Halloween is just around the corner, and despite the current situation in the world, we can have some fun. For this reason, I want to show you two makeup ideas for Halloween.
Around this time, we began to see the characteristic Halloween decoration everywhere. And also, we began to see the incredible and elaborate makeup styles of artists, YouTubers, and celebrities.
Some styles are easier than others that require a lot more elaboration. In today’s post, I am going to show you a couple of simple makeup looks that I could find on the web.
I consider that these styles do not require many products. In the same way, its preparation time will not be very long, and you will not have to be an expert in the use of makeup.
Taking into account the current situation, I recommend that you bring all the attention to your eyes. In this way, you can wear a mask without hiding all your makeup. You can even use a themed face mask that is consistent with your makeup and thus attract more attention.
The looks that I am going to describe are the following: La Catrina and a vampire.
The Catrina is one of the most important symbols of the famous Día de Los Muertos celebrated in Mexico. This look is super usual on Halloween, and it is no wonder. Besides being very eye-catching, it is beautiful and easy to do.
You will only need white and red face paint and black eyeliner. If you do not have face paints, you can do the following: In the case of the white one, you can use your regular foundation, or if you have another one, one or two shades lighter than your skin tone, it will also work for you.
If you are missing the red paint, you can use a red eyeliner, or you can use a red shadow. To make the eyeshadow creamy, you can scrape some of the powder off and put it in a separate container, and add artificial tears or some setting spray. This technique will allow you to have a liquid shadow that you can use as a liner.
Keep in mind that if you don’t like the red tone, you can use whatever you want.
Now let’s talk about how to do this makeup. As I mentioned before, due to the current situation, it is most likely that if you go out, you will have to do it with a mask. For this reason, I recommend that you use a white face mask for this look. You can draw the mouth in this one and paint the part of the nose with a black marker.
If you are going to make up your face anyway, let’s start by applying the white paint or the foundation. Apply it all over the face and take it up to the neck.
Once you finish with the cream products, you must seal them with a translucent powder. It does not matter if it is the foundation or the face paint: you must lock it so that it does not move towards the expression lines.
Subsequently, apply a subtly pink blush on your cheeks.
Now let’s start with the eyes. The first thing to do is to draw a circle around the entire eye area with the black eyeliner. This circle should reach just above your eyebrow and should also cover your dark circles.
Once you have the circle drawn, you can fill in with the same pencil, black face paint, or black eyeliner. Once you finish applying any of the products that I mentioned, you must seal them with black shadow. I recommend that it be matte.
You can then apply the black pencil on the water lines of the eyes, above and below. This will make the look more dramatic.
And the fun part is coming, with the red paint you are going to start making small semicircles around the black circle.
Once you’ve finished them and the red paint is dry, draw the edge of each semicircle with black eyeliner and paint each one a dot in the middle.
And that’s it. If you want, you can add other details on the forehead or on the cheeks. And if you decided not to wear a mask, with a black pencil, you can draw the smile and the nose of the catrina.
This makeup is done in a similar way to the catrina. However, it is a little simpler.
The first thing we are going to do is skin. We will then start with the primer, the base, the concealer, and the powder. If you have a foundation one or two shades lighter than your skin tone, it will be perfect.
Then we are going to apply a little contour to give some dimension to the face. Apply it under the cheekbones and under the jaw. Also, wear it on your forehead just next to the hairline and on the edges of the nose. You don’t need to apply blush.
Later I recommend that you do the eyebrows. You can use the brow products that you generally use, although if you have a darker pencil or pomade, they can help.
Now let’s start with the eyes. For this step, the first thing you should do is apply primer or concealer to the entire eyelid.
Then, use a black eyeliner to draw a line from the tear duct to the outer corner of the eyelid, beyond the eyebrow. Just as you see in the picture. If you look closely, you’ll notice that you can wear the eyeliner on the lower eyelid as well, and you can draw a new corner on the inside part of the eye.
Subsequently, apply a little black pencil on the upper and lower water lines. To finish the eyes, I recommend that you apply several coats of mascara or use false eyelashes.
Finish the look with an apple red lipstick. If you are going to use a mask, you can draw in it some lips with a red marker.
Don’t forget that these dates are for fun. No matter what makeup you wear, the essential thing is to have a good time. Even if you do not plan to leave the house, have something fun on this date.
If you have children, and where you live, it is not allowed to go out, you can have a pleasant time with your family. You can dress up as a family, and each of you can hide in a room for the children to knock on each door and receive candies. You can also do a Halloween movie marathon, be it horror or children’s movies.
Either way, enjoy this date. It is one of the few where we can be children again. Also, I hope you liked the looks. If you have any opinion or want to see more Halloween ideas, you can tell me in the comments below.
