SPOOKY-SZN INSPO: MAKEUP EDITION

Ahh Halloween... [Insert Mean Girls quote here 😉] We’ve had two years to prep 2K21’s spooky-szn looks, but if like us you’ve left it a little last min, DW. We’ve got TikTok star Amber Pitkin (@amberpitkin) to give us some inspo (ft. makeup magic from Revolution and Huda Beauty). Just slapping on some fake blood is soooo 2019; this year we're going all out with looks including a soul-sucking siren and Frankenstein's monster 🎃👻🦇 Prepare to take notes 📝

LOOK ONE: THE SPIDER

For this look, the eyes bring enough drama, so Amber kept the base simple. She used her normal foundation, followed by Revolution’s Conceal and Correct Concealer in Banana Deep to brighten her under-eyes, and then set them with the Revolution Loose Baking Powder in Banana Deep. Then, she flattened down the eyebrows using a glue stick, covering the ends with a full-coverage concealer and using Charlotte Tilbury’s Brow Cheat to draw the brow ends. Next, she stuck In Your Dreams Halloween Black Merlinite Face Stickers along the brow bone.

And, for the most fun part, she used a red face paint to draw blood drips under the eyes, and stuck rhinestones over the paint using eyelash glue. ASOS cheat: you can also use liquid lipstick instead of face paint. Barry M’s Lip Liner in Plum, the Huda Beauty Power Bullet Lipstick, highlighter and some false lashes will finish off this look, perfectly.

LOOK TWO: THE SIREN

The scare factor on this one is 💯 To begin with, Amber used the Revolution Creator Halloween SFX Face Paint Palette to cover her skin with a blue base, using a Real Techniques Miracle Sponge for an even finish. Top tip: if you're trying this look at home, make sure to set the paint with a translucent powder, which’ll stop you leaving blue on everything (and everyone)! *Blushes*

Amber then used the dark blue and purple shades in the Revolution Reloaded Marvellous Mattes Palette to contour her cheekbones, nose, chest, lips and to add depth to the eye sockets. Then, she used the Revolution Creator Revolution Face Paint Palette and mixed blue and black to create a dark-blue lip line. To take it up a notch, add fake teeth and lenses, and create those black drips from the eyes and mouth – Amber even made her own prosthetics, so this is your chance to get creative! 🎨

LOOK THREE: FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER

What better way to turn heads than by turning yourself into a straight-up green monster? Amber made a headpiece for this look, using cardboard, liquid latex and a bald cap, but you can keep it simple by using Revolution’s Face Paint for a base and then add some yellow tones onto areas you want to highlight, followed by some translucent powder. To add depth, use the dark green shade from Revolution’s Marvellous Mattes on the cheeks, forehead and your collar bones, and you can use a dark brown to create forehead lines and wrinkles around the mouth and chin. Amber topped it off with fake hair and painted bolts onto some card, which she then glued onto her neck with liquid latex. Beast mode: activated.
