Familiar with a musical/movie called The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Admittedly, I only saw the film once (and the Glee episode), but Tim Curry’s performance was astounding. It was easily the flick’s most memorable aspect for me. To celebrate Halloween and to pay homage to saucy Dr. Frank-N-Furter, my Halloween FOTD is the sweet transvestite from Transexual, Transylvania.
I had a lot of fun copying the bold makeup, and I also scared the sh*t out of my grandma unintentionally. lol The great part about trying on Frank N Furter’s makeup is that the character is doing a very obvious transvestite look on purpose, so I got to apply plenty of makeup no-nos.
How I achieved the look…
Face: The first makeup faux pas that I intentionally committed was the too-light foundation applied thickly all over the face. Didn’t bother doing my neck as I gifted the foundation to my mom and it’s actually her color. Would’ve been a waste.
Eyes: I hate the black eye shadows on my palettes. They are the most unused as I’m not much of a smokey eye kind of person. I was glad to make a dent in them for this FOTD. Just one shade was used over my entire eyelid and eyebrows. For the socket line to lash line, I used a dampened brush to make a bolder black. Not satisfied with the contrast, I used black gel eyeliner as eye shadow from socket line to lash line, as eyeliner on the lower lash line, and as the faux brows above my real eyebrows. Finally, the contrast I was looking for!
Lips: For the purplish lip liner, I layered a reddish brown lip liner over a slightly shimmery navy blue eyeliner. My lips were colored with a wine shade and darkened with light swipes of oxblood lipstick, then finished with a touch of clear gloss.
I can’t go for curly hair, so I just messed up my hair to look crazy. Haha.
Ready for Halloween?
