Hello my pretties, and welcome back to the Spooktacular Halloween Week. I do hope you enjoyed the ghoulish ghostly look from Monday. I’m going to take it up a notch today and go for a more glamorous yet devilish look. Whether you are thinking of a blood sucking vampire or a blood curdling devil, this look can be adapted to suit anything that summons up the thought of blood and spine tingling fantasy. It’s funny because I’ve never really been one to wear red but as soon as I have donned my red dress, I feel like a different person. It’s definitely got me feeling a bit devilish!
I am totally crushing on this red frill bardot dress from Pretty Little Thing. I can never usually get any with wearing bardot dresses due to the need of a bra, but the frills cover up the lack of support from the strapless bra that I’m wearing, and I really like how girly and flirty I feel it. In a skater dress style, the dress pulls in at the waist to give some shape, and the frills cover my problem areas ie. my lack of waist at the moment. I feel really confident in it, and although slightly shorter in length than I would usually wear, it looks great with a pair of heels and the addition of some Vita Liberata Body Blur to smooth out my skin tone. I’ve found these little devil accessories in Poundland of all places. A devils fork, a headband and a devils tail, which I didn’t feel was necessary for the look.
I think I have fallen in love with wigs and I want them in every style and colour. The Vixen wig from Hot Hair is a particular favourite of mine. Made from synthetic hair in a dark red, it has an adjustable band that secures it to my head without the need for glue. The colour does look slightly different in real life than it does on camera and the natural light makes it look a lot more red than the deep red that it is. That being said, I love how it looks on and I think red could possibly be a strong contender for my future hair colour.
My eye makeup look took a lot longer to do than the ghoulish dead look that I created on Monday. Using Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able foundation, and fully contouring with my Iconic London cream contour palette, I wanted a flawless yet sculpted look. On my eyes, I used MAC Carbon with Venetian Red and Love Letter from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. Using a black felt liner I gave myself a sharp liner bringing the inner corners in towards my nose. I have also fallen in love with the Kiss Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes in Little Black Dress. I absolutely love them on. They’re not only comfortable but they’re not insanely over the top and I feel that I could wear these throughout the day as well as for an evening.
Pretty Little Thing have some fab Halloween inspired accessories including these glitter face stickers to resemble dripping blood. They are easy to apply, easy to remove and are so comfortable on the skin that you actually forget that you are wearing them. I think they are a really great product for upping your Halloween game.
I think this could be my favourite outfit so far! Don’t forget to check out my post from Monday for a super easy ghostly look.
