Create beauty looks you’ll be wearing long after Halloween!! With the continued popularity of all things supernatural, dark bitten lips and smoky eyes are still all the rage. As Halloween draws closer, it’s time to get sinfully seductive with your make-up with a few beauty treats from 17, available exclusively at Boots.
Accentuate your lashes with a bit of black magic. 17 Wild Curls New Mascara in Wildest Black, 9ml, £5.99 is their blackest and most volumising mascara yet. Add multiple coats to create sultry lashes that will hold their super long length for up to ten hours and cast a smiling spell on anyone that catches your eye.
For the perfect sultry look, Vanesa Guallar, 17 make-up artist, suggests: “Apply the mascara as close to the root as possible as this will help make them look super, long, bold and striking. For a more dramatic party look, add multiple coats to your lashes – you can never have too much volume for party season!”
As seen on the catwalks of Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy, the key lipstick trend this season is a dramatic dark lip. Re-create a vampish pout with 17’s new intensely pigmented lip colour, Lasting Fix Lipstick, £3.49 in New Black. This purple-black tone is a great statement shade, perfect for a night out and will suit most skin tones.
Complete the gothic look with a plum nail colour 17 Fast Finish Nail Polish, 8ml, £2.99 in Gemstone. For even more on-trend talons, finish with 17 Nails Xtras Matte Top Coat Polish 8ml, £3.99 which will mattify and protect your nail colour.
Whether you want to simply update your look with a gothic twist, or go all out this Halloween, 17 has all the make-up essentials you need to perfect the look. Boots No 17.
