The scariest holiday of the year is coming up at the end of October, which we’re sure will have many of you feverishly brainstorming ideas for the perfect look and most note-worthy costume. Unless you’re having a really bad hair day and have zero time to do your makeup for the occasion, give the classic bandaged mummy look a miss and opt to dress up as a powerful resurrected Egyptian Queen instead. The Yummy Mummy, as we like to call it, is the Halloween makeup trend for 2019.
Get the look
Rather than hiding your mesmerising beauty behind bandages, this Yummy Mummy look encourages you to flaunt it to the world, with just a touch of undead ‘scary’ added to the mix. You’ll want to pay homage to Cleopatra with bold cat-eye eyeliner and lots of bronze or gold shimmer. Kohl eyeliner, like the Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Liner, is a must! If you’re feeling experimental, why not throw in a bit of new-age ‘edge’ by embracing the hot underliner trend and trying your hand at an Egyptian-inspired black and blue-winged eyeliner look?
The best makeup for this stylised Halloween makeup look is the bright, in-your-face NYX Professional Makeup Slim Eye Pencil Electric Blue. Its slim design makes it easy to apply your eye makeup, and its rich pigment makes sure that your take on the Yummy Mummy look is truly to die for.
Get the trademark Egyptian queen metallic shimmer with the help of the smooth NYX Professional Makeup Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Celestial and the ultra-creamy Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Cream Eyeshadow in Zap.
Give your resurrected Egyptian queen makeup a couple of practice runs with a few online makeup tutorials before the big day, and you’ll definitely be bringing undead sexy back this Halloween!
