Halloween Makeup

Witches and ghouls welcome! All Hallows Eve conjures up our deepest fear and most whimsical fantasies. Whether you’re the vial and gory type or ethereal and love the magical side of things, Halloween is the excuse to go all out!

The Undead!!!

For all of you “Walking Dead”, or Anne Rice novels fans, here’s a look that can used for either a Zombie or Vampire costume.

The idea is to look as pale and tired as possible. Forget your concealer!!!! Use brownish and purple eyeshadows to create deep bags under the eyes (the one time this is ok). Contour your cheekbones as much as possible because you want to look super thin (Liquid diets and starving till you find some flesh will do that you). To finish off, use a deep red liquid lipstick to create a bloody mouth (Yum!)

Creepy Doll!!

This one creeps people out the most. There isn’t anything scarier than an innocent looking child, or doll with a killer streak.

Start of with a pale uniform and matte complexion. Use a white matte eyeshadow under your eyes to create the illusion of bigger eyes (A la lady Gaga), and use a black liquid liner to trace your “new” eyes. Go as wild and bold with colorful eyeshadows to further enhance your big eyes, and apply generous coats of mascara on the TOP lashes. Create fake bottom lashes. Put some blush on as usual (go a little heavier on the pink), and add some freckles. Create a little heart mouth in red, and draw lines on the corners on your mouth and add the sutures (creepyyyy).

Dark Fairy!

This one is for people (like me…), who love all things magic with a slight sinister edge. Anyone else a Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings/ Dark Hunters/ Incarnations of Immortality fan here? No?… Just me? Moving on…

This one is a little easier. Use a flat eyeshadow brush to create a petal like pattern all over your eyes to make a butterfly like mask. Use any color from the same scheme. The trick is to have very pigmented eyeshadows because you’ll be patting the brush down. Use your liquid liner to create fluid lines on the edge of your eyes (Get creative!). Use a light blush, highlight in key areas, and a natural lipstick… Voilà!

Happy Halloween!

Pre-Halloween

BLACK SWAN, ROCK of AGES and EGYPTIAN WOMAN …. WHAT’S YOUR COSTUME?

Halloween is a day away and we love the whole “dress up” experience that comes with it. An excuse to dress up and try out outfits and styles that are not found in your typical wardrobe without forgetting your not-so-ordinary make-up and hair!

Whether a wig, funky hats, fun lashes, tacky shoes, old-fashioned clothes, everything goes on Halloween!

Check out those cool feather lashes !

Heavy eye make-up and bright lips? Yes you can!

Home-made costumes like these are more fun and easy to make.

So, what are YOU going to be for Halloween?
