I love Halloween. Simply put. Always did. It's a chance to be creative, pull out your inner kid, eat a lot of candy just because, and of course, go a little crazy with your makeup and hair. I was invited to do a live Halloween makeup segment on the Daily Mail's Facebook page this week. I came up with two relatively easy and inexpensive Halloween makeup looks that many of us can do right at home and with makeup products we may already have. If you missed the segment, you can always watch it here and follow my steps below for achieving these two looks.
What began as a skeleton but merged into a skele-kitty per my model's request as we added whiskers after the taping of this video, this is an easy and simple look the biggest "makeup dummy" can achieve:
If you're feeling advanced, take a fine black eyeliner and draw some cracks on the skull, and to add an extra element of creepiness, pop in some eerie colored contacts.
Here's a look that is versatile and can be modified to fit your costume. Although a little more complex that the classic skeleton, this is one that you can still make work with most of the makeup you already have in your drawer.
Take the same spider webs and white hair spray, and tease the hair! Hell, throw in some twigs, plastic spiders, etc. As for your costume, I'm a big thrift store/flea market shopper when it comes to Halloween. See what you can piece together if you have the time. You're sure to be the only one with your costume!
