Well, it’s that time of year again… Halloween is a few weeks away. Halloween makeup tutorials, desserts, and anything else Fall or Halloween themed has been around for weeks filling our social media feeds with ideas for whatever plans you may have for the day. Although things will be a little different this year with social distancing, I have no doubt that there will be zoom Halloween parties or at the very least a watch party or two. We can still get into the Halloween spirit social distancing style. I’ve always loved looking at the different makeup concepts people create when Halloween comes around so this year, I’m sharing 9 Halloween makeup ideas from a few of my favorite beauty bloggers in this roundup.
Have plans, but can’t figure out what you’re wearing for Halloween? Whether you’re going all out with a costume or doing simple makeup and need some inspiration?
If you’re like me and love Halloween, but don’t want to go full gore for your makeup, or your skills aren’t there yet, I’m sharing some makeup and costume ideas some of my favorite beauty bloggers for inspiration. My skills aren’t there yet to complete most of these looks without help, but that’s okay. For that reason, I’m sharing my content a little early so you have some time to practice or arrange for someone to help you if you need it. Nevertheless, that’s not your only option, you could always just rock some Halloween colors and do a simple look then you have a whole year to practice the more complex looks.
9 Halloween Makeup Ideas From 3 Of My Favorite Beauty Bloggers
Slashed Beauty by Miranda Mendelson: I discovered Miranda’s blog about 2 years ago in early 2018. I have been reading ever since. I love the concept of her blog especially the tagline wish is “redefining the cost of beauty”. Slashed Beauty is a great resource to check out for makeup dupes especially if you’re trying to stay build a makeup collection on a budget. She features amazing reviews and tutorials on her blog. I discovered BH Cosmetics Comfort Cashmere Cream lipsticks on her blog and decided to give them a try. I bought a total of 8 shades and if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know how much fun I’ve been having with them.
Of course I had to check Slashed Beauty for this Halloween Makeup roundup and I found a few fun ones that I had to include.
Easy Halloween Makeup Idea: Spider Mouth: When I first saw this makeup tutorial, I was hoping you guys would like it as much as I do. If you want a look that’s somewhat creepy, you get that with the black lips and spider legs while the webs around the eyes help add a bit of glam to the look. This video is less than 10 minutes which makes it easy to show someone for a bit of help when drawing the straight lines because let’s be real, it can be difficult when your hands may not cooperate with what you actually need them to do.
Easy Fantasy Owl Halloween Makeup Tutorial: If you love owls, this is definitely the makeup look for you. Miranda creates this relatively easy feathery makeup look using eyeshadow and lots of liner. The process looks fun, but you may want to practice a few times first if your hands don’t always cooperate with what you want them to do. This video is just about 10 minutes long so if you do need help with it, it won’t take long to show someone what you’re trying to accomplish.
Last Minute Flower Child Halloween Makeup Tutorial: This makeup look is so cute and the step by step video tutorial is less than ten minutes long and full of drugstore products for an easy look. However, if you have fine motor skill issues like me you may want to start practicing so you have some time to perfect the look or at least time to ask for some help so you can get right for next year.
DIY Scarecrow Costume & Makeup Tutorial: Of the Halloween, makeup looks on Slashed Beauty, this is definitely one of my favorites and I have to say, if you love Wizard Of Oz, it would be a fun twist on the scarecrow from the movie. The video is around 20 minutes and the makeup takes up the majority of it, as with the other looks this one doesn’t look too complicated. However, I’d be sure to practice the eyeshadow and stitches aspects of the look. I have no major plans for Halloween to create a look like this, but that means I have a year to practice this look. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.
Glam Half Zombie Halloween Makeup Tutorial: Want a look with a bit more gore? I get it, I mean it is Halloween after all. If you want to add a scary aspect to your makeup look, but still want to look pretty, this is the look for you. This video is 10 minutes long so just like the fantasy owl makeup look, it shouldn’t take long to show someone if you do end up needing some assistance to create this look.
I love this look and it’s right of my alley with the glam and Halloween aspects, however, it does involve using a toothpick near your face or something else small that can help you create the jagged line look on your face, I’d suggest getting help for this part or lots of careful practice so you don’t hurt yourself, (just thinking about doing it makes me a bit nervous).
Ventriloquist Doll Halloween Makeup Tutorial: Last but not least of the makeup looks on the Slashed Beauty blog, is the Ventriloquist Doll makeup tutorial. This is another short video so again you can show it to someone for help if needed.Pexels.com
Jasmine Maria Blog by Jasmine Maria: I’ve been reading this particular blog for a while, Jasmine is a makeup artist and blogger. I love her blog reviews. Sadly, I was only able to find two Halloween Makeup looks to include in this roundup, but let me just say these looks are a little more glam than creepy.
Wicked Spider Web Halloween Look: If you’re looking for something that creepy to get in the Halloween spirit, but trying to keep the glam aspect as well, this is a good option. This post isn’t a step-by-step tutorial, however, it looks like a simple makeup look, just add fake spiders and she lists her makeup products in the post. You can get creative with the look and add your own spin, then add the spiders in to show your Halloween spirit. Mt goal is to be able to create a look like this hopefully next year, just for fun, but I think if I tried to do an exact replica, I’d need help, especially with the spider webs aspect of it.
Mermaid Halloween Look: Who doesn’t love mermaids? If you’re looking for more of a glam versus creepy look this year, this look should be on your radar. This is one of my favorite looks of this Halloween Roundup. This post is unfortunately doesn’t go into detail about how to create the look, but it does tell you the products used in addition to offering great makeup inspiration if you decide you don’t want to try/wear this particular makeup look.
Meg O. On The Go: is a beauty, motherhood, and lifestyle blog. This blog is one of my favorites to check in with every week or so for some new beauty tips. I love her tutorials. Unfortunately, I was only able to find one post I wanted to include in this Halloween makeup roundup, despite the fact that this particular look is actually a hair tutorial.
Easy Halloween Hair Tutorial: 1920’s Flapper: This last one is actually a hair tutorial, but the blogger writes that with a simple black dress and pearls, you’ll look will be complete. This flapper look is great for last-minute plans because it’s simple, yet put together.
Well, that wraps up this Halloween makeup roundup. 9 makeup looks for some inspiration for your Halloween costume and makeup look.
