Whether you’ve had your Halloween costume ready since August or you’re simply after a boo-tiful look to help you get into the spirit while passing out candy, you’ll appreciate these easy and wearable makeup tricks and treats.
Vampy lips and nails
A quick swipe of a dark burgundy lipstick is all you need to rock your inner vamp. Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Superb Wine has mega-staying power so it won’t smudge or pull a vanishing act. To maximize intensity for the most dramatic effect, apply the color straight from the tube, blot with a tissue, and apply a second coat. On your nails, a coat of Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Midnight Plum layered on top of a coat of Licorice conjures the perfect dark hue.
Witches’ brew nails
You’ll have all the magic you need at your fingertips with a hocus pocus-inspired mani. Paint nails with two coats of Avon Nailwear Pro+ Mega Metals Nail Enamel in Green Sheen then highlight just the tips with Gold Dust for a two-tone mani that casts a spell.
Feeling frisky? Unleash your inner feline with a classic cat eye look. Start by lining upper lids from the inner corner of your eye to the outer with Avon True Color Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black. Next trace over the line, but only from the middle of your eye to the outer corner while angling the pencil to create a wider line. Then just above the outer corner of your eye, flick the line up toward the outermost point of your eyebrow. Finish with two coats of a curling mascara for an eye-opening effect. Try Avon True Color Wide Awake Mascara in Black.
A smoky eye is sultry anytime of year — give yours a gorgeous goth twist by blending shades of purple and gray. The selection of shadows in the Avon True Color Multi Eyeshadow Quad in Purple Haze allow you to control just how dark you want to go. For a daytime look, opt for the lighter hues. Witching hour? Use a heavier hand with the deep plum and charcoal shadows. Finish with three coats of Big & False Lash Volume Mascara for the ultimate spider lashes.
PSL (Pumpkin Spice Lids)
For a sweet and spicy look, reach for the pumpkin spice...makeup, that is. A dusting of peach shadow from lashline to browbone topped with a darker, shimmering orange creates a frothy look that flatters all eye colors. The Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in Orange Crush is crease-proof and long-wearing.
