Glam Games | (Five Nights At Freddy's) Puppet Inspired Makeup

Glam Games: where we produce makeup looks inspired by video games, 'cause makeup and video games are two of some of our favorite things. For this first instalment, we decided to go with a very popular entry in the horror genre: Five Nights At Freddy's. In particular, we went with the puppet because of its IN-YOUR-FACE-GTFO-JUMPSCARES.

I wasn't in the mood to do the makeup on myself AND keep tabs on filming simultaneously, so I Alex my guinea pig instead. As this is only an inspired look, I wanted to make this wearable -- 'wearable' in a sense that it was nothing too theatrical and literal from the actual character.

Taking cues from the puppet's seemingly empty eye sockets, I went for a smokey eye with an accent of purple as the embodiment of its 'tear tracks.' A touch of white was added to the outer section -- tracing the eyeliner -- as an ode to the puppet's overall white face. The falsies were just an added touch to pseudo-mimic the winged angle of the puppet's eyes. I used a light hand with a red blush as I didn't want the look to come off as too 'clowny,' As for the lips, I opted out of going all out doll-pout in favor of a gradient approach instead.

Here's a more 'artistic' photo of the look where we tried to embody the puppet's abrupt springing at you with its jumpscare. Alex and I plan on making more of these in the future, and if you've got any ideas for video game inspired makeup looks, hit us up with your suggestions!
