It’s October and we all know what that means – Halloween! Whether you’re a Halloween fanatic and pull off a fantastically crafted costume each year or you prefer to keep it simple, we have some great Halloween make up picks for you.
Make sure you look after and nourish your skin. When creating the perfect Halloween look we often apply more make-up than usual, so you need to be sure your skin is well moisturised and cleansed.
Head along to The Bodyshop and pick up the bestseller, Vitamin E moisture cream for £12.
Smoky eyes add a dramatic effect to any Halloween look. You can create the ultimate smoky eyes, with black and metallic colours. Blend a dark shade from your lashes to the crease, and then, use a small, angled brush to drag the shadow along your lower lash lines. Add silver, white to create a shimmery and sexy element. There shouldn’t be any harsh lines when you’re applying eyeshadow, make sure you blend all colours evenly.
Go to Boots and try the Miss Sporty Studio Colour Quattro Eyeshadow for just £2.99. You can also pick up a No7 Smudger Brush for £8.
To build on your smoky, dramatic eyes how about wearing some fake eyelashes? Bodycare offers a variety of lashes for discount prices or Superdrug has a great range of Halloween lashes.
Try Eylure Halloween Lashes – Spooky, styled on a spider’s web to finish off your creepy Halloween eyes for £2.99.
Superdrug offers a great selection of lip colours. Bold, red lips will add a theatrical element to your Halloween make up look.
Try Bourjois Rouge Edition – Rouge Jet Set for £7.99 or Barry M Lip Paint Cranberry Red for £4.49. For an extra defined look, finish with a shiny red gloss such as Rimmel London Oh My Gloss Rebel Red for £5.49.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without some witchy nails, would it? Finish off your Halloween make up look by sculpting your nails.
Head along to Diva Nails if you want to treat yourself to a manicure and acrylic nails. Alternatively Boots have a brilliant selection of nails to apply yourself at home.
