Halloween Inspiration- A Make Up For Ever Superhero Look

Given my obsession with beauty, and my love of all things creative, it is surprising to some that I do not participate in Halloween festivities. Fact of the matter is, I grew up terrified of clowns, and of people wearing exaggerated monster makeup. I'm not kidding either, as a little girl when I refused to eat my dinner (which was quite often), my mom would threaten to call the clown car. Another fun fact, I told a clown at my 6 year birthday party not to touch me or come near me. Yeah, clowns creep me out.

Anywho, suffice it to say that I don't like the holiday. Not wanting to leave you all out in the cold though, I wanted to at least provide one piece of inspiration. Recall my Illamasqua superhero contest entry.

This look is surprisingly easy to do, with a trick.


Foundation and blush of your choice
Make Up For Ever Eyeshadows in 75 and 92
Nars Lipstick in Schiap
A pair of funky neon-ified lashes

Apply foundation and blush as usual, and achieve the eye look by applying hot pink to the lid and neon purple to cut the crease. Line under the eye with neon purple, and top off the eye look with the exaggerated lashes.

The stars look difficult, but are super easy to do as well. The secret is stickers. Yep, stickers.

Pick up a pack of standard issue star stickers, and separate the border, not the stars from the sheet. You are then left with rectangular, sticky templates to lay across your face in whatever shape you choose. Pack an eyeshadow brush with the eyeshadow of your choice, and dab it into the star shaped spaces. Once  you peel off the template,  you are left with a face full of stars.

.A fun hot pink lipstick like Nars Schiap gives the look a little something extra.

What will you be this Halloween?
