Treat Halloween Tutorial – Illamasqua Nebula Lipstick

Treat Halloween Tutorial – Illamasqua Nebula Lipstick

This month we’re bringing you two special design boxes, Trick or Treat – which will you receive? Packed with 5 stunning beauty products, you will find a full-size Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in the shade Nebula or Energy! We took a trip to the brand-new Illamasqua beauty counter in Selfridges to bring you some super glamorous Halloween looks using your new lipstick.

If you received the Treat edition, take a look at our Halloween tutorial using the Illamasqua Nebula Antimatter Lipstick below. If you received our Trick edition check out our Energy tutorial here. You can also check out our video of the day here.

Treat Makeup Tutorial 

Step 1 – Eyeshadow Primer

Apply the Ilamasqua Skin Base Concealer as an eyeshadow base.

Step 2 – Eyeshadow

Next, apply the Antimatter Lipstick in the shade Nebula from your Treat box to the back of your hand and use it as an eyeshadow. Use an eyeshadow blending brush to apply the product into the crease and blend outwards. You can also apply this under your eyes for a really striking look.

Step 3 – Extra Shimmer

Then, use the Illamasqua Pure Pigment in the shade Static, a gorgeous metallic, high-shine powder that can be used to highlight your eyes, cheeks and brows. I recommend using a small brush so that the pigment is easily controlled.

Step 4 – Mascara

Coat the top and bottom lashes with the Illamasqua Masquara in the shade Raven.

Step 5 – Prime your skin

Prime your skin using the Beyond Veil Primer and then the Satin Primer on top to add shimmer and longevity to your look.

Step 6 – Foundation

Apply the Skin Base Foundation and blend it until you achieve a flawless finish. This is a high coverage foundation so a little goes a long way! We also used a light shade of the Ilamasqua Skin Base Concealer to highlight.

Step 7 – Blusher

You can even dab a very small amount of the Nebula lipstick onto your cheeks. To get the most natural finish, apply with a light dabbing motion and buff!

Step 8 – Highlighter

Illamasqua highlighters are incredible. We used the shades OMG and Daze to add even more of a glow to Jess’s cheekbones and cupid’s bow!

Step 9 – Eyebrows

Define your eyebrows using the Illamasqua Brow Cake! We used the shade Thunder to carve out Jess’s brows to add definition.

Step 10 – Lips

Line your lips first using the Illamasqua Lip Crayon in the shade Media and then apply Nebula on top. We then used the lipstick shade Eclipse in the centre of the lips to create an ombré effect. You can also add a small amount of the Static pigment on the centre of the lips for extra glamour.

Step 11 – Heart Detail

For a bit of Halloween themed fun, we added some hearts using the Precision Gel Liner in the shade Infinity.

The Finished Look

Our Trick or Treat boxes were so popular, we’ve now sold out – no tricks! We still want to treat you though, so when you subscribe we’ll send you an iconic pink box of our most loved beauty products. Rest assured, each box will contain at least 5 products, including 2 full-sizes and is worth over £50. Join us here to receive one.

I think it is so important to follow a beauty routine that works for YOU - you don't need to follow the crowd. I am always researching and trying out new looks, products and routines that are fresh and popular amongst the global beauty community to keep up to date with what's on trend and what works best. If you name a product, I've probably tried it.
