The Vampire Diaries Inspired Halloween Makeup

I always find deciding what to dress up as for Halloween really hard and never really go all out. This year I felt the same and as The Vampire Diaries is my favourite TV show I decided to try out a Katherine/Elena inspired makeup look.

To create this look I started off with using two foundations, a dark one for around the outside of my face and a light one in the middle to create a contoured look. I also contoured and highlighted my face to make it look a little more sculpted. For the eyes I decided to go for a dark black and red smoky eye using MAC Carbon and Coppering as well as the red from my Kryolan Grease palette. For the veins under the eyes I mixed together the red and black colours from my grease palette and used a fine liner brush to draw them on (you don't need to be neat at all). To make my eyes a little more dramatic I added some falsies and also did my brows a little darker than usual. As you never really see Katherine or Elena wearing dark lipstick I stuck with a nude lip (dark got all over the fangs) and again used the red from my grease palette for some blood. To top off the look I obviously needed some fangs which you can get here on eBay for only £1.99!
