Get creepy this Halloween season in a wearable way with this new "Vamped Up" makeup palette! There's a fine line between full on Halloween makeup and chic alternative looks and this tutorial will show you how to embrace the season without looking too overdone!


Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Mushroom/Pale Grey Shimmer (about $19.00)
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Blackout/Matte Black (about $19.00)
Urban Decay Glide On Eyeliner Pencil in Perversion/Black (about $20.00)
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in Black (about $23.00)
Urban Decay Naked Flushed Compact in "Naked" (about $32.00)
Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Damned/Black Cherry (about $20.00)
Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw/Brick Red (about $20.00)


Step 1:
 After applying your favorite primer and foundation, pick up a pale, grey toned eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer. I chose Urban Decay's "Mushroom." Apply this all over the eyelids and lower lashline and blend softly outwords.

Step 2:
 Apply a matte, black eyeshadow to the outer crease. One without shimmer looks a bit better than one with, too much glitter can be a negative thing. I chose Urban Decay's "Blackout" eyeshadow.

Step 3:
 Line your waterline with a matte, black liner. Urban Decay's Glide On Liner in Perversion is a perfect shade and so soft and easy to apply. Also, line the upper lashline and pull this out into a cat eye. Smudge the lower waterline subtly.

Step 4: Coat your lashes in a volumizing mascara. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara in Black is extremely natural and voluminous, perfect for this look.

Step 5: Grab a tonally similar highlight and contour shade. I picked up the Urban Decay contour travel palette called
which comes with three shades that work well together. Love how easy it was to blend!

Step 6: With a matte liquid lipstick, coat your lips in a deep, deep rich berry shade. I love Kat Von D's liquid lipstick line. "Damned" is the perfect dark cherry shade. Coat your lips, and allow to dry.

Step 7: Pull out a brighter red shade, almost brick red and ombre your lips by putting this shade in the middle of your lips and feathering it subtly outwards. I chose Kat Von D's Outlaw Red. You're done!
