Halloween (and Halloween parties) comes once a year, but Halloween makeup is for all year round! For some people, Halloween is a bigger deal than Christmas. And for those of you seeking Halloween party ideas, make YouKnowIt your first stop for spook-tacular inspiration.
Our lenses look fantastic when worn simply by themselves, but can really make an impact when combined with striking makeup. And, conversely, if you’ve already made up your mind to be a zombie or vampire for Halloween or that upcoming fancy dress, then the best way to enhance your creation is by the addition of a pair of wild and wonderful colored contact lenses! For instance, your vampire outfit and makeup will turn a few heads with the right vampire contact lenses. You are sure to strike fear into everyone who is caught in your mesmeric stare!
The same goes for any zombie or gothic look you wish to achieve. Anyone can apply some simple cream makeup and look as pale and blood-starved as Dracula on a bad night, but the eyes are the windows to the soul – even if your character has no soul!
Halloween is still some months off, but you will want to decide on your perfect persona well in advance, and try out a few makeup and lens combinations to see what is right. After all, your outfit has to be the most shocking of the party!
Quick Makeup Tutorial
• Go for makeup rather than expensive foam prosthetics. It takes far less time to simply paint yourself, and you will have full facial movement.
• For that dead pale look as with the wonderful skeleton girl in the photo all that is needed is inexpensive liquid foundation and white cream makeup, available from most party shops.
• After you have painted your face and achieved that ashen look, use eye shadow to create deep shadowed eye sockets as well as sunken cheeks. Apply the eyeshadow around the eyes with a fluffy brush. You can bring the shading down the sides of your nose to make it appear smaller. Mascara and savage red lipstick complete the makeup application.
• If you want a more professional look, apply ivory foundation first, followed by translucent finisher. Apply to the face with a foundation brush or a slanted kabuki brush. Those skeletal details can be achieved by black cream makeup.
Coloured Lenses Complete your Look
And now the finishing touch…colored contact lenses! You can use any lenses from our range of scary lenses.
