Halloween Makeup Ideas | 10 Instagram Looks To Follow
Are you ready for the ultimate Halloween party with friends? You will be with these beautiful Halloween makeup ideas! But where do you exactly find the inspiration you need? Look no further as everything is just on Instagram! From animal-inspired to downright gross and scary, these Halloween face makeup ideas will definitely make you an instant Instagram star this season.
1. Fun Fawn Halloween Makeup
Rejoice, cosplay fans! This is one of the best Halloween makeup ideas if you don’t want to be cutesy instead of downright scary. It’s so soft and subtle and lets you play with various dark shades of your eyeshadow (although you can also use some face paint). And look at those adorable white dots! How cute are they?
2. Broken Doll Halloween Makeup
We escalated fast! This is one of the scary Halloween makeup ideas you should try at least once. One of the advantages of wearing the broken porcelain doll look is it is not as common as the others, and it’s quick to do. Just emphasize the blush and the red lipstick and then create irregular-patterned black spots as if your face is broken. To make it even creepier, use white face paint.
3. Pop Art Halloween Makeup
Do you love comic book art makeup? If you can’t find the best time to use your talent in creating a comic book- inspired look, this is the moment to show it off! For a great tutorial, go here. To complete the look and make the entire Halloween ensemble fun, paint your nails with these.
4. Forest Goddess Halloween Makeup
Being a forest goddess for a day (or night) may look difficult, but it’s not. In fact, I vote this as one of the easiest Halloween face makeup ideas you can do. With this image as your inspiration, get a lot of green body paint and a few browns to give the illusion as if you’re covered with soil. Then enhance the overall look with some floral accessories and this mesmerizing bloom lip.
5. Killer Clown Halloween Makeup
A lot of people don’t like clowns, which makes it one of the ideal Halloween makeup ideas! There are many looks you can do, including a Harley Quinn-inspired killer clown makeup or a sweet-looking clown (complete with lollies). I like this one the best as you can use regular makeup such as cheek and lip stains, as well as black eyeshadows.
6. Mermaid Halloween Makeup
Dreaming of achieving your favorite Disney princess’ look on Halloween? It’s just so hard to let go of your childhood fantasy, so why not make it happen? But this time you’re going to make it macabre. To recreate the scales effect, you can use a fishnet stocking or draw it individually with a black brow pencil. You can also add gills and finish the look with a deep-blue lipstick.
7. Lion Halloween Makeup
Roar! If you’re obsessed with felines (seriously, who can resist cats?), this is one of the Halloween makeup ideas that work well with your character and your enthusiasm for kitties! For a fun makeup tutorial, try this.
8. Unicorn Halloween Makeup
Don’t just be an animal this Halloween. Be the unicorn! The greatest challenge in this look will be putting the horn. This look requires a face mold and a cast, which takes a few hours to harden. Then you attach the cast to your face with a skin glue. If you want something easier, just buy a unicorn headband. To complete the look, add some glitters (make that a lot!) and use bright pastel colors for your makeup.
9. Day of the Dead Halloween Makeup
Day of the Death princess wannabe? You won’t just leave your guests horrified but also awed with this makeup look that’s just perfect for a lady who beautifully rose from the grave. Need a tutorial? Check this out!
10. Bunny Halloween Makeup
Is it still Easter? No, it’s already the Halloween, but that doesn’t mean you can already put your bunny look to rest. This face makeup idea lets you maximize your pink and peach makeup, which are gorgeous colors by the way, and wear this cute bunny ear headbands!
