Part 3 of the Halloween collection! This time, we’ll do one of the most popular, classic monsters of all time, the Vampire!
But for this look (and the last one tomorrow), a new set of artists have volunteered to show off their talents. Also, I invited one of my favorite bloggers, Frances Amper of www.topazhorizon.com and www.beautyforaliving.com to help write this step-by-step guide. Thanks Frances for taking time off from your super busy schedule! 🙂
Skip the cliched cape, powder white skin, and fake fangs and be as mysterious and dangerous as a vampire should be!

The look we were going for was inspired by the glamorous and sexy vampires of the Underworld, not the sparkly and angsty ones from Twilight. So Shu Uemura makeup artist Mickey See said you don’t have to pile on the white foundation. What’s important here is the flawless finish.
As a vampire, you should look like you had just had a bloody dinner, so your lips need to be alarmingly red! As a bonus, it’s also the shade that makes your teeth extra bright and white so there’s no need to put on fake fangs!
Since our inspiration is the sleek Underworld vampires, L’Oréal Professionnel’s hairstylist Raymond Santiago decided to make the hairstyle simple yet very striking.
If you don’t have a natural widows peak, it is very easy to create one. Using a brush dipped in black eye shadow, just mark the middle of your forehead, about half an inch from your hairline. Use a guide like masking tape or calling cards to create a V-shape.
Time for the clothes and the shoot! Marie Claire’s former fashion editor and Preview’s 2009 Best Dressed, Pam Quiñones, lends her edgy, rock chic style to our model with some head-turning pieces!
