Sweet Spooks: ‘The Purge’ SFX Tutorial Success

I have been wanting to delve into my makeup all week, but was just a bit too busy.

But last night! Last night was another story!☺️😏

I got home, crashed, woke up, made two pumpkin cookie cakes for my parents and my sister, and a big batch of sugar cookies that I decorated for a friend I’ll be seeing tomorrow. ☺️ 

I do so love baking.πŸ’œπŸŽƒπŸ’œ

So! After that, I sat and watched Halloweentown with Frankenstein.πŸΆπŸ’œ he loves that movie! ☺️

I decided that the night was young and I could manage to try a makeup before bed!πŸ˜€πŸŽ‰

Now, I went with an all makeup, zero practical effects, paint because I really truly want to improve my makeup and body paint skills. Right now I have zero in that department lol!πŸ˜‚ but, I’m making an effort to try from now on. 😌

Makeup blogger and overall awesome girl, MadeYewLook, has some of the most amazing body paint tutorials ever! πŸ’œ She’s my body paint fave, the way Glam and Gore is my SFX fave.πŸ’œβ˜ΊοΈ

I decided to try her Purge mask makeup tutorial because it didn’t seem that difficult…

Holy shit bombs was I wrong, but the payoff was great😏πŸ”ͺ…


For an extremely intricate makeup that involved a lot of light-play, I think I did okay! I was shocked it came out remotely alright lolπŸ˜‚ 

I seriously had to go through the process twice because everything just looked so muddled the first time. πŸ˜” I tried to follow her steps to a tee, but they just weren’t applicable for what I was working with. πŸ˜’

I ended up kinda using my own freestyle method on the eyes to get the same effect she had in the end, and also used a darker rose colored lipstick with a light brown blush dusted on top to make the lips pop. ☺️

In the end, it looked fucking crazy lol but in a good way! πŸ˜†πŸŽ‰πŸ”ͺπŸŽƒI could definitely improve, and having a proper array of body paints and colors would most definitely help. β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘πŸ»

I’ll need to have like a Go Fund Me or something to pay for that business. πŸ˜‚β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ

All in all, pretty neat, yeah? πŸ˜€ Share your thoughts because I love you and love it when we talk! πŸ’œ

Til then… Let me purge? πŸ”ͺπŸ˜€πŸ”ͺ






  1. Nice knife! The Purge sounds familiar — was Ethan Hawke in it? I think I saw that movie a few years ago and I didn’t know what the hell was going on! Haha. I remember the masks — your creation certainly reminds me of the movie.

    • Thank you! Yeah! The Purge wasn’t all that great but I loved the psychotic 1% lol. The one guy reminded me of the killers in Funny Games! ☺️
