Four Halloween make-up looks that are actually pretty

Saturday, 31 October 2015

The end of October has approached, which means one thing –it’s time to dust off your witches’ hats, plastic vampire teeth and wigs… Halloween is here! But let’s face it – the majority of us would rather be the belle of the ball than the ugly stepsister, so how do you get around a costume / dress up party without wearing a cringe-worthy costume? By trying one of these pretty make-up looks!


Dark, vampy and mysterious, each of these looks are Halloween-worthy without being ugly. Here, a couple of products we recommend you invest in to perfect your make-up on the 31st of October.

Deep red lip: Try Justine Luxe Crème Lipstick SPF15 in Glam Poppy, R169.

Kohl-rimmed eyes: Try Maybelline Master Kajal Khôl Liner in Pitch Black, R109.95.

Blood red nails: Try O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Big Apple Red, R160.

Flawless complexion: Try The Body Shop All-In-One Face Base, R185, for complete cover.

Highly pigmented eyelids: Try MAC Eye Shadow, R195 – strong colours in every shade imaginable, these are perfect for Halloween.

One for fun: Visit your local party shop for some fake blood – it doubles up as a lip stain!
