Halloween is just around the corner! And I think the reason why everyone loves it so much is that it gives us the chance to have fun dressing up in costumes! But instead of just buying a pair of devil horns or dressing in black, I decided I wanted a Halloween-glam hair and make-up collection that can inspire you to come up with your own head-turning look.
Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing with you the step-by-step process to get the looks. And for our first, we’ll do a “Scary Doll”!
“Will you play with me?”

To make the project possible, I called in a lot of talents from the industry. For hair, freelance stylists Borge Aloba and Raymond Santiago volunteered to do two looks each. For make-up, four artists from Shu Uemura came together. And for styling, I’m super excited that Stylebible‘s Nikki Santiago agreed to do two looks, while Marie Claire’s former fashion editor Pam Quiñones would do the others. Photography was done by Pranz Kaeno-Billones.
Since I’ve never handled a shoot before, let alone transform models into monsters, I asked my office mates to be the volunteers (at least I think they’ll forgive me if something bad happens hehehe).
The volunteer for the first look, my office mate Caro Pan.
For the make-up, Grace wanted to make everything doll-like and sweet by using lots of pink and light colors. But it will be contrasted by a creepy black mascara running down the eyes like a crying possessed toy.
Apply the foundation (Shu Face Architect 754) evenly and set with loose powder.
Get a fan brush (or a small mascara wand) and apply black waterproof mascara from the lower lid down to your cheeks to get the effect of black tears. Apply some clear gloss to make it look like you just cried.
For the hair, Borge wanted to make Caro into a blond doll with wild curly hair but without using bleaching or permanent coloring products. He also didn’t use any hair extensions.
Nikki and the Stylebible.ph crew completed the look with the following clothes and accessories!
Dress from Sassa Jimenez
Shoes from Carlos Santana at What Shoe Wearing
Fur stole from Ac+632
Necklace from Religioso
Bracelet from the stylist’s own
And we’re done!!! Whoo hoo!!! Again, one big thanks to the following people who made it all possible! 🙂
