Broken Doll Halloween Makeup

So, I was meant to do this makeup look a while ago for Halloween month but life got in the way and I never got around to trying it out until the other day. This look was very much inspired by an image I saw on reddit a few weeks ago, I actually can't seem to find it on there anymore, so I apologise for the lack of reference. I did whore out a photo of this look on Facebook and was surprised by how many of my friends liked it, hopefully you guys will too?

This was my first attempt at this look and given that I'm really a nobody that's still relatively new with playing with makeup, I think it turned out quite well. I first used a black eyeliner pencil to outline where I'd do my makeup properly, then I used a light foundation and powder outside of the outline and used a darker foundation and powder inside the outline I drew. Next, I lined my lips red and colored them in with a glossier red lip pencil (a creamy lipstick would do too). Next, I filled in my brow then worked on my eye shadow, which was just a highlighter shade right under the brow then a shimmery bronze/gold on the lid and blended in a light brown shadow to give a little depth (I then topped off with some more shimmery bronze/gold on the lid). I lined my eye, added mascara and then added some blush inside the lines. Finally, I outlined the crack area with liquid liner and then added a few extra details/cracks to it. Wait for it to dry and you're done!
