Happy Halloween busy shes!

Whether you’re tricking, treating or staying in to watch Hocus Pocus, there’s no denying that Halloween can be a lot of fun!

However, when you’re a busy she it can become a fairly stressful holiday too. Finding that scary yet sexy oufit and following so called ‘simple’ make-up tutorials are both expensive and time-consuming. Before you know it, the 30th October is here and a sheet with two eye holes tomorrow is looking like your best bet!

Thing is, no one said you have to go all out, especially once you’re out of University. The saying less is more springs to mind. In light of this and the fact that is Halloween-eve, I’ve picked a couple beauty buys/looks that’ll channel your inner Morticia Addams with minimal hassle. You better get started, quick!

#1 The first and probably the easiest way to vamp it up this year is by experimenting with lipstick. Dark hues of red are typically associated with Halloween (as seen on me), but seeing as it’s all about creativity, why not give the looks below a try?

Use a black eyeliner to line your lips and blend outwards to generate the gradual move into red. The pop of colour will look best using MAC in Morange – £15.50.
Halloween-Lips-7
Copying this only involves two products, a metallic silver lipstick such as Rimmel’s Metallic 240 – £4.99 and a liquid eyeliner pen. The trickiest part is getting your artistry right!

#2 Make your fingernails fierce and frightening with some festive nail art. You don’t have to be a technician to try-out the following boo-tiful designs! If does get a little messy, you can always cover up the mistake with black nail varnish.

Stitched-Halloween-nails
A clear varnish acts as your base but you can always change it up according to your costume. For the tips, a bright orange like the one in Rita Ora’s Rimmel London range – £2.99 is painted a quarter of the way. If you struggle with keeping a line, you can always use tape as a guide. Then the stitch like effect can be simply done using a nail art pen.
spider-web-halloween-nails
This is a perfect match for the lipstick look above and similarly takes a little bit of concentration. Begin with a metallic or glittery black, a favourite of mine is Rockstar by Barry M – £3.99. The spooky spider-webs are drawn with a white nail art pen, preferably with a thin tip to ensure precision!
