Scary Halloween Makeup

1. Skull Halloween Makeup

Skull Halloween makeup is one of the most classic Halloween looks to date. Halloween skeleton makeup never seems to go out of style. All you need to pull off this look is a makeup brush and some dark eye shadow. You can also use face paint if you want. But the key to this look is to get the main features of a skull: the teeth, and the hollow nose and eyes.

 

2. Wednesday Addams

The new Addams Family movie has made the family characters become more popular again. Wednesday Addams has always been a Halloween favorite. To get her look you’ll need black lipstick, black eyeliner all around your eyes, and dark eye shadow also all around your eyes. You can also use white baby powder, or a very light foundation to make yourself look pale like her.

 

3. Frankenstein

Draw suture lines to make it look like you’ve been patched together. You can paint your skin blue or green, and then you’ll want to get bolts to put on each temple. One way is to glue bolts onto the sides of a head band.

 

4. Bride of Frankenstein

Follow similar steps for the original Frankenstein, but since this is the female version you can add a dark lipstick and eye makeup.

 

5. Vampire Halloween Makeup

If you want to successfully accomplish the vampire Halloween makeup look then you can’t fail with the classic Dracula look. Get the classic Dracula look by slicking your hair back, powdering your face white and giving yourself dark eyes and lips. You can even add a painted on drizzle of blood from your lips to really make you look like a blood-thirsty immortal.

 

6. Zombie Halloween Makeup

The key to a great zombie costume is great zombie Halloween makeup. You want to use makeup to make your face look more dead. Make your eyes really dark and add dark shadow under your eyes. Contour the rest of your face with dark shadows to give yourself a sallow look, like you’ve just come back from the dead!

 

7. Headless

Detach your head from your body by painting your neck black! You can also use this look to be the headless horseman for Halloween.

 

8. Scarecrow

9. Half Face Halloween Makeup

The half face Halloween makeup look has been a popular scary look for a long time now. You can get really creative with it too! Right now the popular half face trend is to make half your face normal, and the other half a skeleton. But you can do a lot of other things with this idea too. For example, you could do a half happy face and half sad, or half normal, half werewolf etc.

Not So Scary Ideas

10. Mermaid Halloween Makeup

Mermaid Halloween makeup is a fantastic choice if you want to look glam instead of gory. Use a hair net over your face to create beautiful looking scales. All you do is place the hair net over your face and then powder blue makeup on the sides of your face and your cheekbones. This net will act as a scaly template.

 

11. Raggedy Ann Doll

Raggedy Ann is a beloved doll that is easy to recreate with some simple makeup tips. All you need is some red lipstick, and draw on some fake eyelashes with eyeliner. Then you can use the same red lipstick to put that classic triangle blush on your cheeks and nose.

8 Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas on a Budget

halloween costumes

Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time to start preparing the costumes. If you have multiple young children, dressing each of them up can be a chore, not to mention the hit you can take to your budget! Have you considered making the costumes yourself? It’s not as difficult as you might think.

Here are a few cheap Halloween costume ideas that can be put together in no time.

Hot-Air Balloon Costume

All you need to do for this cheap costume idea is buy some helium balloons from a local dollar store and let them do most of the work for the costume. Tie the balloon strings to a box and have your child stand inside the box.

If you have a light weight fabric blanket or plastic painter’s sheet you can even put it over the top of the balloons to give the illusion of one large canvas balloon, and just like that you’ve created a hot air balloon costume!

Alternatively, without the fabric cover this would also work as a costume for the house in “Up,” which can also be drawn on a cardboard box and worn by the child.

Ghost Costume

It is a rite of passage to celebrate Halloween as a classically depicted sheet-ghost. All you need for this cheap costume idea is a white sheet with holes for eyes and you’ve got a ghost. Add personality with a hat or other accessory. A simple but effective costume.

Chicken Costume

Dress your child up as their favorite barnyard animal with yellow clothes and yellow feathers. You can get the feathers from a local craft store. Strategically glue the feathers on the arms of their yellow shirt to create wings, and around the rest of the outfit as needed.

You can cut out a simple mask to wear or even just find a yellow cap. This costume has no sewing involved! Extra points if you find yellow or orange rain boots for feet.

Shark Costume

You won’t believe how simple and cheap this costume idea really is! To start, you just need grey sweatpants, a grey sweatshirt, and some white, black, and grey felt from a local dollar or craft store.

The felt will be cut into the shapes of a dorsal fin, eyes, teeth, and a stomach and/or gills. Glue them in the appropriate places (wear sweatshirt with hood up and glue the teeth sticking out of the hood), and you’ve got a shark!

Mickey (or Minnie) Mouse Costume

Disney has made it incredibly simple to dress up as their trademark characters. With hats and headbands sold online for the widely-recognized mouse ears, you can wear anything red, yellow, and black for Mickey, or red with white polka dots for Minnie!

Alternatively, you can make the ears out of felt and glue them to a head band. You can even use some face paint to complete the look if your child will facilitate the application process! Tip for Minnie; check search engine images for ways to style long hair into those trademark mouse ears!

Fairy Costume

A ballet outfit can double as a fairy outfit. Put a tutu and wings on over anything and you’ve created a magical fairy. Add a fairy wand for extra magic. Add glitter (“pixie dust”) liberally!

Kevin from Home Alone

Everyone’s favorite mischievous kid is Kevin from Home Alone. One of the easiest costume options available involves giving your blonde son a red sweater, and having him pose with his mouth open in a scream, hands on cheeks.

Everyone who’s familiar the movie will recognize the costume. Add to it with any accessories you may have on hand that are also featured in the movie and you have yourself a cheap costume idea that works.

Ghostbuster Costume

Creating a Ghostbuster costume is also easy. Start with a jumpsuit—it can be as simple as some dark pants with a shirt in a matching color, or you could use some work overalls. Use a painted box or large backpack for the ghost catcher, and accessorize the box as extravagantly or as simply as you like. You could use an old garden or vacuum hose.

Glue on a couple of Ghostbuster “patches” (use a search engine for images you can use to print or reference from) and you’re good to go! It doesn’t need to be a professional-level costume to be recognized for what it is.
 
You can save tons of money this year by using these cheap Halloween costume ideas and skipping the Halloween store all while creating something completely unique at home. Use these ideas to inspire Halloween costumes you’ll remember for years to come.
