Welcome to my first Halloween makeup tutorial! I will be doing one each Wednesday throughout October to make sure that you guys are well and truly prepped for All Hallows Eve. This look is a red eye look with batliner, and a dark red lip. This is for those of you who don’t want to do any elaborate face paint, or for those who want to bring a spooky look into the everyday. Enjoy!
I did my usual base: primer, foundation, concealer, powder, contour and blush (for more information see this post). However, the main parts of this look are the eyes and lips. For the eyes, I used the new Naked Heat palette by Urban Decay. The first thing I did was prime my eyes with the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin, this added some shimmer. I then used a fluffy blending brush to apply Sauced into the crease as a transition shade. To darken the look, I then built over it with Cayenne. Using a small shadow brush, I applied Dirty Talk all over my lid, before applying Scorched and Ounce into the centre to lighten. To add more definition to the crease, I applied He Devil.
When all the eyeshadow was blended thoroughly, I created winged liner with the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. This isn’t just normal winged eyeliner though, it’s batliner! Instead of having straight wings, the underside looks like bat wings. To achieve this, you need a thin applicator and a steady hand.
I decided to make a statement with the lips, so I used the Kylie Cosmetics lip kit in Leo. This dark colour really tips this look into spooky territory. Usually I wouldn’t advise bold eyes and lips together, but I think it works here as both elements are warm toned. If you’re apprehensive about wearing a dark look, there’s really no need to be! If you can’t rock almost-black lipstick at this time of year, when can you?
I hope you enjoyed this Halloween makeup look! If you have any questions or suggestions, then please comment them below. Stay tuned for my next look coming this time next week, if you would like to request a look then please do. Thanks for reading.
