OOTD – Day Of The Dead ? 

Hi My Beauty’s, Hope you’re all having a good week and haven’t been working too hard. With Halloween less than a week away, here’s a Simple Halloween look inspired by the Day of the Dead ?. I  love Halloween. Here’s a list of the reasons why ;

  •   Sweets and Chocolate ? Halloween’s just literally an excuse to eat sweets and chocolate, not that I need an excuse.
  • Experiment with different and bold makeup looks.
  • Play fancy dress. I like to reinvent the clothes I already own in my wardrobe and turn them into a costume.
  • Halloween films such as Hocus Pocus and The nightmare before Christmas.
  • The supernatural. I love anything to do with the supernatural and have been obsessed with The paranormal since I was young.
  • Trick or treating. I loved this as a kid and have great memories of going dressed as a witch with my Nan, and cousins and coming back home with loads of sweets and money.
  • Pumpkin Carving. It’s a tradition that I will carry on doing even though I’m not very good at it.

For Halloween makeup I was inspired by the picture above. I don’t own any fancy Halloween or special effects makeup. I’m no expert at applying makeup and this looked pretty easy to interpret into something that I could do.  I just applied my normal face makeup etc foundation concealer and powder. I then did my normal eye makeup routine on one eye. For the rest of the makeup I just used a black eyeliner to draw the black lines. I used a red lipstick for the lips and red patterns and applied with a thin makeup brush. I then used a cream-white eyeshadow primer  and a fine pencil brush to draw the white pattern. I’m not a makeup artist and I’m ok at makeup so it’s not brilliant and not exactly like the picture inspiration.

Do you like Halloween ?? What’s your favourite thing about the Holiday??
