All hail the pumpkin queen! @raydiatebyrachel is owning spooky makeup this Halloween with this jack-o-lantern look that’s hauntingly beautiful. Just look at that detail! You can get this sweet and spooky makeup look with just a few faves - including our Take Me Back to Brazil palette! See full tutorial below!

Eyes

Step 1:
Shape your eyebrows with the matte black shade from our Take Me Back to Brazil palette - then feather upward at the beginning of each brow. Raychel chose the matte black from our Take Me Back to Brazil palette!
Step 2:
Use bright and burnt orange shadows to mimic a shadow right above the brows.
Step 3:
Use bright and burnt orange shadows to create a smokey eye - your choice of matte or shimmer on the lid!
Step 4:
Pick up a red shadow to deepen the outer corner of the eye.
Step 5:
Use a gold and copper metallic cream shadow to create a half cut crease and add some glam to this spooky makeup look.
Step 6:
Using a copper colored loose glitter and glitter glue - like our Base Booster Glitter & Shadow Glue - place the glitter in your inner corners and blend into the shadow on the lid.
Step 7:
Use a gel or liquid liner to create a killer wing, then add some mascara and feathery lashes to complete the eye look.

Face

Step 1:
Apply a ghostly light foundation and concealer over your face and neck to create a base that will make the rest of this look POP.
Step 2:
Set your face with a powder - like the banana-esque shade from the BH Studio Pro Contour Palette.
Step 3:
Using a nude liner pencil, you sketch out all the areas on your face and neck that you’re planning to fill in with black paint. Map out the black parts of your face using both the image of a skeleton and a jack-o-lantern, while the lines on your neck should mimic roots spreading down your body.
Step 4:
Next, use a black gel eyeliner to fill in the outline and all the thin pieces of black on your face and under eyes.
Step 5:
Use a black eyeshadow crayon pencil to fill in the rest of the black on your face and neck.
Step 6:
Use a matte black shade to set the gel liner and crayon pencil.
Step 7:
Use the bright orange, burnt orange, and true red shades in the Take Me Back to Brazil palette to create deep shadows in between all of the black crevasses that you created variance in the shadows helps add to the creepy aspect of this look. And revel in your perfect pumpkin look!

101 Shades of Glam

Villains don’t always get a lot of love from the fandom, but we’re ALL about this spooky makeup look from @makeupp_bynicole - featuring a guest appearance from her adorable pup!

Step 1:
Map out all lines of your initial placement and block out your eyebrows using any glue stick before setting brows with powder.  Nicole used our Studio Pro Matte Finish Pressed Powder in #205.
Step 2:
Fill in eyes, nose, mouth and neck with any cream-based paints to be a base of the eyeshadows - providing a more cartoon-like effect.
Step 3:
Go over any cream paint with eyeshadows to create depth and perfect shading - then go back over with black liquid liner for more detail.
Step 4:
Add colored contacts and lashes to top and bottom of eyes to complete the look. Nicole used our Modern Mattes palette for all shading and Liquid Eyeliner in Black for detailing.

Taking a flat face brush - like the Flat Blending Face Brush from our Sculpt and Blend Brush Set - stipple red paint all over your face and try not to get it under the stickers.
