Get the Look - Bewitching Eyes for Halloween

Updated 03/05/2011 & 03/06/2011

This is strictly my own personal opinion about the matter. All material uncovered was done through a public google internet search with a few different keyword entries.

Due to information uncovered and revealed about this company, I cannot in good conscience or good faith recommend anyone support this reportedly handmade, organic small business. If information had been disclosed prior to discovery by the shop owner herself, I would have no problem with continuing to purchase. Regretfully, the scope of the lie and how many different people it could have potentially affected and hurt leaves me no other choice than to say this is not an honest company to do business with.

For information as to why, you can read more below:

Ok ok ok, so it's inspired by All Hallows Eve.

I've been positively dying to do a dark, sexy and over the top look. So one night... I did. This is what I came up with! If it needed to be labeled- you can say this is very cyber-goth-esque, definitely a fantasy look suitable for clubbing or a night out... However if you're extra-brave, it can certainly be worn during the day.

The complete list of cosmetics is as follows:

Moi Minerals eye shadow in Panic, and Lip Treatment Plumper Gloss.
I needed the most vibrant purple I could find in my collection... This was it! A rich, beautiful violet with a hint of sparkle was just what the gothster called for.
When I finished up my lips, I put on a slightly tinted gloss to blend the colors slightly together, and moisturize my pout.
(*)Panic was a free sample provided to me.

The Starshine Company eye shadow in Royalty.
The perfect compliment to Panic- this rich pink tone has a lovely purple undertone and flecks, which tied to the whole look and brought it together wonderfully.
(*)Royalty was a free sample provided to me.

Orglamix Cosmetics in Midnight & Black Magic, and Magnetism Eye Primer.
Midnight is a matte black shadow, which I used to outline where I wanted the shape of smoky black to go. Once it was blended out slightly, a beautiful sparkling color aptly named Black Magic was then applied for epic shimmer and sparkle!
Magnetism was applied as a primer first before any of the shadows went on.
(*)Black Magic and Magnetism were free samples provided to me.

My Beauty Addiction eye shadow in Pearl.

This color was used to highlight my brow bone very brightly. This is necessary considering how dark the makeup is- and we want the eyes to literally pop with color! It's a beautiful, shimmery, bright white shadow.
(*)Pearl was a free sample provided to me.

Other ingredients I used, and which were all purchased by me:

Maybelline Ultra Liner in Black.
A waterproof eyeliner I use to "paint" the dots on my face.

Wet 'N Wild Cosmetics.
I used both a black kohl eyeliner pencil to fill in my waterlines on the top and bottom lid. I also used it lightly as a lip-liner for a darker look.
MegaLength mascara was applied in two coats to upper lashes, and one coat to bottom ones.

Fantasy Lashes from Spirit Halloween Store
I picked up these feathery goodies at the store, along with a tube of eyelash glue- and there you see it on my face in their full glory!

FreshLook Contact Lenses in Amethyst.
Yes, they are my own. Yes they are prescription... Yes they cover the blue in my eyes, but I wanted to bring the purple look entirely together and have violet eyes for this occasion.

So there you have it- that's what's in the recipe book for this look!


  1. I could see this look being used with a Halloween costume... like a sexy gypsy or fortune teller or something!

  2. I'm going to have to do this one again.... I loved it! It's super-sparkly... And the colors really POPPED... It's a shame you can't see how much in the photos!!
