Hello beauties, today’s post is a few of my favourite makeup up picks that will be seeing me through the spooky season. I have created two creepy looks below too!

Danessa Myricks Vision Cover cream foundation

One of my favourite makeup artists has her own makeup line and is now being sold in the UK! The way she makes skin look is so incredible so I knew I had to pick up her foundation. It provides full coverage and I only have to use one pump to cover everything. The finish is semi matte and makes the skin look like silk. This is the perfect base to wear on its own daily or as a base for applying colourful face paints for your costumes.

Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray

Name a better setting spray than the All Nighter. I’ll wait! Jokes aside this setting spray is a game changer for your makeup. I use this after using all my powder products to 1. Set everything in place and 2. Make my powders look less dry. It’s pricey at £24 but I won’t be without this miracle in a bottle. I often get it when it’s on offer in the Debenhams promotion!

Sleek I-divine Bad Girl eyeshadow palette

I’m pretty sure I included this palette in my 2017 halloween favourites and it still does the job. It has everything you need to create a intense smokey eye. It has the most gorgeous plum purple and royal blue, along with a gun metal silver and the most pigmented matte black. I don’t think it’s currently being sold anymore but I have found it on amazing for less than £6. It’s so pigmented too!

Phoera Red single eyeshadow

I used this in a full face of eBay makeup video not so long a go. It’s always a real struggle to find a bright red that’s not dry, patchy and is pigmented. This single eyeshadow is the most gorgeous classic red. The colour payoff is insane and it’s super easy to work with. I picked this up for a bargain £2.18.

Illamasqua Beyond Powder highlighter

I reviewed this not so long ago here. It’s a very finely milled white highlighter with the most ghoulish green shimmer to do it, perfect if you’re after something a little different to the pink, gold or champagne highlighters and perfect to add to a spooky look.

Sleek Highlighting Elixir drops

This liquid highlighter is new to my makeup collection. I love that this can be used two ways, as a highlighter and mixed into foundation for a dewy effect. I did both in the second look below and it really changed to the appearance of the foundation. I love the peachy pink shade and the wet look sheen it provides without any chunky glitter.

NYX Soft Matte lip cream

Is it Halloween without a dark lip, I love being able to play with out there colours like this NYX matte lip cream in the shade ‘Moscow’ which is a navy blue. I am a big fan of the formula of the Soft matte lip creams.

NYX Strictly Vinyl lip gloss

I recently reviewed a few items from the NYX Strictly Vinyl collection here. I love a glossy finish and this shade ‘femme fatale’ which is a stunning black just screams Halloween. I love it paired with this bright red eye for a contrast of colour.
