Face Makeup for Awesome Halloween Costumes
Makeup, it’s a great way to create your own awesome Halloween Costumes.
I have gotten a little better at applying it over the years.
Of course, the minions now sit better for me to apply it.
And, they enjoy the different looks we get.
I’m sharing today several years worth of Halloween faces that we have created.
Back in 2011, we had a goth fairy, and a pink skeleton.
These looks were pretty easy to create.
The skeleton was pink over all her face.
Then, I added a light coating of black around her eyes
and a triangle dot on her nose.
Of course, I put her hair up, but then I used a black eyeliner to add dots around the gray parts, and drew in the skull teeth over her mouth.
It was a super-fast costume.
I even added a line down her throat, and just traced over to look like neck bones.
I think the shirt and gloves made the set though!
The goth fairy was a white face paint, with pink around the eyes.
Again, I took the black and made a stitched mouth with puckered lips.
I added some self stick gems, and more dots around the eyes and under the lips.
Didn’t take long, but some fun plaid and black wings, this outfit was popular!
Look, they love to be creepy!
The next year, we had a living doll. Her face looked like porcelain with a little foundation.
I used some white paint and made the bigger eyes, then traced on the eyelashes.
She sat well for someone getting close to her eyes with makeup.
The lips are a little pink lipstick, traced with black. I did a little blush and dots for freckles with black eyeliner.
Watch out, ZOMBIE!!
No, it’s just Alizabeth.
I love the effect – creepy and scary and gross, all at once.
I painted her face white, adding in black and green tones. We added baby powder to her hair, to make it washed out looking, and teased it a bit – which didn’t stay long.
Then I added brown paint for dried looking blood, and we used a good packet of fake blood on her face and dripping down. Wear old clothes!!
Last one. Annalise fell in love with Sugar Skulls on Pinterest last year. I had to make her into one.
Alizabeth didn’t dress up, but was a great big sister and walked Annalise around last year.
I painted her face white, and then outlined with a black eye pencil.
The pink in her hair is her usual color, so that was a bonus.
I pouffed her hair and we added two big black flower clips.
After I outlined her face, I filled in with different colors of face paint.
Then I added some gems for a little sparkle!
I honestly do not know if my girls will be dressing up for Halloween this year, but I sure will jump right in and help with their costumes!
What other face paint ideas do you think would make a great costume?
