Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
Halloween is here and while we’ve come across a *HEAP* of impressive makeup inspiration on the interwebs (check out 2018’s best celebrity Halloween looks here), we’re going to be honest – we think we found this year’s winner.
Redditor SarahIsSoCoolLike posted this epic Halloween makeup look on Reddit’s Makeup Addiction subreddit - and Beetlejuice has never looked so good.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Beetlejuice, here's a little FYI:
And here is SarahIsSoCoolLike's AH-MAZING Beetlejuice makeup look:
We love this pretty interpretation of a classic spooky Halloween look, and the good news is that it’s actually doable! SarahIsSoCoolLike went on to explain the exact products she used to create the entire look, so if you’re still stuck on an idea for an upcoming Halloween party, you might want to steal this.
First up, she started with that killer wing using NYX Professional Makeup Gel Liner in Black and White, followed by Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in Porcelain (we can’t get this little guy in Australia just yet, but Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer will give you similar results). And it looks like steady hands are a must! She said, “I just did a wing with the white liner to begin with and then went in and verrrryyyy carefully did the stripes with black liner (making sure not to get anything above the white wing) and then cleaned up the bottom with concealer!”
But how did she get it so damn sharp? “I just made sure to let it dry/set before doing another coat,” explains SarahIsSoCoolLike. We reckon this is a good tip for any kind of winged liner action! “Then I went over the white and black parts and used eyeshadow to make sure everything was as even as I could get it! It takes forever though.”
For her brows she used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Auburn and NYX Professional Makeup Tinted Brow Mascara in Espresso. That amazing pop of purple on her lids was courtesy of BH Cosmetics First Edition - 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette (we think she also used this palette for the green-coloured section of her brows).
She then applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit in (what looks like) shade Helia on the inner corners on her eyes, before popping on some Eylure Lashes and a swipe of Benefit RollerLash Mascara on her bottom lashes.
