Video: Halloween Makeup – Karl(y) Largerfeld

The traditional outfits for Halloween are scary and gruesome with zombies, witches, and vampires being the most popular.As time has gone by these looks have become less desirable and totally irrelevant characters are worn instead such as Scooby Doo, Nuns, Angels etc and for some reason the last few years has become more revealing so Sexy Cats, Nurses etc are being worn instead.

The reason for this I believe is that girls don’t want to make themselves look like an ugly witch, they would much rather be an attractive air hostess or Disney character. It’s not really Halloween but I guess it’s fancy dress?

I thought it would be fun to dress as a man, but not just any man… THE Karl Largerfeld. He’s a hugely iconic character and it’s something a little different!

It took about 20mins max to do and the effect it brilliant…see the pictures in the gallery below.

    Hey, I have a question about the outfit portion. I’m gonna try not to sound inappropriate right now, haha. Anyway, your chest isn’t exactly petite, and I was wondering where you found a shirt that you could button over it? I have quite large breasts, easily a UK size F, with a slim waist by comparison, and I have yet to find a button-up shirt that fits. Any suggestions? I just really love this look, with the tie and everything!

    Quite genious for Halloween, too. Perfect for us fashion snobs. πŸ˜‰ Are you gonna do more Halloween looks leading up to the day? If so, I vote for something of a doll-look, complete with an outfit, ’cause while I got the make-up I wanna do partly figured out, it’s the clothes I can figure out!

      Hi Violet,
      The shirt I had on first was from H&M it’s very tight across the chest actually, the one I wore in the pics was my bf’s shirt πŸ™‚ apart from the arms and the waist it fit fine.

      Im going to try do some more, what kind of doll look you thinking?

      Thank you for your comments, you always leave great feedback and I appreciate all your opinions xx

        Oh I’m so glad you appreciate my comments! I always do a little twirl and clap when you post.

        Maybe I should do a little detour into the men’s section the next time I go out shopping. Fashion knows no gender, right? πŸ™‚

        Re: the doll look, I was thinking the standard huge eyes (I’m gonna cover my brows and draw them on higher and then do a higher cut crease as well. And falsies!), but with a Halloween twist? Something a little scary, like a broken/raggy/old doll? It’s actually a little outside my skill-level, make-up wise, which is why I need some input, haha. And man, I have no idea what to wear. And my hair! AHH.

        Thanks anyway!

          Ok im gonna try squeeze the doll look in before halloween, I did a Bratz doll look but thats not scary like a broken doll. Hopefully I can get it done soon x

            Thank you so much, you’re my fave!
            I remember your Bratz look, loved that! I had one of those as a kid. Megan was my favourite.
