Halloween makeup! Zombie inspired eyes :-)

Hi Ladies!

Halloween is just around the corner, and I thought I'd start experimenting with some makeup looks for potential costumes. I am super allergic to face paint so can't go crazy with my halloween looks (I once painted my face blue when dressing up as a smurf - I barely made it out because my face got so hot, red and itchy!) However I don't mind not being able to crack out the face paint too much, as I quite like my halloween makeup to look ''ugly pretty'' (to quote Tyra banks!)

So tonight I decided to try out a green zombie esque look:

I primed my eyes with too faced herbal eye concealer, then used a mixture of shadows from all three of my sleek palettes (original, storm and jewels!) I also used a little of MAC's carbon eyeshadow to line my eyes, an nyc eyeliner in black and lots and lots of loreal voluminous mascara. I used a stencil and a green shadow from my sleek original palette to make my eyebrows a little green too!

As you can see this look is pretty understated as far as halloween makeup goes (if I hadn't done the green eyebrows you could probably get away with this on a regular night out!) However I finished off this look by contouring my cheeks quite heavily with a mixture of green and black shadows (sorry theres no photo of this, I just couldn't get it to come out well in the picture at all now theres no natural light - its about midnight!) I also did a spooky green lip:

and finally I would backcomb my hair (sorry hair!) lots and lots, and maybe add a bit of green hairspray :-) I hope you enjoyed this post! What are you dressing up as this halloween?

Have a lovely weekend!
