I’ve all but retired my Disney Villains Makeup tutorial series. Although it was a lot of fun to begin with, in the last few months I just haven’t felt inspired to keep it going. I was really struggling to think up ideas and I just felt it was better to leave it be than to try to force myself to film more videos that I wasn’t happy with.
That is until last week. I got a comment on one of my videos requesting a tutorial inspired by Oogie Boogie, the Bogeyman from The Nightmare Before Christmas. And all of a sudden my mojo was back! I leaped at the chance to create a seasonal look inspired by one of my all-time favourite movies.
For this look, I wanted something ghostly and gothic. I chose a few shades of green and blended them together to create a striking eye. I used a khaki colour that was reminiscent of Oogie’s sack-cloth body, but added a pop of day-glo green that reminded me of the glow-in-the-dark colours in his lair. I’ve been dying to use a black lipstick for one of these looks, and it was the perfect way to pay homage to Oogie Boogie’s gaping maw.
I’ve actually worn this makeup a few times now. I like the punk feel this look has. If you feel that it’s a bit over the top, you can always wear a slick of clear gloss on your lips and just play with the green eyeshadow.
If you’d like to request a makeup tutorial, please feel free to get in touch with me. Have fun playing with this look and let me know if you try it out for yourself.
