Get The Look: Halloween Inspiration

Halloween is creeping up on us, are you ready for the fright?

Fear not if you are in need of some inspiration, we have you covered with our 4 spook-tacular beauty looks to create the best costumes this Halloween in collaboration with our Selfridges stores.

Silent Movie Star

You’re in for a treat this Halloween with this perfect striking look. Apply Gel Liner around the eyes and blend out into shape – upwards into the brows on the inner of the eye and downwards at the outer edge. Apply Elphaba from the Elemental Palette using a blending motion to soften the look. Fill brows with Sophie pencil ensuring the shape follows the eye look. Apply Concealer to erase the natural lip line, use your finger to apply Orion or Elara for a rose bud pout. Finish the look with a soft blush in Katie.


Spider Mistress

Get caught up in this spider web of mystery.

Apply Precision Gel Liner in Infinity to create a winged double liner. Using Lear Eye Shadow from the Elemental Palette, blend and create shading around eyes and cheeks. Use Sophie Eye Pencil and draw a few Spider Webs on your cheeks and forehead. Apply Orion Lipstick with a Loaded Lip Polish in Glaze for a glossy dramatic finish to your lips.


Lady Vampiress

A monochrome glam vampire for the fearless.

Apply Feisty Colouring Lip Pencil around the eyes and into the crease, blending for a soft edge. Underneath the eyes, bring down the colour into a V shape with a soft blending brush. Apply Demon Eye Shadow around the crease and underneath the eyes. Apply Mascara. Use Feisty Pencil again to line the lips, paying attention to the pointed cupids bow and bloody droplets. Apply Box Lipstick all over the lips for extra intensity. Finish the look with Excite blusher along the cheek bones.


Colourful Clown.

Have the last laugh with this shocking creepy clown look.

Apply Skin Base in White SB01 into the skin. Eye Shadows Opera and Spectacle from Experimental Palette mixed with Sealing Gel to create diamond shapes underneath the eyes. Use our Colouring Lip Pencil, in Spell and Feisty on the brows. Apply Lipstick in shade Flash. Set with translucent Loose Powder and then outline everything with our Infinity Precision Gel Liner.
