FOTN -Halloween!

Here is my super simple (and pretty generic) Halloween look :)
(before I’d done my hair but you get the idea..)
Face:
Mac studio sculpt foundation
Benefit’s boi-ing and erase paste
A tiny bit of benefit’s Hoola & Georgia
Benefit’s hello flawless pressed powder
This was taken at the end of the night so I'm really impressed with how everything lasted :)

Eyes:
Elf’s cream shadow in mocha
Mac’s Brule & carbon (keeping it simple and smokey)
Maxfactor’s false lash effect mascara

The cream shadow I patted with my fingers all over the lid, as a base and then blended carbon in the outer V. To finish off I added Brule around to edges to soften and warm it up- using a light skin toned brown around to edges of a black shadow makes it x10 easier to blend :)

Lips:
Just the BodyShop’s pencil liner
-I nude lip would work just a well, but I loved the idea of just using a liner for a matte lip –it lasts all night without touch ups too!

Cuts:
Revlon’s long lasting liquid lipstick(love this stuff, it stayed put all night!)
Eyeko’s graffiti eyeliner
UD’s underground
Benefit’s coralista

I’ve got to confess I’m not big on Halloween – so I wanted a look that was quick and cheap(I am after all nothing but a poor student) & I think this turned out pretty well :)

You did great with it!

All Made Up said...

Awesome pics but the first thing I noticed is that you're skin is gorgeous and just totally flawless! Probably a bit weird considering you have a couple of bloody gashes there too! - You can tell I'm just too obsessed with skin and foundation these days :)

great make-up, I really need to try and put in more effort next year! Don't think I was actually that scary apart from the results of drunken red lipstick application!
