Halloween Makeup Picks
I’ve never been one to go all out with Halloween makeup, I usually keep it quite subtle, but I always make sure to add just a little bit of Halloween to my usual everyday look. And since it’s Halloween tomorrow, I thought I’d better hurry up and share my favourite makeup picks for the day.
Eye’s are usually my focus, with any makeup really, but especially at Halloween and I have one palette that never fails me, the Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel. I love creating a smokey eye with the two purple shades and you can never go wrong with a liner fade using the black. All the shadows are so brilliantly pigmented that they all pop no matter what look you go for. I love to pair the smokey eye look with a thick catflick using the amazing Avon Super Extend Liquid Eyeliner – this liner has been my favourite for about 8 years now, I absolutely adore it and it lasts so well too which makes it the perfect eyeliner for Halloween. I top it of with one of the most volumising mascara’s I’ve ever used, the NYX xxl. May not be you cup of tea if you don’t love a big brush, but I definitely do and if you are looking for volume in a mascara, I couldn’t recommend this more.
For lips, I’ normally go for something subtle if I’ve sporting a smokey eye, but it’s Halloween so a dark lip is completely acceptable. I’ve dug out my favourite from last year, which is the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Notion, a gorgeous dark vampy plum shade that’s is absolutely perfect for Halloween.
For nails I always step way out of my comfort zone, I never wear reds, except for Christmas, I’ve always been quite soft with my nail colour but I definitely go all out for Halloween. One that I am currently wearing, and surprisingly, absolutely loving is the Avon Gel Finish in the colour Roses Are Red. The Gel Finishes can be a bit of a pain, the drying time is a bit longer than a usual nail polish but it’s so worth it once it’s dried. I’ve never known a nail polish last on me as long as the gel finishes do and they keep their gorgeous shine the whole time too. I’ll definitely be treating myself to more of the range.
