Halloween is almost upon us, and we want to be ready to rule the streets on this eeriest of nights. To that end we recruited Ivy, a make-up artist with cosmetic brand Urban Decay, to create a stunning devil makeover that will turn eyes and stop hearts.

We start off with a rough sketch of what we want, but in the course of building the look, it evolves into a darker and sultry version, with plenty of pinks, reds and browns around the cheeks and eyes.

Following Ivy’s directions – and working with her on Sophia's make-up – I mirror her application of make-up on one side of Sophia's face on the opposite side, down to the smallest detail, to make sure we get the look right.

As with all makeovers, we start with the eyes. First the primer goes on, followed by a thick layer of eye shadow, and lots of blending, ending with heavy eyeliner and fluffy fake lashes for a stunning result: Sophia’s eyes looked dark, hooded, and mysterious.

Next up: the lips. What better colours to use for Halloween than red for the base, and a smudge of black for a bit of edginess?

For the final flourish, dark brown blush and glitter are dusted on to the sides of Sophia’s face, adding depth and a seductive shine.

Voilà! The makeover is gorgeous on Sophia, and easily achieved with just a few products, including the incredibly versatile Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette, which did triple duty on the eyes, cheeks and forehead.
