Día de los muertos version of skeleton makeup

The skull inspired by the Mexican holiday Día de los muertos is very fashionable at the moment. To achieve it, it is important to color your complexion with an opaque white which will completely hide the natural complexion of your face.

The zombie effect

Dressing up as a zombie for Halloween remains a wise choice that always has an effect. But how best to achieve this type of makeup? Here are the steps to follow:

Pale your complexion

Without completely whitening your face, the important thing is that it appears paler to give it a translucent appearance. To do this, you can use a white foundation or a very light foundation in small doses. For an even more visible effect, you can also lightly whiten your hair using a white colored hairspray.

Darken your gaze

If in general, we try to hide our dark circles, for zombie makeup, it's quite the opposite. Conversely, we will darken his eyes by particularly accentuating the contour of his eyes with a smoky black. It is not necessary to redo your eyebrows or only very finely, this way it will highlight your eyes more. For a successful zombie makeup, lipstick is not necessary either , because we are looking to maintain a minimally colored face.

Add colored lenses

Bloody harlequin makeup

  2. Accentuate your eyes : with a black eyebrow pencil , highlight the shape of your eyes and give free rein to your imagination. You can draw geometric shapes, or even add red eye shadow.
  3. Play with colors : Don't hesitate to use the color red to make up your nose and mouth. Stretch the shape of your lips and add flecks of fake blood for an even more demonic look. Little tip, you can even accentuate the color contrasts even more by coloring your hair red and black.

Vampire makeup

Vampires and witches are the unmistakable characters of Halloween. You can also consider a vampire duo as a couple, or a mother-daughter witch duo , which is very fashionable at the moment. To achieve a successful make-up, here are some tips to follow:

Intensify your look

Vampire makeup is often characterized by an intense black look . You can opt for smoky-eye for a smoky effect, or draw a simple line of eyeliner to enhance your look.
