It's the most Wonderful Time of the Year... HALLOWEEN!


That's right gorgeous guys and gals, it's that magical time of the year again when we embrace our inner vamp and experiment with make up beyond our usual mascara, lipstick and liner. Here are some fabulous Halloween looks and products for you to check out and perhaps try for yourself....?! I mean, who doesn't want to look Devilish at least once a year...








This year, MAC have teamed up with Special Effects for Film Make up Artist, Rick Baker to bring a collection of ghoulish palettes and colours just right for helping you achieve that from beyond the grave Halloween Hunny look! Featured above is the Spider Queen pro palette great for anything Frankenstein's Bride or Zombie Queen and the forever faithful lip colour Cyber, perfect for embracing your inner Vamp. Finally, set your make up with the translucent set powder to keep your make up in place.

Also new for this Halloween is Illamasqua's Bat Lash Duo with uniquely designed Bat Wing false lashes and black glitter Swarm nail polish, just the perfect finishing touches for anyone choosing Vampira, Elvira or Lily Munster as their inspiration! And if you wanted to pale down your skin colour, try their Rich Liquid Foundation in 100 either mixed with your own everyday foundation, just to add a subtle deathly pallor or wear alone for that full on Bride of Dracula look.

If you wanted to try something a bit more out there and paint your face as a Candy Skull or Skeleton, try using Kroylan's Aqua Colour paints with water and a sponge, to cover large areas and really build up dense colour. Kroylan are masters of special effects make up and you can be rest assured that no matter what colours your after, no matter how bright, they will have them.

Alternatively, try French brand Make up Forever, their Aqua Black waterproof cream Eyeshadow would be ideal for creating a heavy black smokey eye that wouldn't look out of place where the Gothic subculture first begun back in the 1980's The Bat Cave! (see below if you don't believe us!)
