Easy Halloween Makeup: the "Fortune Teller"

Hello beauties! Who's ready for Halloween? It's been a busy October for me so far and I haven't had much of a chance to play around with costumes or makeup... This look was something that I came up with as a last minute, quick costume idea for Halloween and I think it turned out quite nice. The best part is that it can be achieved using regular makeup and clothes that you already own, so it eliminates the need for learning special effects techniques and going to the costume shop, not to mention, saves you time and money. I call this look the "Fortune Teller Flapper" and it's my perfect, go-to, last-minute makeup for this year's Halloween. Hope you enjoy and find it useful!

The Eye Look: Keeping most of the theatrics and skills in the eye makeup, I decided to pack on the glitter and use orange and black as the main eyeshadow colors. This look is very dramatic and fit for a Fortune Teller costume since it utilizes the exotic liners technique, keeping the eyes as the main focus of the makeup.

Dramatic Orange and Black Cut-Crease Makeup Tutorial:
  1. Prime the entire lid with Eye Base. Using Suede eyeliner, draw a wave shape halfway between your lash line and brow (this line should imitate and exaggerate your natural crease) and thicken the line at the outer portion. Line the lower lash line as well and wing it out.
  2. Use a dense detailing contour brush to blend out the liner, then add Fawn (matte nude) eyeshadow ("In The Nude" Palette) to deepen it. Bring the shade down in the inner portion to meet with your nose contour.
  3. Use an angled liner brush to sharpen the cut-crease using Force (blackened purple) eyeshadow ("In The Nude" Palette). Blend the shade upwards to gradually fade into Fawn. Line the lower lash line as well, keeping very close to the lashes.
  4. Using a flat eyeshadow or concealer brush, apply a coral / orange shadow ("Muse" Palette) over the entire black lid and wing it out in the outer portion.
  5. Mix a bit of glitter adhesive and "Magic Dust" glitter to create a glitter liner and apply the mixture to the entire lower lash line. Clean off the brush and add neon orange micro glitter on top of the lid.
  6. Line the top lash line with Black gel liner and paint long, extended the wing, keeping parallel to the cut-crease. Use a micro liner (liquid eyeliner in Noir) and outline the lower lash line, keeping close to the lashes, then wing out both ends. Add spiky falsies and mascara to complete the look.
