Having the perfect Halloween costume is more than just clothes, masks, etc. You can really spice up a costume with a hue change to your skin, and a few changes to the focus with some makeup. Often Halloween makeup is what makes or breaks a costumer. The following are some great Halloween makeup ideas:
Clown Makeup: For the clown Halloween costume you can use Halloween makeup to enhance the costume and make your clown seem more realistic. First, you will want to paint your face white. Then, take some red and create some big red cheeks on your face. You will want to take a few colors that are bright, like green, yellow, etc. Take a sponge and paint a diamond around one eye. Then, take a black stick makeup and outline the shape around the eyes to make it look bolder. You can create a shape around the other eye, or add some extra color to the one you already painted. You can add glitter, gems, or other things using spirit gum to make the extra things stick.
Witch: For Halloween witch makeup ideas you will want to find a matte makeup that is cream based and green tinted. You will want to create some fake warts. You will want to use some black makeup to highlight areas and make your cheeks look sunken in, etc. Raisins attached to the face with gum spirit, and covered with makeup will look just like a wart. You can add hair to the wart by cutting out hairbrush bristles, and use super glue to attach them to the raisin.
Hobo: The next Halloween makeup idea is that of a hobo. For this you are going to use makeup to create bruises, dirt, etc. So, start by applying a matte makeup that will discolor the face some anyway. Then add some darker makeup, browns, blacks, some blues and greens. This will help make the bruises and dirt streaks that you apply look more realistic, aged, and right. You can add makeup junk into the hair and leaves, etc. to make you look more hobo-ish.
