Halloween Glamour-how to look gorgeous not goulish

October may be the month of all things spooky but perhaps you don't fancy getting fake blood on your beautiful dress or full on horror make up slightly freaks you out. Don't worry there are plenty of ways you can introduce some spooky glamour into your look this month-no plastic fangs required.

Spellbinding make up
As the nights draw in darker eyeshadows and dramatic lip colours no longer look out of place. Ditch the shimmer for porcelain complexions and embrace smoky eyes and plum lips. You are sure to look like a complete vamp, not  a vampire.
Gothic drama does have to look ghastly

Its all about the accessories
You can embrace all things creepy without wearing a pointy hat. My Irregular Choice Miaow boots are a great example of how to incorporate some black magic chic into your wardrobe. Handbags are also a fairly inexpensive way to infuse some Halloween styling into an existing outfit.

Hair pretties which are anything but hair-raising
I love to put accessories in my hair. Flowers, scarfs, fasinators, its amazing how a fairly small clip or headband can totally change how an outfit looks. Halloween is a great excuse to indulge this side of things and is a lovely way to add a touch of fantasy to an otherwise fairly normal outfit. 

Glittery ears-the perfect accessory for my LBD
My personal favourites at this time of year are glittery cat ears and I have loads of pairs, mostly from Crown and Glory . Its all about channelling sexy cat vibes without painting on whiskers.

 Cute Spook
If dark high drama isn't your cup of blood, or you aren't going anywhere fitting for a full on queen of the night look then simply have fun. Motif jumpers, spider print tights or pumpkin print skirts offer a light hearted nod to the celebration of all things magical.

Cutie not spooky
 I have a ghost jumper which I brought from Asda a few years ago and it looks great with a tartan skirt and leggings. Its Halloween without the scary which is sometimes just the ticket (and perfect for the school run)

Ghost elbow patch jumper
Halloween Nail Art
If I get invited to  a party at Halloween then I am all about the Halloween themed nail art.Even if my outfit isn't particularly themed by having my nails done I feel its the finishing touch, 
Horrifyingly cool
Check out the great tutorial my friend Lilly has done for Skull nails-by only featuring it on the ring finger its spooky but dainty, or if you fancy a ghoul on every digit check out this step by step guide by the very clever Lisa Duffy
