I'm going to a zombie-themed Halloween night this weekend and I did some experimenting for make-up ideas a few nights ago... here's some snippets from my playing around.

Concealer, then some of Evil Shade's Fiendish lipstick (dabbed and smeared), and a bit of Concrete Mineral's shadow Hearts.
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean, black from Sleek Curious palette, more Hearts from Concrete Minerals.

I didn't get great pictures of my other eye, but I was going for a totally different effect so I'll show it anyway:
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils in Milk and Black Bean, Concrete Mineral's Frost, Meow shadows in Royal and Tutankhamun, black from Sleek palette again. The glitter is from Morgana's Twinkling Cherraine, I used it initially and decided it was too bright. Tutankhamun and Royal look very coppery here, but in reality they're both rich, metallics - burnt plum and dark red, respectively. I could also have used Sassy's Ruby Slippers, another lovely metallic red. If I do repeat the look on this eye, I'll be packing grey shadow on instead of the white, I think it made it a little too stark.

I also used Smoke and Mirrors from High Voltage, dusted lightly over my face to grey and mattify. My boyfie's letting me make him up a bit for the night so I'll try to take some more shots of the two of us before we actually go out. I'm super excited!

Anybody else got plans for Halloween?
