a halloween beauty look

I remember my senior year in college, halloween weekend was the most important (insert social) time
of the year. Costumes took careful planning and roommates dressed in pairs. The weekend meant
prepping for multiple characters and outfits. And though halloween is something I haven’t really
embraced since my college days, I feel as if I’ve grown out of those days. Maybe in the future, but
this year I was invited to a little gathering that will celebrate all things autumn and ghoulish
moments sans costume (because it’s a more professional setting). So I decided to still embrace
the halloween spirit and translate a beauty look to fit the occasion.

what you need

Just click the item to go to the product page. The carousel includes an eyeshadow brush,
smudge brush, eyeshadow blending brush, royal kaki palette by Dior, YSL 206 lip lacquer, red lip liner.

step one

Start off with a nude palette. I like to add my concealer and foundation, but don’t apply the
blush or powder. Start with the ‘eyeshadow brush’ and select the gunpowder silver color
and brush it onto the entirety of your lid.

step two

Then with the ‘smudge brush’ select the black shadow and line the lash line as if you’re
applying eyeliner. Then take the brush up from the outer corner of your eye and move up the
crease just until you’re at the middle of your eye.

step three

Take the ‘blending brush’ and apply a bit of the gold shadow to the center of your eyelid and
gradually blend moving outwards toward the black from step two. This help bring the look together.

step four

Then apply a thin layer of eyeliner and mascara as you would and finish your face with a
translucent powder and a blusher of choice.

final step & mastering a lip

Using a red lip liner, line and fill in your lips completely. This will help keep the color
for a longer period of time and will give it a more natural application. Then apply the lipstick
generously and using your finger, blend it in. This ensure that you get an even application.
