Halloween Costume ideas: Vampire make up and how to get the look

Over the past few years Vampires have taken a sexy turn. Thanks to the likes of Twilight and the Vampire diaries, the long fans and white face paint have faded and instead we’ve been given a look, which is sexier and subtle.

If you’re planning on showing off this look at this year’s party then you’ll need the make up to match.
The main thing to focus on here are the eyes.

Get the smoldering look by coating the top lid in a red eye shadow. For extra depth and intensity blend in a grey hue before adding black eyeliner to both the top and bottom lids. Wait for this to dry and then use a brush to line the bottom lids with some red eyeliner too.
To achieve the pale look go for a creamy foundation a few tones lighter than your usual before adding red lippy to complete the look. See our gallery above for all the bits you’ll need.
