Easy Halloween Makeup Looks
Looking for that simple and easy Halloween makeup look? Then makeup kits are the perfect option for you. They come in a variety of different characters like a pirate, mouse, werewolf, mummy, basically anything you can think of. Each makeup kit comes with instructions so you don’t have to be an expert at Halloween makeup to make these amazing looks. There are even family packs so you can create a look for each member. And if you don’t want makeup, try a temporary tattoo!
AHH! Scary Halloween Makeup
Halloween is the acceptable time to bring out all the spooky costumes and get your scare on. Do you go with a vampire, werewolf or scary clown? Either way, having the right look is crucial to make a scary statement. Try one of our Mehron kits that come with everything you need, even the applicators and makeup brushes. Fun World also has some great spooky makeup looks.
Halloween Cat Makeup
Cats are always a Halloween favorite, whether that’s a tiger, leopard or house cat. Halloween cat makeup is also an easy and simple one, too. You can use a kit or just get orange or yellow and black or brown Graftobian makeup to create your own unique look. Graftobian even makes stencils that you can use to create different looks!
Zombie Halloween Makeup
Zombies are another one of those classic Halloween costumes. There are so many ways to do a zombie look that you really can’t go wrong. Use some zombie liquid latex skin and blood or tattoos topping it off with a zombie eye. Or you can get a Fun World or Graftobian zombie makeup kit with step-by-step instructions for an easy Halloween makeup look.
Skeleton Halloween Makeup
Skeleton makeup seems like it would be an easy one to do but don’t be fooled. There is so much detail that goes into the mouth and face to get the perfect skull look. There are plenty of helpful tips and tattoos to get the face paint in perfect order, though. Mehron has a complete Skeleton Halloween makeup kit that comes with easy instructions, or if you’re feeling daring buy black and white makeup and make your own look!
Halloween Witch Makeup
All the best stories have witches in them, so why wouldn’t you want to be one for Halloween! It’s probably one of the most simple Halloween makeup looks around, too. Grab some green makeup and black lipstick and you're set. If you don’t want the green makeup, you can do a black lipstick and nail polish kit with a simple black witch dress and hat.
Unicorn Halloween Makeup
Okay, we’ve done enough of the dark scary ones, so how about a beautiful unicorn? Fun World makes a super simple kit that even comes with the horn. You can even get some gold or silver glitter makeup to create your own unicorn look! Jazz it up with some colored eyelashes and glitter hairspray.
