Halloween Fun With John Lewis *

Hello Bunnies!

John Lewis recently challenged me to create a Halloween look.  It couldn’t be based on any famous characters, nor could it be too scary.  They gave me a voucher to order some products then let me loose.  Now I had elaborate plans for my look, but we all know that I am not a makeup artist.  Let’s just say I tried.

Then it was onto makeup.  Originally I’d planned on a vampire look centred on red and black eye makeup.  However, that went horribly wrong so I had to improvise.  I decided to stay on the red and black theme as I think that they work so well for Halloween.  There will be full reviews of the products coming up in separate reviews, so I will talk you through what I used and how.

From the minute John Lewis contacted me, I knew that I wanted to incorporate some of the new Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic palettes (£39.00) into my look.  I went for Provocouture and Scandalust as they had the shades I was looking for.

I started off with the shade http://www.topcanon.fr/figase/opie/8143 Scandalous from the Scandalust palette.  It’s a beautiful dark warm red and I applied this all over the lid and slightly into the inner corner.  Next, I took http://www.soundofthesirens.net/?delimeres=bin%C3%A4re-optionen-cortal-consors&7c9=24 As Well from the Provocouture palette and applied this from the crease to the brow bone.  Then I blended it out quite a lot until the blackened brown looked more of a washed out black.  I added http://gsc-research.de/gsc/nachrichten/detailansicht/index.html?tx_mfcgsc_unternehmen[uid]=1040 They Call Her (Scandalust) along the crease and into the inner corner and around under the lower lash line.  I finished this off with a black mascara and a dark brown eyeliner lightly along the waterline.

For the lips, I decided to stick with the original look I’d had for the vampire look.  I took http://creatingsparks.com.gridhosted.co.uk/?5a0=83 MAC’s Lip Liner in Nightmoth (£13.00) and lined the lips and filled in the outer third of both lips.  The blackened plum shade is gorgeous.  I feel Halloween is the time of year I can get away with such a dark liner.  With the actual lip colour, I wanted something that would contrast with the liner.   http://www.mylifept.com/?refriwerator=bin%C3%A4are-optionen-demokonto&08e=02 binäare optionen demokonto Hourglass Confession Ultra-Slim Lipstick in Secretly (£28.00) worked perfectly.  It’s a classic red and created a nice ombre effect.

I decided to add some spiderwebs and used a felt liner for this.  To add some depth, I went over the top with a shimmery loose pigment.  Admittedly I totally messed up the web around the mouth, but as I’ve said … I am far from being a makeup artist!

Halloween makeup doesn’t mean buying cheap face paints and turning yourself into a clown.  John Lewis have an incredible array of makeup products that you can use.   They also have some great homeware pieces too.
