My FAVOURITE month of the year has begun blogging babies! I can’t get enough of October- Halloween, autumn and my birthday (obvs). There’s just too much excitement. While I wish I could walk around in costume all month, it’s kinda not viable, so I’ve created some easy Halloween eyes to get your subtle Halloween on!
LOOK ONE: SLIMELINER
I’ve seen this knocking around Pinterest for an age, and I’ve been wanting to try it out forever! It’s a lot easier than I thought it would be to!
What You’ll Need:
– Liquid eyeliner (either a pen or a brush, whatever you are comfortable with)
– Orange eyeshadow
– Green liquid lipstick, or eyeshadow (or eyeliner if you have it!)
– White foundation or a white pencil.
First things first, you’ll want to draw a faint outline of the liner- I did this with black liquid liner. Make it a decent size, about 2-3 x in width in comparison to your normal liner, and add slim detailing at the bottom of your wig, as if it’s dripping off.
Next, it’s time to colour your lids! I used MUA’s silent disco eyeshadow palette in the shade Just Dance- it’s a fabulous tangerine colour, and I blended it almost to the brows, and underneath my eyes too.
Next up, it’s time to fill in your slime! Lime Crime is my absolute favourite brand, their liquid lipsticks offer up such versatile uses and I’m constantly using them on my eyes. I used a small nail brush to fill in my slimeliner with Alien lipstick. Add depth and a 3D effect by texturising the slime with wiggly lines using the eyeliner, and create parts where the light catches the slim using white eyeliner.
Tidy up the look by going over the whole thing in liquid liner again, and add drama with a pair of falsies. I also made sure all eyes were on that liner by keeping the lips nude- I LOVE 3ina’s liquid lipstick in 503, it’s the perfect everyday shade.
LOOK TWO: CANDY CORN CUTIES
Is it really Halloween without candy corns?! You might not be able to get them in the UK, but I LOVE CANDY CORNS MAN. Not just the taste, but their aesthetic. They pretty much embody the autumnal palette and that’s why they’re perfect as a little Halloween beauty look.
What You’ll Need:
– Black eyeliner (liquid preferred)
– White eyeliner (or foundation)
– Yellow/gold liquid lipstick/ eyeshadow
– Orange liquid lipstick/eyeshadow
I prepped this look with a ridiculously large wing as my eyeliner, but you can leave things a little more natural if you prefer. I then drew out rough outlines of my candy corn shapes- the best way to do this, is dot work. Make three faint dots and join them together, making sure the points of the triangle are rounded, just like the candy.
Once you have your rough triangles, it’s time to fill the candy corn in! Add white at the top, then orange in the middle and orange/gold at the top. Just like the slimeliner, I used my trusty Lime Crime products, with Squash velvetine for the orange, and Xenon for the gold.
Outline the shape again to tidy the whole thing up, and I added a little bit of detail with coloured dots around the candy corn. TOO CUTE!
LOOK THREE: WEBBED WINGS!
This is the perfect look to adapt your winged eyeliner!
What You’ll Need:
– Black Eyeliner
– Bronze/ orange eyeshadow
I used 3ina’s creme eyeshadow in 313, it’s the ultimate bronzed pumpkin shade, and applied it to my lids and underneath the eyes. I then etched out my normal winged liner, but this time I added a little friend! Draw a diagonal line downwards at the base of your wing, and then two other diagonal lines in between the bottom and the top of your wing.
Fill in the web by drawing ‘c’ shapes in between the lines, and then draw a little spider scaling down your cheek.
I added interest on the other lid with bat silhouettes!
