Todays feature will include a guide to Halloween makeup, my top halloween fashion picks and style tips on how to put together looks for Halloween.

So, for the next half an hour sit back relax and come and join me as we spook up for Halloween!

Read on, if you dare…..

What to Wear?

Now wen it comes to Halloween styling there are lots of different options that you can take, whether its the more fun gimmicky side of Halloween or something a little more darker and romantic. Halloween enables you to take what you like from this long expansive tradition and take what you like from it.

If you are going to something that is more family orientated or just want to present a look that is young and playful I would recommend opting for embellishments, bold colours and patterns.

If you want to convey a look which is more grown up and romantic go for a lot of lace, blacks, dark purples, deep reds, velvets and other such materials. Avoid really bold statement colours and go for something which is striking.

Makeup Tips

When it comes to makeup on Halloween, you can really be adventurous and branch out of your comfort zone without any inhibitions. After all during this occasion you are encouraged to make a statement with your attire and make up.

Top Tips

  1. Go for a very matt foundation, something which is long lasting and gives you a very porcelain appearance to your skin. Avoid dewy foundations as this will spoil the look.
  2. Avoid shine and blush, after all you are trying to convey a look with is haunting and giving yourself a look which is shiny and gives you colour in your cheeks will not convey the look.
  3. Go strong when it comes to eye makeup, go for something like a cat flick or even a smokey look grey pigments.
  4. Rick dark lipsticks like dark maroons and rich reds are the key for Halloween and are sure to make a statement. Be sure to apply them with a lip brush and to blot using a tissue to achieve the perfect finish.
  5. With nails you are spoilt for choice, go for a deep shades like dark purple,  deep blood reds, autumnal oranges or black.
