There’s something magical about deer during the autumn months. Maybe it’s the way they gracefully move through the woods, or the way their antlers seem to shimmer in the sunlight.

Whatever the reason, deer have a special place in our hearts during this time of year. And what better way to honor these creatures than by incorporating them into our Halloween costumes?

11. Graveyard Eye Makeup

Apply Vaseline

If you are applying face paint, try applying a very thin coat of vaseline to your face before applying the makeup. Face paint can be difficult to remove, and vaseline will help make the removal process easier.

12. The Bride of Frankenstein

The Wicked Witch is usually characterized as being cruel, powerful, and determined to get her way. She is often shown using magical spells and flying on her broomstick.

The Wicked Witch is also known for her famous catchphrase, “I’ll get you, my pretty!”No matter how she is portrayed, the Wicked Witch of the West remains one of the most memorable and popular villains of all time.

Create Texture

You can use makeup to create texture. If you use a brushing motion, your makeup will be smoother. However, if you dapple on your makeup, you’ll get a bumpier texture. Play around with how you apply your makeup to discover different textures.

18. The Nightmare Before Christmas

Set Your Makeup

If you don’t want to buy additional makeup, you can use what you have on hand. I recommend searching YouTube for simple makeup tutorials that you can do with just a little bit of makeup. Some tutorials you can check out are:

Cat makeup is a timeless Halloween classic that can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. To create a basic cat look, start by applying a light foundation all over your face to even out your skin tone.

Next, use a black eyeliner pencil to line your eyes, extending the liner slightly at the outer corners to create a winged effect. Add some lashes and apply some mascara, then fill in your eyebrows using a brow pencil or shadow.

Finally, use a liquid eyeliner to draw a heart on your nose, use a black lip liner to draw on whiskers, and apply some red lipstick to your lips. Oh, and don’t forget the blush!

24. Pink and Black Spider Webs
