I’m going to be 8 months pregnant for Halloween so I wanted to have something easy to do, that I could either go all out with, or tone down depending on the effort I want to put out. Thankfully last year everyone on the planet learned how to do easy and pretty realistic stitches when the Rick Baker MAC collection came out.

My main reason for picking this as my Halloween look this year was how easy it would be. Jeans and a white shirt, pull my hair up, add some white paint, do my everyday face plus stitches and POOF I’m a modern Bride of Frankenstein….and if anyone had to ask what I was, they would be deserving of a good slap!
This look is made whole by the highlighting and shading done around the stitches and cuts. The depth takes it to another level. I of course did this look no justice compared to the original, but for my purpose it’s fantastic!!! I used my everyday makeup to achieve this look. Including lip liner for the cuts, eyeliner for the stitches, highlighting eyeliner for highlights, and contour powder for the shadows. I used white water based face paint for my hair, but other than that, these are all products I use on a regular basis. I didn’t purchase anything extra to get this final product.
There are other amazing tutorials on this look, some that are easier than others. The two below are my favorite and top recommendations.
