The ultimate Halloween icon: the vampire! So many possible directions you could take this one…but I think my favorite is to go full blown dramatic on the makeup then add the fangs and blood!
So here’s a glance at each step I took to get my undead glam on…
Clean bare face of course! I used Painterly paint pot by MAC as my eye base and worked from the purple and black shadows in the Tarteist Pro palette!
Start with a wash of color over your lid, the brightest purples should go in your crease, smoke out the edges with the black and highlight your brow bone!
The far right row in the palette is all shimmery shades—use your finger to color pack the shimmery purple onto the center of your lid for an extra pop! I always use a makeup wipe to clean up after and create a sharp line to guide my wings! Dior has an awesome liquid liner, the felt tip makes it goof proof! Lashes are a must, try using the lash trios by Ardell! They’re like training wheels for lashes— so much easier to put on!
Now that you’ve cleaned up the fallout from the smokey eye, even your skin tone with your favorite foundation! I used Face Atelier ultra foundation and concealed and highlighted with the NARS creamy concealer. This bronzing and highlight palette was limited edition, but you can snag the shades individually from NARS as well. A nice sharp contour and highlight definitely adds that necessary severity to this look.
Loving this look so far! Smoke out under your lashes and add liner in your inner rim for extra drama.
Blush by Cargo in Ibiza, strong brows with my new favorite brow pencil from NYX…it’s called Precision Brow Pencil and the shade taupe works for just about everyone! NYX lip in Transylvania—how apropos! I set it with black eyeshadow for extra depth and hold.
There it is! Love! Of course I added fangs. I used the petite set from Scarecrow Vampire. The set comes with a kit to make custom molds but I opted to go the lazy route and use poligrip since I only was wearing them for a couple hours.
Bonus step: Add a drip of fx blood in the corner of your mouth!
Any outfit will do but I think all black is the way to go…leather, chockers, boots…the more badass the better!
I’m not gonna lie, I kinda want to wear this look year round…fangs included!
There you have it! You’re ready for your date with Dracula!
