Easy Halloween Makeup Looks x4

Monday, October 21, 2013
Here are four final Halloween makeup looks that are super easy to copy and alter to suit your style and costume to wrap up my Halloween makeup series, I hope you liked the series - it was so fun to make, I love experimenting with makeup and this was a great excuse! If you have recreated any of the looks from my series, leave your link in the comments below!
1. Patchwork Doll: This is really quite Tim Burton inspired (he is definitely my favourite director). I have been watching Corpse Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas over the past week and I decided to create a look inspired by those films but an easy version! Firstly, I didn't use white makeup I used my new favourite foundation - Max Factor Smooth Effect Foundation in the shade 45 Creamy Ivory. I then just took a matte black shadow from the Sleek oh so special palette and drew lines and crosses over the face and filled them in with different coloured shadows from the MUA Undressed palette and the Sleek palette. Filled in my brows with a matte black shadows and I applied a small amount of the Revlon Balm Stain in the shade Crush to the lips - and that is it, so easy!

2. Vampire Queen: This is my favourite makeup out of these four looks, love it! I used the Barry M Creme Foundation in White and I contoured my cheeks with a matte black eyeshadow and I used the same black shadow on my brows to thicken, darken and lengthen them. I applied the illamasqua cream pigment in the shade 'hollow' as a base - love this product it is great as an eyeshadow and or contouring. For the eyes, I use a couple of matte browns from Sleek and MUA palettes and applied them all over the lids and along the lower lash line. I just applied and blended until it looked smokey and a bit sultry. I use a black shadow along the upper/lower lashline and in the outer corner for more depth. I use a little of the sexy plump mascara by Yves Rocher on the upper lashes only. On the lips I have Yves Rocher Framboise. 

3. Undead Zombie: This look is really quite messy and it is supposed to be - I started with the Barry M white foundation, then I buffed in a small amount of the matte purple/brown/black shadows from the Sleek oh so special palette over the skin to make it look bruised and undead...I took the matte brown and purple over and around the eyes too to make them look sunken. I then applied some lip balm and wiped of the excess and applied ELF lipstick in the shade Fantasy. I the patted the matte purple and black shadows over the lips and smudged it. I also lightly filled in the brows and contoured. 

4. Evil Witch: This was a complete impulse, look I wasn't even going to make a witch look as it is so overdone but this look just happened while playing with makeup! A lot of Barry M white foundation, fairly heavy contouring with a matte black shadow and strong dark brows. I applied the same matte black from the sleek palette onto and around the eyes then I use a shimmery gold from the MUA undressed palette over the lids. I used a ELF liquid liner as a base for the eyes so the black shadow would be more intense. I took the gold under the eyes too and the black lines around the eyes are optional. For the lips, I use some lip balm again and I wiped off the excess - I applied some of the gold, tan and pinky shades from numerous palettes to the lips to create a gold/burnt orange shimmery lip - smudging is optional. 

I hope you liked the looks in this series! Happy almost Halloween x
