Glam Vampire Halloween Look – Sppppooookkky…


Hey there, my name is Lizzie, I'm a freelance hair and makeup artist and wanted to share some of this week's work...  

I had loads of fun the other day creating a glam wearable Halloween vampire look with CODE Beautiful’s Co Founder Sarah Cross…. If you’re prepping Halloween party looks here is a step-by-step guide please do share your finished looks with us on Facebook!      

  1. When doing a strong eye make-up look,  I always start with the eyes as you can clear up any fall out before doing the base.
  2. I started the eyes by applying By Terry hyaluronic eye primer in number 1 all over the lid
  3. I then took an small angle brush and created the shape with MAC eye shadow in carbon on the eye lid
  4. Laura Mercier caviar stick in smoke was then taken all over the eye lid and blended with a fluffy eye brush
  5. I went underneath the eyes with Kevyn Aucoin eye pencil in basic black and smudged it out with MAC eye shadow in carbon with a pencil brush
  6. With the Kevyn Aucoin eye pencil in basic black I lined the top and bottom waterline
  7. I applied concealer to the inner corner of the eye using Laura Mercier secret concealer number 1.  I buffed this in with a fluffy eye brush
  8. The first coat of CODE Beautiful’s CODE VLM mascara was applied to the top and bottom lashes using the fab roots wriggle roll technique 
  9. Now to the skin, Sarah had already applied moisturizer so I went straight in and applied Dr Brant pore refiner playing particular attention to the T-zone
  10. For foundation I used Laura Mercier silk crème in rose ivory, which was buffed into the skin with a real techniques buffing brush thank you pixi woo!
  11. Sarah has lovely skin, so just needed a little bit of Laura Mercier secret concealer in SC-2 to cover a couple of blemishes
  12. To set the foundation I applied Laura Mercier translucent powder
  13. Now to eyebrows which I defined using Kevyn Aucoin eye brow pencil in brunette with MAC eye shadow in brown using a small angle brush
  14. The eyes looked like they needed a bit of highlight so with a pencil brush I took MAC eye shadow in white frost and applied it to the inner corner and brow bone
  15. A second coat of CODE Beautiful’s CODE VLM mascara was applied to the top and bottom lashes again, it’s ace for build-ability !
  16. Back to the skin now with two Kevyn Aucoin products.  To contour the cheekbones I used the sculpting powder in medium and to highlight the tops of the cheekbones I used the celestial powder in candlelight
  17. For blush I used Laura Mercier crème blush in canyon to the apples of the cheeks
  18. To get that vampy look to the lips I lined them with Kevyn Aucoin eye pencil in basic black and smudged it inwards with a lip brush
  19. The main lip colour that was then applied was By Terry rouge terribly in 203
  20. A little bit of Lipstick Queen big bang gloss in energy was put on top
  21. Now finally as this is a wearable but dramatic look a third coat of CODE Beautiful CODE VLM mascara was applied to the top lashes for #CODEXXL look!

Happy Halloween peeps, cant wait to see your looks on the CODE Beautiful page… Love Lizzie x
