The final look in this series!
Since we showed a vampire look, it is only natural that we feature their Hollywood nemesis, Werewolves! Once again, guest blogger Frances Amper wrote the step-by-step process below.
Happy Halloween readers! 🙂
This look requires lots of hair, fur and attitude! Roaaarrr!!!
My last model is my office friend, Nadine Henson!

Compared to all the previous looks, the make-up and hairstyling for Nadine was done simulataneously as the hair part needed a quite a bit of time, so I hope you don’t get confused by the photos jumping back and forth!
For the make-up, Shu Uemura artist Angie Cruz says she wanted to make a she-wolf look that is earthy and brown, and evoked wildness.
Start by using a foundation darker than your skin tone to hide imperfections. Overload on the bronzer by sweeping it across the cheeks and forehead.
Use a darker powder on the hallows of your cheeks, the inner eyes and along the side of the nose. This contouring elongates the face and gives the illusion of a snout.
But this doesn’t mean you should have whiskers! Instead, use feathery faux golden lashes that brush against cheeks alluringly. Since all eyes will be on the lashes, create a dramatic smokey effect with heavy layers of brown and blacks.
Complete the eyes with black eye-liner for a truly intense look.
With all the drama going on with your eyes (and hair! But that’s coming up next!), keep the lips natural and glossy.
Wolves may have sleek fur but for our werewolf, L’Oréal Professionnel hairstylist Raymond Santiago created masses of tight curls to imitate a thick pelt. But he took it a step further and went for a seriously frizzy, almost-afro hair, to create a truly wild look.
First, prep hair with Tecni.Art Hot Style Constructor to protect the hair from the heat styling that will follow.
Create tight curls with the top of the hair by using ordinary wire. Fold the wire into a V, then take about a quarter of an inch of hair and wrap and twist tightly around the wire.
Keep braiding each area around the top of your hair. Once it has been twisted, place the wired hair between the hot plates of a straightening iron for a few seconds for fast and intense curling.
Leave the braids alone for now.
Gather the rest of the hair and twist it into a tight knot. Use strong hold hairspray like L’Oreal Professionnel Air Fix to secure everything into place.
After about 20 minutes, carefully unwrap your hair from the wire.
Separate the strands with your hands. The masses of released curls will result in unbelievable volume!
Attach a clip-on curly faux hair (or real human hair if you can afford it!) near the top of your head. One can do for this look….
….but Raymond decides to use two!!! Whoo hoo!
Part hair in the middle and secure that part with more hairspray.
