HOW TO SELF-SPOOK: For Killer Queens’ Makeup


With Halloween coming up, let’s break down this makeup look so that you can kill in order to get all the spooky love this season.

For Killer Queens

Ooh, this look is for a drama queen. It takes a basic look to the next level that can be achieved by adding glitter or design or anything that makes you feel a bit extra.

Specifically with this look, understand your eye shape and how that may affect the design of the web. The web design that flatters hooded eyes is not the same design that flatters monolid eyes. If you have almond eyes, you can do pretty much any sort of winged eyeliner that you want. Hooded eyes and down-turned eyes can use the same sort of stroke, keeping your eyeliner thick on the outside of your eye and thinner toward the inner corner. If you have monolid eyes, keep it thick all the way across. Upturned eyes should use thinner eyeliner and round eyes should go for a cat-eye wing.

Choose a design that makes you happy. You could turn your eyeliner into a bat wing or bones, if you get creative with it. For this look, we went with a spiderweb and drew the look down onto Terry’s cheekbones.

The eyeshadow work on your lids is entirely up to you. In this look, we went with a redder tone for the eyes and a barely-there glitter. However, you could use any of the spooky eyeshadow colors mentioned previously or a basic smokey eye.

Use white, black, or glitter eyeliner to achieve a perfectly dramatic web by creating multiple “wings” and then connecting the lines in a weblike manner. Your strokes should be delicate and connected. Eyeliner is tricky business, but if you’re patient, it’s worth the effort.
