An Easy Bunch of Batman Character Tutorials - Take Your Pick for Halloween!

Hey there! So Halloween is coming up again - I realise it's still a few months away but it is my favourite time of year and I tend to get too excited to wait until Halloween to start deciding on costumes and playing with looks. So I started a Batman series on my YouTube channel and I will DEFINITELY be adding more looks to the series but here is what I have created so far.

Each tutorial is easy to follow so you can recreate your favourite one for Halloween!

BATMAN MASK: First up, the classic, a mask inspired by the man himself and a super easy creation of it. The great thing about this mask is that it is so gender neutral that it is fun for a girl and a boy (old school slinky reference - who got it? :P ).

TWO FACE MAKEUP: A fantastic villain look and a really effective makeup that will definitely leave people talking about your awesome Halloween costume for a while :)

CATWOMAN MAKEUP - This tutorial shows you how to create the old-school cat woman look. I will probably also do an updated one (more like the Anne Hathaway version) soon as well.

BANE MAKEUP MASK TUTORIAL - Definitely one of the more difficult ones and I would only recommend doing this one if you have at least 2 hours free to apply your makeup before you head off to your Halloween event. Also practice your Bane voice or walk around using dubsmash the whole time you're wearing this look. The Bane voice is HARD! haha

So these are my creations so far. I will be adding more to this series as I am receiving HEAPS of requests, mainly for Harley Quinn and The Joker. Leave me a comment below if you have a particular Batman character you want to see and subscribe to the Eyedolize Makeup YouTube Channel if you want updates on the new videos :)

For Those Times You Get a Sweet Craving But Don't Want To Cave!

Okay so it's really not the same thing and probably won't satisfy your craving for sweet food (my Mum would say to eat a tablespoon of coconut oil at this point - it supposedly stops the craving for sugar....I'm not so sure about that :P ). But I have created a whole series of sweet lips and let's be honest, there are sooooo many sweets in the world that this is probably just part 1.

Over the last few months I've been asking my YouTube subscribers to comment their suggestions for sweet lips looks they would like me to create and this is what I've come up with so far:

DONUT LIPS - Insert Homer Simpson drool sound here! First off I decided to create a look that is inspired by one of my favourite sweet things to eat....okay that's misleading, I love eating ANYTHING sweet. But I kind of figured I could morph my lips into the shape of a donut or the "cat's bum pose" as it is so correctly referred to - and that is how I decided on my first sweet lips look being inspired by donuts!! YUM!

Check out the full tutorial for this look here: Donut Lipstick Tutorial

MINT CHOC CHIP ICE CREAM LIPS - Because it is my favourite flavour and I thought the waffle cone would add a pretty rad effect. What's your favourite flavour?!?

RAINBOW LOLLIPOP LIPS - Okay, anytime I upload anything to do with rainbows, my subbies go CRAZYYYY! And rightly so - rainbows are awesome! So when the requests starting rolling in for rainbow lollipop lips I knew it had to be done :)

HOT CHOCOLATE LIPS - By the time I had got to the 4th look in this sweet lips series it was starting to get a little chilly in Australia and I was drinking A LOT of hot chocolates - needless to say, inspiration came easily that week :)

CHOCOLATE SUNDAE LIPS - From one extreme to the other! While I was warming up with a hot chocolate in Australia, I think many people on the opposite side of the world would have been cooling down with a chocolate sundae! Those of you who were inspired this video :)

PEPPERMINT LIPS - A classic American style of this candy. In Australia our peppermints are plain white or green - I personally think the American ones look WAY cooler! So this lipstick look was inspired by the rad swirly pattern on American peppermint candy.

COTTON CANDY LIPS - This one was probably the highest requested look (right next to cupcake lips) and I must say it was one of my favourite to create and the finished look was so cute!

CUPCAKE LIPS - And the final one of the series (so far) is this pretty uber cute cupcake lipstick! I have previously created a cupcake lipstick to say thank-you to My Cupcake Addiction for doing a cupcake inspired by my leopard print makeup tutorial. But I figured it was time for an updated one, plus people were requesting it on every single one of my sweet lips tutorials :P

So there we have it! My Sweet Lips Series so far but make sure to keep an eye out as I will without a doubt be adding more to this series very soon so I will have to do a part 2 to this blog post.

I hope you enjoy all of these weirdly wonderful looks and make sure to subscribe to Eyedolize Makeup YouTube Channel for updates on all my new looks!
