Your foundation and concealer has to be blended in the usual manner although you can skip the chin portion if you wish since a large rainbow is soon going to be painted on the same. A dash of pink can be added to your cheeks and nose for imparting that rosy glow and brightening up your complexion. Pink lipstick has to be applied only on the top portion of your lips while rainbow lines have to painted down your neck starting from the bottom lip.

You need to start with this Halloween eye makeup by creating large circular smoky eye using a cream based eyeshadow spanning both under the lower lash line and over the lid.

Next you will have to map out some lines which can represent the contours and gills on both the sides of the face using the same product. The lines can be blended in a downwards motion using a flat brush unless it fades out evenly. A reflective eyeshadow has to be patted over the shading for maintaining the color strength in all those places where the shading is darker.

An extreme feline flick can be drawn along the top lash line using a gel or liquid eye liner which has to be connected with the lower lash line. You can create a sharp statement lip by applying some black cream eyeshadow and finishing it off by patting some shimmery eyeshadow at the centre of your lips.



You need to start with a dry and clean face for applying some primer which can help your face paint in staying intact throughout the evening. You should also allow a resting time of few minutes in between application of the primer and face paint so that the same can set properly. While proceeding with the face paint, you need to choose a background color and create an even layer of the same over your face using a sponge. It is advisable to choose a light color base as that can be shaded later on as per your requirements. You need to start from the center of your face and slowly work outwards.
