When I think of vampires, a few words come to mind such as dangerous, seductive, pale, bloodthirsty, and beautiful. For today's Halloween tutorial I tried to keep all those elements in mind for this sexy vampire makeup. While you may not actually be dangerous (raises hand), pale (not me again), or bloodthirsty (unless it's kool-aid) you can still look like the beautiful undead to go with your costume this year.
Check out the tutorial below!
Here's the finished look:
The main concept I was going for was to keep everything really sharp and angular which meant plenty of contouring, thinner brows, pointy lipstick, and eye makeup that would emphasize the inner and outer eye corners.
Also, can I just say that these Geo Color Nine Deep Red lenses are some of the most comfortable circle lenses that I've tried? I thought it would look really scary, but for costume lenses the red is actually really beautiful! The rich red color matches the lips really well.
From the various fangs I checked out, these petite ones seemed to look the most comfortable and realistic. The color of the fangs is pretty close to my natural tooth color as well, but as fair warning wearing them does give me a slight lisp. Not as bad as others I've seen speak while wearing fangs but still. It takes a bit of practice! Otherwise they fit well and are easy to pop in.
Hope you guys enjoyed this look! Let me know if you decide to be a vampire this year and send any photos you might take of the look to my Twitter and Facebook.
