Be a living doll for halloween II halloween 2016

Halloween is coming closer and I wanted to do one of my own nightmares from my childhood. After seeing an especially terrifying episode of Goosebumps of a ventriloquist puppet I was forever terrified of these things. And to this day there is nothing more scary to me then these dolls. This is inspired by the classic cracked porcelain doll and the more sinister ventriloquist puppet. I chose lighter cute colors, a sad and depressed outlook and pigtails with bows for a cute and creepy look. But kept the puppet mouth which makes the ventriloquist dolls so terrifying. 

By the way, I'm working up posts for my blog, but as I'm doing quite a demanding study for these next years I probably won't be able to daily blog, give love to other creators and do youtube/instagram regularly. I'll inform you when I'm doing a regular schedule, instead of posting once a week of my youtube videos.

How to become a living sketch makeup tutorial II halloween 2016

A costume for all the art lovers out there, I hope you find this weeks video inspiring and try it out for yourself. This is definitely one of the more creative costumes out there if you like taking it all out, and is a fun twist of the classic black and white makeup. You can add on a black wig, a black dress, some grey lenses and a pair of black shoes, and you're good to go as a sexy drawing. 
And the very best part of this costume? It requires nearly no materials, and you can use a mix of regular cosmetics and cheap halloween store products. I will recommend you getting the products I use as I know they're fit for this use, but it's not necessary. 

Eulenspiegel clown face paint in white
Grimas black water activated paint
Makeupstore eyeliner in "snowflake"
Ben Nye translucent powder in neutral (I forgot this step, but use a white translucent powder if wearing this for longer then 1 hour)
Sugarpill "tako" (Any white matte eyeshadow will do)
Brown hairspray (should be black, or have a wig)
Eldora false lashes in M108
Urban Decay eyeliner from a limited edition package, any long lasting black water liner will do. 


Ringmaster clown burton style makeup tutorial II Halloween 2016

Halloween is coming around, and of course I had to do something Burton inspired. I want a good mix of scary and less scary tutorials, so you have a lot to choose from at halloween. I've actually already done this look before, at last halloween, but I didn't film it because it was too dark out. But I did absolutely love it and I knew I wanted to show you this, and I've saved it until this year. What is so fun about re-creating a look I did a year ago is that I can so clearly see improvement and how my art style has changed during a year. This look is inspired by Tim Burton, Michael Hussar and vintage candy shops. The style is clearly burtonesque, but the nose shading, lip shading and cheek shading is inspired by Hussars painting style. And I can reveal that later this October I'm doing a more directly Hussar inspired look, but I need to finish sketching it out first.

Gouged eye SFX tutorial II Halloween tutorials 2016

We're nearing halloween and I've been filming and sketching for you guys all summer, so get ready for one crazy month. The videos will be uploaded either Wednesday or Friday and will be a mix of body paints and prosthetics. This look was inspired by the gouged out eye that goes around Pinterest every year in October, so I wanted to do my little twist on it. 

The process is simplified so that most people can get a good result without much skill. As you can tell I didn't want a super neat application, this is because most people won't know how to properly apply prosthetics, and it shows how to blend in any errors so that it looks believable on a party, as a cosplay or wherever you want to wear this look. 

Products used
For prosthetics:
Nose wax from Ben Nye
Plastic wrap
Ben Nye grease paint wheel in "master fx bruise"
Kryolan sealer
PS Composites bald cap plastic (can be replaced with glaztan, liquid latex and other similar alternatives)
Ben Nye powder in fair

For appliance:
NARS Sheer Glow foundation 1.
Ben nye powder
Makeupstore brow pencil nr 1
Prosthetic glue (Pro-key neils materials, pros-aide, etc.)
Eyebrow block or glue down (with a standard glue stick) your eyebrows to protect them

See Portugal through my lens

Faro is one of those not quite discovered cities in Portugal that still isn't overwhelmed with tourists during high-season. And we chose our trip there this year because some my fathers girlfriends family lives down here, so it's very nice getting to know them.  The only downside in Faro is that many of the natives doesn't speak a lot of english, so you need to be a bit patient when ordering food and getting around with taxies and stuff. But plus side they're really friendly. It's not really a problem because you usually get your point across, but it can be inconvenient.

If you're looking for the real portuguese experience, you should eat dinner at 1pm, as the natives eat out at that time and simply has bread, cheese and wine at nighttime. This will give you the freshest food and the cheapest prices. And be sure to try the grilled fish, as they make some of the most amazing fish dishes in the world. As for dining at night, we had tapas at Bar 62. Incredible place, well made food and a huge selection of exiting drinks. If you're a traditionalist, order the quiches. If you like raw fish, order the Norway tapas, it's fantastic. And if you're a real sweet tooth, order granny with the goat cheese, walnut and honey. 
And if you're looking for great sushi, be sure to swing by 7imeo winebar and order their hot rolls, the salmon and avocado and spicy shrimp, you will not regret it. Spoken from somebody who previously hated sushi.  

What to shop
In Portugal, shoes and purses are definitely something you need to pick up in Portugal. Great quality products at a reasonable price point. I've scoured some shops and looked at different products, and if you do use leather the shoes and purses has very high quality leather and good handwork in the sewing, so you know it'll last you for some time. Keep in mind if you're going for shopping that in Faro during the summer they have a lot of festivals and markeds, so be sure to swing by those to pick up some spicy jewelry that can dress up a basic outfit and make you stand out. 

Other to-shop products are different spices and if you can, bring some olive oil and wine with you as well on your way home to make the memories of the trip and tastes last you a while after your arrival home.

The best cleansing scrub for dry skin

• Cruelty free • 21.95$ • 4.2 oz •

If you grew up near the sea, or just simply like the salty smell of the sea, I can guarantee you, you will love the scent of this scrub. It's a mix of thick and fine salt, and the harder you massage it in, the deeper it exfoliates. Make sure to have a wet face, and scrub it in. For as long as you bother to. Then carefully splash it off let your face dry, preferably without a towel, to avoid brushing of any nutrients for the skin. As said on the pot, it contains avocado, lime and a bunch of other moisturizing and brightening oils. Grapefruit, extra virgin coconut oil and mango butter to mention a few.

After I've used it, it dries out my outbreaks and make them disappear faster and properly clean my skin. The skin feels moisturized and I actually started using this after a film shoot where we where around a lot of toxic materials, so I broke out and flaked all over. This removed the dry and broken skin almost instantly, when nothing else worked, so I know for a fact this is hard-core. As for the packaging it's great that you can collect five pots and receive a free mask of your choice. And the pro of being in a pot is that you can easily get all of the product out.

All in all, this is a great all rounder and is supposedly great for all skin types. But I've only used it on dry to combination skin type over time, so I can't state that. If you want a long use of it, only use it in the face and find a bigger and cheaper option for your body
