If you, like us, are panicking about what to wear to a forthcoming Halloween party this weekend, don’t stress.
We’ve teamed up with Global Makeup Artist for Napoleon Perdis, Shev Kelly, to show you a quick and easy dress-up idea, à la Little Red Riding Hood.
Step four: Cheeks
Add a flirty pinch of pink to the apples of the cheeks using a matte, baby pink blush. Achieve a strong, dramatic highlight on the top of the cheekbones and Cupid’s bow using a matte white eyeshadow.
Step five: Eyes
Smoke out the eyes with a mysterious pop of purple eyeshadow. For a strong opaque result, use a patting and pressing motion when applying to the eyelid and blend just past the crease of the eye. Continue the same shadow along the lower lash line. Brighten up the inner corner of the eye with a white eyeshadow, applied with a small fluffy brush.
Step seven: Extras
Add a scary scratch detail using a wax-based foundation, red lipstick and clear lip lacquer. Apply the wax-based foundation to one of your cheeks in three uneven, jagged stripes. Leave a small space between each stripe – remember messy is good for this technique! Build up the foundation so it appears that the scratch is higher than your skin. Next, create a fake blood by mixing the red lipstick with a generous amount of clear lip lacquer. Place the mixture between each faux scratch to create a flesh-like finish.
