Halloween is just over a week away, which means costume planning is already underway. If you’re the type of person (like us) who is more concerned with what’s going on your face, it’s time to embrace beauty’s dark side.
From vampy lips to novelty glitter, here are our favourite beauty tricks and treats.
Planning on playing dead? Whether you’re going for zombie or vampire, this super pigmented pure-white foundation is ideal for creating a ghostly white skintone. What’s more it’s easy to apply and locks down to last all night long.
There’s nothing scary about glitter, right? Take a close look. These miniature bats (in three seasonal colourways) can be used to create both bold and subtle Halloween looks. Position a few to the corner of your eye or go all out and scatter over your cheekbones, highlighter-style.
Falsies are the perfect finishing touch to any strong eye makeup look, so it makes sense that (even when off-duty) witches would opt for something as full and feathery as these. Pair with some spooky black contact lenses for just the right amount of spooky.
Smoky eyes are always in – and never more so than on October 31st. The black pigment is as dark as your soul, and for those who like sparkle (because it is 2017 after all) the shimmer will take your look from goth to glam.
With a name like Dearest, it might not sound that scary, but this deep rich red is ideal for a vampire-inspired beauty look – which obviously wouldn’t be complete without a dark blood-red lip. Pair with fangs to amp the fear-factor.
It won’t transform you into the corpse bride, but it’s still pretty magical. To ensure that your hard work doesn’t fade away (literally), spritz this over your final look and you’ll instantly be cry-proof, sweat-proof, and weather-proof.
