Halloween is almost here, are you ready? Halloween is the perfect time of year to experiment with all sorts of makeup that you wouldn’t normally wear. The more bold, colorful or sparkly, the better. If you haven’t sorted out your Halloween beauty look yet, our guide is sure to help you perfect a classic Halloween costume, Wednesday Addams.
Perfecting Wednesday Addams has a few key elements—pull together your favorite all black outfit, including a collared blouse, style your hair into two braids and practice your most solemn facial expressions. However, if you want to take Wednesday to the next level, check out our tutorial for this look:
You will need:
- Illamasqua Contour Gel Sculpt - Silhouette
- Illamasqua Artistry Palette - Elemental
- Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel - Strike
- Eyeko Brow Game Strong
- Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
- Eyeko Rock Out & Lash Out Mascara
- Illamasqua Limited Edition Antimatter Lipstick - Orion
Prepare your face with your favorite skincare routine and primer. After priming, we’d recommend using a matte foundation and setting powder to make sure your look stays picture perfect all night long. Once you’re prepped, make sure your cheekbones pop with a sharp contour with the Illamasqua Contour Gel Sculpt in ‘Silhouette’.
After your contour is complete, use the shade “Elphaba” in the Illamasqua Artistry Palette - Elemental and create the signature Wednesday Addams widow’s peak along your hairline with an angled eyeshadow brush to create a structured shape. Then, using your favorite brow gel (we love Illamasqua’s Precision Brow Gel in ‘Strike’), gently dot some freckles across your nose and cheeks.
This look wouldn’t be complete without a strong eye look. Starting with the eyebrows, fill yours in using the Eyeko Brow Game Strong pomade to create a long-lasting, strong brow. Coming back to the Elemental eyeshadow palette, create a classic smokey eye look using the shades ‘Eponine’, ‘Portia’, ‘Desdemona’ and ‘Elphaba’. Line your eyes with our favorite precise eyeliner, the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner and finish up your eyes with 2-3 coats of Eyeko Black Magic Mascara.
Prep your lips with your favorite lip liner and apply Illamasqua’s Limited Edition Antimatter Lipstick in shade ‘Orion’. Make sure the look is precise all around the lips by using an angled eyeshadow brush and concealer to give you a perfect pout. You’re ready to hit the town!
