If big orange pumpkin suits or white sheets with eye holes aren’t really your style, you can’t go wrong with some sophisticated old school vampire glamour – here are our top picks to help you achieve the perfect blood sucking look:
For the vampire look pale porcelain white skin is a must. Begin by applying a primer with a green undertone such as this colour correcting primer from Smashbox. The green undertones will neutralise any red patches and dark spots and will also smooth out and even your skin tone for the perfect base.
These lashes may be pricy but there is no denying their beauty. Full and thick at the base thinning off into spidery wisps at the end. If looks could kill…
3. Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon £25
Red lips are standard procedure for a vamp, and though any bright red lipstick will suffice, this is undoubtedly the crème de la crème. It is actually a lip-gloss liquid formula as opposed to a lipstick and this is what makes it so utterly ideal for this look. Instead of a matte finish, this very rich opaque blood red has a glossy finish, giving your lips that just bitten appearance.
This is the palest shade of this medium to high coverage foundation. We suggest that you build up a few layers for high coverage and then set with a translucent powder for staying power.
This palette is simply stunning, and contains 3 beautiful shades – black with red pearls, black with purple pearls and black with gunmetal shimmer. All colours are extremely pigmented and offer a slightly spookier alternative to a matte black smoky eye.
