Spider Queen Halloween Makeup

I've FINALLY managed to get around to creating another Halloween look. One that I'll definitely be wearing to one of the Halloween events this year. I've never gothed up with my makeup but I really like the way this turned out. I was going to call this a purple widow look but widow spiders are red so I've resorted to being really lame and am now calling it the Spider Queen. The idea essentially came to me whilst rewatching a certain youtube video where Spiderman says "Please don't tell anyone I webbed myself" and boom, inspiration hit me. Except, I didn't want it to be Spiderman themed itself.

I have to say, I thought this would be really easy to do but man, I don't think I've ever spent so long doing my makeup! I thought it'd be really easy to draw spiderwebs but drawing on yourself with a mirror was challenging. By the time I was done, the sun had disappeared and it was quite dark, so it was a struggle to take decent shots. It was definitely worth it as I love the end effect, and how it looks like I have a tattoo across my chest as well. I adore the spider web false lashes from Claire's and Illamasqua's purple lipstick in Kontrol and how they finish off the look nicely. 

So how did I get this look? I started off by drawing on my chest, first with Illamasqua's sophie pencil then I rubbed most of it off and went over it with Barry M's liquid liner. After that, I started priming my eyes and did a purple smokey eye with a lot of blending. I then applied my foundation and powder, did my brows before working on the extra detailing on the eye. I drew 4 curved lines extending from my eye, joined them up like a web and then lined my eyes. I finally added in the eyelash extensions then used an invisible lip liner before applying my purple lipstick. To finish off the look, I used Illamasqua's powdered metal in Thalia as a Blush and dabbed a bit of the glittery powder into the webs of my eyes and across my chest.
