Halloween How-To: Cleopatra's Makeup

Cleopatra is one of the original beauty divas, and when Fab showed me her costume ideas for the legendary Egyptian Pharaoh, I just had to chime in with some dramatic makeup tips to complete this dazzling style.

With a life more intense than every episode of The Hills combined, this Bella Donna's look correlates rather nicely with several Fall 2008 trends: winged-out eyeliner, ample brows, hints of metallic, and boldly colored shadows.

For some suggestions on how to apply Cleopatra's makeup, check out some of my tips (along with a fun widget) below, following the picture to your right as a guide:

  • Complexion — Choose a matte foundation for a flawless finish.
  • Eyes — Using a black eyebrow pencil, fill in brows with a high arch. Heavily line eyes with a creamy black liner, extending far past your outer corners. Use a deeply pigmented green or bluish-green shadow to fill in from lash line to brow and inner corner to outer corner. Glue on shimmery false lashes to complete.
  • Blush — For a bright glow, sweep a peachy shade across your cheeks.
  • Lips — With all the drama focused on the eyes, keep the lips semi-matte to matte in a nude or peach shade.
