An easy step-by-step tutorial, for a fool-proof Halloween night!
Step 1: Base
Start with a clean face and apply moisturiser, or foundation primer, all over your skin. This creates a base for the makeup to stick to.
Step 2: Foundation
Using a very light foundation, cover your face. If using a liquid, don't forget to set with a powder.
Step 3: Eyes
Apply a eyeshadow primer around the eye and then use a dark eyeshadow all around the eye. I used a dark maroon as my dress was a dark red. You may also want to cut the crease with a darker shade.
Line your top and botton lid with black liner.
Step 4: Blush
Apply a bright coloured blush to the apples of your cheek in circles.
Step 5: Lips
Using concealer or a matte nude shade of lipstick, apply this to your lips.
Then using a red lipstick, apply lipstick to the center of your lips.
Step 6: Stitches
Using a black liquid liner, draw lines from the corner of each side of your lips to create a slightly crooked smile. Draw short lines parallel to this to look like stitches. Add another line (or several) to other areas of your face.
Step 7: Lashes
Lastly, finish off the look with a pair of thick false lashes. Add mascara and curl your own lashes into place.
Step 8: Done!
Add some ribbons to your hair, a smock dress, long white socks and you're good to go. You could even add stitches around your neck and wrists to add to this look.
