Dark Angel Halloween Costume tutorial

The second to last Halloween look I am going to be creating, this one is super exciting because I love it, I dressed as a dark angel for Halloween one year and I was super excited to recreate it again. I’m definitely not an angel and I saw so many looks on Instagram of people recreating a dark angel and I immediately wanted to recreate it also. This is a super good look for anyone who is last minute, like me and wants to put together a really quick look, the only thing you will need to rush to get is some black wings but these can be really easy to find, or you could order some on Amazon maybe, okay, of course I’ve over talked, let’s get straight into the post.

The makeup

This is a super easy makeup look and you could definitely add your own twist to the makeup look if you really wanted to. For base makeup, first off, I am going to go in with my Conceal and Define concealer and apply this to my blemishes and spots, I don’t have many at the moment so it’s not that bad, I rub this in using my fingers as I feel this works best. I then went in with my Rimmel stay matte powder in Translucent and applied this using a fluffy brush. For contour and highlight, I went all in with the contour, I feel this adds an extra look to the makeup look. The contour palette I’m using is of course the Revolution contour and highlight palette, I applied quite a lot of contour onto my cheek bones, forehead and jaw line, I of course made sure it didn’t look dirty so I applied some more powder over the top. I then applied some highlighter to the normal points of my face using the highlighter in this palette.

For brows, I’m going to be using my Revolution angled pencil to fill in my brows, this is a really good product as the angled aspect makes it easier to draw the arch and carve out the rest of my brows. I just filled them in the same way I normally would. For eyes, I’m going to be doing the exact same eye look I did in my Wednesday Adams makeup look as I feel this would go really well with this look.

I am going to be using Revolution Redemption palette in Iconic 1, this contains a lot of dark shades including the perfect black shade. This palette doesn’t come with shade names so I am going to show you all the shades I’m using through a photo. The first shade I am going in with is the matte brown shade, this is the only shade that can be used as a base shade so I applied this to my crease to start building up that transition using a fluffy blending brush. Next I went in with the dark brown shade and focused this mainly on my outer corner and crease, I also put some along my bottom lash line, this is a perfect shade to go in with just before adding the black shade so it looks built up. I then went in with the black in this palette, it is shimmery so this is perfect for this makeup look, I ran this mainly through my crease and anywhere that needs darkening up, I ran the tiniest bit along my lash line, something I must note about these shades are that they are so pigmented so you don’t need to use much at all. I then added the excess from the brush into my inner corner and around the rest of my eye just to bring the look together. For eyeliner, I’m just going to go in with my MUA liner and create a small wing and then I used a Khol liner in my lower lash line to darken up the look a bit more and this brought the whole look together. Lastly, I applied some mascara, I used both the Primark and the Miss Sporty mascara and this created both volumized and lengthened lash’s.

For lips, I took the same khol liner that I used on my inner corner and started to line my lips and fill them in, I don’t own a black lipstick because it’s obviously not an everyday lipstick shade but I think it goes perfect with this look.

The hair

For hair I’m going to be keeping it really basic but you could do whatever you’d want for this look, as shown in the photo, I have just curled my hair normally and left it like that, I thought this went really well as I could cover one of my eyes with my fringe to add a creepy aspect to the look.

The outfit

The outfit is definitely the centre of the whole look, first off, I wore a plain black dress which I’m sure everyone has that perfect black dress which can be warn in this look, for bottoms, I am wearing some fishnet black tights which I’m obsessed with but their definitely out of my comfort zone, I am then also wearing some lace up boots I got from Primark for Christmas last year. I am then also wearing my black leather jacket because this adds a more gothic vibe to the look and I feel it tops off the whole look. On top of this, you can’t forget the wings, I am wearing some black wings I got from Poundland which is amazing as their so affordable.
