A night before Halloween I found myself in a costume store, realizing that I wasn't going to spend too much money on an outfit that I'd only wear for a few hours. With a bit of imagination and creativity, I scouted a one piece. It looked beautiful and paired perfectly with wings, which happened to be on sale.
On that special annual festivity I had pulled together a very cute costume, keeping the makeup simple. And on this year's Hallow's Eve, I want to help you recreate makeup looks inspired Hollywood stars. For each one I'll use my favorite L'Oréal products.
Morticia Addams through L’Oréal’s Tongue Tied

Whether you're into "scary" movies or not, you can't deny that Morticia is by far one of the most stylish characters in film history. She's mysterious and spooky, altogether ooky, and she sure knows how to rock a black dress and very defined makeup.
To achieve Mrs. Addams' iconic eye makeup, dab L'Oréal's Tongue Tied lipstick throughout your lids, focusing on the areas where you'd naturally apply shadow. And remember: a little goes a long way.
Finish the look with a generous coat of mascara and red lipstick. Not only is the look simple, it's also time friendly.

Halloween makeup doesn’t have to involve extreme transformations. In fact, you can get away with a beautiful look through simple techniques. Think of Supergirl, Snow White and even Wonder Woman—their makeup is always very subtle.
To start, color and correct any blemishes by gliding L'Oréal's Infallible Pro Glow concealer. The formula behind this product is very beautiful and soft, while still being highly pigmented. Due to its gentle and precise applicator, you'll easily be able to concentrate as much product on the areas that you're trying to target.
Not only is the finish dewy, but it also looks amazing under flash photography.
3. Vampy Lips Have Never Looked So Plump

Lensed as one of the most popular film genres in Hollywood, vampire themes are always on demand. And if the lore has influenced us in any way, dark vampy lips can be attributed to the intriguing mystery behind these creatures.
If this year’s goal entails transforming yourself into a vampire, make good use of L’Oréal’s Infallible Paint’s in the shade Velvet Pout. As you'll see for yourself, the product transforms into a stain throughout the night (or day!).
And if you're into autumn makeup, this creamy and intense tube will certainly make a statement.
