Halloween Makeup Tips
is a perfect time to go all out on your makeup. You can really experiment
and no feel self conscious about trying a new and daring look. Here are
some cute ideas for the holiday including spider web eyes, vampire makeup,
mummy, zombie and super hero makeup:
Spider web eyeshadow
Here's a cute look for a Halloween
party! Do a smoky eye and then draw on webs with your eyeliner. Use a black
eyeliner on your lower lid as well. Finish off with a thick
coat of mascara or false eyelashes!
You can also draw the webs
out onto your forehead and cheeks. Use THICK eyelashes to almost make your
lashes look like furry spiders themselves. You can also draw a small
spider onto your face to really give arachnophobics the creeps.
Vampire Makeup Tips
|If you have a
tiny vampire in your house, you can make him or her rule the night with
their look. Start with a pale base. Be sure to go down the neck and the
ears. Use a dark pencil, black or brown depending on the hair color
of your vampire, to add a widow's peak. If you color the hair black using
a can of temporary hair color, then use a black pencil for the widow's
peak. For the eyes, use dark eyeliner to make an extended or exaggerated
cat-eye look. Add smoky shadows and highlight the brow with a dark red
eyeshadow that will match the lips. For the lips, use a blood red
Draw on white "fangs" with
a pencil and outline them with a black eyeliner or black pencil.
This look will actually work well for a boy or a girl, although I would
use a little less eyeliner on a boy.
Mummy Makeup Tips
|Don't get stuck in "black"
mode just because you think you need wrinkles. Mummies are quite yellowed
since they are aged. Use a lot of brown eyeshadow or brown tinted
face paint to sink the eyes.
Use a brown eyeliner to add
wrinkles. The wrinkles will look more authentic if you ask your subject
to wrinkle his face and then draw in the lines along the natural places
on the face that have creases. In other words, accentuate the creases that
are already there.
Black tooth wax finishes
the look, and really changes your appearance. This tooth wax is cheap
(usually less than $1) and is easy to use. Dry your teeth with a napkin
then smear it on. It will stay on until you wipe it off as long as you
don't eat. It will not stain your teeth, so don't worry!
Zombie Makeup Tips - How
to do makeup like a Zombie
don't get stuck thinking you can only use black makeup to make shadows
for a zombie. Use purple and red underneath your eyes to start. Then go
for greens, greys and even blue for bruising. Since you are trying to look
like the living dead, do not start your look with your usual eyeliner and
mascara. You would be surprised how sickly you can appear when you
don't have your usual eye makeup! You might feel naked without it, but
trush me, a good zombie look does not include eyes that "pop". Instead,
your eyes should sink back into your head. And of course no
zombie look is complete without a lot of fake blood.
