Stake the classy, not scary, vamp look this Halloween

What would you call a glamorous vampire? A Glampire?

 

Anyhow, Halloween is every girl’s favourite excuse to dress up and experiment with new makeup trends. And there’s one look that’s stood the test of time - vamp! Vampires can be scary, or they can be sultry and sexy.

 

Here’s how to apply makeup with classic vamp appeal, while keeping it classy a la Bella Cullen.

 

Face

Choose a matte foundation and contour to really bring out your cheekbones. Usually, using bronzer for contouring would be fine. However, if you’re going vamp, then a bluer or greyer-toned contour is more appropriate. Skip the blush to keep your skin pale, and use a slightly shimmery highlighter on your cheekbones. Set everything with matte powder or setting spray.

 

Eyes

This is where the vamp look really comes alive! Smoky eye makeup with heavy black liner is what you need for a glamorous come-hither vampire stare. We love NYX Professional Makeup Dream Catcher Palette in Dusk till dawn - a versatile ten shade palette of sparkly and matte nudes. Or, create pink-rimmed sleepless eyes with L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Les Ombres Palette in Rose Memories.

 

 Complete your eye makeup with heavy black eyeliner and mascara. Try Maybelline Colossal Kajal Eye Liner with Argan Oil in Black and a double coat of Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Washable Mascara in Very Black to create a lifted winged look.

Lips

Lips that say “Bite me” begin with luscious red lipstick. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Paint in Apocalypse Red is a matte lipstick that provides high impact, long-lasting colour with a velvety finish.

 

The great thing about going vamp for Halloween is that you can make it as understated or over the top as you like. So, whether you’ve had your outfit planned for months, or you’re pulling together a vampire outfit at the last minute, there’s no way you can go wrong. And we’re willing to stake our life on that!
