Happy Halloween! Are you interested in how to do vampire makeup for Halloween? Read on!
I wanted to look like a very real, undead, vampire and I wanted to achieve that look without using any of my special effects makeup because I was only going to be at this particular party for a couple hours and did not feel like spending 2 or 3 hours on my makeup. I also knew I had the perfect outfit in my closet (at least half of my clothes are black) so all I really needed was a wig (which I got from Amazon), a cape ( I found on the wish app) and an under-bust corset (also from Amazon) and my outfit was complete!
If you’d like to recreate this look, I’ve listed the products and steps below.
To make my pale skin even paler I used a combo of white foundation (all over my face) and white concealer on the high points of my face. I concealed under my eyes, but looking back I shouldn’t have, as I have naturally dark circles and could have used those natural shadows in my favor. If you don’t want to make your face completely white but still want to look paler, try mixing the white foundation and concealer into your normal foundation and concealer. You’ll achieve a paler, more sallow face, without looking like a clown face.
While most contour kits focus on warm shades to bronze, I wanted a very cool shade in order to make my face look undead. I used a combination of the grey shades I had in my professional kit, but you could also use any ashy contour shade you have or even a taupe eye brow powder (yes, you can use any powder product wherever you want). Here’s some great suggestions to use:

Since I wanted a strong brow to frame by blood-shot eyes, I used a brow pomade instead of a pencil or brow powder. The white foundation could mix easily with a powder or pencil and not look as bold or pigmented.
First I primed my eyelid, water line and under eyes with the NYX jumbo eye pencil and blended it out with my finger. I made sure to smudge the black pencil deep into my under-eye to mimic deep set and blood-shot eyes. I then used the Blushing Berries palette to create depth, concentrating the deep berry shades on my under eyes to mimic bruises. To finish up the eyelook, and to make it a bit more glam, I added some of the same liquid lipstick in the center of my eye lid.

Every Vampiress deserves a winged liner, especially when wearing bold lashes and bruised bloodshot eyes. MUD makes a great cake liner which is water activated or you can use your favorite liquid liner. Make sure to use a water proof pencil liner in your water line or use the same jumbo eye pencil in Black Bean like I did.
I went with a purple liquid lipstick that had a red undertone so that when I smeared it around the edges with the same eyeshadow palette I used on my eyes (to make it look like I just had dinner) the undertones would not compete and it would stay put all night. You could also blend your eyeshadow around the perimeter of your lips first and then put on the lipstick if you clean edges.
