Beauty // Halloween Makeup: Black Widow


Transform yourself into a Black Widow this Halloween!

For those who want a simple and easy costume this Halloween, I created a spider inspired look. 

I'll show you how to become a Black Widow; just follow the steps below:

You will need:

FACE

Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Glow
Face Paint Palette

EYES

Tanya Burr False Eyelashes in Girls Night Out
Tweezers

LIPS





Start by doing your usual skin and eyebrow routine. Find out what products I am wearing here in my 'Cheeky Devil' tutorial.


Line your eyes' lower waterline using the black eye liner pencil.


Take black eye shadow on an applicator from the W7 palette and apply it all over your eyelid, up to your eye's natural crease.


Line the underneath of your eye using what you have left of the eye shadow on the applicator. Start from the lower outer corner of your eye and blend inward about two thirds of the way toward the inner corner.


Take silver eye shadow on to your applicator and apply it just above the crease, blending it carefully into the edge of the black eye shadow.


Draw a simple cat eye with your liquid eye liner.


Apply mascara to your lower lashes.


Paint red face paint on to your lower lashes over the mascara, and draw two small dots next to the inner corners of your eyes.


Apply your false lashes with tweezers as close to your lash line as you can..


Apply a small amount of mascara to your upper lashes, only at the base, to blend the real eyelashes in with the fake ones.


To begin the spider webs, draw three curved lines towards the side of your face using the liquid eye liner.


Connect them at the bottom with curved lines, adding an extra curve towards your nose.


Repeat the last two steps to create another row of web.


Connect three more lines from the bottom of the web to finish the lower section of the design.


Copy the lower spider web design on the upper part of your face.


Draw one more line from the outer corner of your eye.


Line your lips. This will create a good shape for the rest of the lipstick and will make it last better throughout the night.


Apply lipstick.


Apply lip lacquer. This will create a sticky base for the glitter we will apply at the end.. 


Add red face paint dots where the web connects and at the tips of the design.


Add small random white dots over the design with white face paint.


With your finger, take red glitter and apply it over your lips for the perfect deadly black widow smile.


To finish the look, dust some bronzer over your cheeks to add dimension to your face.

The finished look!

Beauty // Halloween Makeup: Frankenstein's Bride


Transform yourself into Frankenstein's Bride this Halloween!

This time I thought I'd try something a little scarier as Halloween draws nearer!

Re-create this spooky undead bride look with me using the steps below.

You will need:

FACE

Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Glow
Face Paint Palette
Topshop Lips in Rio Rio

EYES

Tweezers

LIPS





Start off by doing your usual skin and eyebrow routine. Find out what products I am wearing here in my 'Cheeky Devil' tutorial.


Line your eyes' lower waterline using the white eye liner.


Take some green face paint on a sponge and dab it over your skin from the edge of your face toward your eye and eyebrow. Do this on only one side of your face.


This time take a slightly darker green face paint onto a brush and draw a thick line starting from the centre of your forehead, down the side of your nose and to the side of your jaw.  


Use the brush to fill in the areas around your eye and eyebrow as it is much more precise than using the sponge. Then fill in any missing space as well as roughly dabbing what paint is left on the brush over the green you sponged on earlier.


Taking your sponge again without adding any more face paint to it, dab it around the green area, smoothing out the paint and colour.


Take the black eye shadow from your palette and cover the whole of your eyelid, up to your eyes' natural crease.


Next take a silver shade from the palette and apply it just above the crease, also carefully blending it into the edge of the black eye shadow.


Take the eye liner pencil and line the underneath of your eyes. (Below your lower lashes, not on your waterline!)


On the plain side of your face add and blend some red eye shadow under your eyes, do the same with dark green on the painted side.


Take your liquid eye liner and create a small cat eye.


Carefully draw six long lower lashes under your eyes with your liquid eye liner.


Add a little black mascara on your actual lower lashes.


Apply false eyelashes.


Using the blush application method I showed you in the previous Halloween makeup tutorials, apply bronzer to the plain side of your face, then dip your blush brush in black eye shadow from the palette and apply blush to the painted side.


Take some black face paint on to a brush and apply it to your lips.


Taking a dark red lipstick, roughly draw over the line between your skin and the green face paint. Use your finger to dab it in areas, to make it looks slightly worn and bloody.


Take a light red lipstick and repeat the last step.


Take a little black eye shadow and again, do the same.


Add the two lipsticks and eye shadow again in a line from one corner of your mouth to the side of your chin, creating another bloody wound.


Take the liquid eye liner and draw stitches over the lines you created, completing the look.

The finished look!
