Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year, with the candy, the parties and, of course, the fancy dress. If you’re heading to a Halloween party and stuck for makeup ideas, then our ultimate makeup tutorial is sure to help.

Fortune Teller

If you want to really stand out at your Halloween party and you prefer sexy to scary, then this Fortune Teller makeup is the one for you.

You Will Need:

Step 1

After priming your face, tart by applying your favorite foundation. You really want your base to be full coverage for this Halloween party look, so take a BeautyBlender to touch up the areas that need it. Set your makeup with your favorite loose powder, concentrating on your under eye area and t-zone.

Next, you want to apply your Bahama Mama Bronzerfrom TheBalm to add some warmth to your face. Buff it into the hollows of your cheeks, jawline, temples and down the sides of your nose for a truly sculpted look.

Step 2

Fill in your eyebrows using your Brow Game Strong from Eyeko.  A strong, structured eyebrow will work best for this look, but use feather-like strokes until you’ve reached your desired look.

Step 3

Next, it’s time to move onto the star of the show – the eyeshadow. Take the color ‘Dusky’ from the High Definition Eyeshadow Palette and buff it onto your lid, blending it above your crease and outwards. Next, take the shade ‘Aubergine’, concentrating the color towards your lash line and blending upwards and outwards. Pat some of the shade ‘Berry’ onto the center of your eyelid to add a pop of color.

Take a small eye detailer brush and blend some of the ‘Aubergine’ shade under your lower lash line and blend it downwards using the shade ‘Dusky’ for a truly dramatic look.

Add a smudge of the Illamasqua Jewel Vinyl in the shade 'Blondie' underneath the center of your lower lash line.

Step 4

Next, it’s time to move onto your eyeliner and eyelashes! Take your Illamasqua Presicion Ink Eyeliner and trace a line along your upper lash line. Next, fill in your water line using the Laura Geller Inkredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil.

Add some drama to your lashes with a couple coats of Eyeko's Black Magic Mascara, which will not only give you volume, but will also curl your lashes!

Step 5

Using your NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk', draw a star just above the center of your brows and some dots along your brow and above and below the star. This will add a truly astrological dimension to your Halloween party makeup.

Step 6

Finally, move onto your pout. Line and fill in your lips with the gorgeous NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in ‘Vintage’. Using your index finger, pat a little of the Stila Magnificant Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow onto the center of your lips, before accentuating your cupid’s bow with your NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil.

And there you have it – the ultimate Halloween party makeup that’s sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
