Omg yay, Halloween week on my blog where I show you 5 different Halloween Costume tutorials, yes please! To start this week off, I’m going to be showing you a super basic but effective costume tutorial, I’m going to be recreating a Velma Halloween costume because who doesn’t love Scooby Doo? I also feel out of the two, Daphne and Velma, I’m definitely more like Velma on so many levels. I feel this is a really easy Halloween costume because she has really minimal makeup but I’m not very good with basic makeup so I’m going to do more of a me makeup.
First things first, I am going to do my base makeup, the first product I am going to use is my Revolution Conceal and Define in shade 0.5, I put this on my blemishes and under my under-eyes and then I blend it in using a flat top brush. I then used my Rimmel Stay Matte powder, using a fluffy brush I applied it all over my face. Velma doesn’t seem to wear much makeup so I’m not going to do a harsh contour, the product I’m going to use is the Revolution Contour and Highlight palette, using an angled brush, I applied contour to my cheek bones, the top of my forehead and on my jawline. I then applied the same highlighter from the palette on the top of my cheekbones and along my nose and cupid’s bow.
For eyes and brows, you can’t really see Velma’s brow’s in any photos I’ve looked at so I’m just going to do them the same way I do them on a daily basis. I’m using the Revolution Brow Pomade in shade Medium Brown for reference and I use an angled brow brush to apply it, I feel this is the best way to apply your brows. In terms of eye’s, the eye shadow palette I’m going to be using the Revolution palette in Iconic Fever and I’m going to create a super basic eye look as I’m going to be using the orange shade in the palette to create a super natural look which also goes with the costume. I ran this shade all over my lid focusing on the crease and then I applied it to my lower lash line. I then used my MUA black Liquid Liner and created a very thick line over the lid and then created a small wing just so it doesn’t look too natural because that just isn’t me. I then used my normal mascara and applied a few layers to create long lashes.
Finally for lips, I’m going to be using my normal everyday lip which is the MAC Retro Matte in ‘Burnt Spice’. As seen in some images of Velma, it doesn’t look like she wears any lipstick but I thought I’d use this lip colour because it’s my lips and better type of lip.
I have very different hair to Velma which is pretty obvious, for this look, I’m just going to straighten my hair because she never has curly hair so it is definitely the better option to straighten it. I have quite short hair but definitely not as short as Velma’s, I will then clip my sides behind my ears just so it’s not in the way. If you wanted to go all out there, you could purchase a dark brown short haired with a fringe wig from Amazon for pretty cheap.
For the costume, I’m going to keep it pretty basic, for the top of the costume I am going to be wearing an orange bandeau top that I got from Boohoo a few months back because I feel that it brings a sexy look to the outfit, alternatively I have an orange sweatshirt type thing so I could also wear that if I wanted to fully recreate the look. for bottoms, I’m going to be wearing a black basic skirt which I got from Primark for only £2.50 which is a bargain. I am also going to be wearing grey knee high socks to bring the outfit together. For shoes I’m going to wear my black Chelsea boots.
That’s the whole look complete, I really hope you enjoyed the read and thank you so much for reading. Let me know in the comments what your thinking of going as for halloween also a new post will be up tomorrow showing you another Halloween look.
