The makeup for Halloween should be intimidating and ingenious! There is enough time before the holiday so you can choose an interesting and bright image. Our Halloween make up guide will help you!
Any celebration or party is a reason to try on an unusual image for yourself. But if, for example, a New Year or wedding makeup still has its own unspoken rules, the makeup for Halloween can be anything: eccentric, frightening or absolutely insane. On Halloween we all feel a little bit like children - and you shouldn’t suppress this feeling. Be bold! And we will tell you how to extract the practical benefits from this mood.
How to do Halloween makeup by yourself?
When creating a complex make-up on Halloween, they often resort to the help of a professional make-up. But it’s not necessary to buy a dozen of special pigments for the sake of one image, which will just on the shelves afterwards. You can make an ingenious Halloween makeup using ordinary makeup products. Learn more about which ones you need in this section.
What do you need to create makeup for Halloween? 5 products
Mascara, which will help to create the effect of spider paws, persistent lipstick of a blood-red shade to imitate bruises and a black liner, painting “gloomy” details are the products that you will surely find in any cosmetic bag. What else can be useful for a thematic Halloween make-up?
1. Palette of shadows of unusual shades
If you use only nude shadows and allow yourself textures with a shimmer only during holidays, it's time to revise your habits. A pallet with bright pink, purple and yellow shadows is not only useful for creating a remarkable image for Halloween, but it can also push you to make-up experiments in everyday life. With its help, you can create, for example, fashionable eye makeup in red or pink tones. By the way, the Smokey Eyes palette will also come in handy - what kind of Halloween without black shadows?
It will be useful if you want to create not a scary, but a romantic image for Halloween. Become a forest nymph, a mermaid or a fairy for one night. Adding a bit of glitter to the image is the easiest way to make the makeup festive, so don't take the jar away: New Year is just around the corner.
We are not tired of singing the odes to this magic make-up tool - and we will not stop until the base for the makeup is in every cosmetic bag. Use primers for the face and for the eyelids so that your Halloween makeup scares everyone with its credibility, and not by the fact that it became ugly an hour after the party started.
Raised "devilish" arrows, freckles like Pippi Longstocking - you can draw this with eyeliner, which will be found in most beauty brands (look at the versions from the collections YSL, NYX Professional Makeup and Maybelline). And this tool will definitely not be lying in a cosmetic bag when the Halloween is over. In everyday life you can draw trendy bright arrows for the eyelids with a colored eyeliner.
5. A set of brushes and sponge
Still not got a set of good makeup brushes? A Halloween party is an excellent opportunity to do this important thing that you have been postponing for a long time. Check out our detailed beauty dossier on makeup brushes to create your own ideal base set.
5 Halloween Makeup Tips
Remember these simple make-up tricks that will be useful for creating truly scary images for Halloween.
1.If you still cover your face with a thick layer of makeup or paint, you should “protect” some areas. Apply a little petroleum jelly on your eyebrows and hair roots so that they do not stain.
2. Usually we do our best to hide the bruises under the eyes, but for Halloween sometimes the opposite is required. To create dark circles around the eyes no worse than that of Beatlejus, apply black and gray or dark purple shadows, mixed with red, to the area around the eyes with a flat brush, and then use a sponge soaked in water.
3. Mix the nude lipstick with purple shadows and apply the resulting composition to the lips so that they look very chapped.
4. Creating of artificial blood from improvised means is simple too: mix a cream burgundy lipstick with a small amount of a liquid black liner and a transparent lip gloss. This composition cannot be visually distinguished from real blood!
Type "blood" on the fluffy brush from the artificial nap and spray it sloppy on the face: you get the image from the movie "American Psycho".
5.To simulate the dropped teeth, wipe the two front ones with an alcohol-containing remedy, dry them with a paper towel and apply a water-resistant gel liner of black color on them. Let it dry properly.
10 ideas for easy and simple Halloween makeup
Before you start discussing the really complex - and scary! - images, we offer you to see a selection of make-up solutions that will help to create an interesting thematic makeup without any extra effort.
1. The last kiss
Paint your lips with a rich tone cream that is lighter in color than your skin. Cut a lip-shaped figure out of thick paper, attach it to your cheek and draw around the contour with a strong pencil. Fill the empty space with durable matte lipstick. Done!
2. The Queen of Disco
Bright shadows with a strong shimmer, applied to the eyebrows, and a juicy lip gloss will make you the queen of the dance floor.
3. Fake freckles
One of the most fashionable trends of recent years is bright freckles, which can be “worn” not only in the sunny season: this beauty-device is also useful for Halloween. Put a little crumbly glitter on the face, mark the freckles with a pencil (we showed here how to do it) or draw hearts instead of the usual points like in the picture.
The Barbie image is the last thing you think about when it comes to Halloween. But why not try on the puppet image for the sake of diversity? Make up your lips with bright pink glossy lipstick, apply purple shadows to your eyes and blend them into a haze (for example, as in this video). Paint the classic arrow with black eyeliner and thickly paint the eyelashes with mascara.
5. Snow Queen
Blend the shadows with a bronze tint under the lower eyelids, they also emphasize the inner corners of the eyes. Paint your lips with red-brick lipstick, add a little golden shine to them (to create a similar lip makeup, see our photo instruction). Cover the whole face generously with shining crumbly glitter, fix the makeup with a fixing spray.
6. The victim of the surgeon
Such an ironic make-up image is available even to those who find mascara difficult to use. Mark the dotted lines with the pencil for the eyelids and then circle them with a resistant black liner. Cover your lips with matte red lipstick. Of course, this makeup looks spectacular with clear arrows, but you can do it without them.
7. A message to the world
The author of this image calls everyone to observe silence, but you can write your own appeal on a fixed eyelid. Don't worry if the inscription is not very smooth, the main thing is to write it so that it is easy to read.
The superhero costume is traditionally one of the most popular at Halloween parties. Why not experiment with makeup? Such a bright version of the “superhero mask” will surely attract everyone’s attention!
9. David Bowie
Here you can see another interesting option for applying the color eyeliner. To draw David Bowie's signature zipper on your face, use paper tape. With its help, designate the boundaries of the picture, and then the matter is small.
10. Smeared lipstick
Halloween is a holiday during which you need to overcome your fears. What are the girls most afraid of? Right, a smeared lipstick. It's time to see this fear in the face!
Trick or treating! Boo!
