Scary Pumpkin Halloween Make-up with #HQScare

HQ Hair kindly sent me a box of surprise Halloween goodies, including some scary DVD's from Zavvi. They asked me to create a Halloween look with the products for their #HQScare campaign.

I didn't know what was in the box prior to receiving it so I wasn't sure what look I was going for, but as soon as I saw the bright orange Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush I knew I had to create a scary pumpkin look.

I used Halloween Youtube videos for inspiration and pulled this look together in 10 minutes, so I would be ideal for those who don't have much time on Halloween night to get ready.

I use the Daniel Sandler Watercolour blusher as my base, it was very runny but had a slight silicone texture so it was easy to blend across the entire face, it wasn't streaky either.

The black 'craved out' eye sockets, nose and mouth were drawn on with eye kohl and deepened with the Maybelline Matte liquid liner and some black eye shadow. With that same eyeshadow, I smoked out the lines to give the pumpkin a more scary, rough finish. I didn't want it to be too perfect, so applying it messily made it look even more scary.

There was some other interesting goodies in the box that HQ Hair sent over, including a face wash, which was much needed when I attempted to remove all the black liner. The Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor blue lipstick is very unique. It's blue in the bullet but transforms into a beautiful blackberry shade on the lipstick, it's magical! I'm yet to try the dry wax spray from Evo, but it looks interesting.
Thank you to Terri at HQ Hair for sending me this lovely Halloween package!
