Halloween is coming up and everyone will agree that the best part of the creepy day is the opportunity to dress up in weird and wonderful outfits. Whether it be something spooky or frightful the options are endless. No matter what you’re dressing up as no look is complete without the perfect makeup.
If you’re not keen on the whole dress up but want to get in on the fun, then a scary face will do the trick.
If you're looking for Halloween makeup ideas, check out beauty blogger and makeup artist, Lisa Fortuin’s Instagram page (@lisafortuin). Bloody eyes and zombie skulls are just a few looks Fortuin has created. Be warned, some of her looks are not for the faint hearted.
Here’s some advice from Fortuin on Halloween makeup looks:
Don't over complicate things when creating a look.
The best looks can sometimes be created with very simple makeup items and you don't have to spend a fortune on expensive materials.
“For the Rose look, I used cold glue and tissue to glue the rose to my head and then I covered it up with foundation to make it look like it was coming out of my skin. For the blood, I used liquid lipstick and red food colouring” explains Fortuin on how she created the look.
She adds that the beauty community has really stepped up its game when it comes to Halloween and there are so many incredible looks on Instagram that you can use to inspire your own Halloween makeup look this year.
