Halloween Makeup Tips, Without Buying New Products

Halloween is the best time of the year for makeup junkies to go all out, doing any kind of makeup which you can't normally wear. While other beauty bloggers trying to recommend to you what product to buy, I am trying to encourage you NOT TO BUY new products (makeup brands going to hate me for this). I've checked, a bottle of face paint can cost up to RM60 per color. Is it worth it to spend the money for just a few hours event?



Tips #1 - You don't need white face paint
Use foundation which is three shades lighter than your skin tone to get that pale-ghost effect. Borrow it from your fair skin friend. Alternatively, use any foundation/BB cream/CC cream/face primer, then dust a matte white eyeshadow on top. It will give you a pale skin.

Tips #2 - You don't need a black face paint
Gel liner solves everything. Unless you're painting the entire face black, then go for a black face paint. Even that, you can put on your normal foundation, and set it with black eyeshadow. That will create a "black face". Ultimately, you can use gel liner to draw the outline.

Tips #3 - You don't need scar wax
Use eyelash glue to create texture scar. Layer it until you get that desired scar. UHU glue works too!

Tips #4 - You don't need fake blood.
A bottle of fake blood cost about RM50. Why pay when you can create it out of lipstick and baby oil. Cut a little bit of your red lipstick for the pigment, dilute it with baby oil. Keep adding the lipstick or baby oil until you get the texture that you want. To create splatter effect, use old tooth brush by rubbing the bristles.


Last weekend, my housemate and I did a little project for Halloween. It was really impromptu decision. I was already going to take my afternoon nap when she suggested we play with our makeups. We use whatever products we have. This is the result.....


Christine is the daughter ghost and I'm mother ghost. To see her makeup upclose, go to her blog Little Blue Haven. And here's mine, with special editing...


The main products that I use for this look are:

Inglot eyeshadow - gray 348, dark brown 329, black 63 and white 373(for the eyes and contouring)
NYX pencil liner
MAC Blacktrack gel liner
NYX red lipstick in Chaos (for the blood)
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (for white hair)

What are you going to dress up for Halloween?
