Candy Corn Files – A Simple Eye Look for Halloween

It is a very popular misconception that, just because I’m obsessed with makeup and the different things you can do with a pigment and a brush, that I must LOVE Halloween. I’m sure I’m not alone in the travesty that is being a self-proclaimed makeup artist who constantly dreads the question, “You MUST have a costume planned, right?!”

The truth is, I’ve run into many other makeup artists who love makeup, but don’t jump out of their lashes for the holiday that is now upon us. Well, this post is for them, and for any others who want to be festive without all the hype. After all, I think it’s about time for dolls who wear a full face every other day of the year to put their fists in the air and chant “Makeup for Halloween?! Please, makeup is my life!”

And so, I bring to you a look that took me less time than I normally spend on a full eye look.


Products Used:

  • For inner corner – “Thrash” from Urban Decay’s Electric Pressed Pigment Palette
  • For Waterline – “Punch Drunk” from Urban Decay’s Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color
  • For base, crease, and blend – Urban Decay’s Vice2 Palette (this product is no longer available on most sites.)
  • What made this eye-catching look so easy is the use of an actual lip liner in the waterline instead of an eyeliner! In fact, I love this look so much I might be grabbing a ton more lip liners just so I can use them in my eye looks!

    What is different about using the lip liner? For starters, the lip liner in the water line seems to stay MUCH longer than any eyeliner pencil or gel liner I have ever used. What’s more, the lip liner is smoother to apply! However, this could be because of the formula of the Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color.

    I plan on grabbing a few more of Urban Decay’s glide-on pencil liners, as well as some from this saturated line. So stay tuned on how well these work with other looks! I don’t know about you, but I get giddy over a product that turns out to be multi-purpose. After all, this just means that more room is left in my kit for more goodies!

    Happy trick-or-treating lovelies!
