I had the pleasure of doing makeup for a Halloween-themed wedding recently. The Bride and Groom (Laura and Jay) wanted to be Lydia and Beetlejuice, which was a fun challenge for me to plan out.
With Halloween only a couple days away, I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures of the Bride and Groom. The cutie-pie couple was thrilled, and tells me they had lasting makeup and an AMAZING time!
It was fun creating the hair with Liquid Latex and Crepe Hair, which I steamed straight… no wigs were used in the making of Beetlejuice!
Lydia decided that GOTH was a no-go for her bridal look (and I don’t blame her!) so we tied in her GLAM look with a Temptu S/B foundation that was about half a shade lighter than reality, and some MAC ‘Orange’ and ‘Signed, Sealed’ colors. She’s got Mac Cosmetics Russian Red on her lips for a classic vamp look.
Liquid Latex and Artex mixed with Cornmeal set the scene for Beetlejuice’s weird Mossy hairline
Uhhh… sir? You have something in your hair….
You look GREAT! High Five!!
…Uhhh… Errr, AIR FIVE!
Watched Latex never Dries…
Lydia Goes Glam, which is much better than Goth when you’re the Bride
Yes, the shadow coordinates with the bouquet…. You are right to be impressed.
As Beetlejuice says: It’s SHOWTIME!!!
Lydia and Beetlejuice (Laura and Jay): The Happy Couple! **Sniff** I love happy endings…
