By the time my kids are done getting ready for Halloween, the idea of getting gussied up myself just feels exhausting. I also am usually busy trying to convince my kids to eat even two bites of real food and use the bathroom before heading out the door. I have close to no time to get ready myself!
I always get so many questions about Halloween makeup that I decided to do a video tutorial of two other fun looks that you can totally do at home. I hope you like them!
Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel as I do post a lot of videos on YouTube that never make it to the blog!
Rainbow Unicorn Makeup
This one was so fun to do, and I challenged myself by trying to do it sans brushes, as a busy Mama would need to in the car or on the road someplace! You also don’t have to draw the shapes on your face and can leave it with just the pretty eyes, highlight, and lipstick. I also love creating a cool, ombré lipstick effect by pressing the two colors together on my lips!
First, add L’Oréal Infallible Paints Metallic in Violet Luster to the top of your eyelids…
Next, add Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Wattabrat to the outer corner of your eyelids and your outer brow bone area…
Next, add a touch of Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Supercharged Copper Shimmer to your cheeks…
Taking your Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlight in Metal Moon, add some to the tops of your cheekbones, your brow bone, and the inner corners of your eyes…
Next, take your NYX Cosmetics Slim Eye Pencil in Aqua Shimmer and line the top of your eyelids…
Then, take your NYX Cosmetics Slim Eye Pencil in Sky Shimmer and line your bottom lash line with it…
Next, take your Fenty Beauty Liquid Diamond Bomb Glitter Highlighter and place some on the bridge of your nose, on the highest points of your cheekbones, and on your cupids bow.
Next, add a layer of Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara to your top and bottom lashes…
Next, take your Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipstick in Purpcicle and layer it just on your top lip…
Then add Fenty Beauty Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipstick in Motorboat to your bottom lip, and rub the two colors together!
You can use the shimmery eye pencils to draw freehand shapes on your cheeks if you want to! I drew stars and hearts.
WOODLAND CREATURE MAKEUP…
I love this makeup look because it’s pretty, dramatic, and Halloween-y without looking scary. A great costume in itself, with just a sweater as I have pictured! I feel false lashes are a must for this one, so make sure you pick up a set!
First, take your Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in a much lighter color than you would normally wear, and apply it to your under-eye area, then to the bridge of your nose, pulling it up to the center of your forehead, to your cupids bow, and finally to your eyelids.
Next, take your Fenty Beauty Precision Makeup Sponge and blend your concealer down. Don’t worry if it looks a little weird…using a lighter concealer is bound to look strange before you add the rest of the makeup!
Next, grab your e.l.f. Cosmetics Contouring Blush & Bronzer in Fiji and use the bronzer as an eyeshadow base for the crease of your eyes and blend well…
Next, take the Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer in I$land Ting and apply as contour to the hallows of your cheeks, around the edges of your forehead, and along the sides of your nose…
Next, taking your Wet n Wild MegaLiner Liquid Liner in Dark Brown, draw on your deer nose!
Taking your Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Mega Last Lip Color in Ghostly Beings, draw some spots on your forehead, and also down your cheeks…
Next, grab your Fenty Beauty Flyliner Longwear Liquid Liner in Cuz I’m Black and line the top and bottom lash lines, extending the inner corners downward and outer corners upward. This creates that’s doe-like eye effect!
Next, take your NYX Cosmetics Liquid Liner in Blanc and add a few smaller spots around your face, and also fill in small parts of the spots you made earlier, for depth…
Now, take your Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Unveil and apply it to your upper lip ONLY…
Next, take your Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Unbutton and apply it to your bottom lip ONLY…
Last but not least: FALSE LASHES! These are my fav!
Which makeup look is your fave? Also, I wanted to add that you can use these looks on your kids, too! Marlowe is going as a rainbow for her school Halloween parade, and I plan on doing this exact makeup look for her that day!
