Halloween is just around the corner and I’ve teamed up with my lovely friend at Nerd-ily Blog to create a full Snow White-inspired look. She’s amazing at creating costumes, so definitely check out her Snow White look and see how she made it! This is the image of Snow White I’m going off of for reference.
While most people go out and shop for makeup for Halloween looks, I decided to shop my own collection. Snow White’s look is very simple so you can definitely wear it to work or school and keep wearing it since it’s not Halloween makeup.
Starting out with my face I’m going to use my Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer in Vanilla From Chantecaille ($72). This is a really expensive tinted moisturizer but you can use your current foundation. Because we’re getting into the colder months I don’t really need to set my tinted moisturizer with a powder, but if you need a recommendation I’m absolutely loving my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($38). For blush, you would want a baby pink. That shade doesn’t go well with my skin tone so I used MAC’s Desert Rose ($23). It’s a dark mid-tone pink. It’s not the right shade for the look but goes well with my skin tone.
If you want to get fully accurate you can make your brows thinner to match how hers look. I’m not good with doing my brows that way, they just come out looking horrible. I would just do my brows like I normally do.
For the eye look, I’m going to do a nude shadow all of the eyes. Because the photo looks like she’s not wearing shadow you can do two things: a shimmery shade like MAC’s Naked Lunch ($6; pro palette), a minimal pink with shimmer, or Soft Brown ($6; pro palette). Soft brown is a soft golden peachy brown shade so it’s going to add some color to my lids. If you do Naked Lunch, Cork ($6; pro palette), a muted golden brown, would look great as a crease color. If you have issues with crease, don’t forget an eye shadow primer. I’m currently using and loving the new(ish) Photo Finish Lid Primer Light from Smashbox ($21).
For mascara, use your current or favorite mascara. I’m currently testing out the Physician’s Formula Organic Wear. I used this years ago, so I guess you can say I’m retesting it. I don’t wear false lashes since I’m allergic to the glue, but this is a look you would definitely want to wear them.
For lips, you definitely have to go with a classic red. MAC’s Ruby Woo could work perfectly, but I went with a new lipstick that I purchased during the ULTA sale from Physician’s Formula called Red ($6.99). This is a gorgeous red lipstick that has a lot of shine too it. Ruby Woo is a matte, so it’s just a matter of whether or not you want to do a matte lip.
Above is the finished look. Please note I’m not a makeup artist and this is just a Snow White-inspired look that you can do for Halloween. You can see that, minus the lipstick, it really works for an everyday look. I love the lipstick, but a lip liner is definitely needed.
What do you plan on doing with your makeup for Halloween?
