Here is a really simple Halloween look I did today inspired by the character Alex DeLarge in the movie A Clockwork Orange. It is really quick and simple if you don’t have enough time to get together a look for Halloween. In addition, most of these items are probably already in your makeup kit. It is also a “budget” look because you don’t need a lot of products. For the most basic look all you need is nude colour eyeshadow, black liner, mascara, false lashes and lipstick/lipgloss. Don’t be afraid to get the longest and thickest pair of false lashes you can find, it is Halloween after all, go for the drama! If you have time, try a more colourful eye or even smokey for this look and add your own twist to it. I am just showing the bare basics of this character. If I have time I would do another FOTD of Alex DeLarge that is more dramatic and girly.
*Additional tip: For the false lashes I recommend getting two pairs with one longer and thicker than the other. Use the longest one for the upper lash line and the shorter one for the lower lash line. As you can see in the pictures below I use the same size lashes for both upper and lower lash lines, but because of the shape of the eye, the upper lashes look significantly shorter than the lower lashes.
