F+F Glamourween: 'Urban Witch' Competition

I absolutely love Halloween and I have to admit that it's possibly one of my most favourite times of the year as I love dressing up and getting into the Halloween spirit. I was utterly thrilled when F+F at Tesco contacted me to ask if I'd like to take part in their 'Urban Witch' competition as I love Halloween and I most certainly love a good competition. I, along with 14 other UK fashion bloggers, were asked to create an 'Urban Witch' costume using F+F clothing and accessories, the outfit could have been anything from a little black dress to something a little more daring, the aim was to add 'fashion to frightening'. In order to create an 'Urban Witch' costume, F+F at Tesco kindly provided us with a £50 voucher to spend online and they also sent a little box of goodies which included makeup, sweets and other treats. 

If you'd like to see my 'Urban Witch' creation, please keep on reading.


When creating my outfit I wanted to go for something that was on trend but glamourous at the same time. I also decided against choosing a dress and a floppy black hat as that's what a typical witch wears and I wanted to be different from the norm. Instead I opted for these gorgeous tartan trousers as they're uber stylish and they can be worn as formal or casual wear, tartan is also a massive trend this A/W. I paired the trousers with a simple black shirt as I wanted the trousers to be the main focus of the outfit. I also added a fabulous pair black heels as they are chic and stylish, the gold toe cap also ties in with the gold detail on the trousers and shirt too. I also felt the shoes were a little halloweeney as the pointed toe gives a witchy feel. To finish off my outfit I added a stylish hat and a simple necklace. 
My intention was to be a stylish urban witch and I think I managed to pull it off.

As well as creating an 'Urban Witch' look, I also created a wearable halloween makeup look using the products Tesco sent me. I wanted to go for a green smokey eye and a dark lip as I thought this would suit the outfit best. If you want to know how to create the look, keep on reading. 


How To:
Face:
  1. Apply foundation to the skin, make sure you work from the centre of the face as you want your foundation to be even.  
  2. Apply concealer if needed. 
  3. Set your foundation with a powder, this can be loose or pressed.
  4. Using a angled brush and a sculpting powder, contour your cheekbones. You may want to contour your nose, jawline, forehead and temples too. 
  5. Apply a small amount of blush to the apples of the cheeks. 
Eyes:
  1. Apply a dark green cream eyeshadow to the eyelid and blend upwards and outwards using a blending brush. For an intense look, repeat this step twice. 
  2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, pat a small amount of black pigment onto the eyelid, again blend upwards and outwards using a blending brush. 
  3. Using a clean blending brush and a soft brown eyeshadow, blend out the edges. This will give a softer finish. 
  4. If you want to add a bit of glamour, pat a small amount of glitter onto the centre of the eyelid using a flat eyeshadow brush.
  5. Using an angled eyeliner brush and gel eyeliner, create a flick and line the top lash line.
  6. Using a black kohl pencil, line the top and bottom waterline. 
  7. Add a small amount of the soft brown eyeshadow to the bottom lash line and smudge with a smudge brush. 
  8. Apply mascara and eyelashes. 
Lips:
  1. Line lips with a black kohl pencil.
  2. Add a small amount of black lipstick to the outer part of the lips. 
  3. Add a small amount of red lipstick to the inner/middle part of the lips.
