Neutral Eye Set
Get this for those who prefer a safe and natural everday look or teens who don't want such bold make-up. For this set, include three eyeshadows: a neutral brown shade for the lid, a dark brown shade for the crease and lower lashline, and, a beige colour for the brow bone. If u want to include a mascara and eyeliner, go for brown instead of black. For a lipstick or/and lipgloss, get a matte light pink one. Instead of a blush, go for a matte bronzer.
Smoky Eye Set
The smoky eye is and will continue to be a trend. So, get this for those who are always in trend or those who prefer a more daring look for their eyes. For eyeshadows, go for smoky colours. I think that's pretty obvious. You can get the basic colours such as black, grey or silver. If the receipient of this gift prefers bright colours, go for navy blue, royal purple or other bright smoky colours. Get a black liquid eyeliner and mascara to complement the eyeshadows. For a lipstick or/and lipgloss, get a beige or a super neutral one to balance out the smoky eye.
For fans of eyeliners, get them an eyeliner set. Include the basic black and brown as well as daring and fun colours such as pink, purple and blue. For those who prefer something convenient and quick, get them pencil liners. For those who prefer to spent time for an outstanding look, get them gel or liquid liners. If u r getting gel liners, include a liner brush.
This one is for those who are obsessed with big, thick and long dramatic lashes. Get them an eyelash curler, an eyelash primer, a thickening mascara and a voluminizing mascara so they can achieve the maximum result for their lashes. Don't forget to add a spoolie brush so they can define their lashes and get rid of any clumps on their pretty lashes.
For those who are all about the lips, get this set. Include the basic lipstick and lipgloss. Add in other essentials such as a lip scrub to exfoliate the lips for smooth lips, a lip moisturizer to ensure the lips doesn't get dry, a lip liner to make sure the receipient's lips doesn't 'bleed'. If u r wondering what lip colour to get, just go for the basic pink to stay safe.

This look is highly requested this year for some reason. Pair this look with an apple to get the maximum result:) And, don't forget to check out the hair tutorial.
Michael Jackson Look
This look is dead on! Pay tribute to the King of Pop with this look:)
Who doesn't love the Disney Princesses? For some reason, Snow White is quite popular this year. Stand out from the crowd with this Princess Jasmine look.
The creator named it a 'Fallen Angel' look but i'm not very sure what that means so i'll just stick to Dark Fairy. I just love what she did at the sides of the eyes.
Using sequins to represent the scales of a mermaid is genious! That's not the only thing that makes this look outstanding. Check it out and u'll know why i like it so much.
This seductive vampire look is different from all the other vampire looks on Youtube. Its a little less dramatic and doesn't take much effort and products.
Who doesn't love Barbie? This is just one of the countless Barbie look tutorials on Youtube. I wouldn't say its the best one but its a good one.

Wanna look sexy and pretty for Halloween instead of scary and frightening. Then, this is the look for u.
This tutorial doesn't only teach u how to look like Sailor Moon. It almost teaches u to look animated! Now, that's cool.
With the spiders, webs and green colour, its no doubt that this represents a wicked witch. This dramatic look is definitely only for Halloween.
Although the creator named it a 'Dying Vampire' look. I think its more of a zombie look. This is great if u want a frightening look.
Thanks for reading and what were u for Halloween?
