Spookbook #1: Broken Doll

Today I'm going to show you how to transform into a broken doll, for Halloween.
You're going to need your normal make up(with a lighter foundation if you've got, or white facepaint), eyeliner or black facepaint, red or pink lipstick, mascara and an old doll-like dress.

*REMEMBER to put your outfit on first so the make up and facepaint doesn't smudge*

First, take the foundation your using and put it on like you usually would. Try to get it as smooth as possible to create a doll-like effect. I like liquid ones because I think they glide easier across your skin. Then put on eyeliner(this parts optional) and mascara using the mascara to open your eyes up. Apply a rosey blush to your cheeks, trying to be as over the top as possible( or go for a run till your out of breath!) Put on the lipstick or gloss, and you can even use facepaint for this too if you want. Then, using the eyeliner go around your lips outlining the edges to create a cartoon look. From here onwards I just went crazy and you can do whatever you like. I drew two lines dripping from my lips and then a stitch across one side of my face. Using zig-zags and uneven edges makes it look like you've been dropped on the floor(as a doll). I did breaks under my left eye, right cheek and forehead.

I added a stitch mark along my neck as well to look like a bit of a hand-me-down kind of toy. You could even add a tatty-teddy kind of patch to your dress or outfit if you want that look, and back comb your hair(maybe leave that             'till the day though).

Even though it's Halloween, don't be afraid to add the odd hair accessory or two! I wore this black flower which seems to have a pink thread attached to it(oops!). 

For the outfit, I put on a mint green and pink floral dress with black tights as I thought it looked slightly old fashioneD(ps, I know its short, it really is old) you can wear whatever you like and customise it how you want. Maybe fraying the edges would look good too!

I really like this look because its girly yet still spooky enough for Halloween at the same time. I hope you enjoyed this post, comment below what you're being for Halloween!
