Staying in, going out, or going all out? Watch how one Honest Beauty does the holiday, from start to finish.
Get your Walking Dead on with a deadly look that screams gory-glam.
We went to LA-based celebrity makeup artist Shekinah Garner for a look that’s sexy, modern and super fast to pull off with minimal products, little effort and zero prep time. (Seriously, you could make this happen in the back of a cab on the way to a party.) Here, Shekinah used an Eyeshadow Trio, a lip crayon, some eyeliner and a set of growl-worthy fake lashes. Pair with some killer heels, a lifeless stare and matted second-day locks, and you’re ready to prowl. Check out the How To below:
Create deadly cheeks. With a blush brush, use Shade 1 around temples and above the outer brows to make them look caved in or hollowed out. Also apply the color under the cheekbones and all around the jawline.
Make eyes. With a shadow brush or your finger, continue using Shade 1 under the lower lash line and on and around the lids. Work the color beneath the undereye area as though you’ve got the worst dark circles of your life. No need to create perfect lines. Roughly line eyes top and bottom with eyeliner. Finally, any zombie with street style has wrinkles under her eyes. Create them with a black eye pencil by drawing crinkly lines under the eyes, as well as in the crease of the eye.
Color in lips. Nothing screams post-mortem like bloodless, purple-black lips. DIY by lining your pout with black eye pencil and drawing vertical black lines on them to create a bruised effect. Fill in color with the deep mulberry lip crayon.
Want glam style with loads of deadly attitude and minimal gore? Cue the Ice Queen. You’ll keep your minions guessing with a killer look that runs just as hot as it does cold.
We went to LA-based celebrity makeup artist Shekinah Garner who created a one-of-a-kind style using beautiful shades of blue on eyes and lips. The only accessories you’ll need are a tiara and an entourage. Check out the How To:
Make eyes. With shimmery silver Shade 3, contour around the hairline down through the cheeks. Use Shade 2, a deep navy blue shadow, to create your eye design shape. Start at the bridge of the nose, moving up around the crease and beneath the lower lash line, then out to a point that lands at the temples. Fill in the shape with the same shade before pushing the color into hairline and fading down forehead. Next, fill in and shape brows with vibrant, deep blue eyeliner. Thick, bushy brows encouraged. Finally, highlight the eyes beneath your arches with a nude eyeliner to make them pop. Top with silver shadow for extra oomph and glimmer.
Create contoured cheeks. Using a blush brush and Shade 2 of the trio, create a dramatic contour under cheekbones on top of the silver Shade 3 contouring applied in the previous step. Next, re-highlight the cheekbones with Shade 3 to add dimension on top of the dark blue contouring.
Color in lips. Dab the cupid’s bow with Shade 3 from the Eyeshadow Trio. Line lips with the iridescent teal Shade 1. Using Shade 2, fill in the top and bottom lips and re-highlight the cupid’s bow.
Normally when you think of the great outdoors, you probably don’t think scary-hot. Think again. LA-based celebrity makeup artist Shekinah Garner rocked this jungle-inspired look featuring brilliant tropical colors and sinister contouring. Check out the How To below:
Make eyes. Start by applying the Shade 1 all over upper lid into the inner corners. Swipe it out well past the outer corners of the eye in an eye mask-like shape. Bring the shadow all the way to the brow bone and into the eyebrows. Highlight the lower lash line as well. With Shade 2, forest green, press color into the crease from the outer corner to the inner corner and blend with a large shadow brush. Next, line the eyes — upper and lower lash lines plus the waterline. Finally, shape and fill in brows with black eyeliner then create twig- or feather-like lines up and off the brows. (Even Mother Nature likes high-impact arches.)
Create contoured face and cheeks. Apply créme blush onto apples and cheekbones — go ahead, be heavy-handed — blending with a sponge. Work Shade 3 shadow, a khaki shimmer, from brows into the hair line around the forehead and temples and down under the cheekbones and jaw line in a “number 3” shape. Add more Shade 1 and 2 for darker contouring effects. Then smooth out the edges with a sponge. With a brush, work the green contour into the pink cheek créme to blend colors together and make them seamless. Finally, use Shade 1 to go over contouring at the jawline, cheeks and hairline.
