Halloween Marionette Doll Makeup with Clarins: Tutorial

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
My favorite holiday, Halloween, is only weeks away and this year I have teamed up with Clarins to create a fun Halloween makeup look using some awesome Clarins products. I decided to re-create a marionette doll look I did years ago and today I want to share with you some quick tips on how I achieved the look.........
For the complexion, I started with a liquid foundation that's a tad lighter than my natural skin tone: Extra Firming Foundation in "103 Ivory". Next I used a beautiful peachy-pink cream-to-powder Multi-Blush in "02 Candy". Don't be scared to really pack it on for that intense baby doll flush.

For the eyes, I used the beautiful Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in "13 Skin Tones" to create a natural smoky eye. Using the 3 Dot Liner, I dotted along my lash line to create the illusion of thicker lashes. Afterwards, I used the Long-Lasting Eye Pencil to do a simple line on the upper lash line. Then I ran a white eyeliner on the waterline to give the illusion of bigger eyes. Last but not least, I found the craziest lashes and packed those on to give myself the most dollish look.

6. 3 Dot Liner Liquid Eyeliner in "Black"
To imitate the marionette's wooden chin, I first used the Lipliner Pencil in "03 Nude Rose" to draw out two straight lines connecting the corners of my lips to the tip of my chin. Afterwards, I retraced that line with a black eyeliner and used the darker shadows from the palette to create some shading.

7. Joli Rouge in "743 Cherry Red"
For the lips I chose a gorgeous bright red, Joli Rouge in "743 Cherry Red" over a darker red lip liner. I also extended the corners of my lips with the black liner to create a more marionette-esque appeal. Lastly, I used the 3 Dot Liner to create some cross-hatchings on my face to finish the look.
The finished look!
I hope you've enjoyed that quick tutorial. I think this is a fun and easy look that's not too over-the-top but still impressive. I want to give big thanks to Clarins for providing the products I used. What are you dressing up as this year? Share with me in the comments below!
