 photo natieditions00 449_zps8bcddfqe.jpgAww, yiss! Halloween is upon us and it’s time to embrace our spooky selves… if you don’t do that already year round.   photo 831992_zpsdpx7jtlh.gifToday, I have the 3rd makeup tutorial in my fall series this year. This look features a burgundy / maroon monochromatic makeup  using the Kat Von D  Sepentina Palette and the Shade+Light Palette, with a strong wing and vampy lip from Colourpop.

And yes, another Type O Negative title.

 Let’s get to it!

Primed eye, brows done, blah blah blah.

From the Kat Von D Shade+Light Eye Contour Palette, I took the shade “Laetus” on a big ole’ fluffy brush and laid it down as a base shade from lid to brow bone.

“Laetus” creates a nice neutralizing base for the other eyeshadow to blend into and since it is a more yellow cream shade, it gives a little warm.

Next, on a fluffy crease brush, I took “Ludwin” which is a warm reddish camel shade and one of my favorite shades for a transition or just warming the crease up. I applied it rather heavily into the crease for this look and blended it all the way up to the brow on the inner portion and blending it out toward the tail, following the natural contours of my eye enhancing that my eyes are kind of deep set and I have a strong browbone.

Kat Von D Serpentina Review + Looks

With the aubergine shade called “Queen” on a flat brush, I packed it onto the lid, up to the crease and blended it slightly just to soften the edges. Since this shade had a pearlized finish, I want to keep it just in the lid so I don’t accentuate how hooded my eyes are.

Taking my favorite shade in the palette “Bloodmilk” a warm matte red, I blended into the crease with a small dome crease brush and blended the shade out into “Ludwin” following the same shape but keeping most the pigment at the crease and directing it out toward the tail of the brow. I went back and forth with “Bloodmilk” and “Ludwin” until I got the blend I liked.

Then I added a bold black wing and cleaned up the edges with a bit of primer and a cotton bud.

For the lower lashline, I blended “Ludwin” first, letting it blend down kind of low.

Then adding a bit of “Bloodmilk” closer to the lashline.

And then “Queen” all the way across and close to the lashline.

Some black kajal liner to the upper and lower waterline and a bit more blending to soften it on the lower waterline with “Queen”

A few coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and the eyes are done!
