The deadliest kind of love.

Eyes:

I covered up my eyebrows using a glue stick like in my previous Halloween look and drew on some evil brows with gel eyeliner.

The eyeshadow was super easy! 
  1. Apply a black eyeshadow to the eyelid and lower lashine. Then, sweep it into the crease as well.
  2. Blend a purple eyeshadow all around the eye and fade it down towards your cheekbones.
  3. Place a matte white eyeshadow under the brow.
  4. Apply mascara/false lashes and line your waterline with black eyeliner.
 

Face and Body:

  1. Apply a white face paint or a much lighter foundation to your skin and set with a powder.
  2. Contour your face mixing the same colors you used on the eyes.
  3. Draw an exaggerated widow's peak with black eyeliner.
  4. Draw a spider web from chest to neck. Then, lightly shade under each curved line with a black eyeshadow.
  5. Create or accentuate your cleavage by drawing a V shape with the two eyeshadows and blending it out.

Lips:

Covered the edges of your lips with the same foundation or paint you used. Then draw out your desired lip shape with a dark lip liner and fill them in. Apply a dark lipstick over that and then blend black eyeliner in the center for a creepier look.

Halloween Look: 1920's Flapper.


Thin eyebrows and pouty cupid's bow lips are what graced the faces of flappers in the roaring 20's.

I used a glue stick to help cover my own eyebrows for a smooth surface. Then, I drew on very thin and curved brows using gel eyeliner. I learned how to do this from watching YouTube videos. Just type in "how to cover brows with glue stick" and start watching. The process takes a while and I suggest practicing beforehand to make sure you've got it down.
To remove the glue, use baby oil and carefully wipe it off. Once the glue is off, wash your face as you normally would.

  1. First, apply an eyeshadow primer. Then, pack on a matte black eyeshadow to the inner and outer halves of the eyelid and the lower lash line. Leave the center free of any color.
  2. Place a light shimmery shadow in the center of  the lid and lower lash line.
  3. Sweep the same black eyeshadow into the crease.
  4. Blend a light purple right above the black crease and underneath the black on the lower lash line.
  5. Add a light neutral shade below the brow.

 Face and Lips:

- I went with a foundation that's a shade lighter and applied my blush higher(under the eyes) than I usually would. Use a pink or red shade.
 - For the lips, I covered them in foundation and then drew out the shape that I wanted with a black eyeliner. Exaggerate the cupids bow, keeping the center of the lips pouty and thinning out towards the corners. I filled in my lips with MAC Diva and blended the black liner into it.

  1. Apply an eyeshadow primer.  Then, with a damp brush, pack on a dark blue shimmer eyeshadow to the inner half and outer half of the lid. Leave a blank space in the center.
  2. Using a damp brush again, place a bright shimmery blue in the center and lightly blend.
  3. Sweep a dark matte purple in the crease and bring it out towards the hairline.
  4. Apply a light matte eyeshadow under the brow.
  5. Lightly blend a bright pink shadow where the purple and light matte shadow meet.
  6. Add the blue eyeshadows to your lower lash line in the same order and add purple right underneath that. Then, line your waterline with black eyeliner and apply mascara.
I drew the beginning of my eyebrows into a point for more of a dark/mysterious look.


Face and Lips:

- I applied my everyday face as I normally would.
- For my lips, I used MAC Rebel lipstick and lightly darkened the corners of my lips with a black eyeliner for an ombre look.
