Simple to Extravagant Ways to Apply Halloween Makeup

Written by: Nikki Tardibuono
Halloween is a great time of year to be crazy creative with making oneself up. You can do simple faces with makeup that you can purchase at any local party store. A simple face would include one such as Uncle Fester or Wednesday from Adams Family.  You can also get a bit more creative and use everyday makeup that comes in bright fun colors to replicate a famous painting such as “Callow Lily”.  Another idea for those that are daring, take a run to your local craft store and purchase some sequins or glitter and face glue using in conjunction with everyday bright colored makeup.  You can make yourself into a mermaid or an angelfish. If you want to go down the gore’ish road and portray yourself as a “bar fight” victim, you can use a more professional grade makeup line that can be purchased online such as Lastly, if you are pulling out all the stops and want to go all out, you can hire a professional makeup artist such as myself to turn you into a “walking zombie” or a “human sugar skull”.
Whether you are going au natural or going all out … have fun, be creative and have a very Happy Halloween!!
