How to apply vampire makeup

Your rating: None
Vampire makeup is great for halloween or dress up parties where you want to make a statement.
What you'll need: 
Powder Brush
Black kohl liner
Matte black eyeshadow
Steel grey eyeshadow
Navy blue eyeshadow
Fluffy eye brush
Red lipstick
Apply the foundation all over your face using your fingers. This will warm the foundation and allow a more natural look. You want your face to be a perfect canvas. You can apply concealer to blemishes, however do not apply it under your eyes since you are going for a vampire look.
Apply powder over your entire face using the powder brush. Vampires have matte skin and the powder will enable you to create that.
Apply the black kohl over your entire eyelid, this will be the base for your eyeshadow.
Apply the silver shade using the eyeshadow brush on the balls of your eyelids towards the inner corner.
Apply the navy blue in the crease of your eyes in a wind-shield motion making sure to pack in the colour.
Apply the matte black eyeshadow on the outer corner of your eyes blending it out to create a cat eye and soften the edges. Blend all the colour together softly just so it looks seamless.
Line your eyes with the kohl liner and the bottom lashes smudging it to create a softened look.
Apply two to three coats of mascara on both lashes.
Apply your favourite red lipstick, you want it to be matte.
Use lipliner if you want it to last longer
