Thanks to the awesomeness of True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and, of course, the upcoming final movie in the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, we definitely want to go as a vampire to at least one of our Halloween parties. The trouble is, we have a feeling that vampires are going to more popular than ever in 2012. After all, it’s in Breaking Dawn: Part 2 that Kristen Stewart’s character Bella becomes a vampire for the first time. It’s definitely the Year of the Vampire! We still want to make sure that our costume stands out in a sea full of undead party guests. Here are some of our favourite vampire beauty products, along with a vampire beauty tutorial to help you use all the makeup you already have at home to achieve your scary yet still sultry vampire Halloween look. Think Jessica from True Blood!
We LOVE these temporary face tattoos at Claire’s that give you blood red vampire tears in one easy application. We suggest saving the tattoo of the bite mark for a lucky guest… unless you can convince your boyfriend to go as Hoyt from True Blood! The tattoos come off easily at the end of the night with either makeup remover or just a good face wash. The best part is, they’re only $9.00! Check them out at Claires.com.
If you really — and we mean really — want to go all out for your vampire costume, we suggest getting disposable contact lenses in red. Clearly Contacts makes a pair for just $24.99, but be sure to talk to your optometrist before trying them out.
To help you get in the mood for Halloween and all things vampire, we suggest checking out the Home Shopping Network‘s True Blood-inspired line of beauty products called Forsaken. The collection includes scented nail polishes with vampy names like “Let It Bleed” by celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, as well as Lippmann’s first ever lipstick, the blood-red hued “Bite Me,” which is also scented. To complete the collection, there’s also a fragrance designed by famed perfume company Givaudan, a body cream, a body veil powder, and a DL & Co. candle, complete with a lid with a fang on it (the perfect hostess gift for the Halloween party you’re attending, perhaps?). The Forsaken Collection gives a whole new meaning to the term “eternal beauty.”
Now, here comes the fun part! Go raid your makeup cabinet for the palest shades of powder and foundation and darkest shades of shadow and eyeliner that you can find and watch this vampire makeup tutorial below for the ultimate vampire costume this Halloween.
