It’s that time of the year when having bags under your eyes is a good thing. Whether they’re intentional or not, make-up is the maker of great Halloween looks. These products will make you boo-tiful!
For creating artful looks, hollows, tinted skin, ombre, we just love to use:
Smoke it up with the Bourjois Smoky Stories Quad Eye Shadow Palette. The three colour palettes allow you to go bright and bold or dark and daring! Apply the lighter shade just under the arch to highlight the eyelids, followed by the medium shade on the lids for some intensity. Back that up with the dark shade at the roots of the lashes to underline the lashes. Lastly, apply the light touch in a solid layer as a top coat for some glitter.
For black hollows: Revlon ColorStay Crème Eye Shadow in licorice
For a geisha flush or fleshy tones: Rimmel Royal Blush Cream
For strobing and ethereal glows: Revlon PhotoReady Collection Highlighting Palette
Contouring and ghoulish hollows: Maybelline Master Contour Duo Shaper
Liquid liner is a must for whiskers and bat-winged eyes: This Maybelline Master Ink Liquid liner comes in mesmerising metallic.
Swipe on a powerful lip to tie your Halloween costume together. If you’re going for a dark and gloomy witch, try Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry. Otherwise, try Soft Silver Rose for a soft, blush tone if you’re leaning towards the angel theme.
