Halloween Makeup Look

Having never attempted my own halloween makeup before, I thought I would give it a go.  Last year I posted about doing my Sister’s halloween makeup (Sarah’s Halloween Cross-fit Training Makeup!) for her Gym session and also my Son’s School disco look (Halloween makeup!) but I hadn’t tried it on myself before or tried any kind of detailed look…..fast forward to last week and I thought I would give it a go!

I started with a base of White Snazaroo face paint…this was pretty tough to work with as it’s quite a dry product but built up over a few layers with a sponge and topped with a white face powder from Claire’s Accessories it worked out fine.

Next I used my Urban Decay eyeliner 24/7 eyeliner pencil in ‘Stag’ to draw a circle around each eye  (also applied to my lower waterline) and then filled them in with a mix of two purple shades of eyeshadow from the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette, ‘Delirious’ and ‘Sketch’.

I then took my Razor Sharp Eyeliner ‘Perversion’ and drew semi-circles around the bigger black circle and then filled them in with ‘Blindsided’, again from the Full Spectrum Palette.  This was mixed with a bit of Mac Fix+ to give it more of a pop of colour.  The Elf cosmetics glitter was then lightly applied over the top of each of the blue semi-circles.  Using the same eyeliner I drew a little pattern on my chin and coloured this in using the ‘Gossip’ and ‘Blindsided’ eyeshadow shades.

Using a black eyeshadow I carved a contour line under my cheekbones and down to create more of a skull shadow.  This was then added to by the ‘Sketch’ purple shade just below.  I continued to contour around my temples and across my forehead, going down the centre of my forehead, again to create the skull illusion.  This turned into a mix of the black and purple shades but seemed to work quite well!!

For the nose, I outlined an ‘M’ shape with my Razor Sharp eyeliner and then filled it in with the Black Snazaroo face paint.  This one was quite easy to work with in comparison to the white!


Lips were made white with the NYX jumbo pencil and I then pencilled an outline of where I wanted the black lines to be with my 24/7 pencil, followed by the Razor Sharp eyeliner to define the lines better.  This was then topped with a tiny dab of Elf Glitter.

To complete the look, I applied some Maybelline Falsies Push Up Angel mascara and false lashes from Accessorize and that’s it!

Here’s the finished look, complete with big flower for Day of the Dead effect……which I have to admit, turned out a lot better than I thought it would!! Haha!!

    I wouldn’t have thought the white face paint would be difficult to work with but I guess it has to look pretty opaque. You did really well with this look – I like how the nose and cheek hollows turned out – really gives you the skeletal appearance!

      Thank you!! It’s the first time I’ve ever tried something like this so it’s great to have feedback! Yeah the white was really tough to work with which I was surprised about given it’s the colour I’d guess is used a lot as a base colour for all over the face no matter what look you’re doing! I think I expected it to be smoother! Maybe there’s a trick I need to learn! 😛 xx
