It’s that time of year again – pumpkins are popping up in gardens, sweets are taking over the supermarket shelves, and let’s face it, who hasn’t thought about their costume yet? Halloween is coming and we’ve got the guide so you can kill the look. Come on girl, get your slay on!
Once Upon a timeWhat has only been successful in recent years is the result of a millennium of the Celtic feast, celebrating the end of the summer and the beginning of the dark season. According to the Celtic gods, during this time the veil between the terrestrial world and the spirit world was particularly thin, fairies, elves and the spirits of the deceased could reach the world more easily. Irish emigrants took the custom to the United States, where he developed from the eerily dark celebration to the more cheerful folk festival. In the 90s, the Halloween wave spun back to Europe, where the horror festival has now become a fixed date. Halloween parties are held every year in clubs, bars or in private. The Dress code: From the all-out elaborate costume with mask and wig to sexy outfit everything is possible!
Halloween is the opportunity to finally get the hair crazy. For example, always wanted to know how dark black hair looks like, with a washable tint you can take the plunge without the commitment. If you prefer to experiment with brighter colors, grab color hairsprays – check out trends such as color blocking or the dip-dye look. Pink and blue highlights are especially hot this Halloween!
Terrifyingly Beautiful MakeupIf you don’t hide your face under a mask, you will not want to do without make-up to compliment your costume! Vampire, witch or undead zombie-bride - a pale-masked complexion offers itself as the basis for many Halloween looks. To get the look, the face is first made with very bright make-up, then fixed with powder and then a setting spray to keep it in place. Care should be taken to blur the neck between the jawline and the neck, thus providing a smooth color transition.
Even eye make-up with false eyelashes and lots of black around your eyes might be too thick in your everyday life. On Halloween, dark smoky eyes and extra-long, wrong or multiple thick-eyed eyelashes are available in many costumes. Waterproof liquid kajal conjures up a thick, sweeping eyeliner, which still holds on the wildest party. The ‘eye or lip but never both’ rules that should always be avoided are deemed more than fitting for Halloween: despite heavily emphasized eyes, the lips can also be painted blood-red, dark or with kajal even black.
Get your claws out!On Halloween, every lasting nail polish trend can finally be accepted! What doesn’t necessarily correspond to the dress code in the office is explicitly desired on Halloween: bright green, bright blue or shiny black - every color is allowed! Long, artificial nails or nail art glittering designs, small stones and wild patterns for sticking on.
Take it offEven after the wildest night, a thorough make-up removal is part of every evening's outfit. Since the look is probably a bit more intense than usual, the remover must be thoroughly but with lots of care so as not to irritate the skin. A final spray mist thermal water spray helps the skin recover, as well as a good overnight moisturizer.
