Halloween Inspiration with FAUX: Cleopatra

FAUX is hands down our go-to resource for false lashes for any occasion. Their lashes range from first date wearable to costume party ready…which is perfect since we’ve yet to nail down a Halloween costume. Luckily, the lovely ladies from FAUX — founder Sterling, COO Miranda, and chief of marketing and PR Alexia — have some fabulous costume ideas. Last week we showed you how to get dark and moody for Black Swan and this week we’ll have you walking like an Egyptian…it’s Cleopatra, inspired by the gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor!

Read on for all the steps to achieve this look. Photos courtesy of FAUX.

Step 1: Flawless Skin

Start by perfecting the skin with a full coverage liquid foundation, and add a bit of bronze sheen to the high planes of the face with a golden highlighter. Set with translucent powder. 

Step 2: Arched Brows

The eyebrows for this look are very defined, use a dark brown or black eyebrow pencil to create the desired shape and then set them with a dark brown or black powder eye shadow using a small angled eyeliner brush. 

Step 3: Dramatic Eyes

Sweep a soft shimmery teal blue eye shadow from lash line to brow bone. Using a black cream liner and your small angled brush, draw a very exaggerated line along the upper lash line extending it out to the temples. Blend the liner along the bottom lash line as well. Take a matte black shadow with your angle brush and draw a line starting from the outer tip of your liner into the crease of your eye, forming a sweeping V shape. With a compact chiseled eye shadow brush fill in the outer corners of the V with the same black shadow, fading it in as you go. 

Step 4: Major Lashes

Curl your natural lashes and apply a thick coat of mascara to top and bottom lashes. Add FAUX’s Dark Slant lashes to enhance the cat eye effect of this look. 

Step 5: Finishing Steps

Apply a peachy bronze blush to the apples of the cheeks, extending the color back along the cheekbones to contour. For the final step apply a bright coral lipstick to the lips and add a dollop of matching lip gloss over the top. Caesar will not be able to resist!

Check back next Friday for the last costume in our series of Halloween inspiration! 

Elizabeth Taylor: Siren, Seductress, And Beauty Icon

She was a superstar, a vixen, a true beauty legend—Elizabeth Taylor was so many things. The two-time Oscar winner will certainly be missed and even if you’ve never seen Hot Cat on a Tin Roof or Cleopatra, chances are you’ve probably smelled her fragrance White Diamonds (which was one of the first celebrity fragrances ever and a perennial bestseller). While I can’t say that I am a big fan of that scent, I am certainly a huge admirer of her beauty style, especially her frequent and precise application of the bold red lip. For decades she sported the perfect crimson pout, and even did so up until the very end, proving that glamor knows no age. Classic, stylish, and so very elegant, these photos have totally inspired me to dig out all my shades of red and start applying with abandon.
