Therefore, have a nosey at these stunning makeup looks for Halloween and determine who you want to be this year!
Sugar Skull Makeup for Halloween
Perhaps one of the most traditional, yet totally creative and cool Halloween makeup looks is the sugar skull makeup. The best thing about sugar skull makeup is that there is no limit in fantasy. You just have to take your favorite colors and try to create a unique look.
To do a sugar skull makeup, you need to first apply a moisturizer or a makeup base on your fresh face. Then apply a high definition foundation, using more product than usually. Blend it well, making sure you apply a little bit of the product on your neck too for a uniform look. Then, you should apply white greasepaint all over your face. You can combine it with some other color too, depending on the look you want to create.
Apply a white powder over this, as you are done. Emphasize your cheekbones with the color you like. Start drawing fake eyes and paint them in your favorite colors. Apply the lipstick going out your lips line for a dramatic look. Start drawing lines all around your lips and on them. You may draw interesting patterns on your face or experiment with rhinestones for a glam look.
Geisha Makeup for Halloween
Why not turn yourself into an Asian woman on this day, doing a Geisha makeup? The most important tip here to stick to is using white greasepaint all over you face. Then you need to draw fake eyebrows, either rounded or edgy and straight. Create an extra-small pout with a red or crimson shade (you may try any other color you like). You can apply false eyelashes and some eyeshadow colors for a more dramatic look. Finally, don’t forget about a creative updo and your high-end shiny kimono!
Indian Makeup for Halloween
If you love the east and want to try something other than the Geisha look, you can be an Indian woman! Here, you have to options: either become a traditional American Indian or if you love more eye-catching looks, turn yourself into a woman from Delhi! For the first look, you simply have to create a luscious makeup with winged eyeliner and red lips and get a feathered headband! As for the second Indian makeup look, you should be as daring as possible, applying bright, shimmering eyeshadow hues, sculpting your face perfectly and using a bright lipstick. Don’t forget about a bindi – the red small dot applied on the forehead!
Forest Fairy Makeup for Halloween
If you give more preference to the good rather than the evil, you may sport the image of a forest fairy on this holiday. Take bright eyeshadow tones and smudge all your eyes with them, going out of your lid lines and creating kind of a smokey look. You can even sculpt your face with bright eyeshadows. Wear some dramatic falsies and don’t forget about extra-voluminous hair accessorized with flowers, butterflies and leaves!
Other Halloween makeup ideas that may appeal to you include the demon makeup look with heavily emphasized black eyes and the cruel fairytale witch look, also the iron queen makeup, the creepy doll makeup or the classic candy corn makeup look! Options are endless, yet the makeup rules are always the same: creativity takes the lead and makeup rules are walked over! Simply experiment with dramatic false eyelashes and colorful contact lenses, watercolors on your lids and dark lipstick shades, creative eyeliners, edgy nail art designs and, of course, colorful wigs and spectacular Halloween costumes! Be daring, edgy and creative on this day, as hardly will you have this chance the rest 364-365 days of the year!
