Want to mimic a vampire? It can be done easily with a bit of effort and smart makeup. It doesn’t take much time either and you can flash your new found vampire look in no time. We have put together some tips to help you get the desired vampire look. The important thing to keep in mind is that you should darker shades since vampires have a lighter skin but darker lips and darker eyes. The overall look should consist of paler skin and darker eyes that tend to stand out. White foundation or even baby powder works well for the base. Just mix it well and rub all over so your overall appearance will be a bit paler. If your skin is of a darker shade, a little bit of extra effort is required. Vampire eyes appear abnormal and if you get the eyes right, half your work is done.
Dark Eye liner
Dark eye liner is the key once you decide to go for a vampire eye makeup. Use eye liner and then a dash of black mascara to get the perfect vampire look. Perfect the eyes with liberal use of dark eye liner before you apply foundation. Since vampires are nocturnal and also un-dead, you should also try for the same look. Liquid eyeliners work best and if you can get your hands on some, go for it! You can also try making small rings that will give an added eerie appearance.
Use light foundation
Perfecting vampire eye makeup needs a bit of light foundation. Since vampires have a pale skin, you need to select the right foundation, something that is of a lighter tone than your skin colour. This will not only help in enhancing your eyes but will also give you the perfect vampire look. Contrast this with eye shadow that is on the darker side to perfect the vampire look. If you are in the mood to experiment, you can also go for glitter eye shadow that will add that extra appeal.
Vampire can use their eyes for hypnotising, so you might want to consider wearing contacts. Contacts that sparkle or are extra shiny can greatly add to your vampire look. A large variety of eye contacts are available and you can easily choose the one that you like. Experiment as much as possible, some people even like to for different colours on each eye. Black contacts are available easily but you may also try different darker shades for perfecting the vampire look. Some contacts even come with mysteriously shaped pupils that work perfect if you are trying for the vampire look.
Add dark circles
Vampires hardly get any sleep and therefore, they tend to have dark circles. Use a dark shade and apply well under both eyes. Then rub it well to get the desired dark circles. If you can’t find the right shade, even a dark colour lipstick will often work as a good substitute.
