Glam Skull Tutorial:
Starting off with a bare face.
Apply your base routine as usual. Keilidh has blocked out her eyebrows using a simple glue stick and power to protect the hairs from lash glue later on. This is optional, you could just completely avoid your brow area if you like.
Keilidh applies a glam eye look using the Secret Treasure Palette (RRP €29.95). The palette is full of gold, rustic colours, and that is what she is basing this look around.
To finish off any glam eye makeup, lashes are a necessity. Here Keilidh is using her lashes in the style 'RICH', Faux Mink Lashes (3 Pairs – RRP €12.95).
Start sketching out the skull shape using a lip liner. Here Keilidh is using the lip liner from her True Nude Lip Kit (RRP €18.95). This makes it much easier to create any look.
Keilidh has shaded in the darker areas of the skull using the shades Fade, Wreck and Forbidden from the Secret Treasure Palette. This shading will really help to make the gems pop.
Start applying your gems using eyelash glue to your face in the shape of a skull. Again, Keilidh is basing this look off the tones in the Secret Treasure Eyeshadow Palette, so is using different shades of gold and black gems.
Finish off the look with a glam lip, here Keilidh is applying the Rust Nude Lip Kit.
Voila! Now you have the finished Glam Skull look using the Secret Treasure Collection. A fun way to do Halloween while still being glam.
