Are you ready for a spooky and spectacular weekend? Halloween is on the way (Saturday, 31st October, 2020) and it’s time to get your looks and outfits in order. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in or out, or what makeup look you have planned for the day (or night), we’ve got some quirky makeup essentials for Halloween that are guaranteed to add to your cosmetic collection and kick your costume up a notch.
Vampire Red Lipstick
A classic, but you can’t go wrong… Blood red lips work perfectly as part of a ‘vampire’ makeup look and is ideal for the spooky-season. The NARS Audacious Lipstick in the shade Charlotte is a deep red colour and is a go-to for any vamp-inspired look! Whether you prefer a matte, gloss or ombre finish, this is the perfect time to experiment. Alternatively, go for a completely different dark purple lipstick shade if you feel as though this is more suited to you!
Create the ultimate spider eye look this halloween by adding some spider web false eyelashes to your look. Enhance your lashes and make them stand out more than ever, it’s definitely one way to up your eyelash game this Halloween… Another way to create this spook-tacular look is to use liquid eyeliner or eye pencil and draw on spiders and a web around the eyes and face – Pinterest have thousands of inspiration photos, so it’s time to get arty!
Experiment with Eyeshadow
Halloween is the perfect opportunity to experiment with a range of different eyeshadow shades, tones and hues to get your goal look. Whether you’re opting for the ultra-glam look (think Morticia Adams on the red carpet) or go for a smokey eyeshadow look and finish off with thick mascara and eyeliner, this Halloween is the year to up your makeup game. The Black Magic Color Palette by UOMA Beauty contains highly-pigmented and shimmery shades and tones that will make your eyes and face stand out in the crowd (or on your Halloween Zoom party)…
Another addition to your makeup look is glitter, because how else will you catch someones attention this Halloween? Add some sparkle and apply some glitter near the eyes, on the cheekbones or all over the face if you’re feeling extra adventurous. With so many glitter colour options, you could also emulate the ‘zipper trend’, create a starry-eyed look, create the mermaid look or apply glitter eyeshadow on your eyelids for a bright, super glamorous and stunning look. Whatever vibe you’re going for, make sure you use eco-friendly glitter to do your bit for the planet.
