Halloween is upon us and we’d like to ensure you are prepared for the big night! Follow these steps to become a Sexy Gothic Vampire!
Step 1 – Moisturize and prime the skin, and apply facial primer such as MAC Prep & prime for long-lasting makeup.
Step 2 – Use a foundation shade that is two or three shades lighter than your natural tone, or even better mix some clown white face paint to whiten up the skin.
Step 3 – Using a matte gray toned eye shadow and a contouring brush, shade the hollows of the cheeks and the sides of the forehead and the jaw line for a chiseled effect. The grey will give a more vampire look.
Step 4 – Using a dark paint-pot like Blackground by MAC and a fluffy eye shadow brush, buff the color all over the lid feathering it upwards and outwards keeping it very dark around the eyelashes. Add a matte black eye shadow like MAC carbon all over the previous areas you used the dark Paint-pot to further deepen the sockets.
Step 5 – Line the inner rim of the eye with red eyeliner to give a bloodshot effect. You can also add red eye shadow on the lower lash-line to further give this effect of bloodshot eyes. Apply lots of mascara, and if you like, false lashes.
Step 6 – To further define the eyes, fill in the brows to make them look slightly darker than normal with a dark brown eye shadow and a slanted brow brush.
Step 7 – With a very thin eyeliner brush, and some dark blue grey gel liner or eye shadow, lightly draw veins in and around the eye area and also down the neck area for scarier look.
Step 8 – Line the lips with dark red liner like Currant by Mac and fill in the entire lips with your favorite dark burgundy red lipstick. To contour the lips, use a black eyeliner pencil and fill in only the outer corners of the lips and feather it out and blend it with the red lipstick for a dark gothic look.
Step 9 – Set the skin with a light dusting of loose powder for a long-lasting finish.
Step 10 – Use cosmetic grade special effects blood and apply it with a q-tip strategically around the lips, apply your fangs and your ready to suck some blood!
