In The SPIRIT Of Fun – Halloween Makeup Tutorial

by Cupful Of Sprinkles

A ghoulish, statement look that really stands out and has a true eerie feel. The pure white face provides the backdrop and allows the dark rimmed eyes to really stand out. Dark shading’s applied to the cheekbones to give a more chiselled look, which makes you look a little bit more angled. A cracked effect’s created on the lips with red smudging, which is the perfect finishing touch to this eerie look,  which  is  perfect  for  Halloween!In The SPIRIT Of Fun - Halloween Makeup Tutorial

This look is spooky-pretty and has such a strong Halloween vibe, without being gruesome or too terrifying. It’s super simple and easy to do, and so effective that it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s still feminine and has a simple element about it that can’t be beaten.

If you’re still stuck on what to go as this Halloween, why not try this look? Just pair it with a white dress, and you have the perfect Halloween outfit.

  • Using a large eye shadow brush and charcoal eye shadow. Cover the eyelid up to and including the eye brows. Following the nose round and under the eye creating a circle.
  • With an angled brush and black eye shadow. Apply to the outer corner of the eye, blending towards the brow and down the bridge of the nose following the curve created in the previous step and line the bottom eyelid and blend.
  • Use a flat brush to lightly press white eye shadow / highlighter powder under the eyebrow, to the inner corner of the eye and to the bottom of the large circles and blend.In The SPIRIT Of Fun - Halloween Makeup Tutorial
  • Use a creamy black eyeliner / Kajal liner to line the top and bottom lids, getting slightly thicker towards the ends and bringing to a flick. Make sure there’s no gaps between the lashes and eyeliner. Lightly smudge the colour outwards to blend into the circles, I found it easier to use an angled eyeliner brush for this step.
  • Line the rims of your eyes with a black eyeliner pencil.In The SPIRIT Of Fun - Halloween Makeup Tutorial
  • If your eyes are looking too one-dimensional add a bit more highlighter until you are happy with the look. Remember, you want the bridge of your nose to be quite dark, so try to avoid adding too much highlighter to this area.
  • Finally use your finger to apply dark grey glitter to the inner corners of the eye, (this step can be missed). Apply a heavy coat of extra black mascara or false lashes, depending on preference, and lightly dust the very outer edges of the circles with white face powder to stop the look being too harsh.In The SPIRIT Of Fun - Halloween Makeup Tutorial


  • Use the same charcoal eye shadow as step one and a blusher brush to blend under cheekbones and to the corners of your forehead. This can be as dramatic as you like!In The SPIRIT Of Fun - Halloween Makeup Tutorial


  • Take a red liquid blusher / lip stain and brush over your lips using a  lip brush to create a very sheer stain.
  • Once dry lightly dust with white face powder until ‘cracks’ start to appear.In The SPIRIT Of Fun - Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Now just spray some dry shampoo, or dust your hair with talcum powder, and style as desired.
