Halloween Tutorial Series: Peeled Back Jack ‘O’ Lantern

Hello, fabulous readers! I’m so glad you are back for another #beautymonday — Halloween edition. Every Monday and Thursday of October I am bringing you a spook-tacular Halloween makeup tutorial. Today’s look is a peeled back jack ‘o’ lantern! I am carving pumpkins this week — so it only seemed appropriate. I have been really loving optical illusions lately — so when I decided on this look, I wanted it to appear as if my skin was being peeled back to show my true colors (I bleed orange and black). Watch the video below and let me know your thoughts!!

I am starting to get REAL depressed that October is already halfway through. I love this month SO MUCH that 31 days hardly seems like enough time for me to get all my Halloween activities done!

If you’ve been following along with my 100 Days of Makeup challenge, you’ll know that we only have 15 more days left (it ends on the 31st of October). I am already sad about that, too. TOO MANY THINGS ARE ENDING.

In case you don’t follow along with my blog on Twitter or Facebook, and haven’t kept up to date with last weeks looks, here is a little recap for you:


Let me know if you liked this fun take on a jack ‘o’ lantern, and let me know what you’d like to see next. I regularly run polls on my Instagram to keep up to date with what you guys want to see — so be sure to check by there to get your opinion in! Last week, you guys voted on a Broken Doll tutorial so stay tuned to see that!!
