5 Hottest & Quickest Halloween Makeup Looks

Posted on: 29/10/2015, by @DanielleAlexandra

With Halloween just around the corner, you don't have to stick to traditions and go for the typical scary face of white facepaint, fake blood and fangs. Halloween can still be glamourous! So put down the costume makeup and get ready to still look and feel as glam as you always do! Follow these simple tips and techniques for a seasonal look that still gives you an edge. 

Kiss of Death

Make a statement and draw attention with a bold lip colour, fierce enough to make Morticia Addams herself go green with envy! Why not trade ruby red lips and go all out with a raven black or a punchy plum hue? It's both daring and complements fair skin as well as dark skin. Why not slick some MAC Instigator on for a deep plum shade? 


Nailed It!

No outfit is complete without the right nail art, and these spider web matte black nails are the perfect mix of gothy glam to help set off whatever you're going as this year! Barry M's Espresso is a great matte nail polish with added chipping protection.

Lady In Red

A perhaps more unorthadox eyeshadow colour, red is a great choice to vamp up your eyewear for the evening, and to look a little bit devilish at this time of year. And even better, red is a complimentary colour to green and hazel eyes, so apply some red for a knock out smize! MAC's Basic Red Shadow Pigment has bluish undertones, and subtle sweep is enough to create a fiery look.


Witching Hour

A trend that took us all by (and caused a) storm was "granny chic" grey hair, and what better excuse to go for grey than at Halloween! And who knows, this could be a fashion statement you could rock throughout the whole of autumn and winter if you're brave enough to dye your hair and become an ice maiden for the season. Cult brand Crazy Color offers a grey dye bound to suit all hair types.

Midnight Mermaid

Transform yourself into a siren of sparkle by glitzing up your eyebrows. An unsual yet funky twist on glitter eye makeup, these are sure to be a knockout, and eyebrows really do frame a girl's face... so why not glitter up that frame! For a subtle sparkle, try applying fine amounts of Barry M's Silver Fine Glitter Dust.
