A celebrity makeup artist shows Shine Latina exclusively how to recreate one of the vampy looks from the upcoming "Twilight" movie, "Breaking Dawn Part 2"How to create the sexy vampire makeup look.
Latin beauty expert Marco Ochoa was inspired by Carmen Denali, a Twilight saga character played by Argentinean actress Mia Maestro, to create a sexy and modern vampire look. "I chose Carmen as an example, as she has a hint of an olive tone to her fair complexion. Her bold eyes and lips are in trend this season," says Ochoa, who believes this is a look that will work well for those wanting special makeup during the fall and winter season.
Step 1 - Foundation and Contour
Since vampires are known for having a pale, almost chalky complexion, use a base that's at least 2-3 shades lighter than your normal skin tone. Every product you use should leave a matte finish.
Expert Tip: Contouring is a very important step when creating a vampire look. It allows you to accentuate certain features such as temples and cheekbones. It is also very important to build color when contouring; never apply too much at once.

Step 2 - Smoky Eye
Blending the shadows well is key to a flawless smoky eye effect. Make sure to pencil the inner rims of the eyes.
Expert tip: When creating a smoky eye for a vampire look, go for tones such as dark plum, maroon, grey, or black.
Step 3 - Dark Eyebrows
Brows are very important when creating a vampire look. You can change the expression or character of your vampire simply by the way you choose to define your brows.
Expert tip: Go for a dark brown or raven color when filling in brows.
Step 4 - Dark Lips
Burgundy, plum, and berry color stains are all in for this season. Pick any of these when trying to go for that ark vampy look.
