Hallowe’en weekend is just about upon us and you swore you were spending it in sweatpants on the couch with a pizza and Netflix. And then everything changes and you’re heading out and everyone’s dressing up but all that’s left in the fancy dress pop-up shops are men’s XXL Duff beer bottle costume or a slutty lollipop lady. Neither of which would be your best work.
Fear not! Assemble your makeup paraphernalia and if that doesn’t include a white base then invest in one and you’re essentially sorted. The Mexican Candy Skull is a great option to pair up with a floral headband, which most of us still have lying around the house after festival season. A dark floral headband is all the more authentic and generally the likes of H&M and Claire’s Accessories have some in stock around this time of year.
Easier than it looks, even if a steady hand isn’t your forte you’ll manage to pull this one off – add lashes in, get creative with nails and if a steady hand does happen to be your forte then by all means embellish it a little further.
– white facepaint (very pale foundation will work well too)
– colourful eyeshadow of your choice (Sleek do some great vibrant colours)
-optional: cream eyeshadow to prime (in the same colour as you powder eyeshadow)
– red lipliner
– black gel liner (in pen form and a pot)
– translucent powder
– synthetic brush for blending
– optional: Pritt Stick glue and some cold water
– flower crown
