Halloween is just a few days away and if like me, you're still a bit undecided on what to dress up as at a Halloween party, this collection of gothic inspired makeup should hopefully make that choice a little easier.
Makeup Revolution's 'Give them nightmares' palette* contains an amazing selection of blue, purple and green eye shadows which could be used to create any kind of look from a smokey-eyed witch to a half-dead zombie. They're all really pigmented so won't need layers and layers of product to build up a bright look and at just £6 is a great budget buy.
Superdrug own brand B. have also released a limited collection* for Halloween and I love the line drawings that have been added to the packaging of these. The eye shadow palette is less bold than Makeup Revolution's and contains a smaller shadow selection, but it will work perfectly if you're thinking of a less dramatic look or want to have some shadows you can use again. The berry lipstick is definitely a keeper post-Halloween and its creamy formula will make it easy to wear all night. I think these two would look great together as a vampire look - add lots of white face powder and maybe some fangs and you're good to go!
For the nails I'm loving Deborah Lippmann's new collection* which features a metallic lime green (Weird Science) which just screams 'witch' to me. If you fancy a bit of glitter, there's also Magic Carpet Ride (a mix of large and small multi-coloured glitter in a semi-opaque base) which could be layered over a darker polish shade for a spooky but glittery finish or if you've got plenty of time, layered up on its own to an opaque glitter. Illamasqua's Melange shade is also another great nail shade for Halloween - it's less bold than Weird Science but still feels a little eerie and the hint of gold in it makes it really wearable post-party.
