Halloween Makeup Using Everyday Makeup

 
For those of you who need a last minute outfit, this is perfect! Apart from the fake blood on my mouth, which can be achieved with lipstick anyway, I haven't used any face paint or anything you won't find in your makeup draw! The next 10 steps will easily guide you to the finished look...
 
 1) Of course begin with a clear face. I then used my vitamin E moisture mask from The body shop to moisturise my face.


2) Prime, conceal and apply a foundation. For this look I recommend using a paler foundation than your skin tone as it adds to the look.


3) Using a black eye shadow, I have contoured my face, blending out as I do so.


4) I have used a pale cream eye shadow on the base of my lid...
 


5) Then used a liquid eyeliner to draw two triangles on my lids. It was so hard to get them even! Some people like to invest in the creepy contact lenses, though this is a free alternative!


 
 6) For the lips I have planned out using two dots where I am going to make a line to...

 7) Then joined them up with my lips using a lip liner. These lines don't need to be 100% symmetrical as once you start talking and smiling you don't stay still enough for people to notice!


8) Taking my Rimmel lipstick (as talked about in this post) I am filling in my lips to make them brighter and bolder.


9) I then went back and applied some mascara and filled in my eyebrows with a black pencil eye liner (I wouldn't do this on a daily basis if I were you)


10) To finish the look I had some fake blood from a previous year which I used to dribble down from my lips! If of course you don't have fake blood, I would take a lip brush and your red lipstick and paint on some blood drips! This will also help even out any uneven lines created earlier :)




For my outfit I paired a H&M crop top with my Miss Selfridge black skirt - then my shoes are from New Look!



Thank you for reading + Happy Halloween!

Love,
Abi
