I wanted to do a Halloween makeup tutorial this year. I have seen a lot of full face Halloween makeup looks, but not that many “subtle” looks which don’t include the entire face. This is why I wanted to create a Halloween makeup look which is very wearable if you don’t want to go all out. I really love how this turned out and I hope you guys love it as well! If you are interested in learning how to recreate this, then please keep reading!

I started out by priming my lids with the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre and used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (*) to set it. I then layed down some of the “Orange Crush” eyeshadow from Coastal Scents with the Pointed Blender Brush from Coastal Scents. To blend out “Orange Crush”, I used the Crease Blender Brush from Coastal Scents lightly dipped into “Charm” (*) from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny Palette (*). After I was satisfied with the blending, I went in and created a cut crease using the Dermacol Make-Up Cover Foundation and the Real Techniques Detailer Brush (*). I used some of the “Tempera” (*) eyeshadow from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette (*) to set the wet cut crease. You can also use transparent powder if you want, I just wanted the subtle shimmer the “Tempera” (*) eyeshadow has.

After I had set the cut crease, I reintensified the orange eyeshadow by going back in with “Orange Crush” on the Smudge Brush from Real Techniques and blended it out with a clean Pointed Blender Brush. To deepen up the orange eyeshadow a bit, I went in with “Realgar” (*) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette (*) with the same Smudge Brush. I only applied a tiny bit at a time. The next step is to create the ghost! I used the NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner (*) for this part, and I started out by laying down the white eyeliner as it is easier than covering up black eyeliner. When I had the shape of the ghost I wanted, the next step would be to outline it with a black eyeliner. But before I did that, I applied some of the Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner (*) to my upper and lower waterline. The reason I did this before applying the outline with the liquid eyeliner, was because I then would be able to see where to apply the liquid liner at my inner corner. I used the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (*) to make the outline.

To finish up my lower lashline, I applied a bit of the “Incognito” eyeshadow from Coastal Scents to smudge out the liner on my waterline a bit. I used a clean Smudge Brush to apply it. I then blended out the black eyeshadow with the Pointed Blender Brush dipped into “Orange Crush”. To finish up my look, I applied a mixture of the two highlighters “Snow” (*) and “Golden Dawn” (*) from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Ultimate Glow Kit (*) to my browbone and inner corner. I curled my lashes with the Eylure Heated Eyelash Curler (*) and applied the Eylure The Luxe Collection False Eyelashes in Bauble (*, **) and finished it off with some of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara.

I am so in love with how this turned out! If you are not that keen on orange, then you can, of course, go for another colour for the cut crease. A purple cut crease would look great as well and still keep it in the colours of Halloween! Please let me know if you are going to dress up for this Halloween, and if you are, then please tell me what! Halloween is not that big in Denmark so I am not going to get dressed up in anything spooky. Thank you so much for reading, I hope to see you back soon! xx
