Halloween is all about getting into character. It’s also a rare occasion when you can get into role playing or letting your inner child out. Although costumes are a great way to express yourself this Halloween, the power of makeup can’t be overlooked when it comes creating realistic characters. Sometimes even, makeup is all you need to create a different persona by using your face as a canvas. To help you get an idea of how you can impress or freak out your friends this Halloween, here are a couple of inspirational and easy DIY Halloween makeup looks.
We all known dolls can be scary, just think of Chuckie, but when they come to life is when they can freak you out. This spooky doll makeup look was created by Shannon O’Brien, a makeup artist, and blogger. She combined her doll makeup with a baby doll dress which is a suitable look for any Halloween party you plan to attend. If you’re skilled at using makeup, we’re sure you won’t have any trouble with creating this big-eyed, porcelain skin, and overdrawn eyebrows look. You can find Shannon’s tutorial for this Halloween look by clicking here.
The best look to pull off on Halloween is, of course, rotting skin, hollow eyes, and blood everywhere. If you’d like to recreate the living-dead look, you can find huge amounts of tips and tricks on looklikeazombie.com. For a basic zombie look, you’ll need to create super pale skin, sunken eyes (bags under eyes are a must here), and dark or bloody lips. You can also use prosthetics and contact lenses to pull off the recently-deceased vibe.
The trippy face also called face-in-face makeup is a popular Halloween look right now, mostly because it gives you the creeps. There are several versions of the look, but if you’re new to theatrical makeup, then we advise you start with the look created by YouTube makeup guru Promise. You essentially need to draw an extra face on one side of your face. To make the extra face look more realistic, we suggest using faux lashes, highlighter, and contouring for a 3D effect. If you have oily skin, we suggest being particularly prudent with oil control for this look to prevent your “other face” from sliding off. Use a primer, a matt foundation, and setting powder so your makeup stays put.
Fake wounds are all the rage on Halloween day. Stephanie Das gives a detailed explanation with pictures on how to create a fake wound using simple tools you probably have lying around your home. Blogger Ashleigh offers another wound look that you can recreate using simple makeup tools – no need to buy expensive Halloween makeup kits for this one. You can create these fake wounds on whatever part of your body you like, and the look goes well with the Zombie makeup or any other spooky, scary creature of your liking.
Look older than your years
Heidi Klum surprised everyone when she appeared as a wrinkly old lady for her 14th annual Halloween party in 2013. To put the years on your face, you only need to use basic makeup. Jordan Meyers offers a detailed explanation on this rarely-seen makeup look in leaf.com. For this look, you’ll need foundation, light brown eyeliner, white glue, and a dark brown eyeliner. Smirk, frown, and smile to see where your natural wrinkles appear and draw lines with the eyeliners along those wrinkles as explained in the above-mentioned tutorial. To create neck and chest wrinkles, we suggest using liquid latex.
If you’re not that into gore, this look provided to you by makeup artist Jamie Genevieve may be what you’re looking for. The makeup here is quite glamorous for a Halloween look and what is best of all – you get to use glitter. For this one, you’ll need a long-lasting foundation, a dark eyeliner you don’t care about that much, liquid eyeliner, white foundation or highlighter to create the illusion of bones. You’ll also use a lot of silver glitter around the eye socket and fake lashes for more glamor.
There are so many makeup ideas out there that you can use for inspiration this Halloween. What look you’ll recreate depends on your overall mood, but whatever creature, character, or fantasy you’re trying to emulate, make sure to use makeup with utmost precision. A lot of these looks can go from win to fail easily if you don’t do it right. The quality of the makeup you’re using can also make a big difference. Another thing to keep in mind is that no matter if you’re going for the simple doll makeup or the glamorous skeleton, you will have to spend a lot of makeup to make it work.
