Halloween and the Amazing Amanda Chapman

Amanda Chapman is an amazing makeup artist and photographer from Alabama who is currently undertaking a 31 days of Halloween challenge on her Facebook page and Instagram. She has done the challenge every October since 2012, and the results are always amazing.

 This is a before and after comparison, which shows how amazing her transformations are! 

Charlie Chaplin,
Norman Bates, and Edgar Allen Poe

I'm loving the black and white makeup looks a lot. The one on the right is Edgar Alan Poe, which is one of my favourites from this year. You can view a short video of the Edgar look in action here, and one showing some of the creation process here.
 Here are some of my favourites from 2012 to now. The quotes are from her Facebook page. 
October 22 2014

"To my knowledge, Nosferatu was the very first on screen vampire. Bram Stoker's Dracula was the first novel (Stoker's widow sued the filmmakers because they did not get permission to make a movie based on the Dracula novel). The silent film was released in 1922 and to this day Nosferatu is one of the creepiest vampires in my opinion.

"I blocked out my eyebrows using layer upon layer of glue stick, concealer and powder. I also used the glue stick to attach the black button over Coraline's eye. Her blue starry top is actually my daughter's jacket from Target worn backwards and the yellow coat is mine."

Little  Dead Riding Hood
Oct. 16 2013

"She didn't go down without a fight.

For the big bad wolf's (who ain't so bad anymore) claw marks I used Spirit scar putty...which I do not recommend. It's very sticky and difficult to work with. Then I shadowed the cuts with dark red and added a little fake blood. I had an old wolf mask just laying around (because who doesn't) and I purchased the red cape and dress from Walmart several years ago. I know she normally has blonde hair but I wanted to change up her look just a bit."
