Halloween isn’t just about costumes anymore. To get into character, a popular trend is to use makeup to add the necessary features. Whether you choose to represent a cat, vampire, skeleton or a witch, makeup is just the thing you need to enhance your Halloween look.
If you are at a loss about what to wear, which look to carry, or where to look for easy Halloween makeup tips, read on our list of six costumes that will take minimal effort and produce maximum results.
Shop Lakme 9-5 Lipstick HERE
Wednesday Adams is the epitome of dark humour, and who doesn’t want to be her? Replicate her look with a colour block dress in monochrome. Add a black sweater and braid your hair into two plaits. Still think the look is lacking? Apply the Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Matte Colour in Cabernet. The ideal shade is black to carry the spooky, but we think this shade works just as well and can be used again to complement those sultry colours.
Shop Colorbar Eye Shadow Palette HERE
Time to play superhero/heroine. Dig through your closet and find black leggings and a black tank top. Bonus points if you can make a cape from a dupatta. For the makeup, apply black eyeliner and trace the outer edges of a bat mask around your eyes. Now take the Colorbar Splendid Touch palette and colour in the mask with golden eye shadow. Now go save the world!
Shop Faces Glam Goddess Kit HERE
A quick and easy Halloween makeup idea is going old school. And by old school, we mean ancient. Dress up like the Queen Cleopatra with this Faces Glam Goddess kit. The necklace doubles as a headpiece. Use the shimmery eye shadow liberally to highlight your eyes. Get a little creative with the eyeliner to create that contoured cat-eye look the Egyptians loved. You can also check out the various beauty tips online to perfect your Cleopatra look. Don’t forget the shimmery lipstick for a regal finish.
The Wicked Witch
Shop Faces Glam On Palette HERE
Halloween is that one time of the year when you are allowed to be evil. A black dress, a black hat and colourful makeup is all you need to transform into the wicked witch from Oz. Use a combination of blue and green eye shadow from the Faces Glam On palette around your eyes. Apply till your eyebrows, on the sides of the eye and below the eye as well. Bright red lipstick will finish this simple ensemble.
Shop Maybelline Colossal Kajal HERE
This one is for all the lazy souls out there. The cat is an easy costume to throw together at the last minute. But first, you will need the Maybelline Colossal Kajal that has a rich, dark colour. You can either go for just whiskers drawn below your nose, or lookup Halloween makeup tips online for a more detailed look. Either way, the only other thing you will need is a cat ear hairband. Meow!
