Halloween is just around the corner. Which means it’s time to start figuring out what you could possibly wear to all of those Halloween parties you’ll be invited to. While some people go all out when it comes to Halloween costumes there are some people who want a simple Halloween makeup look that won’t cause too much planning. If you aren’t someone who specializes in special effect makeup or you just want something you can do in five minutes or less this list is for you. Below are Halloween makeup looks that will take you less than five minutes to complete. While some of them look a little difficult or may require you have certain kind of makeup none of them will make you stare at yourself in a mirror for hours upon hours. A few of these Halloween makeup looks are also easy and wearable if you want to be festive at the office without being too over the top. From spooky to something cute there is a Halloween makeup look for everyone.
1. Devil And Angel Brows
This look is simple. All it really requires is your ability to do your eyes and brows. For one eye and brow use brighter colors, find a yellow liner or shadow and paint a little halo above your brow. For the other side of your face use darker colors, including red and black. Then once you’re satisfied with your eye look use a red liner or shadow to draw on some devil horns on that brow. You can get creative by adding a red devil tail wrapped around your liner but that isn’t a must considering you will have the devil horns. This is one of the more work or school appropriate Halloween makeup looks as well. It’s not over the top and doesn’t cover your face.
This is more cute than it is creepy. While it may seem like it’s a lot of work it really isn’t. Just grab a good liquid eyeliner, a peach eyeshadow or lipstick and get going. Draw on the nose, lips and rosy cheeks first with the peach lipstick or eyeshadow. Then use the eyeliner to draw on the patch-like line work on your face. Add on the over the top under eyeliner for a more dramatic and cartoonish look.
3. Queen Of Hearts
This is another work appropriate Halloween makeup look. Do your eyes however you would normally do your eye makeup and then from there get creative with a red eyeliner or use a liquid lipstick to create these little hearts. Carefully draw on two little hearts on the apples of each cheep. Place a dot above and below the hearts. Be sure to have your lips be the same or a similar shade of red to complete this Halloween makeup look.
4. Spider Queen
This spider Halloween makeup look looks more intricate than it actually is. Grab an eyeliner and draw a spider web above one eye and below on the cheek on the opposite side of your face. To make this Halloween makeup look extra festive you can add a few gems to make your spiderweb truly pop.
5. Bowie Babe
This is probably the only Halloween makeup look on this list that requires more than what you would naturally have in your makeup bag. Find paint made specifically for your face, please don’t put acrylic paint on your skin that is just asking for a rash. The higher quality paint the better, to ensure that it won’t make your face break out and that it will last the night. Once you’ve gotten the materials this look is actually pretty easy. If you’re incertain of the lines and want to make them super crisp use makeup tape. For the most part this lightning bolt isn’t difficult to recreate. It only two colors, you don’t have to incorporate the black, and use a mauve colored eyeshadow to sketch out the edges of your face.
This is another Halloween makeup look that looks intricate but it isn’t. All you really need is a good brush and some black eyeshadow. Draw triangles above and below both eyes, extending high on your forehead and low to your cheeks, almost to your mouth. From there use black lipstick and extend it past the sides of your mouth, like a clown would. Don’t forget the black button nose. If you’re feeling extra festive you can put black eyeshadow or paint on your neck as well.
7. Stars In Her Eyes
This is a simple Halloween makeup look because it doesn’t even require makeup. If you’re someone who doesn’t like or really own a lot of makeup this look is for you. Find some stars and paste them over your cheeks. There are stickers made safely for your face or you can use eyelash glue to attach these.
8. Disco Spots
This is a festively colorful Halloween makeup look. This look is for everyone who wants to look cute but doesn’t want something too intricate. Just place random colorful dots all over your eyes. You’ll look like a disco queen.
You can’t have a simple Halloween makeup list without having a cat on it. This is a look that is guaranteed to take less than five minutes. What’s nice about this is everyone will know what you are. It’s a simple yet effective costume.
10. Pop Art
This look is similar to the scarecrow look. Go ahead and draw on where you want the pop art to be on your face, tears, eyeliner, lips and brows. From there take an eyeliner and draw on the lines around those spaces you just filled in. Be sure to add lines on your nose and chin to make yourself look like a drawing.
11. Deer Makeup
Similar to the cat makeup look a deer is an animal that’s become incredibly popular. The only time consuming part of this look will be all the dots your draw on your face and shoulders. This is a Halloween makeup look that is just too cute.
