Hallowe'en Beauty news - Illamasqua and more
Yes, yes, it’s Hallowe’en this Friday, I am sure you are all very aware of that. No matter what you are doing this Hallowe’en – whether you like basic scary makeup, or a full-on Hallowe’en high glamour makeover, or just a subtle nod to the season, there are products out there for you.
First up, Illamasqua. The brilliantly bonkers brand goes BIG on Hallowe’en and you can get a makeover at any of their counters, for £50, that will outshine all other Hallowe’en makeovers on the block! Choose from Violetta, Xenia, Electra Doll or Countess. Visit illamasqua.com for more details.
If you want classic stage makeup style Hallowe’en makoevers, then visit the website skinbysterex.com, and go wild with StageLine cosmetics, Mistair hair colours, Laukrum blood and suchlike, and Mistair body paint. Stageline have some brilliant vampy lip shades of liner and lipstick (£9.10, £16.20).
If it’s fake blood you need, Laukrum’s clever water based product, Artificial Blood, £13.1o, can effectively simulate wounds on the body and be easily removed with soap and water. Take it to the max with such as scars with Laukrom’s Latex Artificial Skin, £15.70. The liquid latex can be applied straight onto the skin in layers or you can create a wound using tissue and apply the latex over the top to fix it in place. The latex can also be ripped and pulled to create different skin textures that look spooky and gruesome!
Mistair Airlites Hair Art Colours, £13.25, non-permanent water based airbrush hair colouring system has a range of natural and vibrant fashion colours, including Emerald Green, White, Imperial Red, Purple Quartz and Silver Fox. Apply as stencils using an airbrush system, or paint on. Mistair mistFX Aqua Body Paints, £12, come in bright greens, pumpkin oranges, and many more shades.
