If you’re anything like me, you’ve been trying to find ways to sneak some Halloween style into your every day routine. Whether it’s home decor, food, movies or makeup, it’s never a bad idea to really get into the holiday spirit. One of my favorite looks lately has been to incorporate a vampy style into my beauty regimen. Since I work during the day, it’s still important that I keep everything office appropriate. Today I’ve got three products that’ll be sure to put a bit of spook in your step this October!
First is the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Scarlet Red. This is honestly the best matte lip color I’ve ever used. Although it’s a bit pricey at $26, the quality is hard to beat. The color is super pigmented and it glides on smoothly for a perfect vampire style lip!
Second is the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” set of nail lacquers from Morgan Taylor. I love that these guys are so little, but pack a powerful punch. The red lacquer, “Pretty Woman”, is the perfect shade to match your lip color. However the black is my favorite this time of year. It says “Halloween” without being over the top or inappropriate. Top any one of these colors with a clear top coat or even the glow in the dark lacquer the set comes with.
Lastly, and I’ve shared this before, is this MAC highlighter. Now Twilight totally ruined vampires with the fact that they “sparkle”, but there’s something to be said for having a nice glow. Simply sweep this on the tops of your cheekbones for a more defined face, or dust all around your eyes to really draw in some attention.
