SFX | Trypophobia

Do you have Trypophobia? 

A fear of holes. Does it paralyze you? When you see a swarm of jutted holes. Each crater, each dent, each void glaring in front of you. Orifices opened out of it. Pores pouring into you. It desecrates you. It defiles you. It disgusts you. The horde clusters for you. Let it infect you.

So let me ask you again. Do you have Trypophobia?



No, seriously. Do you? Does this disgust you? Or at least go 'WTF Bash?! I thought you were a normal beauty blogger who did normal beauty makeup?! Ya nasty!'

Trypophobia is apparently a recent phenomenon. An irrational fear of clustered holes. It's not even considered a legitimate phobia. Yet still manages to engross and gross people. SciShow has a great explanation about Trypophobia here. Michael muses it might be a survival instinct or an emotional contagion. Whatever it is, it's disgusting.

I have a strange fascination with Trypophobia. Like many people, a swarm of small holes averses me but I can't help to stare. My eyes glisten but my throat holds back a gag. It's a beautiful sight to behold. Even if it does make you grimace. You can't look away, you just stare. It incites an odd feeling, of excitement and horror. 

Oh, how wonderful. 


This is the first look of my Fright Night Series.

I've been planning to do a Trypophobia look for months now. I never did find the time until now though. Something came over though. After coming back home with my makeup still intact, I decided better late than never. October arrived and I shouldn't procrastinate. I set my makeup, and limited amount of Graftobian Scar Wax and started sculpting. 

It didn't take as long as I thought it would. About two or three episodes of Empire long. Once I finished the whole look, I revealed this look to baby sister. She claimed it looked like moldy cheese filled in jam that made her want to gag. What a sweet compliment.


This is where I should explain to you how to achieve this look. I can't because I made it up as I went along. It's my first try so the makeup isn't smooth as I'd like it to be. I didn't have scar wax to spare. I'd definitely try to recreate it one of these days when my scar wax isn't limited. For now, I'm still quite proud of what I've done.

Instead of explaining what to do, here are some helpful videos! Created by MadeYewLook and QueenKingSFX who helped me through the process. They give detailed information and clear instructions.

Warning. It's gross. 




Let me apologize if this disgusted you. Can I also say I hoped I succeeded in my intention of disgusting you?

Hopefully, I'll be doing an SFX look once a week. Time will only tell if this won't take away from exams or vice versa. That's the real horror: exam. A shiver tingles down my back.

If you'd like to get some more inspiration for October, then you follow Hey Bash on bloglovin! Dedicated to the creepy crawlies and glorious gore for this whole month! Because Fright Night is the only time I get too!

So what do you think of Trypophobia? Does it freak you out?

  50. It's really not doing anything to me at all (as in, it doesn't gross me out or anything), but you should have totally seen my boyfriend's reaction when he saw this - he got so grossed out I thought he was gonna puke in bed! :P Interesting post, for sure! <3

  67. Wonderful job with the makeup!

    Though, I think I do have trypophobia... Those pictures disgusted me! I tried to look at them to admire the work, but I couldn't do it for so long. I ended up covering the pictures with my hand so I could read the rest of the post... It even gave me shivers... Awful.

    And no, I'm not watching the videos... I might as well just watch the Saw movies if I do.

    But it was a great makeup job, really! Disgusting, but well-done.

  71. Love this post, but it's definitely hard to look at. I think it's because I had a nightmare one time after seeing a photo with holes all over a woman's breast. It was obviously a photoshopped image, but seeing it freaked me out so much.

  72. Holes in the body = gross. I'm not fearful of it, just gross, haha. Holes in general = nah. The idea that just holes in general could cause discomfort/concern is really intriguing.

    For some reason I got a bit of wonder in the way that was described. And it made me think of the series 'The Looking Glass Wars Trilogy.' It's basically a fanfic about Alice in Wonderland. I love the series with all of my heart. The looking glass is a portal between "Wonderland" and the real world and often it can come in the shape of puddles in the ground. I made that connection immediately and I wondered for the person who would have this fear what a crater large enough to create a deep enough puddle would do to a person--especially on a rainy day.
