Have you already planned your Halloween makeup? I have a great and very easy idea for you!
A modern day witch, or vampire if you wish… Modern day witches don’t wear pointy hats and 17th century suits. In 2016 it’s enough to wear a dark shade of lipstick and a matching manicure; much easier! Pair these with some attitude and a daring outfit for a completely bewitching result.
I’m wearing a Kat Von D Poe lip & nail polish combo which I specifically purchased for this occasion. I can certainly see myself wearing this stunning polish well beyond the 30th of October. For an extra dramatic look, I added loose gold glitter on lips and nails. I wouldn’t say it’s the most practical everyday lip look (eating is simply impossible) but for Halloween it’s perfect.
To get the look: using a fluffy eye shadow/makeup or nail art brush, apply loose gold glitter over lipstick and over nail polish. Adjust the gold particles with a pen or brush to create the desired gradient effect. For the rest of your makeup, keep it simple – a good foundation and 1-2 coats of mascara is enough to complete the look. Let the lipstick play the main role! For the nails, secure the gold glitter with a top coat. Done! Easy right?
Used: Kat Von D Poe lip & nail set (now half price! Only $7.50 here), gold loose glitter, Essie Good To Go and fluffy nail art brush to apply the glitter. Also, to re-create the look you can use full size Kat Von D Studded Lipstick Poe and any suitable dark purple nail polish.
