5 SIMPLE WAYS TO MASTER HALLOWEEN
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 13 October 2017
*Cady Heron voice* 'It’s Halloween!'. Well, there’s a couple of weeks to go yet, but it’s never too early to start prepping, right? As All Hallows’ Eve is almost upon us, here’s a round-up of the best beauty bits to have you looking top notch, whether you choose to go as a ghoul, a zombie or a witch (or a mouse, duh).
In case the headband and deep-purple lipstick weren’t evidence enough, I always get hyped for Halloween. Whether you’re OTT like me or prefer that subtly spooky look, I’ve found just what you need to become this year’s It girl…
Good news, people – a successful Halloween look is at your fingertips with this false nails set from Elegant Touch. Make like Morticia Addams and get full-on coffin-shaped talons. Bring the horror with the holographic edition which comes with super-strong glue and a handy buffer.
Eyes wide open
If you’re planning on going as a cat this year, no shame, but you’ll need some high-quality liquid eyeliner to see you through the night. Thanks to the extra-fine nib, this black eyeliner pen from Eyeko makes the seemingly impossible task of drawing cat-eye flicks seem simple.
Fake it till you make it
As you already know, Halloween is all about the theatrics. So, from a blood-stained chin to extra-long lashes, fake is the way forward. These lightweight false eyelashes from Eylure are just what you need – only use a small amount of glue, but apply more around the edges to make them stay.
Set the scene
It’s really important to make sure that your face full of ghoulish make-up will survive the festivities. A couple of spritzes of this Barry M setting spray will give your face a neat matte finish – you’ll look like you’ve stepped straight out of your favourite horror film, all night long. Trust.
