Halloween A Makeup & Outfit ♡

Pretty Little Liars is such a great show and although A was revealed quite a while ago, the thought of A still scares me, so I thought what better to dress up as if you are looking for a last minute makeup and costume for Halloween. I also think it would be super cool to dress up as one of the liars, I actually have an Aria Get The Look I did quite a while ago, which you can see here.

Makeup

Obviously there’s lots of different makeup looks you could do to resemble A, but as it is Halloween, I think it looks good to do something smokey and a little scary.

Base makeup doesn’t really matter too much, you can basically just use whatever you normally use, but as the eye makeup is going to be quite dark and heavy, I would recommend doing the eyes first then going back to the face.

I think a dark smokey eye look is perfect for A, so I would firstly get a dark grey eyeshadow and put it all over my eyelid then take a black eyeshadow and focus it on the outer corner and crease. Then blend blend blend, and apply some more black all over the lid and blend the edges then just keep applying the black until it is looking as intense and smokey as you want it. To add some contrast you could also take a white eyeshadow into your inner corners, to make the look pop that bit more.

This is the point I would probably do my base makeup, and I also think contouring is very important for that perfect A look, so I would contour my cheek bones a lot, and apply some highlight but probably not any blush.

Going back to the eyes, just to make them even more intense and add some more black, I would take a black kohl liner along my tight line and water line as when we did see A they (notice how I’m not giving away any spoilers, as much as I want to) did have quite a lot of eyeliner on. Obviously, A is the master of manipulating people so I think a lot of mascara is key to this look.

There are two options for the lips. The eye is not at all neutral so strictly speaking, you should wear a nude lipstick with it, but this is a Halloween look, so its the perfect opportunity to rock a dark lip, whether that’s a dark red, more of a berry tone, or even a black.

This is a Halloween look, so if you want that extra bit more scariness you could add a scar as if A had been in a fight and got a scar. Fake scars are quite easy but if you want to see exactly, you can watch this tutorial.

Outfit
I’m going to be honest – A doesn’t really have a trademark outfit, other than a black hoodie, so that is what I would recommend wearing. You could basically just dress in all black (black jeans, black shoes, black top and most importantly, A BLACK HOODIE). It’s really simple and you can just make it out of clothes you already have.

Let me know what you are going as for Halloween in the comments.
