Hey, boo-tiful!

No idea where to start when it comes to Halloween beauty? Have no fear – here’s how to recreate Nicole’s gorgeously ghoulish look

Spooky make-up

1 Use a very light, matte base – such as Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation in Light Porcelain, £5.99/599 points (30ml).

 

2 Contour cheeks with a grey eyeshadow – we like Fashion Fair Eye Shadow Powder in Soul Ice, £11.50/1,150 points.

 

3 Generously line eyes with a dark liner, such as Benefit Badgal Waterproof Liner, £15.50/1,550 points, then smudge it, blending outwards around your socket line.

 

4 Apply false lashes (try EyLure Definition Reusable No120, £5.39/539 points) to your upper lash lines, then use eyeliner to draw ‘cracks’ from the lower lashes and down towards your cheekbones.

 

5 Complete the look with vampire lips (see below), then brush on lipstick to create scars and blood spatter.

Scary hair

Go big and brash with lots of backcombing, then use a volumising hairspray, such as Batiste Stylist Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray, £4.29/429 (200ml), to give the look staying power.

Vampire lips

Outline your lips with a sharpened dark-blue eyeliner, such as Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kôhl Liner in French Navy, see in store for details.

 

With a lip brush, apply Sleek MakeUp True Colour Lipstick in Vamp, £5.49/549 points, blot with a tissue, then apply another coat to intensify the colour.

 

For added drama, outline your lips again with the navy pencil.

Gothic talons

Apply two coats of red polish and leave it to dry for five minutes.

 

Apply a black polish in a half-moon shape to the bottom of each nail.

 

Before this dries, use an eyeshadow applicator to smudge each black area for a textured, ‘ombre’ finish.

 

Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint in Dead Heat, £3.99/399 points (10ml); Seventeen Nail Gel Colour in Black Cat £3.99/399 points (10ml); No7 Cosmetic Applicators £4.95/495 points (10 applicators)
