Halloween is here, which means you’re probably looking for Halloween makeup ideas. If that sounds like you, you’re in luck. In this post, I’m sharing cool Halloween makeup ideas for women.

I’m sharing everything from beginner to advanced makeup ideas. You’ll also find quick and easy ideas if you’re looking for a last-minute project.

If you’re using face paint, I recommend performing a skin test at least 24 hours before you apply the makeup to your face.

Style Your Hair First

Make sure you style your hair and put on your top (if it’s a pullover top) prior to applying your makeup. This will prevent you from messing up all of your hard work.

2. Deer Makeup

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?

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 the vaseline will help make the removal process easier.

4. Scarecrow with Hat

There’s something about a scarecrow that just screams Halloween. Maybe it’s the straw sticking out of their clothes or the eerie way they seem to stare at you, but whatever the reason, scarecrows make for excellent Halloween costumes.

Start with Thin Layers

If you’re placing different colors on top of one another, apply a thin coat of makeup at a time and let it dry completely before applying the next layer. This will ensure your makeup looks nice and neat.

6. Bats and Spiders

Whether you’re headed to a Halloween party or just looking to add a little festive flair to your daily routine, this fun and easy look will get you tons of compliments.

7. Wicked Witch of the West

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.

8. The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas tells the story of Jack Skellington, an inhabitant of Halloween Town who opens a portal to Christmas Town and decides to celebrate the holiday, with some dastardly and comical consequences.

Scarecrows are the perfect choice for beginners, as they offer a wide range of possibilities when it comes to both the design and execution of the look. Plus, there’s no need to worry about getting the proportions perfect – after all, scarecrows are supposed to be a little bit imperfect.

Watch Youtube Tutorials

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:

11. Retro Comic Book

If you’re stuck for ideas, why not take inspiration from your favorite comic book? With a little creativity, you can easily create a retro comics-inspired look.

12. Simple Cat Makeup

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!
