Alex Vause OITNB makeup tutorial makes the perfect Halloween costume
Do you secretly wish you could be an inmate at Litchfield Correctional Facility (no judgement here)? Have you binge watched Orange is the New Black into oblivion? You can transform into one of the bosses herself, Alex Vause, this Halloween. Not only is this look super on trend and relevant but so easy…especially if you are already a glasses-wearing brunette like me!
You will need:
- Eye primer
- Black liquid eyeliner
- Brow pencil
- Rose lip balm
- Scrubs and/or prison jumpsuit
For being a prisoner, Alex has some pretty nice skin! Conceal any redness or imperfections. No need to powder. I doubt she’s spending her commissary on that.
Now use a concealing eye primer to cancel out any discoloration on the eyelids.
Use a piece of tape as a guide for the perfect winged liner, an Alex Vause trademark.
Create Alex’s signature wings with a black liquid liner, running it along the top lash line and along your tape guide.
Remove the tape to reveal winged liner so sharp it could cut you like a shiv.
Now create Alex’s rounded, defined brow shape with a brow pencil.
Using any old mascara, apply to top and bottom lashes. Don't go crazy though. It's just prison.
Give lips a light tint with a lip stain.
Apply a generous amount of tinted lip balm. I imagine Alex was a fan of Carmex. I don't know why.
Put on your glasses, real or fake!
