It’s spooky season, witches!
With Halloween right around the corner you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d run out of time to come up with a cute and spooky makeup look. Those things take days, if not weeks to plan and put together, right? Wrong! You don’t have to spend a fortune and have a fine art degree to look spook-tacular on Halloween.
The lovely Lauren from our Trend Team has put together two looks that are quick and easy to replicate using products that you’ll have lying around at home. The only dilemma you’ll have is deciding which one to go for!
Look 1: Leopard
To create this look all you’ll need is a jet-black liquid eyeliner. Yes, you read that correctly. You only need one product!
Follow your usual routine for your skin and base (we love using the Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer as it hides a multitude of sins) and take the Benefit Roller Liner and start to map out where you want the Leopard spots to go. You can have them as an accent on the side of your face like Lauren or go all out and cover your entire face. It’s completely up to you!
The trick to getting the perfect Leopard spot is to use your Roller Liner on its side rather than using the tip. This way you’ll get a consistent size and shape on all your spots. Drag the Roller Liner on its side about 1cm and then repeat in varying lengths in a rough circular shape. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be perfect!
Once you’re happy with your spots you can then move onto your nose. This time you should use the tip of the Roller Liner to ensure you get a smooth, crisp line. Draw a straight line across the tip of your nose, around your nostrils and down to where your nose meets your upper lip, then fill it in. To go that little bit further, use the Roller Liner to give yourself some amazing cat winged eyeliner!
Look 2: Skull
For this creepy skull look you need just two products! Again, follow your usual routine for your skin and base and then use the BAGgal BANG! 24 Hour Eye Pencil in Black to draw a line from the middle of your ear, along your cheekbone until it meets the corner of your mouth. Then colour in the inner part of your lips with the liner and smudge using the built-in smudger tool.
Next draw faint lines across your lips to give the illusion of skull teeth. Then take the liner and colour in the tip of your nose.
To create creepy shadow effects, take the liner and faintly line the side of your nose and under your eyes before smudging out with the smudger.
The last step is to take the Hoola Matte Bronzer and bronze along the line you drew on your cheek. This will add even more depth and shadows to your finished look.
And there we have it Benebabes! You’re all set to go to the ball… or graveyard, whatever floats your boat! Have a great night and slaaaaaaay it honey!
