Scarily Beautiful: Halloween makeup

I love Halloween - an excuse to get in the fancy dress eat sweets and carve pumpkins! Back in my student days we used to dust off the devil horns and head out to town to dance the night away to Thriller. If you decide to go all out or just nod to Halloween here are some ideas to get you ready for tomorrow.

my spooky make up last year!
An easy way to get involved is to paint your talons a spooky colour - such as 17's Navy Glint (£2.99), which is more of a green-ish blue with lots of sparkles (so will see you through until fireworks night!)

Here are some more options for you to ponder over:

Left to right: George Quick Dry Nail Varnish Meteorite £1, Barry M Glitter Nail Paint in Green Glitter £2.99, Max Factor Colour Effects Nail Polish in Laquer Noir £3.99 and Essie in Wicked £8.50.
Or if you can't decide why not treat yourself to OPI's So So Skullicious (£12.95) collection of 4 mini limited edition vanishes for Halloween - I love the Pumpkin shade!

If you're feeling a little more adventurous, using dark make up you can create dark spooky eyes, perfect if your dressing up as a witch, ghoul, mummie or the evil black swan.

I recommend terre d'Oc's powder eye shadow in Noir eclat (£12.95) and 17's Smoulder Gel Eyeliner (£3.99) teamed with Max Factors' Colour Elixir Lipstick (£7.99) in bright red Ruby Tuesday or the darker wine shade of Mulberry.

If you feel your face painting skills are up toy it, why not follow the Blackpool Tower Dungeon's video instructions to create a ghoulish look.

Happy Halloween girls x
