Here are a few easy Halloween makeup ideas that you can quickly turn into half glam look (like I did with #4):

And here's how to:

  1. Highlight and contour with a lighter and darker foundation. I used Illamasqua Skin Base 01 and 18. Create a bold brow using a black gel liner like MAC Blacktrack. Create the illusion of fake blood by drawing blood drips randomly around the eyes and below the mouth using a mixture of a red pigment and a mixing medium. I used Illamasqua Berber with Sealing Gel, then I added a little bit Jeffree Star Unicorn Blood. Top off the look using a dark brown lipstick like Jeffree Star Dominatrix.
  2. Create a phantom-like base by layering a white foundation like Illamasqua Skin Base 01 to lighten your complexion. Sculpt comic-style contours using a light blue and lime green eyeshadow. I used Illamasqua Anja and Pivot. Apply a bright pink lipstick like Illamasqua Eurydice. Lastly use a black gel liner to outline the brows, eyes, and lips to bring life to your cartoon-inspired look.
  3. Begin by blending a black gel liner to create a deep, smoky eye base. Use some neutral eyeshadows to add detail to the look and blend to create a feline-shaped eye. I used Illamasqua Neutral Palette. Using a black gel liner, draw a black line extending from the tip of the nose to the bottom lip, fill in the bottom lip and add in whiskers to finish the look.
  4. Create a ghostly base using a white foundation (Illamasqua Skin Base 01) and contour deep cheekbones using a gray eyeshadow like Illamasqua Incubus. Use a black gel liner to draw sunken eyes and dust a red pigment (Illamasqua Berber) above and below the eye to set the look. Finish adding stitch-like details to the face using a black liquid liner like Illamasqua Abyss.
