After a long awaited Halloween, the day has finally arrived. There is something about Halloween that puts a smile on childrens faces, and even the adults. Maybe it's the sweets or the copious amounts of alcohol, or perhaps it's because it's the day to be creative. I have always loved Halloween ever since I was a child, not just because I could eat my weight in sweets but I love the whole dressing up side of it too. I'm not gonna lie, I pretty much went out trick or treating as a witch every year with a bin bag, a broomstick and a witches hat. You're probably thinking what, a bin bag? Yes, trust me it came in handy when it started pouring down with rain.
If you're struggling with ideas on Halloween looks this yearthen don't worry, I've got your back. I have exactly THREE looks to share with you, but there is a certain twist. They just include Maybelline makeup, so it will most definitely not break the bank, plus it's widely available to purchase from the drugstore too. The three looks are the Glam Vamp, Femme Fatale and Dark Temptress which are all perfect for a spooky halloween night out on the town, trick or treating with your child(ren) or a halloween party.
I want to start off by sharing my personal favourite, the Dark Temptress which involves a super dark, sultry lip with dark defined eyes and big lashes.
Using the Rock Nudes Palette(£9.99) apply the beautiful matte purple shade to the outer corner of your lid and across the lower lash line to smoke it out, then pick up the pink and silver shimmer shades and apply them to the inner corner. After you've applied these shades pick up a blending brush to blend all of the shades together so there are no harsh lines.
Create a smokey liner effect using the *Lasting Drama Gel Liner(£7.99). Use the brush included to smooth the liner along the upper lid in an even line.
To achieve a gorgeous sultry come vampy lip use the Loaded Bolds Lipstick in Midnight Merlot(£6.99). It's so creamy on the lips whilst adding a bold pop of colour too.
Now, moving onto the second look, Femme Fatale. It's somewhat of a natural look with a nude lip, spider lashes and a natural eye.
Apply the lightest pink shades from the Rock Nudes Palette to keep the eyes subtle and natural.
To add some definition to the eyes use the ultra fine tip of the Master Precise Liner(£5.99) to apply a thin line on the upper lid, starting from the inner corner and outwards.
This is where you start drawing more attention to the eyes, it's time for mascara. To elongate the lashes and add a humongous amount of volume use the new *Colossal Spider Effect Mascara(£5.99 at the moment).
Now onto the nude lip, the Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in *Nude Thrill(£6.99) is absolutely perfect. Adding a nude lip to the overall makeup look keeps everything toned down and it doesn't take any attention away from the eyes. It's a beautiful shade with a soft, satin texture.
Lastly is the Glam Vamp, which I'm pretty sure most of you will love. A smokey eye paired with a striking, bold lip. I love it.
Let's go back to the Rock Nudes Palette again shall we? To create a super easy, smokey eye apply the black shimmer and purple matte shades from the palette to the outer corner of the lids, then apply that silver shade to the inner corner of the eyes to make your eyes pop and look more open. Then of course it's time to blend, blend, blend!
With every smokey eye you need a black liner surely? Of course you do! Use the thick side of theMaster Precise Curvy(£6.99) and draw full, thick lines along the upper and lower lash line.
Now go all out with the Colossal 100% Black Mascara and apply as many coats of it as you wish to give the effect of beautiful, luscious lashes.
Onto the lips, well what would a smokey eye look be without a sexy red lip eh? The Color Drama Lip Paint in Red-dy or Not(£4.99) is perfect. It makes the lips look so plump and beautiful and the formula feels so nice and comfortable.
I really hope I helped you out here! All three of the looks are absolutely stunning and can be created without spending too much money either.
Will you be opting for any of these looks this Halloween? I would love to know!
