The Ghost of Marie Antoinette Halloween FOTD feat. Illamasqua Skin Base

The Ghost of Marie Antoinette Halloween FOTD

 

Hi everyone!

When I first had a play with the Illamasqua Skin Base 01 from the Human Fundamentalism collection (review and swatches here) it struck me as the perfect white base for a range of halloween/dress-up party looks, including Marie Antoinette, Geisha looks, and any ghost/vampire/zombie looks.

I thought it would be fun to try a Marie Antoinette dress up FOTD using the Illamasqua Skin Base 01 , copious amounts of blush, and some dry shampoo to emulate Marie Antoinettes powdered wigs. After I took the photos and had a look at them I realised the my ‘Marie Antoinette’ looked like a ghaul. Ah well!

And of course I couldn’t do a Marie Antoinette FOTD without also trying to create the Kirsten Dunst bathtub scene look in Sophia Coppola’s film ‘Marie Antoinette’ (Kirsten Dunst wears black lipstick in a fantasy sequence where she utters that famous line ‘let them eat cake’). Thus the Chanel Rouge Coco Rouge Noir in the image below.

After wearing Illamasqua Skin Base 01 for the first time for this FOTD, I realised that this product requires some sort of an emollient base for it to sit properly on the skin (especially if your skin is dry like mine). I found that if I applied a sunscreen which is on the greasy side the foundation sat a lot better (and the sunscreen contributes some ‘whiteness’ to the skin tone meaning that you need less of the Skin Base). I suppose some rose hip oil or shea butter would do just as well.

    Clever to use the dry shampoo to emulate a powdered wig! Black eyeshadow mixed with vaseline makes a good black lipstick, too :) Now I wish it were October!
