  • Halloween Hair and Makeup
    Look 1: Witch

    Hair:

    1. "Blow-dry hair and flat-iron straight back.
    2. "Use Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Cream, applying with a wide tooth comb and slicking back. Focus on the front part of the scalp, creating a vertical section from behind the ears to the top of the crown, leaving the mid-shaft to ends dry."

    Makeup:

    1. "A Halloween staple, the witch is all about a spooky contour. Grab your deepest lip color in plum or dark burgundy and use it as you would a cream contour. Apply with a larger brush (like Artis Oval 6) in the hollows of your cheeks, blending to create a strong shadow that makes an everyday contour look fierce and strong. Make sure to hit places where you would normally put bronzer and contour color: down the nose, across forehead and hollow of the cheekbones. Don't be afraid to layer color to achieve extra intensity."

    Look 2: Mermaid

    Hair:

    1. "Using a small, half-inch curling iron, curl hair in opposite directions to create extra texture.
    2. "Separate curls by finger-combing for added 'piecey-ness.'
    3. "Then, take a 2-inch section on the hairline and create a fishtail braid, sweeping across the hairline and braiding all the way down. This boho-beachy braid is all about playful texture and movement."

    Makeup:

    1. "Rummage through your hosiery drawer and find an old pair of fishnets. Cut them at the toe, then measure 6 inches and make another snip to create your fishnet headband. Place the headband over your face like an eye mask.
    2. "Using two or three of your favorite aquatic colors (Ex: turquoise lavender, silver) and a damp sponge, stipple starting with one color - typically the deepest shade - from the hollow of the cheek to the temple.
    3. "Apply the deepest color in cheekbone, switching shades until the entire forehead into the cheekbone is covered. It's important the fishnet remains stationary during this process.
    4. "Once complete, remove the fishnet and dust a setting powder so your scales stay put. Voila- the ultimate under-the-sea chic!"
  • Look 3: Cleopatra

    Hair:

    1. "Start with a center part, blowing your hair out pin-straight and using a flatiron for sleek perfection (like the Sedu or Babyliss flatirons).
    2. "Take small vertical sections (4 on each side), and braid them into 3-strand braids.
    3. "Then take each braid and wrap gold foils around for extra detail."

    Makeup:

    1. "This look is all about the eyes. To get Cleopatra's vibrant sultry stare, pull out that old blue shadow, your favorite liquid liner and a black kohl pencil. Start by applying shadow from the lashline to the brow using a flat synthetic brush in order to layer and pack on powder to achieve maximum brightness and vibrancy.
    2. "Line eyes generously on the inner rim of the top and bottom lashline. The key to this look is getting in the inner corner of the eye where the tear duct is. Make sure to draw color into the tear duct and all the way to the outer corner.
    3. "Take the liquid liner and line the top lashline with a perfect elongated flick, drawn out at the temple."
