Halloween at Illamasqua

It’s almost that time of year again! This is my favourite holiday because every make-up artist I know goes crazy (including myself!) uploading pictures of their creative faces, it’s the ideal time to play with make up and there are endless looks to create.

Again this year, Illamasqua have brought us an amazing Halloween collection along with some face charts to give that extra little bit of inspiration! Check it out..

I can’t wait to get my hands on those Bat Lashes, they look AMAZING! You can also pick up the Bat Lash Duo, which contains the lashes and the gorgeous new nail varnish in Swarm, for a bargain of £25!

Here are the stunning face charts..

Rick Baker for MAC

The one and only, legendary special effects artist Rick Baker has announced his new collection for MAC, super exciting and just in time for Halloween, yay!

He has created three unique looks to introduce his collection; Zombie, Day of the Dead and Bride. I’m super excited to get my hands on this collection, the theme is right up my street! The collection includes Monster FX, 2 Limited Edition Pro Palettes, 4 Acrylic Paints, 2 Paintsticks, 3 Chromagraphic Pencils, Chromacake, Setting Powder, Penultimate Eyeliner, Face and Body Foundation, and as always, Lip Liners and Lipsticks.

First up, here are my favourite picks from the collection. The two Pro Palettes, Spider Queen and the Monsters’ Bride look incredible. Both contain 6 shades of highly pigmented powders to create whatever look you desire! Spider Queen is full of gorgeous colour, a mid-tone violet (Dusty Purple), a deep, rich aubergine (Indian Ink), dark and shimmery purple (Deep Purple), a citrus-y, bright green (Lime), a warm, yellow green (Moss) and as always, matte, pitch black (Carbon).

The Monsters Bride palette contains shades that are a bit more wearable for everyday. There’s a shimmery, frosted white (Mylar), matte black (Carbon), creamy taupe (Omega), bright lime green (Bitter), brown with green pearl (Club) and a matte, chocolate brown (Brun).
Next up is the Lipstick. An amazing Purple-Black called Cyber. Deep and rich in colour and I can guarantee without even trying it that it’s going to be super pigmented and creamy. MAC lipsticks never disappoint me and this colour is just perfect for A/W.
Next up is the Chromacake. These are a solid colour cake that is activated when mixed with water and is ideal for face or body painting. They can also be mixed with the Face and Body instead of water for a different finish and you can add a pigment on top to create a shimmery, pearlised effect. The one in this collection is an opaque, matte white.
And the final product on my Wishlist from the lovely Mr Baker’s collection has to be the Monster FX designed. Y the man himself. Monster FX is a sheer tint designed to give the skin a subtle wash of colour. This is a limited edition shade called Dirt, which is a warm yellow-brown with ochre undertones.
What do you think, which one will be your pick from the Master of Special Effects?!
