12 Easy Halloween Makeup Ideas Anyone Can Do!



Easy Halloween Makeup Ideas


Simple Halloween Makeup

These first Halloween makeup tutorials are simple enough for any beginner to give a try! We love the idea of using makeup to create your costume. It’s great for last minute parties or outings where you want to “Wow”, but didn’t think ahead to rent an elaborate costume. (Or plain and simple, didn’t want to spend the money on it!) When your face makeup does all the heavy lifting in your costume, what you wear is much less important.


Deer Halloween Makeup Ideas

One of the most popular costumes of the past couple of years has been the deer, doe or Bambi costume. It’s easy to do with makeup and a few props.

Check out this amazing one by ‘Keiko Lynn‘. She tells you exactly what brand and colors of makeup she used, but the most important part is the step by step photos and instructions. You can always substitute for cheap makeup for a one night look.


Kindly Unspoken‘ makes a sweet little deer costume easy with her super simple deer Halloween makeup tutorial. Remember, you can combine several techniques to get a look that’s totally unique to you.


Cat, Lion or Cheetah Halloween Makeup

We love ‘Twist Me Pretty‘ for her hair tutorials, but today she is showing us how to do Halloween cat makeup. She even takes it a step further and turns it into a leopard or cheetah, but you can stop at the cat if you choose.


Giraffe Makeup Tutorial

We are in love with this giraffe makeup from Nicole Renard via ‘Metiza‘. Such an easy Halloween costume! The buns make the little horns, and the rest is makeup and clothes of a warm orange, yellow or brown!
