Horror Inspired Makeup: Ghostface (Scream franchise)

Hey pals! If you’ve followed our social media pages (and if not – you can find links on this website!) then you know that I like to do semi-regular posts about horror-inspired makeup looks, SFX, and various planned and unintentional cosplays.

We thought it would be fun to share a little bit more of the behind-the-scenes information on the creation of these looks here on our website. Our hope is to be able to share these on a weekly basis, switching between the 3 topics regularly.

In honor of the impending release of the new Scream entry, this week’s horror-inspired makeup look is based on Ghostface.

Inspired by the iconic mask, I wanted to do an exaggerated eye, lip, and contour.

Some of the looks I do are more casually wearable than others. This week probably leans more toward an editorial style, because I knew we would be sitting around the house and watching movies. But would I wash my face if we needed to run to the store unexpectedly? Probably not.

Will I do another dramatic wing when we head out for opening weekend? Most likely.
