Ahh, Halloween…a modern-day excuse to dress like your favorite alter ego. Compliment your doppelgänger this season with standout make-up looks that are fabulously monstrous, dramatic and scary…in a good way.
Although vampires and zombies are always trending, impersonate some fresh characters inspired from this year’s hottest movies. Sean Conklin, lead make-up artist at Make-up Designory (MUD) provides expert tips that’ll leave you looking like a striking queen not a repulsive maiden.
Queen Ravenna from Snow White and the Huntsman –
The fairest one of all! Recreate her enchanted look here with these easy steps:
Face: For longer-lasting make-up, evenly apply MUD’s Face Primer with a sponge or Brush 940. Next, sweep the HD Air Foundation on the entire face with a sponge or Brush 940 for an ageless appearance. To reduce the reflection on the skin, lightly dust the Loose Powder with the 510 Fan Brush.
Eyes: Queen Ravenna’s eye treatment is soft and subtle. To achieve a rich, long-lasting brow suitable for a queen, transfer the Taupe Eye Pencil onto Brush 210. Follow the natural direction of the hair to fill in the brow. To recreate the soft smoky eye, use the Taupe Eye Color with Brush 810 to completely fill in the top lid and on the outer corner of the lower lash line. Blend the hard edge with Brush 800 and drag the color outward in a wing like upward fashion. Be sure not to droop the outer corner down. Blend the lower lash line with Brush 800 to finish the smoky look. For definition, follow the upper lash line with the Black Cake Liner and Brush 100. Finish with a couple coats of Volumizing Mascara.
Cheeks: Use the Soft Peach Cheek Color to give the illusion of a softer appearance and an overall glow. With Brush 510, apply from the hairline and dust a light application downward to magically soften the shape. Next, lightly dust on the apples of the cheeks.
Lips: To complete the soft, subtle, bewitching recreation of Queen Ravenna, conjure a mixture of Rose Clay and Just Peachy Lipstick. Apply to the lips with Brush 310 and you’ll be appointed fairest one of all.
