So excited to share with you my second of 3 halloween looks! I am so not one for fancy dress, or so I thought. But I have to admit this was such a fun look to create! The best part about halloween make up is that it doesn’t have to be precise, at all- in fact, the sloppier the better. I don’t think I spent more than 30 minutes on this look and you would never know that. I hope?

Step 1: I went for my typical Lancôme ‘teint miracle’ foundation over my Chanel primer and followed this step by filling in my eyebrows with my goof-proof brow pencil. I then went a little crazy with my black eyeliner pencil!

Step 2: Create a contour line starting from the top of your ears towards your cheekbones and reaching the sides of your mouth

Step 3: Use a black eyeshadow to fill in the hollows of your cheeks

Step 4: Use a light foundation or a nude lipstick on the lips (I used ‘myth’ by MAC) and then with a thin black liner pen draw lines to create the effect of stitches on the lips

Step 5: Use black eyeshadow to draw in the tip of your nose

Step 6: Add gems and headgear of your choice! I used my Duo eyelash glue to stick the gems securely in place.

Step 7: Use false lashes and eyeshadow for a more glam look! I used Red Cherry lashes (here) and my Urban Decay Naked 1 palette.

et voilà!

If you decide to recreate this look please tag me- I’d love to see your creations!
