10. Harley Quinn Makeup Look for Halloween
Harley Quinn makeup looks were popular in 2021, but this equal parts easy and "cute" costume is not only fun to create but also requires only a few key items! A special thanks again to SFX Artist @caykeface for creating this amazing video tutorial. Be sure to check it out to see all the products she used!
9. Cowboy (or Cowgirl) Makeup
When it comes to a great Halloween costume, a Cowboy or Cowgirl is always a fun option! An essential part of this popular Halloween Makeup Look is the slightly dirty/dusty looking makeup that suggests you just got done working a long day on the ranch or had a scuffle with someone that was eyeing your land.
Ben Nye Grime FX Character Powder is perfect to create that worn and weathered look! Available in a variety of sizes, there are shades that perfectly ash, coal, and plains dust to amp up your Halloween Costume!
PRO Tip: To make this look more belieable, consider adding extra bronzer to the face to mimic the tan you'd get from being outside working hard all day and even a few freckles using our freckle makeup!
8. Cheerleader Halloween Makeup
7. Rabbit Halloween Makeup
Of course, you could always opt for your average Halloween Rabbit Makeup Look, paint on a bunny nose and whiskers, and call it a day, but for those that really want to wow their friends, consider this!
A Rabbit Nose Prosthetic will give your look the extra dimension you crave, and it's easy to apply. If you want a slightly less prominent nose, opt for this super cute cat nose! Watch the easy to follow "How to Apply a Prosthetic or Transfer" tutorial @brittanylessard created for us to learn how to apply whichever nose you pick!
6. Pirate Halloween Makeup Look
5. Fairy Makeup Look
We love a good Fairy Halloween makeup look or costume because it allows the wearer to be as creative as they'd like with glitter, ethereal shifting shades of makeup, and more. This year, the viral sensation Danessa Myricks Infinite Chrome Flakes would be a great option for multi-dimensional looks that stay on for hours, or take your glitter game to the next level with Lemonhead.LA's glittery products (did you know they've also been used on the set of hit series Euphoria!?)!
4. Stranger Things Inspired Halloween Look
We are firm believers that videos are the best way to share Halloween inspiration, so be ready to be awestruck by @caykeface's Stranger Things inspired look she created in partnership with us!
3. Dinosaur Halloween Makeup
At first mention, a Dinosaur Makeup Look may seem intimidating, but we promise it's easy when you have the right makeup! First, determine if you only want to use face or body paint to paint your dinosaur skin or if you want to add texture to make it look more scaly and textured with Wrinkle Stipple.
PRO Tip: Since most movies and shows depict dinosaur skin as being weathered and textured, using a sea sponge or a makeup sponge that has been torn to expose jagged and irregular edges to apply your makeup can help create a more "realistic" appearance!
2. Spiderman Makeup for Halloween
We can't remember a year when Spiderman Makeup wasn't trending for Halloween, so we've created a list below of the Spiderman Makeup Essentials!
To create the perfect (and easy!) Spiderman Halloween Makeup Look, we recommend:
A Bald Cap for a perfectly smooth head
- Mehron Barrier Spray to spritz on to clean skin before painting (it helps to slow sweat production that would make your makeup run!
- Mehron Paradise Makeup Palette in Basic for all the colors you'll need
- Mehron Paradise Makeup Brushes for easy application
- A good SFX Setting Spray to seal in your look
Start by applying the bald cap, and once applied, spritz your skin lightly with Mehron Barrier Spray. Next, take a makeup pencil to lightly outline the eyes and different areas you'll paint different colors. Next, using the brushes, mix in a little bit of water to activate the makeup and paint. Allow each layer to dry before adding the next. We recommend also filling in any larger areas before creating the darker black outlines, as it will prevent the deeper shades from mixing with the lighter ones.
When the makeup is dry, use the fine line brush to paint on a spider web pattern. If you don't love freehanding, use a lighter toned makeup pencil to draw on the pattern before painting the web.
