Halloween Season Beauty and Art
Halloween Season Beauty and Art

As every year before Halloween, we look for costumes and pay attention to makeup. Let's see how genuine gold leafs can be used for unique creations. 

Social media is a very popular platform to expose different makeup artworks. I will look through with you the contest which was held by QC Makeup Academy. The Art is the only right word for these creations.a

Makeup Artists every year have the contests in different themes. This segment of beauty supply industry had developed very wide due to new materials and different product acquisitions.j
The golden makeup created by Livia Rideg and judged by Nathan Johnson, who on regular basis share advises regards celebrities makeup and was in this business for last 20 years. Let's see what is his opinion regarding the winner of the contest.  h

“There are so many things about Livia Ridegs fantasy makeup application that make it extraordinary. Before I even get to the gold, the beauty makeup itself demands praise. The precision of application is flawless. The lips are perfect. The blush sits in that magic spot that maximizes both contour and sexy glow.  
The highlights are divine and perfectly placed. Normally, I am not a fan of lashes so extreme, but given the turn this perfect beauty makeup takes, I do not believe any other 
lash could have been more perfect.j

They create the ideal bridge from flawless beauty to stunning fantasy.  
Those products could easily fall into the model's eye, which would have been a disaster, but, the beautiful smoothness really allows the model's eye to have a spectacular life. The line where gold meets flesh wanders in a beautifully effortless way that invites the viewer to follow it.  
As we take a look at the gold , I want to take a moment to express just how difficult what Livia did is. Those products  gold leaf, gold shimmers, glitters of all grades,etc. Are very mischievous. They love to crumble, float away and go all over an otherwise beautiful beauty makeup. She has masterfully created texture and balance without overdoing it. He thoughtful choices like using a gold cosmetic under the eye, instead of the gold leaf glitter, was the mark of a true professional. 

The gold on the neck fades form texture to smooth as it crosses the throat allowing a story to form in my head. Great makeup can tell many stories and here is what hers told me. A beautiful woman stole the heart of King Midas. In a moment of weakness, without thinking, he touched her soft cheek, and before his eyes, he watched this beautiful, delicate woman turn into just another one of his ordinary golden treasures. 
Livia created a work of art. 
Her story may have been very different than the one I saw, but what shows her greatness is the fact that a story, or many stories, can be seen within it. Congratulations Livia. This is outstanding work.”o Everybody should agree- outstanding.heartLivias Artwork is on the main picture, as all others are the creations of makeup artists, who did participate in the same contest.
Each year at October QC held a Halloween Makeup Contest. Usually, they received hundreds of entries in Gore, Vintage and Fantasy makeup and their fans have to select a winner by voting on QCs Facebook Page. 
The Judges  Michele Mulkey, Azzi Williams, and Nathan Johnson  are giving their critique on why the winning makeup entries were selected as the winners! 

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
