Halloween Look

Just thought I'd do a quick post showing you my Halloween look I wore last night.  I went on a ghost walk around Bristol and then for a drink.  I didn't dress up and I wasn't in character, but I decided that as Halloween is one of the few times of the year that you can really go wild with hair and makeup, I'd experiment with a creative look.  As ever, my camera washes out the colours - it was much more dramatic in real life, honest!

I'd had my false eyelashes applied earlier from Shu Uemura, so I had to work around them.  First of all I primed my eyes with UDPP.  Then I used a silver base from my Revlon Precious Metals eye quad, and put No. 7 Perfect Eye Mouse in Pewter on top.  For my crease colour, which I extended upwards way beyond my crease, I used Psychodelic Sister from the Urban Decay Book of Shadows III.  In the inner V and to define my crease, I used a black sparkly colour from the Coastal Scents Warm 88 Palette, and a tiny bit of pure black in the very inner V just to add final definition.  I used a white colour from this palette for a highlighter.  Underneath the eye I smudged Rockstar from the UD BOS III.

For my brows, I used a No. 7 pencil.  I thickened and extended my Shu Uemura liner using Mac Blacktrack, used Mac Smoulder on my waterline and put on more mascara (Chanel Inimitable Intense).

Whoops - wonky lip liner!  I did sort it out later!

I used a No. 7 lipstick, but I can't remember the name, with my Illamasqua liner.  I think I used Prestige blusher.

I didn't dress up, but I did wear a leather-look top I bought in the Next sale for £8 - bargain!  I thought I'd rock up my look a bit!

Did you do any special hair and makeup for Halloween?

Thanks for reading! xx

Woo! Check you out! Brows are amazing. I wish I had clean brows - does that even make any sense? Wish I'd got the BOS but they're an absolute fortune on eBay!
I'll always remember the Halloween parties in Bristol. I went to an EXTREMELY cheesy one at Oceana and had an absolute ball. Lots of laughs.
You look lovely! Thanks for sharing xx
