Today I’m going to talk you through a really simple vampire makeup tutorial. If, like me, you plan to go all out on Halloween and by the 30th October you still don’t have a costume, fear not. This vampire makeup tutorial will stop you frantically running around the costume shops on the eve of Halloween and ending up dressing as the Holiday Armadillo like Ross from Friends!
Vampire Makeup Tutorial
For this look we’re going to be focusing on quite a dark, vampy smoky eye, so for that reason I would suggest doing your eye makeup first before your base. That way, if you get any drop down from your eyeshadow (which is likely) you won’t need to worry about wiping away half of your base to tidy it all up.
To start this vampire makeup tutorial, begin by priming your eyes with Blinc eye shadow primer. When you’re applying a lot of color to your eyes, eye primers are so important. Firstly, for creating a smooth, blank eye canvas, secondly to ensure your eye makeup adheres to your eyelid properly and lasts all day and last but not least, to stop any natural oils coming through and smearing your perfectly placed eye shadow. If you haven’t used it before it’s a makeup game changer. I’m a huge fan!
