An easy, universal Halloween look

Let's be honest, unless someone is really into makeup or special effects, or really artsy stuff, for Halloween  most women will be a "sexy" something or other.  And to quote Mean Girls, "Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Haha I love that movie.

So I decided to do a look that you could wear with any outfit if you're going for the sexy look.  It has a very cat-eye quality to it. For the actual day of Halloween, I would just add some false lashes and maybe a rhinestone on the inner corner.  So here's what I did.  Haha I had to tone it down a little and not go completely crazy because I knew I had to go to Target after this.

I edit my pictures in Picnik and at the moment, they have an edit where you can make yourself have Vampire eyes, so I did that.  I think it looks cool
Also, if you have a look that's something that's supposed to be "bad" like a witch, a pirate, a vampire, something along those lines, I'd add red lips and not go as heavy on the cheek makeup.

For this look I used : Inglot AMC 61,
which is a blackened blue with navy blue sparkles (not a favorite of mine at all) but I wanted to use this color since I never do.  It basically just looks black but if you blend it out enough, you can see the blue.  I also used a dark tan color from my 88 palette, and my highlight is Inglot 395 P.  The liner is Bobbi Brown "Black Ink" gel liner.  And if I had lash glue I definitely would have added false lashes because I think, especially for Halloween, this look needs them.

To make the shape, the first thing I did was take a smudge brush and drag the dark blue from the corner of my eye to make the wing at the angle I wanted it and then I filled my lid with the color.  I blended it up from there making sure not the lose the wing shape I'd made.  Then I made the inner corner of my eye come to a point with my liner to make the shape a little more dramatic.

I hope this helps someone out there!
