With Halloween fast approaching, you must have probably prepared your party menu and trick or treat goodies for the kids and already bought some decors. But have you decided on who you are going to be this year? Sure you have been red riding hood, the big bad wolf, vampire, and even zombie. Your little one probably wants to be Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Kristoff, or even Olaf this year which pretty much leaves you with nothing.
Do not think about dressing up as Hello Kitty just yet because we might have some great Halloween makeup ideas that can make you stand out in your upcoming party without having to spend exaggeratedly.
You can easily pull this Halloween makeup look by going through your makeup stash. Find some false eyelashes, foundation, smudge-free eyeliner, brown blush for contouring, and of course, some white makeup.
Exaggerate your eyes by drawing around it to make it look bigger. Put the white makeup carefully just above your eyebrows and just below the eyelashes. The nose must be color white as well to show the contrast to the black color right at the tip of the nose to recreate the deer’s nose.
Lastly, let your hair down, wear some elastic band and put some twigs to achieve the antlers. If your partner is willing, let him dress up as a hunter or perhaps a stag that he is and you will be the hottest pair in the upcoming Halloween party.
A toy soldier is a good example that can easily be achieved. You need lots of eyeliner, eyebrow powder, false lashes, mascara, foundation, white makeup and red blush.
The key here is to make your face as flawlessly white as it can be. Remember how most dolls’ faces look like porcelain?
Achieve that and start doing your heavy eye makeup in gray or black. You also need to have the perfect red lipstick and some red blush as well. A tip here is that you can simply use your red lipstick as a blush.
Create a hinged look by drawing a line from the corners of the mouth downwards. This Halloween makeup look recreates a talking doll or a mannequin.
Pop Art Makeup Look
If you want something unique this year, go for the pop art makeup look. For this makeup look, you just need some really good foundation, tinted blush, metallic eye shadow, and some red or pale lipstick.
Simply apply the foundation, let it set, and then make small dots all around the face. There are a lot of great inspirations for this around the internet. Best part is that you do not have to buy a costume. Dig some old clothes in your closet and you are good to go. A yellow wig will also look good or you can simply spray your hair with some washable yellow hair dye.
Halloween parties do not always have to rely on costumes alone. More often than not, it is the Halloween makeup that does the trick.
