Halloween | Glam Witch Make Up | prettylittlewriter

As Halloween is fast approaching, I became incredibly excited to start experimenting with different make up looks for different costumes. 
The first I decided to try out was a Witch.

The products I used; Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Glastonberry, HD Brows palette in Vamp, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in two shades, Collection Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Liner, Mac So Sweet So Easy Cremeblend Blush, Front Cover Eye Palette, Mac Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC15, The Body Shop InstaBlur Primer & Guerlain Teracotta Moisturising Bronzing Powder.
I chose to use a pale foundation that perfectly matches my skin tone as I thought the dramatic effect of the lipstick and eye shadow would look best against a pale canvas.
I used this Collection Extreme Liner to draw symmetrical sections onto my eyelids for the eye shadow to be applied to.
Charlotte Tilbury's Glastonberry lipstick seemed an appropriate choice as the pigmentation is great, it has long lasting coverage and is a gorgeous dark purple, and Witches are often seen wearing purple.
I used this as a base for my foundation as I want something that will keep the make up on my face and prevent it from fading throughout the night. 
These are the four shades I used for eye shadow, unfortunately, the Front Cover palette I got these from was discontinued so it is quite difficult to find. They are however, available on Ebay. The shades from left to right are; Bright Aqua, Tarn Green, Twinkling Grape & See The Stars.

For the eyes, I began with the Collection Felt Tip Liner to create an outer wing in which the eye shadow would sit. Then I applied the Tarn Green shade all over my eyelid and into the shaped wing. Once both lids were done, I blended the See The Stars shade into the outer creases and the wing to create a dark, smoky effect. I then added Twinkling Grape to the outer creases just to add a little extra glitter and colour to the smoky eye. After that, I applied a small amount of the Bright Aqua to the inner creases and blended it in. I also applied Tarn Green & See The Stars to my lower lash line.

I will be pairing this make up look with a glamorous sparkly dress and this witches hat!

So there is my first Halloween make up look, a Glamorous Green Glittery Witch! I hope you like this look, and keep an eye out for some other Halloween make up ideas in the near future!
