Halloween Makeup Tutorial

I started with the eyes, I just extended my eyes by drawing under them with a black eyeliner. Then I filled them in white using snazaroo facepaint, I also painted my lower lashes and used a white eyeliner pencil to colour my waterline.

Using a concealer brush I painted carefully around the eyes with a light blue and then the rest of my face in the same shade with a sponge. I took a darker blue to contour around my cheekbones, jawline and forehead (how I would usually contour with foundation) and blended it all with a sponge. Then I took a metallic white and went down the bridge of my nose, cheekbones, cupids bow and above my eyebrows to give more dimension.

I took a black eyeliner and filled my lips in and extended them outwards and finished with a tapered line and drew 3 lines downwards to look like stitches.

I covered my eyebrows with vaseline and pressed glitter on using a small flat eyeshadow brush. Then I sprayed my lips with Mac Fix + and using a stencil and silver eye-shadow patted stars on. I added lashes to the eyeliner I had drawn on and added another set of lashes to the top and finished with a liquid liner. I finished with a spritz of Mac Fix + all over to keep everything in place.

A Glam 20 minute make-over

amby

I loved this makeover because Amber is such a girl next door character that it was fun to see her glammed up. Her daily make-up regime is a liquid liner and a little mascara and actually that is more then enough to make her look great. I wanted a look that would surprise her so I decided to open her eyes up by putting a dark shadow in the crease of her eye lid. I used a beige Givenchy liner inside her water line and a dark brown eye pencil under her lower lash line. This creates the illusion of bigger eyes and Amber had never tried it before but she loved it.

It is often difficult to find the best red lipstick to suit your skin tone and its just a case of experimenting, In winter I like deeper reds as I am less tanned which creates a nice contrast but in summer I can get away with more corals and orangey reds. Amber could pull of a bright red lipstick perfectly and as I had used light golden tones on her eyes, a bright lip didn’t overwhelm her face. I finished with some bronzer on her cheeks and a subtle contour down the centre of her nose.
