I am extremely excited about this post, mainly because it's a makeup collaboration with my best friend and fellow blogger Taylor from tmaemakeup, how flippin' exciting? Taylor does a series over on her blog called 'Makeup Inspired by A Film' which is where she puts up a poll on Twitter asking you guys what film is your favourite and the film with the most votes wins, then she'll do an incredible makeup look inspired by the film poster. I thought this was such a fun and creative idea therefore I was very excited when she asked me if I wanted to do a collaboration with her. We both decided on doing something horror related for a bit of fun and because we're also massive horror movie fans. Saw was the winner and we both created our own unique look inspired by the film (these looks would be perfect for upcoming Halloween). Taylor's look is featured in the picture above and if you'd like to read more about how she achieve this look then simply click here, you wouldn't want to miss out! 

Here is my finished look. Now as you can tell, it's not the most wearable everyday look! However I believe it'll be a fun look to do for Halloween which is my favourite time of the year and it's only next month! I'm going to give you a quick run down of what I did and some of the products I used to achieve this Saw inspired look. 

For my base I used Miss Sporty Insta Glow primer, I find that this primer makes my foundation look more flawless. Speaking of foundation, I use Maybelline SuperStay Foundation all over my face and then I covered any blemishes with Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. 

I wanted quite a dramatic contour with this look as JigSaw from the movie has heavily contoured cheek bones and they're more of a grey toned shade. I started off with using the darkest shade from my Technic Cream Contour palette and I carved out my cheek bones all the way down to my lips and down the sides of my chin (you can't see the chin contour anymore as the lipstick smudges covered them up). I then continued to contour my forehead and down the sides of my nose, I blended everything out with a Real Techniques Expert Face brush. I powdered my face with Rimmel Stay Matte powder to set the contour and my foundation and I then proceeded to go over the contour with a grey eyeshadow from Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette just to make it that bit more dramatic. I baked underneath my contour using a Primark Sponge and another Rimmel Stay Matte powder which was a shade too light for me, as I wanted my contour to be sharp. 

I literally had no idea what I wanted to do with my eyes so I just went with the flow, but I was fairly happy with how they turned out. I'll start with my eyebrows, I used a dark brown eyeshadow mixed with a matte black eyeshadow from the same Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette. I wanted them to look very thick and very dark so I used a Maybelline Brow This Way gel to brush my eyebrows upwards so they looked bushier. I then carved out underneath my brow with a light concealer shade from my Technic Cream Contour palette just to clean them up a bit. For my eyes, I started off with using Snazaroo Red face paint all over my lid and then I used Taylor's Makeup Forever Red Pigment over the top to make it a bit more vibrant. I use the same matte black eyeshadow on top of the red colour and blended it out with a big fluffy blending brush from Morphe. I was hoping for it to be jet black however the colours mixed together, ending up creating a dark purple, but I kinda liked it. I smudged the black eyeshadow underneath my lower lash line also for more definition. I skipped liner and went straight onto mascara using my Benefit Roller Lash. To create those dark heavy bags underneath my eyes, I used a mixture of contour shades from my NYX Highlight & Contour Pro palette, using my finger to smudge it under my eyes until I achieved my desired look. 

Of course as it was Saw, I just had to put the JigSaw cheeks in the look! I simply used Red and White Snazaroo face paint for this. Pretty straight forward. 

I knew I wanted to do black lips for this look however I don't own a black lipstick. I chucked on the darkest lipstick I own which is Makeup Revolution Diamond Life lipstick which Taylor got me for my birthday, it's a gorgeous dark, deep purple shade. I then popped some matte black eyeshadow on over the top to make it the colour I wanted. I felt like this look seemed too neat, so I ended up smudging the lipstick all around my lips using my finger and I also drew small 'joker like' lines each side of my mouth to give it a cool effect. 

I had such a fun time creating this look to share with you guys and it's really got me in the mood for Halloween time, I'm so excited to create more crazy looks like this in the future. Like I said at the beginning of this post, if you'd like to check out Taylor's amazing look then click here or the link located at the top of this post, she did such an incredible job as always.
