Halloween is upon us, which means spooky front yards, candy cravings and costumes. It is a fun time of year for children and adults alike.
The most popular costumes this year include minions from the hit film Minions, Khalessi from Game of Thrones and of course Elsa from Frozen. I also imagine there will be many dressing up as Donald Trump, as that hairdo is too easy to poke fun at.
I miss the days of Marilyn Monroe dresses, green witches and Dorothy.
If you don’t plan to deck-out this Halloween with a full-blown costume, try joining in the fun by intensifying your makeup. Susan Posnick makes it easy to be your best vampire; think Bella in Twilight, Lily Munster in The Munsters, and Morticia in The Addams Family.
1. Use a dark shade of COLORCORRECT to contour your cheekbones as vampires are usually very gaunt looking.
3. Dramatize and deepen your eyes with COLOREYEDEFINE in Jet or Sapphire – and skip the mascara.
4. Finish the look with bold, dark lips using COLORME Orchid as a base mixed with COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in London.
For a more ghoulish and pasty look, line your lips with COLOREYEDEFINE in Smokey Quartz and use COLORCORRECT C1 in place of lip color.
5. Add some baby powder to your hair to make it look very grey and scraggly and you are ready to meet those trick or treaters face on.
