Halloween Series: Selene/The Black Queen Inspired Look!

Hey True Believers!

I’m baaaaaaaaack! For the month of October, I’ll be doing Halloween looks for you to wear with your costumes this year! I won’t be doing any awesome special fx makeup like my friends over on YouTube, but I’ll be doing some more sexy/vampy/smoldery type looks based off of a few movie characters and a certain doll who I have a fondness for๐Ÿ˜‰ (For a hint, take a look at one of last years Halloween looks on my blog!).

So to start things off, I wanted to do something vampy and sexy and thought Selene aka The Black Queen would be perfect! She was a villainess who was an X-Men foe and was basically a psychic vampire (she fed off the life force of others). She was a mutant andย sorceressย who also had the ability to raise the dead (See the Necrosha story line) along with many other abilities. She was the perfect villain to start the Halloween looks off with!

For the color of the eye, I pulled inspiration from the photo above, which has some black and red around the eye. I didn’t go with the black lip (I didn’t want it to read super goth, but you can totally do a black lip if you like!), but wanted to darken the corners a bit and use a deep dark red all over. I definitely wanted to do a dark, vampy, smokey eye with this because Selene just seethes darkness! It also allowed me to use the awesome Gaga lashes Faux sent me, so there will be a mini review on the lashes as well!

I hope you like!
