Beetlejuice & Miss Argentina: SFX Tutorial Series, Pt. 8

This Halloween season, we're continuing our SFX Tutorial Series and have teamed up with talented makeup artists across the world to bring you a series of exclusive SFX makeup tutorials. Now through October, we’ll release step-by-step video tutorials and blogs based on the top requested and trending looks for Halloween 2020. To kick off our series, artist Lola Rose creates his version of two of Hollywood's favorite Halloween characters, Beetlejuice and Miss Argentina.

Before getting started: apply a colorful eye look with glitter for an ultra glam look:

Start with a freshly cleansed face and dramatic eyes. After completing his eyeshadow, he added extra sparkle using Lit Cosmetics Glitter in Afternoon Delight.  

For all subsequent steps, Lola Rose primarily uses one Mehron palette to complete the look, along with an assortment of professional brushes to get the detail work just right.

Step 1: After completing your eye look, use a makeup pencil to outline the area you'll be filling in later with color.

PRO Tip: Use a pencil that isn't too dark in color and that doesn't smear easily. We recommend the Make Up For Ever Artist Pencils.

Step 2: Add color, and start with the largest areas first.

PRO Tip: Using the Mehron Palette and Mehron Mixing, start with the biggest areas first. This will help them dry faster, and the detailed work will follow. His favorite brushes are from Bdellium Tools, Mehron, Make Up For Ever, and Lit Cosmetics.

For the face:

For the hair:

Step 3: Use high quality brushes for the details. They will make all the difference!

PRO Tip: For liner work, he swears by the Bdellium Tools Studio Eyeliner 710 brush.

Step 4: Once you're done with the body, move on to the face

Using teal, dark blue, and silver , paint half of your face. Use dark blue and silver to add shadows and depth. Add a hint of pink as blush.

Step 5: Color in the hair

Using black, light pink, violet, and orange, fill in the hair. On the side with light pink, violet and orange, try to do strokes of each shade to mimic real hair.

Step 6: Add color to the other half of your face.

Using a Kryolan TV Paint Stick, create a nice base for the other half of your face. Use the silver from the last step to add depth. Be sure to set with RCMA No Color Powder to lock everything in place. Finish your eyes with false lashes.

It's Showtime!
