You've been so busy lately that you've forgotten that it's Halloween and that you're attending a glamorous costume party with your best friends. You’ve got the outfit down, but you don’t know what to do with your makeup! Don’t panic, because we have compiled three different makeup ideas that will instantly get you ready for any Halloween party - what’s even better is that this takes minimal time, effort, and products!
All these looks only require 4 products, which are an eyeshadow palette with neutral and bright colors, foundation (of course), mascara, and lipstick. Read below to find out how you can instantly turn into either a cat, an Egyptian queen, or a 1920s flapper!
Look 1: 1920s Flapper
The 1920’s was all about partying hard, and no one knew it best than flappers. These were women who wore gothic makeup with brightly embellished dresses, smoked and drank until the Sun rose, and danced like there was no tomorrow. They knew how to have a good time and how to look beautiful while doing it.
To go back in time, heavily apply your foundation because these women loved full coverage. That’s not just all you’re going to apply heavily, though! Using a fluffy shadow brush, take a dark eyeshadow (or go full black, if you want) and apply it all over your lids down to your lower lash line - take a smokey eye look and elevate it 10 times more. Apply coats and coats of mascara to get that doll-eyed effect, and use a dark lipstick on your pout and the apples of your cheeks to finish everything! Do you already want to dance the Charleston?
Look 2: Egyptian Queen
There are many versions on how to do Queen Cleopatra’s makeup, but the one that takes the cake is Elizabeth Taylor’s version where it perfectly balances sophistication, sultriness, and power.
If you think this makeup look is difficult to do, think again. All you will need is an HD foundation for a flawless base, a cool-toned eyeshadow to contour your cheekbones, black eyeshadow to overly draw your brows and eyeliner, coats of waterproof mascara, a nude lippie, and for the star of the show, lots and lots of teal eyeshadow. Basically, just emphasize everything and you will be ready to rule over any Halloween party you go to!
Look 3: Prowling Feline
Anyone who loves a good feline flick will love this look as it’s basically a cat eye, intensified. All you have to do to get this look under 15 minutes is to apply foundation where you only need it, use a rose lipstick as your blush, a black eye shadow to draw on the dramatic feline flicks, whiskers, and other cat details, fill in your brows with some neutral shadows, and top it off with some mascara! Quick, right? Don’t forget to blend things that need blending and you will be ready to meow in no time!
