Halloween this year also happens to be the 6th birthday of one of my favorite makeup brands, Illamasqua. Makeup artist Alex Box gives us some fabulous ideas for Halloween makeup using some of her favorite Illamasqua products. Check it out:
For the creepy black smile in this look, Box used Illamasqua Lipstick in Kontrol with a generous layer of Sheer Lipgloss in Tantrum on top. The eye look was created using Powder Eye Shadows in Obsidian, Inception, & Static.
For this look Box created the chiseled, gaunt cheekbones of a skeleton, but the full pout of someone fully alive. For the sunken eyes, she used Powder Eye Shadows in Sex, Incubus & Obsidian. For the juicy lips, these were created using Lipstick in Sangers with Intense Lipgloss in Touch.
Certainly the more innocent of the looks, Electra Doll is all about the eyes. Box used a combination of Pure Pigment in Furore, Powder Eye Shadow in Sex, and Powder Eye Shadow in Machine. She also used Precision Gel Liner, followed by Lush Lashes. For the nude pout, she used Lipstick in Sonnet and Sheer Lipgloss in Electrify.
The supernatural red eye in this look was created using Powder Eye Shadow in Obsidian and Daemon. To further accentuate the eye, Box used Pure Pigment in Berber and Grandeur Lashes. The blood-soaked lip look was created using Lipstick in Maneater and Pristine, followed by Intense Lipgloss in Touch.
