Not into dressing up for Halloween? Go goth with your makeup thanks to Rimmel London!

I was never much into dressing up for Halloween. Don’t get me wrong, I love the holiday, just not the dressing up part so much. Where I used to work, the whole staff would dress up, so I “sort” of participated- I’d goth up my makeup instead of dressing up. Much easier for me and not as humiliating as wearing a banana suit like my boss. Yup. And we had to call him the Big Banana too. Sigh. So, if you’re like me, you might want to try this look!

The products are from Rimmel London! From left to right: Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick #04, Rimmel Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex Mascara, Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Eyeshadows in Black Cab and English Rose, and Rimmel Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in Black

Start with a moisturized and primed face. Trust me, you don’t want to put your foundation on before using all this black makeup. Take the Rimmel Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in Black and line your upper lash line as close to the lashes as possible. Don’t worry if it’s not neat, because you’re going to smudge it anyways. Do the same thing to your bottom lash line. Then take the Rimmel Black Cab eyeshadows, specifically the black and pat that on top of the kajal eyeliner. You should now look like a raccoon with some winged eyeliner. Hot.

Then take the silvery taupe shade and put that all over your lid. Darken the outer corners with a winged V shape and blend that into the crease. By the way, these Rimmel eyeshadows are really creamy for drugstore eyeshadows! Yeah, I know the wells are kind of tiny, but I can still manage to get product on my brush.

Then, take one of the brown shades from the English Rose quad and blend a tiny bit into the crease to warm up the eye just a bit. Take the Silvery white shade from the Black Cab palette and dot a tiny bit under your brow and your inner eyes for a bit of shine. And, since it’s Halloween and you’re going goth, take the grey eyeshadow and darken your eyebrows just for a bit of extra drama. Then add some mascara, like Rimmel Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex Mascara. The wand is HUGE, but this mascara rocks! It’s just wet enough so that you can keep building up layers.

Look at the size of that wand! But you know, it was actually easy to use and I didn’t poke my eye out.   And it sure makes the lashes stand out against all the black. No false lashes required! Voila! Goth eyes!

Now, you can do the rest of your makeup. You might want to whiten up your foundation a bit, and do some extra contouring. Goths have major cheekbones, so suck in those cheeks and sculpt baby!

Last , but not least you want a vampy lipstick. And Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick #04 is perfect!

There’s no other way to describe this lipstick: it’s a deep, purple! Actually it’s pretty close to MAC Cyber or MAC Yung Rapunxel. It’s pretty darn comfortable I have to say. It’s supposed to be a matte finish, but it kind of has a bit of a sheen to it.

Now I know, it’s PURPLE. And you’re scared. So, blot it down and then you won’t feel so obvious.

See! Tamed Goth isn’t so bad! But I say go for it! It’s Halloween! Just remember to change out of your Snoopy baseball shirt before you start trying to look menacing.

There’s only one way to make a Snoopy shirt look more menacing.You need a cape to cover it. And frankly, goths are more serious. You know, sad. Serious. No Snoopy shirts. Truth be told, if I knew about goths in high school, I totally would have been one. My wardrobe was already mostly black!

You’re going to need the cape to hide from the sun. Goths don’t like the sun much.
And you might want to get a cape with a collar. It’s just classier, ya’ know? I need to upgrade mine stat.

There you go! How to go Goth for Halloween thanks to Rimmel London! Affordable and wicked fun!

So, do you dress up for Halloween? 
More importantly-how many Snoopy shirts do you think is too many Snoopy shirts when you’re 45? Please say more than three.
