Not so subtle Halloween with Lovedrobe

This year Halloween has fallen on a day that I'm working but I haven't let that stop me getting into the spirit. My day job is an office job and from the smiles today I'm hoping I brought a little Halloween spirit and at least some smiles into peoples' day's.

This is my outfit for the day, I chose this amazing dress from Lovedrobe with its patterned skull print (this is in the sale now, get it while it lasts), teamed it with a leather jacket, sketchers off black boots and my devil horns as well as a red lip to really go with the red flowers in the dress and the horns. The dress is made by Koko, the fit is good but I would size up next time as I found the material slightly clung at the beginning of the day, by the end of the day this was no longer an issue though as it had stretched a little.  The 3/4 sleeves were great for the office as I didn't overheat but the material was overall warm, I do find it is a little short for me but I did try it out with tights too previously.

My leather jacket is years old but is one of my style staples for the alternate look I generally go for, it was from Tesco but there are plenty of similar styles on the market now, Lovedrobe currently have my favourite leather look jacket in the last couple of years with beautiful embroidery. I think leather is definitely the way to go when its Halloween and you're trying to go semi subtle and can't quite rock a cape to work as it does add that edge. 

My boots are Sketchers, this was the first time I've worn them, they were comfortable from the off and I love all the things the brand is doing right now. These boots went great with my outfit as I could tuck my leggings (Primark special) into them and it went with my all black look. 

The devil horns were a little nod to the true Halloween spirit because you know, when in Rome (or wherever the devil may take you).

For my Halloween makeup look I used the Kat Von D Baking Kit, Urban Decay Moondust Pallette, Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, Soap & Glory Supercat eyeliner, Nyx Illuminator powder and Boohoo Red lip kit as well as my new Favourite for my brows: Nyx Tame & Frame.

For my eyes I used the shade element in the corner of my eye, fading out into lithium then using granite in the far corner and blending it into my crease. I then used specter along the edge of the granite line to give a bit of extra sparkle. I then blended this with the "look good feel better" smaller brush in the photo above. I then used my Supercat liner to create my flick and a thin line across my eyelid. I added shadow under my eyes in the order of the colours I used to match the lid and add some extra umph to my eyes for the Halloween look. I went with Element in the corners as this is a very reddish pink and goes with the devil idea. I love the Moondust pallette, I always use it when I want to create something really special, the colours in the pallete are spectacular but even better when the brush it wet. I use Specter all the time to add to different looks and Lithium is another favourite of mine along with Magnetic. I used an angle brush on my brows to create the shape with the Tame and Frame pomade, I'm really liking the natural look this is giving my brows, as if they are thicker than they actually are.
This lipstick is my new favourite red, its a Boohoo red with a lip liner that came with it, its perfect when you're the acting devil with all the skulls of the damned on your dress.

This is the full makeup look I opted for, dramatic eyes to make my hazel eyes stand out and a bold lipstick, I mostly let my dress and horns do the talking but think the makeup did its job to go with my look. 

What did you do for Halloween? I hope something more exciting than just work!
