Halloween is in less than a week, and if you didn’t have the chance to think about it yet, weekend it the best time to start preparations. The choice of makeup depends on what you are wearing, so that is the first decision you need to make.

If you want to be stylish, you will not want to be over the top and make something too creepy. The easiest and the most elegant solution is to go for goth or vampire look. The first thing you should do is choose the right foundation. Your skin should look pale and you can try the MAC white foundation which can be used for both face and body. If it doesn’t suit you, you should probably stick to the foundation you are usually wearing and blend it with a slightly lighter shade.

The second tip is to choose whether to accent eyes or lips. If you are going for the eyes, you can think of thick black eyeliner, fake eyelashes and even a bit of artistic paint work like Chanel spring/summer 2013 RTW show. Heavy smoky eyes are easiest to make and always look good, and you can do it by encircling the eye with a black crayon and smudging it, or go for slightly more sophisticated version and combine black and dark-grey eye shadow. When you do the eyes, just put a bit of light foundation on the lips and cover them with nude lipstick. If you want to accent your lips, then you may want to choose dark red, purple or black lipstick and finish off the look with a bit of eyeliner and mascara.

If you prefer to go for something more avant-garde, then think of Lady Gaga’s skeleton look. You can play with the combination of black, white and red face paint, or just use black for refined interpretation of the look. And finally, black nails are a must weather you prefer caviar manicure or an ordinary nail polish!
