Not sure what to be for Halloween this year??
Well, you’re in luck, here are some Halloween Inspiration looks I created. Maybe one or all of these inspo looks may be something you’ll try this Halloween.
For the first look, I was inspired by none other than Snapchat. One of my fave filters is the Deer filter. I like the voice changer on this feature is just too cute. So I decided to recreate the filter.
These are the products I used. I always start off by priming my face with Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional, then I do my eyes and then the face.
Halloween Inspo Look #1
NYX Cosmetics: Eyeshadow Base in shade ESB03
Lorac Cosmetics: Entire Lids: Lorac Pro Matte Palette using Bare and Latte, Crease: mix Corduroy and Chocolate and blend together and blend out. Middle of the Lid: Lorac eyeshadow in shade Inspiration.
Inglot Cosmetics : Gel Eyeliner in shade 77
Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in the shade Chocolate. To create brow hairs similar to deers (for a more realistic effect), I used the Anastasia BH Brow Wiz and created fine lines. I also used NYX Cosmetics Eyeliner Pencil in Black and created more fine lines.
Foundation: Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless oil-free O2 Foundation in shade Hazelnut
Face Powder: Neutrogena Skinclearing Mineral powder in shade Honey Beige 70
Translucent Face Powder: Laura Mercier
Highlight: Mac Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in shade: Soft and Gentle
Concealer: NYX Cosmetics Full Coverage Concealer in shade CJ01 Porcelain & Inglot Cream Concealer in the shade Anticeme Creme
Nose: Anastasia Contour Kit Medium to Tan using the darkest shade down the sides of my nose connecting up to my eyes. Down the middle I used a little of Inglot cream concealer in shade Anticrime creme and blended it. I used a white eyeshadow from the Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette to prevent creasing. For the tip of my nose, I used Inglots gel eyeliner in shade 77. To prevent creasing on my nose I patted the black eyeshadow from Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette.
Dots: I used white face paint
Top lip: Tarte Cosmetics Dry matte lip paints in the color Naughty (Black)
Bottom Lip: Esos lip balm and then using Chanel’s Pinceau Levres Biseaute Angled Lip Brush and pat on Lorac Cosmetics eyeshadow color Inspiration to match the eyelids
And that’s the complete look with all the products I used to create this inspired look. I hope you try this look out and have fun with it, I sure did.
HALLOWEEN INSPO LOOK #2
Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer base in the color Sin
NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in the color 601 Black bean, I used this all over my lid and smoked it out. Creating a base for my smokey eye. Blended the base out to begin the smokey effect. Proceed with eyeshadows to place over the base. (To prevent creasing)
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, mixing the colors Blackout and Pistol for my crease. I also mixed the colors Verve and Snakebite to add a little sparkle to the crease. Blending all the colors and smoking them out, giving you the smoky effect. For the lids I used the colors Half-baked and Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette color Gold.
For eyeliner I used Inglot’s gel liner in shade 77, creating my signature winged line. I made my wing a little thicker.
To create the lines and point in the inner cover of the eyes use L’Oreal’s Infallible sculpt eyeliner in the color 904 black. Use the same line to create the whiskers and dots below your nose.
For the waterline I used NYX Cosmetics eyeliner pencil in the color black. I also used Inglot’s gel liner in black below my water line and midway below my water line and smudge it out. Then I used the gold eyeshadow (Lorac Eyeshadow Pro Palette) for below my waterline to the inner corners of my eye. Give the look a little dimension and making my eyes POP!

Top off the look with a flower crown as seen here. I bought mine at the Halloween store, but you could totally make one of your own using real flowers or even silk flowers. The choice is all up to you. This look is easy and fun to create. I also created loose curls to make the look more feminine and sweet as oppose to scary and gorey, but it’s totally up to you. Still a fun look overall.
Halloween Inspo Look #4
Dia De Los Muertos inspired by @SincerelyJules look
Creating a circles or oval shapes around the eyes and over the eyebrows, using Inglot’s gel liner, fill in all black. To prevent creasing and movement use a black eyeshadow to set the black around the eye. I used the black and a mixture of blue shadows from my Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics eyeshadow palette. Smudge and smoke out around the eye area. Once all the eyes are filled in black, create half circle or petals around the eyes as seen above. Once you’ve created your flower eyes, fill in the petals with blue shadows (from my Eyes Lips Faces eyeshadow palette). For each petal I added some rhinestones (these stones are ones you’d use on your nails, I bought these from Sally’s Beauty Supply store). I applied them with Duo glue, the kind of glue you’d use for false eyelashes.
** You can use any colors you’d like to create this look. These are the colors I chose when I decided to create this look. But it’s up to you, have fun with it, have fun with make up and colors 🙂 **
