As spooky season approaches, so too do the tutorials on how to master the typical Halloween looks. Whether it’s a clown or cat, there are a few basic Halloween looks that resurface year-in, year-out. However, at Illamasqua, we don’t do ‘typical’. We like to think outside of the box. Enter: Our Euphoria-inspired makeup looks. Why not use Halloween to your advantage and try out some looks that might veer on the daring side for every day? If you’ve always wanted to wear glitter tears, Halloween is the perfect opportunity to introduce them to your makeup repertoire!
Stand out from the crowd this year with glitter, neon, and creativity. Here’s our Euphoria-inspired makeup looks.
Cassie Euphoria Makeup
To begin, we have the Cassie Euphoria makeup. The pairing of the red lip with the grungy, glittery eye makeup makes this quite clearly Euphoria-inspired makeup. This look is taken from a Halloween episode when Cassie dresses up as Alabama Worley from True Romance, so it’s particularly on-theme! Start your base how you would normally, but keep it simple. For some tips, take a look at our guide How to Apply Foundation. Hold back on the blush and bronzer, the focus here is primarily on the eyes and lips.
Once you have your base ready, how to proceed with this Cassie Euphoria makeup is easier than it looks!
Step One: To start, if you need help with an unsteady hand, apply a small piece of tape from the outer corner of the eye to the other corner of the brow as shown below in white. This will help to create that clean, straight line of colour.
Step Two: With Illamasqua Precision Ink in the shade Zircon, outline the shape of the eye look, starting at the inner corner and follow the curve of your eye’s crease.
Step Three: Fill in the inside of the outline so the entire front of the lid is covered in the shimmery blue pigment.
Step Four: Trace the bottom lash line with the same color, reaching right into the inner corner and staying close to the lashes.
Step Five: Remove the tape to reveal the pristine, glistening shape of blue on your eyelid.
Step Six: Trace the top and bottom outline of the eye with the Colouring Eye Pencil in black, staying as close to the lash line as possible.
Step Seven: Dip a thin Liner Brush into Illamasqua Pure Pigment in the shade Static. Dampen the brush with some setting spray to intensify the color and lightly dot the pigment over the blue base. Emphasize the specks of silver at the inner corner for an eye-catching finish.
Step Eight: Coat the lashes with two or three coats of mascara.
Step Nine: Carefully line the lips with a sharpened Colouring Lip Pencil in the shade Spell, and finish off with a coat of Illamasqua Sheer Veil Lipstick in the shade Starshine for the hydrated, red lip finish.
Cassie’s Euphoria makeup is a grungy, glittery look that effortlessly wins Halloween.
