With the Halloween festivities in full swing, it is the perfect time to switch up your current go-to look and incorporate elements of the vampy makeup trend into your morning beauty routine. So, whether you need a universally flattering vampy lip colour to transform your look from office chic to date night glam, or you’re adding the finishing touches to your Halloween inspired smokey eye, we’ve got you covered.
There is one product that will always inhabit the bottom our makeup bag throughout Autumn: dark, vampy lipstick. Although purple is a bewitching shade for Halloween, violet lipstick is no longer purely reserved for the spooky festivities. A-listers, such as Rihanna and Beyonce, have been spotted rocking the purple lip trend, bringing it into the modern beauty realm for all to obsess over. If a purple pout isn’t for you, don’t be afraid to go dark with a matte black lip this season. With black lipstick coming in a variety of shades and hues, from true, midnight blacks to deep blackberry shades, it can be worn alone or with other lipstick shades layered to create your very own DIY beauty moment. Why not try out this risk-taking trend for yourself?
A vampy lip may be one of the biggest Autumn beauty trends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use the same palette to vamp up your eyes. The glamourously grungy halo, smokey eye trend flooded our social media feeds last year, and it has been confirmed that this look is still the hot ticket to a killer Autumn look. This technique involves applying the darkest shade on the inner and outer corners of the eye, and then packing a lighter, shimmery shade in the centre of the lid to achieve a halo effect. For the Autumn, opt for deep burgundy tones to create depth and a metallic deep bronze shade to highlight, or darken it up with black and grey shades for a sultry vampire look come Halloween.
