Fall is officially here—and you know what that means: It’s time to get your Halloween costume in order! This year, you’ve got plenty of trendy ideas to inspire you—and we’ve got you covered with super-fun Halloween makeup tutorials that’ll have you standing out from every witch and cat in the crowd. Keep reading for three of-the-moment Halloween makeup ideas—unicorn, mermaid, and pop art—along with step-by-step instructions for creating each look.
You’ve likely seen unicorn makeup just about everywhere recently—so it makes sense that it’d be one of the most popular Halloween makeup choices for 2017. Create a mythical unicorn makeup look by following the steps below.
Step 1: Highlight. Swipe the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Cosmic Pink across the length of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, just above your cupid’s bow and a smidge on your jawline.
Step 2: Create your unicorn lid. Coat your lid with the lighter side of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Cool Ivory. Next, use the lighter of end of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Shady Violet to add dimension to your crease. Gently blend the colors. Finish your lid off with a subtle highlight along your brow bone again using the light end of Cool Ivory.
Step 3: Double-line your upper lash line. Draw a thin line across your lid with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party, then draw a thick line using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Intrepid Teal right above it, flicking it out at the corner of your eye.
Step 4: Accentuate your lashes. Top off your statement unicorn eye makeup look with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Black.
Step 5: Paint your pout. Mix the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Lipstick in Violet Twist and Lilac Lust together for a purple-hued unicorn-inspired lip.
Do you consider yourself a beach babe? Then hop on the mermaid bandwagon with this Halloween makeup look, which features gorgeous shades of blue.
Step 1: Create your scales. Press a pair of fishnet stockings onto your forehead and go over it with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Astro Blue and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Mint Detox. Do the same on your cheeks.
Step 2: Create your mermaid statement eye. Use the blue shade from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in BRB Blue to paint your lid. Then fill in your crease with the lighter darker green shade from Mint Detox. After that, use the gray side from BRB Blue to highlight your brow bone and inner corner of your eye and the light green shade from Mint Detox to add dimension to your under-eye, right along your lower lash line.
Step 3: Add eyeliner. Line your upper lash line with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party and follow it up with a touch of Intrepid Teal.
Step 4: Apply blue mascara. Top it all off with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Cobalt.
Step 5: Finish with lipstick. Embrace ocean waves by applying the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips in Navy Spy. Blot the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips in Domineering Teal in the center of your lips for an ocean ombré.
If you love comics and wish your life could fit into the pages of your favorite graphic novel, this Halloween makeup tutorial is for you. Just don’t forget the bright yellow wig!
Step 1: Paint your pout. Fill in your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Lipstick in DIY Red. Then, draw a line within the edge of your upper lip with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in White Party and do so on the opposite side of your lower lip as well.
Step 2: Draw on a cat eye. Create a cat eye along your upper lash line using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party. Follow up with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Black.
Step 3: Bring your pop art eye makeup to life. Extend the line out past the inner corner of your eye using the dark end of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Mistress Noir. Then line your lower lash line and create tear drop shapes under your eye. Fill them in with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Electric Blue and yellow end of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Jet Set Blond.
Step 4: Move on to your face makeup. Swipe the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Galaxy Gold across your cheekbones, blending it in with your fingers. From there, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party to draw a line in the same place that you’d normally contour the hollows of your cheeks. Then draw another line along the edges of your jawbone, as well as down one side of the bridge of your nose. Draw your last black line in a small arch just under your lip to add poppy prominence to your chin. Finally, use the white end of Jet Set Blond to draw polka dots between the black lines on your jawbone and cheekbone.
