Halloween is almost here and we can smell it in the air. Eveywhere I look, I see something “Halloweeny” and it feels cool. While growing up, we never celebrated Halloween. It was one of those things we saw on TV and I didn’t quite understand the hype. It is just one of those celebrations I think is massively commercialised, but it is fun for many grown ups and kids, so it is worth talking about. I am kind of into it now, well sort of..
I published a Halloween Makeup Look this time last year and I remember it being fun to create. I messed about with my wigs and makeup bag contents and came up with this look below.
I was going for a proper spooky look and I think nailed. It was a collaboration makeup post for a brand and my look was the spookiest of all, lol.
I see many beauty and lifestyle bloggers creating various Halloween makeup looks and I thought to share a few Halloween beauty tips that have worked for me –
Make Use of What You Have in your Makeup Bag
I didn’t buy any new makeup for this look. Although I was initially contemplating buying some colourful palettes. I decided to save money and make use of what I had in my makeup bag. So the whitish look was created with my MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. The green you see is my green MAC Eyeshadow to go with the green contact lenses I had on. The dark lips was created using my Rimmel Eyeliner.
The Spookier, the Better
I applied many layers of makeup to ensure my look was very spooky. Halloween is all about the spooky looks and that is what I love about it. So go all out with your Halloween makeup. Get the layers on!
Take it Off
Take off the many layers of makeup as soon as you can to avoid breakouts and other skin issues. I would recommend you make use of a face wash to ensure every trace of makeup is wiped off. Ensure you apply a nourishing moisturiser right after to soothe your skin.
Read Blogs/Watch YouTube Videos
If you are lacking inspiration, go on blogs and Youtube channels for some Halloween insoiration. There are many looks about now so I am sure you will be inspired by a couple.
And if the scary Halloween makeup looks are not right up your street, just go dark. A natural makeup with a dark lipstick is all you need.
