What cosmetics will be required

Let’s list the necessary and sufficient for Halloween pumpkin makeup for girls.

  • Foundation. Before you start your pumpkin makeup, you need to prepare the skin by making it a couple of tones lighter. This will make the makeup look brighter. Choose your lightest foundation and apply it all over your face, including your eyelids and lips. There should be no contrasting areas. The face is your makeup canvas.

  • Concealer. If one foundation failed to mask the pigment on the lips, apply concealer over it – blend it so that there are no boundaries. Also choose the lightest shade of concealer. Widget: Touche éclat high cover

  • Powder. After you apply foundation and concealer to your skin, it’s important to powder your skin. This will allow the pumpkin pattern to last longer in its original form, not to roll and not to leak in the first few hours. Product widget: All nighter waterproof pressed powder

  • Sculpting powder or stick. With these tools, you will darken all the necessary areas in your drawing. We recommend using a stick, as it makes it easier to draw intense bright lines. The cut edges allow you to draw them quite thin. Product Widget: SCULPT & HIGHLIGHT FACE DUO LIQUID TWO-SIDED CONTOUR - CHESTNUT / SAND 05

  • Eyeliner. You need it in order to outline the outline of all the black areas, which then have to be painted over with the help of shadows and a flat brush. Product widget: Couture liquid eyeliner

  • Black shadows… Choose an ultra-black shade. But if there are no such at hand, they will help out and gray ones. You just need to apply them with a wet method, that is, with a brush dipped in water. This will make the shade more saturated and bright. Product Widget: Maybelline New York Eyeshadow

  • Orange shadows. When applying, you can use the same life hack as in the case of black eyeshadows – wet application. This will make your makeup look brighter and more effective. Product widget: Matte mono shades.  NUDE MATTE SHADOW - FRISKY

  • Makeup spray. So that the makeup does not drip, and the drawing remains graphic for longer, it is imperative to spray a fixing spray on the face at the end.Product widget: All nighter
