When it comes to Halloween, many people think of costumes and candy. But for some, Halloween is all about the makeup, especially Halloween eye makeup!
One of the great things about Halloween makeup is that it gives you a chance to experiment with looks that you might not normally go for. So if you’ve been dying to work with bright colors and try Halloween eye makeup, this is your chance!
How to Apply Halloween Eye Makeup
There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re doing your Halloween eye makeup. First of all, you’ll want to start with a clean canvas. Make sure your face is clean and free of makeup before starting. This will help your makeup go on more smoothly and evenly.
Next, you’ll want to choose a color scheme. Black and white are always popular choices for Halloween, but you can also go with a more colorful look. Just make sure that the colors you choose complement each other.
Once you’ve chosen your colors, it’s time to start applying your makeup. If you’re not used to doing your own makeup, it might be a good idea to practice on a piece of paper first. This way, you can get a feel for how much makeup you need to apply and where.
When you’re ready to start applying your makeup, start with a light base. You can use a white or light-colored eyeshadow to help create a blank canvas. Then, start adding in your eyeshadow. Use a darker shade in the crease of your eyelid to create depth and dimension. For a more subtle look, start with a light eyeshadow color on your lid, and then use a darker shade in the crease. Either way, blend your eyeshadow well, so there are no harsh lines.
Finally, complete your look with some Halloween-themed accessories. A pair of false eyelashes with spider web details would be perfect, or you could use colored lashes or pumpkin-shaped glitter. With a steady hand, you can draw bats, witches, cats, or even spiders. The possibilities are endless!
