Okay, babes, we are in for a real treat today! As an adult Halloween can get a little…iffy, but thanks to our stellar Beauty Editor Breann, we are kicking off the first (of many!) adorable, totally-doable, office friendly halloween makeup tutorials! First up, the classic Twiggy! – xoxo, LK
October is finally here! It seems like fall is in full force as all the pumpkins begin to arrive at local markets and my pantry becomes stocked with bags of fun size Reese’s! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love dressing up and having the opportunity to experiment with new makeup, hairstyles, and costumes. For the entire month, I will be sharing a new Halloween look every week with tutorials! To kick us off in the right spirit, I wanted to start with a super easy makeup look that anyone can pull off with the products currently in your cosmetic bag.
Twiggy has long been a major icon in the modeling world, and a symbol from the swinging 60’s! This look is perfect for anyone who needs a last minute costume, or simply doesn’t want to spend too much time getting ready for a party.
To start, you’ll want to do your face makeup as usual by applying foundation, filling in brows, and concealing under your eyes.
Skip the bronzer and sweep a peachy blush across the apples of your cheeks.
Next, apply some black eyeliner across your lids near the lash line. Instead of curving up like a cat eye, you’ll direct the curve downward slightly. Following this step, you’ll want to apply a line with either your liner or black eyeshadow along the crease of your eye from the inner corner to the outside.
Apply false eyelashes if needed, then take your liner and apply little lines mimicking lower eyelashes along your bottom lid.
Top off with faux freckles (I used my gel brow filler), and a touch of some sweet pink gloss.
For your hair, simply take a deep side part and slick back into a tight bun. That is unless you really want to commit and get a pixie haircut!
You could easily pair this look with a simple sheath dress and bold jewelry, or pay homage to Twiggy’s London roots like I did with a classic trench coat! You know the drill – try it out & tag us! We (seriously!) would love to see your Twiggy looks, so make sure to use #LKBeauty and/or tag @laurenkelp
Stay tuned this entire month for more Halloween Hair and Makeup Tutorials!
