (PS, I can’t stand clowns, but I can appreciate the work done here!)

Anyway, you needn’t want this kind of facepaint to join in the fun – whatever form of haunt you take, sin you prefer, or wickedness you’re aiming for, I’m sure Illamasqua can help you achieve the desired eerie effects (don’t forget, your tools will matter as much.)  The course is only $67 too, which is a lot less steel than I’d have expected. For the best day of the year EVER?  Yeah, it’s worth it!
