With the spooky event not far away, we’ve come up with three quick and easy Halloween ideas so you don’t have to. Also added bonus, each and every item can be purchased on our website for extra convenience.

     


    Look 1: Curious Cat

    An absolute staple on Halloween, and the easiest one to achieve! Here’s what you’ll need:

     

     STEP 1: The W7 Smokin' Shades Eye Colour Palette is the main feature of this Halloween look, apply as follows:

     

     Shade 1: Place all over the lid for an even base.
    Shade 2: Seamlessly blend into the crease of your eye.
    Shade 3: Blend lower into the crease of your eye ensuring that both shades 2 and 3 are seamlessly blended together.
    Shade 4: Place sparingly onto the outer corner of your eye and blend into the crease of your eyelid until you gain the smokin’ effect.
    Shade 5: The final step is to place this shade onto the inner corner of your eye for a pop of sparkle.

     STEP 2: Use The Royal Lashed Out Black Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen to create a fierce cat eye wing effect! 

     

    STEP 3: LASHES, the cherry on the cake! Apply the Amazing Shine False Eyelashes in Style 138 to achieve the dramatic look you desire.

      

     STEP 4: Now it’s time for the face, after applying your base of choice, the next step is to contour your cheekbones to really tie in the look, use the W7 Shape Your Face Contour Kit!

     

     

    STEP 5: Now for the fun part, take the W7 Blackest Black Eyeliner King Kohl and draw a cat nose and whiskers to complete the Curious Cat Halloween look, all you’ll need now is some cat ears of choice and you’re good to go!

     

     

     

     

     

     Look 2: Mystical Mermaid 

    Image Credit: Pinterest 

     

    This dazzling Mystical Mermaid look will be sure to steal the show at any Halloween party! Here’s what you’ll need:
    STEP 1: You can’t be a mermaid without that golden glow, so you’ll first need to apply the ST.MORIZ Gradual Tanning Lotion (275ml) in plenty of time to let the tan develop to your desired shade.

     

    STEP 2: The next step is to create a popping eye shadow look! Use The W7 Goldibox Eyeshadow Palette and apply as follows:


    Shade 1: Place all over the lid for an even base.
    Shade 2: Seamlessly blend into the crease of your eye.
    Shade 3: Place sparingly onto the outer corner of your eye and blend into the crease of your eyelid to add depth.
    Shade 4: The final step of the eye shadow is to place this shade onto the center of your eyelid to add a halo effect! You can follow this step by adding the Iridescent Metal Flash Eyeliner over the top of Shade 4 for that extra shine, followed by a dramatic winged line effect with the same Iridescent Metal Flash Eyeliner!

     

    STEP 3: Eye shadow is not complete without Lashes! Apply the Girls With Attitude Burlesque Beauty False Eyelashes to really tie the eye look together.

     

    STEP 4: Now for the fun part! After applying the base of your choice, don’t be afraid to go all out with this step! Create a number 3 on your face starting from your forehead, to your cheekbones and finish on your jawline with the Technic Makeup Prism 3D Highlighter, Unicorn Rainbow Shimmer Baked Illuminating Powder to create a glowing mermaid contour!

    You can also add this to the corner of your eyes to tie it all together.

     

     

     

     
     Look 3: Creepy Cracked Doll
     Image Credit: Pinterest 

     

     

    This Creepy Cracked Doll look is simple yet effective, and a firm Halloween favourite of ours!

     

    STEP 1: The first step is to create a simple smoky eye to darken the eyelids and add depth using the W7 Let's Go Quad Eye Shadow Shimmery Colour Palette - Lets Go Smoky. 

    Shade 1: Place in the crease of your eye and blend.
    Shade 2: Place in the crease just bellow Shade 1 and blend into the outer corner of your eye until seamless.
    Shade 3: Place across the entire inner corner of the lid to add a pop of shine.
     
    STEP 2: Next you’ll need to widen your eyes to give that real doll effect, place the White Saffron Metallic Eye Pencil into your waterline and bring down just below your lower lash line.
     

    STEP 3: It is essential to apply dramatic lashes when recreating the Creepy Cracked Doll. The Amazing Shine False Eyelashes in the Style 601 will complement the look perfectly

     

    STEP 4: After applying the base of your choice, the next step is to apply the W7 Cheeky Trio Bronzer, Blusher & Highlighter Kit to add definition to your face and doll like rosy red cheeks.


     

    STEP 5: The next step is to achieve the doll like lips, an absolute essential to tie the look together! Apply the shade ‘Sinful’ from the W7 4 Mega Matte Liquid Lipstick Lip Collection onto the centre of your lips only to create a heart shaped illusion.

     

     

    STEP 6: The final step is of course, the cracks! You can go as wild as you like with this step, each crack can be drawn with the Technic Eyeliner Pencil Smudger & Sharpner.

     

    And it’s that simple, three quick and easy looks to ensure that you’re ready to take on the night this Halloween!
