Easy Beauty Hacks for Halloween

easy beauty hacks for your halloween costume

This Halloween is all about makeup! You can become virtually any character you want, from glamorous to horrifying, just using a bunch of products you likely already have on hand. So, get ready to get creative, crafty, and creepy, and try these easy, DIY makeup hacks for the best Halloween ever.

Fake Blood

No need to go buy fake blood from the costume store. Who knows what’s in that stuff anyway? Instead, there are a number of “recipes” for fake blood online. Try mixing a little red lipstick with black cream eyeliner and some clear lip gloss (use more red for fresh blood, more black for dried or deep wounds). There’s also a recipe that uses food coloring, cocoa powder and honey (yum!). Experiment to see what mixture gives you the most realistic look.

Scars and Wounds

If you want to create some scary scars or wounds, you can mix petroleum jelly with flour and a full-coverage foundation to create a fake skin paste that you can sculpt into raised scars, cuts or slashes. Add some of that fake blood in the center for an oozing wound effect. You can also create a similar damaged skin look using lash glue and torn up pieces of one-ply toilet tissue. Once you have the texture you want, you can lightly dab foundation over the top.


Nothing adds the creep factor quite like some bulging 3D veins. Using a very thin eyeliner brush, paint lash glue in a veiny looking pattern on your face, and then apply pieces of yarn over the glue to hold in place. Veins can be black, blue, red or whatever creepy color you prefer.

Spider Eye

You’ve probably heard of the cat eye, but have you ever tried a “spider eye”? There are a lot of pictures and tutorials that show how to achieve this unnerving look of a large spider scuttling over one eye. Your eyelid, up to the crease, can be defined as the body of the spider with some charcoal eye shadow, and then you can draw eight segmented legs with your favorite black liner. Add some white highlights to the legs for a 3D effect.

And So Much More!

Check out Instagram and YouTube for some inspiration as to what to be for Halloween, and how to achieve the look you desire. Whether you want to be a Bratz Doll, a Glam Zombie, a Deer, the Joker, or any other character from your favorite TV show or movie, you’ll likely find a tutorial that will guide you through the transformative process step-by-step.
