Just in Time for Halloween, ‘Last Night in Soho’ Has All the Beauty Inspiration You Need

In contrast, there’s the modern (and latter-day) character of Eloise, played by Mckenzie. “Her character’s journey shows a fresh young hopeful with a nod to Breakfast at Tiffany’s to start,” says Georgiou, who enhanced Mckenzie’s natural complexion with YSL Beauty’s Touche Éclat All-In-One Glow tinted moisturizer, soft washings of earthy color from a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow palette, and rimmings of dark Dessin du Regard eye pencil.

But while her bright-eyed beginnings are worth channeling for every day, amid spooky season, it’s all about her character’s scene-stealing Halloween night look, featuring a paled-out complexion, a smoky, gaze-eclipsing mask of black eye pigment, and a cascade of damp, lived-in waves. According to Georgiou, the makeup riffed on an image of Daryl Hannah from the 1980s (perhaps in costume as Blade Runner’s Pris) that she and Wright found.

“The character goes through a lot on Halloween night, and this had to show in the makeup and hair look,” explains Georgiou, who created the two-toned veil with a Le Maquillage Pro Fard cream palette and achieved the grungy, melted effect by spraying down the makeup so it would run down the cheeks organically. “She’s walked through the pouring rain, and never really gets the chance to pull herself together after that night,” she says. “It helped to show her mental state—that she isn’t really cleaned off and the remains of the night stay with her.”

Whether you want to go glamorously referential, or punkishly dark and alluring, Last Night in Soho is a dark joy ride rife with mood board-worthy beauty looks—just toss on a white vinyl trench coat and go. “It’s always fun to see people emulate the looks from movies that have inspired them for Halloween,” says Georgiou. “Our film has been released just in time for that—hoping to see a few Sandies and Eloises out there!”
