Tomorrow is Halloween! For beauty lovers everywhere this is a great excuse to experiment with your make-up. Type ‘Halloween make-up tutorials’ into YouTube and you’ll be inundated with cool special-effect style ideas.
But what about those of us who want to recognise Halloween, but don’t want a full face of theatrical make-up? Embrace Halloween in a subtle way with these easy make-up ideas:
Pop on some cat ears and be bold with your winged liner to look like the cat who got the cream. As well as extending the wing of your eyeliner up towards your temple, you could also extend the inner corners a little for a truly feline flick.
Pumpkin coloured eyeshadow
Deep oranges are big news in the beauty world at the moment, so why not make the most of this trend with pumpkin coloured eyeshadow? Opt for a deep burnt orange shade and team with black liner and plenty of mascara. Keep your lips neutral and make this look all about the eyes.
Gothic goes glam
The Goth look always makes a comeback at this time of year. Embrace your inner Goth in a modern way with a gold smokey eye, dark lip and a cool-toned, highlighted base.
Let your vampy side out with this look. Find a burgundy eyeshadow and blend it out with a touch of shimmer before applying some individual false lashes. Pair with a contoured base and deep red lips.
Halloween is the perfect time to try a bright purple lip. Ensure your lips are exfoliated and hydrated before applying a matte bold purple. Keep the rest of your look simple with defined lashes and an even base.
