Halloween collaboration with Poundstretcher part 1: Cleopatra

Cleopatra blog 1

This year I am collaborating with Poundstretcher to bring you a few Halloween makeup looks and tutorials using products from their Halloween range! I’m going to be sharing a couple of fun tutorials for children but wanted to kick off the bewitching project with a makeup look for the adults!

Poundstretcher kindly sent me a lovely package full of makeup and dress up goodies to use to create the looks The package included:


  • Two neon striped wigs in black with pink and black with orange – £2.99
  • Vampire kit – £1.99
  • Witch kit – £1.99
  • Fangs and blood kit – 99p

The first look that I created was the modern day Cleopatra which you can see below.


What you’ll need:

  1. Black grease face paint from the Witch kit
  2. Brown grease paint from the Witch kit
  3. Fake blood from the Fangs and Blood kit
  4. Your favourite foundation
  5. A black eyeshadow/powder (I used my HD Brows palette for this as the colour is so dense)
  6. A thickening mascara
  7. False lashes
  8. Neon striped wig

How to:

  1. Perfect your base first using your favourite foundation
  2. Take the brown grease paint and use the colour as a contour to define your cheekbones – this colour works perfectly for fair skin
  3. Take the black grease paint on a fine brush and fill in your brows – set with your black powder
  4. Using a liner brush, use the black grease paint again to draw on a thick feline eye flick
  5. Line the upper and lower lids with the grease paint making sure to extend the line at the inside and outer corner of the eyes
  6. Take a black eye shadow and use to set the grease paint outer corner flicks and to contour the socket line to add depth
  7. Add mascara and lashes
  8. Take the brown grease paint from the Witch kit once again and use this as a lipstick
  9. Using a cotton bud, take the fake blood and dab a little to the corner of your mouth. Keep adding a small amount until the blood begins to run down the mouth
  10. Take your neon striped wig and place securely onto your head – I cut the orange streaks out of mine so that it was completely black.
  11. Add your favourite jewellery et voila, your look is completed!
