Don’t let the title to this post scare you…I am not talking about white powdered faces and Halloween stuff.
I am talking about everyday make-up inspired by Vampires…pretty faces, not creepy.
Really what this translates into is berry stained lips, sparkly eyes and flushed cheeks.
You don’t need to wear a cape and fangs to pull this look off…actually I would advise against it.
Let’s start with your face. What you will want is a perfectly smooth matte finish to start building on.
I LOVE this foundation from Make Up Forever. It comes in a bunch of shades, so you’re guaranteed to find one that matches, and it leaves your skin with a velvety-matte, smooth finish.
Now once you have your perfect foundation you’ll want to add a bit of a flush on the cheeks. You know, because you don’t really want to look dead.
Try this one by Tarte. They make a really fun True Blood line. Don’t be scared of stains either. Just start with a little bit and add to create the look you want. This one is totally wearable, trust me, I love the Tarte cheek stains.
Another fun cheek stain is this one by DuWop. It was made for their Twilight line, which is super fun.
Here are a few that I love…
Or you can use this liquid glow by Twilight Beauty
Tarte’s True Blood line has this whole palette which has 17 different eye shadows, mascara, black eyeliner (which is a MUST for this look) and some eye primer. PLUS it’s on sale now at Sephora for $36.50!
Or if you want a little more shimmer try this really great high impact loose eyeshadow by Twilight Beauty. It comes seven fun colors and is only $9!
For your lips I think a stain is the way to go…subtle but pretty. Again DuWop’s Lip Venom is perfect, not only does it stain, but it gives a little plump.
If you skipped the shimmer on your face, but want a little on your lips, try these sparkly ones from Twilight Beauty.
And last but not least let’s talk nails. There are really so many options here, but the one I like the best is this deep violet by Laura Mercier.
But there’s also this pretty shade by Essie called Wicked, which I love.
So there you have it!
Some fun makeup options that you can wear day and night, vampire lover or not!
