HALLOWEEN: the Glampire #GlamToGhoul

This time every year, Make Up For Ever releases 6 easy Halloween looks - three GLAM and three GHOUL. No costume required, just your face and a few makeup bits. 

Make Up For Ever has partnered with Sephora to bring you video tutorials and product recommendations (including Pro SFX) - all of which can be found here. The GLAM looks are the Eternal Goddess, Darling Deer and Creature of the Night. The GHOUL looks are a Sugar Skull, Glampire and the Walking Undead. 

This year, I re-created the GLAMPIRE look. It's on the GHOUL side of things but I think the dark lip makes it appear quite GLAM. 

I started with a too-pale base. Optionally, you could mix in a white lipstick or the NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils or use white face paint instead of foundation. 

For the eyes, I did a more colourful eye than I'm used to - a metallic brick red on the lid blended with a purple and dark brown in the crease. I lined the eyes with Make Up For Ever's Aqua Black and we need to take a moment to talk about how amazing it is. Aqua Black is a matte cream shadow and I could honestly use it for every Halloween look EVER. In addition, it doubles as a stellar long-lasting, waterproof eyeliner. 

On the lips, I used OCC's Ready to Wear Lip Tar in Black Dahlia. I really dislike the (ironically) difficult to wear formulation that is forever bleeding outside my lip lines. In this case the bleeding was quite fitting. I lined my lips with Aqua Black, applied Black Dahlia to the centre of the lips and then used an eyeliner brush to drag the product into two fang-like shapes on my chin. 

Later on, I added some false lashes and pop art details - contours of the face, a nice big ol' mole, a few extra bottom lashes. AND VOILA! 

Products Used

A couple weeks ago I also attended a Make Up For Ever Glam to Ghoul Workshop at the Pro Loft in Toronto to create the Darling Deer Look. Thanks Make Up For Ever for all the amazing Halloween ideas!

Halloween is coming up fast! Will you be trying one of Make Up For Ever's Glam to Ghoul looks?
