Make-up tips according to the Halloween costume – witch
The witch costume is a Halloween classic, so we give you an idea for quick make-up. First, make up your face with a pale face – use a foundation lighter than your natural skin color or baby powder (in which case you should also wash your face in advance and apply foundation). Strongly emphasize your eyes with dark eyeshadows – in black, dark green, deep blue or purple, and lips – with a dark red lipstick. A great idea are the artificial eyelashes – both for the upper, as well as for the lower eyelid. If you are artistically gifted, you could also try using kohl pencil to paint a spider’s web in the corner of your eye or on the forehead (the photos above would give you a better idea).
Make-up for Halloween: vampire woman
About the same is the make-up, if you want to be a vampire woman for Halloween – pale face and heavily stressed eyes and lips. For a special horror effect use eyeshadows in red and purple and emphasize the lower lip or the corners of the mouth with some fake blood.
Make-up skull – the perfect zombie makeup
The zombie make-up is a bit harder to do, but it’s definitely worth it, because the result is really impressive. Make up your face with baby powder and emphasize the skin around the eyes and under the cheekbones with eyeshadows in red, purple and dark blue. Use yellow and gray nuances to mimic the typical marks of death on the skin. For the horror effect but the deep, bloody wounds are the most important. These can be done very easily with a little translucent latex. Apply it layer by layer on the skin and let it dry completely. Next, you should apply some primer on the latex so that it gets your skin color. After you are done, make it with the scissors like a deep wound (be careful not to hurt yourself) and dye the skin underneath in blood red and brown. This is how you have achieved the desired effect! You get particularly amazing make-up by dividing your face in half by such an artificial wound. One half make you creepy, and the other – as usual.
