Last Minute Halloween Makeup Idea + GIVEAWAY (closed)

In need of a quick Halloween makeup idea? Here’s a vampire-esque look our MUA, Julia, wore a few nights ago!


1. Prior to applying the shadow, use the BH Jumbo Eye Crayon in Royal as the base to achieve the deep purple tones instead of using black. I also used this crayon to line the waterline of my eyes for a more dramatic appearance.

2. Use the dark shimmer plum and blue shades from the ‘night’ (right) side of the 60 Color Day & Night Palette.

3. Make sure to blend well in between applying each shade using a Blending Brush.

4. Contour the face for strongly defined cheek and jaw lines using the Contour and Blush Palette.

5. Line the lips with Waterproof Lip Liner in Retro and top off with a bright red shade from the 32 Color Lip Palette.

    Last minute makeup ideas for halloween, of course the vampira look is always greatly popular. But other looks like semi worn off makeup for the just out of bed look. Or wear all white and cut out spots of black and use black eye pencils to create dalmation spots and got as a dalmation dog. Or draw with black eye pencil a cate-eye some whiskers and go as a cat. Or splash paint all over your old preferably white clothes and go as a painting of some sort.

    I think a sugar skull will be easy and last minute. It doesn’t have a right or wrong way to paint it on. You can keep it simple or go all out.

    Last minute makeup: cat eyes and red lip to be a flapper, Lucille ball, or a poodle skirt outfit!

    For girls with long black hair, make a side braid along with light blue and dark blue eyeshadow, thick liner, mascara, a golden head band and a blue skirt. Introducing Princess Jasmine πŸ™‚

    A skull! All you need to do is use a Jumbo Eye Crayon in Crystal and blend it over your face. Then take your Jumbo Eye Crayon in Shadow and blend it on and around your eyes, creating a hollow, sunken, circular shape. Lastly, take your favorite black gel eyeliner and use it to create stitches on your lips and bones on your cheeks and forehead! πŸ™‚

    I think an easy last minute makeup look for Halloween would be a witch a la Hocus Pocus. A beautiful dark green smokey eye (using the BH Day and Night palette), dark red lip, bright blush and teased hair! Don’t forget the black mascara and thick full false lashes!

  13. Jenie October 31, 2012 7:53 pm

    An easy, last minute makeup look for Halloween would be a modern twist on the classic witch. Using the Day and Night palette, create a dark green smokey eye, a deep red for the lips, jet black mascara and full thick lashes… Finish with teased hair and big dress that’s layered… you’ve got a great look as one of the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus!

    I like the dark blue or black smokey eye with bottom lids lined with black kohl pencil and at the corners I make a spider web design that is embelished with facial glitter. I then paint my lips red. I typically wear a black unitard with a home made tail for catwoman effect.
