Mui's Look : Halloween Make Up - Barong Inspired Makeup11:47:00 PM
Since it's been a rave among beauty bloggers out there (including Indonesia Beauty Bloggers) creating Halloween inspired makeup. So I would love to dare myself to create a look that perhaps can inspire you to celebrate halloween, though I do not celebrate halloween here :)
Talking about halloween make up , what comes into your mind? Ghost? Skeleton? yes.. you can create something creepy on your face only in Halloween hehe... I never did Halloween make up before, because I am lil bit afraid with what my face will looks like and uhm, I do not like creepy stuffs!
Then this idea ran through my mind, can I do barong inspired make up for halloween? Do you know Barong? Let me introduce you to the well-known Barong from Bali, Indonesia. (hey, Bali is in Indonesia. Some people overseas don't know where Bali is, and keep asking "is Indonesia near Bali?").
Barong is a lion-like creature and character in the mythology of Bali, Indonesia. He is the king of the spirits, leader of the hosts of good, and enemy ofRangda, the demon queen and mother of all spirit guarders in the mythological traditions of Bali. The battle between Barong and Rangda is featured in Barong dance to represent the eternal battle between good and evil.Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barong_(mythology)
To be honest, I'm a lil bit afraid, is it OK to create Barong look? You know, every little thing about Bali mythology is very mystical, and I did have mystical experience during my vacation in Bali long time ago when I was a kid. I pray first you know before did the make up huiks... hehe....
I used crayon for face painting like the picture below :
