I love Halloween.
Any excuse to attack my face with glitter, eyelashes and an excess of shadows is like heaven to me. (If I'm honest, I wish we could dress like this everyday because it is too fun to be constrained to just one day..*sigh*) This year, despite my abhorent fear of spiders, I made my face into a cobweb - or just struggled with a really fancy eyeliner flick that never ended - you can make the judgement.
To start, I used the Collection Fast Stroke Liquid Liner in Brown (similar here) to create the basic shape and line, and then I dabbed on No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow in Midnight Blue (this is a discontinued shade, but similar options are here) using a slightly damp Real Techniques 202 Angled Liner Brush to smoke out the lines, and make them a little messier. I used the same shadow all over my lids and to line my lower lash line, and then I lightly dragged the eyeliner down my cheek to look like tears to finish the motif off.
On my lips, I lined with the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Obsession, and then slicked on a layer of Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in #01 (which is fabulous and tastes like toffee) to add some shine and deepen the colour up.
Finally, I threw (or painstakingly struggled for a few minutes) on the Eyelure Exaggerate 141 Lashes and finished with the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara to bind the falsies and spike out my lower lashes.
Did you celebrate Halloween this year? (My night ended with many makeup wipes, a blanket, tea and Netflix in bed - in a word, bliss).
