    How to create bleeding eyes Halloween make-up

    • Start by applying your normal face of make-up, if you wish – we’ve applied a neutral base of foundation and concealer and some winged eyeliner
    • Use the black gel eyeliner and a firm-tipped brush to create small branch shapes, extending out from your waterline and down across your cheeks
    • Smudge the lines slightly as you draw
    • Add spots of the red lip lacquer to the black lines and rims of your eyes, again smudging slightly as you apply
    • Darken the inner rim of your eyes with the kohl eyeliner
    • Repeat the same process on your other eye. Don’t worry if they’re not symmetrical!

    And you’re ready to hit the Halloween party!

    Tip: Apply red lip lacquer to your lips as well for a more dramatic, vampy look!

    (Note: When choosing your make-up products for this look, it’s important to select eye-safe products and take care when using the lip products around the eye area).
