With Halloween only a couple of weeks away, you’re probably planning out your costume and that, of course, includes makeup. There are plenty of tutorials and inspirational ideas all over social media, but today I’ll be sharing some ideas from TheSoul Publishing. TheSoul Publishing’s new 123 GO! YouTube channel shares a video of crazy unique SFX makeup ideas that are sure to be a hit at any Halloween party. You might not even need a costume to go with them!
- Scare the crowd by creating a monstrous look! Using black makeup, smoke your eyes and shade your lips. Then, outline your mouth using tissue and costume glue for the 3D effect of a larger mouth. For the teeth, cut fake press on nails into a sharper form and stick them on. Blot on some blood on your face and drip some around the mouth. If this doesn’t scare people at your Halloween party, we’re not sure what will!
- Thinking of an underwater theme? Turn your fingers into tentacles! Using makeup clay, wrap each finger and create a long and pointy look. Create multiple circle shapes to add as the suction of the tentacles. Then use a foundation to match the clay to your skin tone and you’re all set!
- Looking for something scary but not too extreme? Create an open wound on your face! Wet a piece of tissue on your face and tear it to your liking to create the shape of an open wound. Then, using makeup glue, dab it over the tissue and wait for it to dry. Hide the tissue by blending in a foundation that matches your skin tone and set it with a setting powder. Lastly, fill in the wound with fake blood and dab it around the edges. Elevate your look by using a creepy set of contacts.
