Halloween costumes can take a variety of accessories, ranging from hats and wigs to jewelry and makeup. You can find special makeup and facial paint designed just for dressing up in costumes such as a clown, witch, and zombie. Halloween makeup is a great alternative to wearing Halloween masks, as not everyone enjoys covering up their face or whole head.
Before picking out your Halloween makeup, you may want to decide what exactly you are being for Halloween. If you are looking to use the makeup or facial paint this year, then here are a few Halloween makeup and costume ideas.
Facial paint for a clown can consist of white and colored makeup. You can paint your entire face white to start with. Then you can add other colors, such as red rosy cheeks, red or pink around the lips, and blue around the eyes. The colors you add, including on the cheeks, are optional of course. You can even do pink rosy cheeks, red around the lips, and orange around the eyes. You can also buy your clown outfit first and then pick out colored facial paint that matches the outfit.
With monster makeup, you can come up with almost anything. You can paint your face green, white, black, red, or any color you would like your monster to be. You can include facial paint that looks like blood, scars, warts, and more. In addition, you can add in accessories such as fangs and bug antennas.
Princess Halloween makeup can be fairly simple. This can range from white facial makeup (but with a more natural look than being a clown or monster) and red rosy cheeks to glitter and body jewels. You can wear regular lip and eye makeup and put the glitter or jewels around your eyes or on your forehead. The makeup can match the princess gown or dress.
Witch Halloween makeup can be green, white, or gray. You can paint up your whole face and even your arms and hands. Add a fake nose or makeup that looks like a wart on your nose, chin, or cheek. Top it off with dark green or black lipstick. You can even add accessories such as a black or white wig under your witch hat.
Wearing zombie makeup is similar to wearing monster makeup, you can come up with almost anything. The makeup can be white or green on the face with fake blood, scars, bite marks, and cuts on top of it. You can keep it simple or make it look disgusting.
A list of Halloween makeup and costume ideas can help you to pick out your costume in advance. This way you can get the makeup before Halloween and have more time to spend putting it on. It may take a little while to put the facial paint and makeup on, but when you are done, you will look great! You can keep your makeup simple or add as much detail as you would like! Be creative and have fun dressing up and wearing your Halloween makeup this year! Happy Halloween!
