Get The Look: Halloween Glam
It's October and that can only mean one thing: a month of Halloween SFX and makeup goodness!
But that doesn't necessarily mean we all want to get our blood and gore on so I wanted to create the best of both worlds. So for each Halloween look I do this month I am going to create a complimentary glam version.
This orange and black look perfectly complements my evil Jack O' Lantern look and below I breakdown how you can get the look!
For this look I did my eye makeup first. That way if there was any shadow fall out I could easily wipe it off before applying my foundation and base. I used shadows from the Morphe Brushes 35O Palette (shades circled below) but feel free to use your favourite eyeshadows to create this look.
Prep the eyelids using 'Painterly' Pro Longwear Paint Pot by M.A.C Cosmetics to create a smooth base. To set the eyelid base dust a matte neutral shadow (I used the first shadow in the top row of the Morphe 350 Palette) over the entire lid. This will make it easier to blend the shadows and ensure the base isn't sticky.
With a small fluffy brush apply a matte light warm brown shadow (I used the first shadow in the third row of the Morphe 350 Palette) into and just above the crease to create a transition shade. Go back and forth in a fast, light handed motion to blend and create a transition shade.
Then take another small blending fluffy brush and apply a matte dark orange shadow (I used the seventh shadow in the third row of the Morphe 350 Palette) into the crease only, again going back and forth to blend it with the light warm brown shadow.
Then on a flat brush pick up a matte bright orange shadow (I used the seventh shadow in the top row of the Morphe 350 Palette) and pack it onto the entire mobile lid. Once applied take a clean fluffy brush and lighting blend over the top of the eyelid to fuse the shadows together.
For the lower lash line, take a pencil brush and apply the same matte bright orange shadow to the entire lower lash line and then take the same matte dark orange shadow and apply it to the outer corner to add dimension. Lightly blend over the top of both shades with a clean fluffy brush to smoke it out. Dot the inner corner of the eye with a pearly white shimmer shadow for that inner glow!
Create a winged eye line using the Kat Von D 'Tattoo Liner' or your liquid eyeliner of choice and then coat the top and bottom lashes with Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara before applying Model Rock Lashes to add some lash drama! To define the lash line and hide the lash band, sweep the liquid liner over the band and upper lash line.
Shape and feather the brows using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in 'Medium Brown' and lightly apply Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to hold any natural brow hairs in place.
Hydrate and prime the skin by applying Avon's Luxe Fabulous Finish Primer to the entire face to create a smooth base and to reduce any visible pores.
For foundation I used the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation for a full coverage. I applied stripes to my face and neck before blending it out with the Artis Elite Mirror Collection Oval 10 Brush.
Conceal under the eyes using the it Cosmetics 'Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer' to eliminate any dark circles and blend out using a damp Beautyblender.
Once done, set under the eyes and face using the Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder.
Highlight the tops of the cheeks, brow bone, tip of the nose and cupids bow with 'Taffy' from the Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Sweets' Glow Palette using a fan brush.
For this look I applied the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in 'Celebrity Skin' for a nude pout!
