Last Minute 'Undead' Halloween Makeup Look | Halloween Season

I've always been obsessed with contouring, it's a necessity in my daily makeup routine. So when it came to deciding what makeup look to do for Halloween this was the first that came to mind. I don't own much in the way of 'play makeup' as I like to call it, products that are super useful when it comes to a Halloween makeup look. So for people in the same makeup situation as me and don't want to buy it just for one night, this is a look that can be done last minute with products that most makeup enthusiast would already own.

 I made it kind of messy because what undead human has flawless under eye circles? But I didn't want to try too hard and take forever making it look realistic either. Because it was messy it was actually really quick and easy to do.
I just used a dark pinky-red colour all over the lid and in the crease, then blended a dark purple into the outer corner, inner corner and all around the eye and a matte black just in the outer corner to make the socket look more hollow.

For the contour I used a contour powder for paler skin and took it all the way to the sides of my mouth and down towards my jawline to make my face look more sallow. I put a darker cream contour over the top to add more depth. I did the same down my nose but it looked a little 'muddy' so I took the brush that I used with the matte black with the left over product on it and used that to contour instead.

For the lips I just covered them in concealer to pale them up then took a dark red lipstick on an angled lip brush and drew lines on my lips to make them look dry and cracked.


And that's pretty much it. I personally like it with the winged liner even though it's not very 'dead'-like, who says you can't be undead with style?

TTFN and Happy Halloween! :) x
