Your make-up on Halloween is just as essential as your outfit. As an added extra this Halloween I have decided to change the colour of my eyes for the night. This is to create the perfect spooky look. To change the colour of my dark brown eyes I used contact lenses from VisionDirect.co.uk. The colours I had to choose from were amethyst, turquoise and gemstone green.
I picked amethyst as purple is my favourite colour and amethyst is quite close to that. They looked amazing when I put them in, as my eyes are dark brown the contacts did not look that bright on top of my own eyes but the subtle amethyst colour on top of them gave them a Halloween glow. I was now ready to sort out my Halloween make-up. First I had to choose what I would go as, as I had been invited to few Halloween parties and my aim was to stand out and look my best.
After an hour of racking my brain and searching the Internet for ideas I decided on a vampy look with a spiders web to complement it. Who wouldn’t love a vampy look with a creepy spiders web? To achieve the right look I went to Chez Titine salon in Leamington Spa. Jane who is a qualified make-up artist always does an excellent job and I knew if I attempted the look myself things could go terribly wrong. With Jane’s help I was on the way to a Halloween look I could be proud of.
1. Jane started the look by dabbing on white face paint to all areas of my face (this was done using a cloth).
2. Black eye shadow was then brushed onto my forehead, cheekbones and chin.
3. Using a black eye pencil Jane filled in my eyebrows so they would stand out.
4. Jane then concentrated on my eyes using a black eye pencil to draw on my top and bottom eyelids and then finally flicking the pencil slightly at the end for a winged effect.
5. Black eye shadow was then added to the eyeliner to make my eyes pop. This was added to both the top and bottom of my eyelids.
6. Using black eyeliner Jane proceeded to draw on the spider web above and below my eye. Jane referred to a picture as she did this.
7. My lips then had black lip liner drawn around them.
8. Red lip liner was then used to draw inside of the black lip liner.
9. The last step was the colouring in of my lips with red lipstick.
In the picture posted above you can see me without the contacts, then with the contacts and white face paint and then the completed look.
