Trick or tips: The best Halloween makeup ideas

Trick or tips: The best Halloween makeup ideas

Halloween is the one day of the year when you can go all-out with your makeup without raising eyebrows. While the holiday allows you to spice up your makeup palette with dramatic hues and designs, beware of overdoing it - you don't want your face to put the spook in this spooktacular holiday. 

Learn how to rock the perfect Halloween makeup with these beauty tips:

Bewitched
For a more edgy and gothic vibe, update the traditional wart-covered witch makeup by skipping the green face paint and instead opting for a dark yet clean palette that plays up the eyes and lips. First, line your upper and lower lashlines with a charcoal eyeliner, carefully smudging it around the corners of your eyes with a small liner sponge or your fingertips. Then, go for a twist on the conventional smoky eye and switch out the black eyeshadow for a shimmering palette of medium to dark hunter greens.

Complement your eyes with an ultra-dark lipstick, such as a deep eggplant or a rich burgundy. If you're feeling daring, break out that black lipstick you've been holding onto since your high school goth days. Make sure to line your pout before applying to keep the color from bleeding past your lips. 

A la mod
If you want a Halloween costume that can also double as a fashionable night-out ensemble, find your inspiration in the ultimate '60s It Girl, Edie Sedgwick. The infamous socialite made waves at Andy Warhol's Factory with her blonde pixie cut, full eyebrows and sharp liquid eyeliner. Achieve the quintessential mod statement by focusing on the eyes and leaving your skin and lips (mostly) nude. First, cover your entire eyelid - from lashline to browbone - with a pearly white eyeshadow. For a lighter look, apply the eyeshadow with your fingertips. Next, use a white eyeliner on the inner rim of your lower lashline to make your eyes pop. 

Of course, mod eye makeup would not be complete without black liquid eyeliner. By using either a small liquid liner brush dipped in a cream eyeliner or a felt-tipped liquid liner, draw a line starting from the inner corner of your eyes to the outside corners, extending the line so it wings out a few millimeters past your eyelashes. Next, make a line of thick dots with your liner along your lower lash line, drawing them out so they mimic large, false eyelashes. 

Finish the look with a layer of a glossy, barely-there lip color, such as the Bliss Fabulips Glossy Lip Balm in Peppermint. 

The cat's meow
Play up your feline costume with more than just furry ears. Create dramatic cat eyes with black liquid eyeliner. Place a dot of eyeliner outside each eye where you feel your bone - this serves as the ending point for your eyeliner. Starting from the dot, trace along the top lashline with the eyeliner. Once you reach the inner corners of your eyes, extend the line toward the bridge of your nose. If you're worried about precision, try drawing the line with an eyeliner pencil first, and then darken it with the liquid eyeliner.

If you want some extra drama to your cat eyes, take brown or black eyeshadow - depending on your costume - and sweep it from your inside eye corners just above your eyelid's natural crease to the edge of your eyebrows. 

Ghost face
Don't just throw a sheet over your head and call it a day - go the other-worldly route and show off your dewy skin in a way that's anything but ghostly. Before applying any makeup, freshen your skin with a light moisturizer, such as the Elemis FreshSkin Softly Softly Daily Moisturizer. Using a large brush, layer a milky white powder lighter than your natural skin tone all over your cheekbones, sweeping it up to the temples,browbone and down the bridge of your nose. Then, add a touch of pink eyeshadow around the center of the upper and lower lashlines to give you an entirely undead look.

A seasonal affair
If you're not in a costume mood, you can still join the festivities with season-inspired makeup. Take a tip from the vibrant autumn leaves and brush a rust-red eyeshadow over your crease, blending it downward until it meets your upper lashline. Then, take a rich burnt orange eyeshadow and brush it from the inside corners of your eyes to along the browbone, extending it slightly past the outer corners of your eyes. For extra drama, line your bottom lashline with a thick layer of the rust-red eyeshadow, blending it around your eyes' outer corners. 

Before you set off for your numerous Halloween parties, lightly spritz your face with a setter to ensure that your makeup will stay fresh and intact for the whole night.

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.                  P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Interesting blog post. A few things i would like to contribute is that laptop memory ought to be purchased if the computer still cannot cope with everything you do along with it. One can set up two good old ram boards of 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should make sure the company's documentation for the PC to make sure what type of memory space is required.

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
