Halloween Makeup Ideas - Give Your Costume that Extra Edge

Are you seeking inspiration for Halloween makeup ideas?

Make up can give your costume the edge it needs to portray the image you are looking for. It makes an impression, a statement, sometimes the deciding factor that makes the difference.

Make up says what clothes cannot, such as: I'm so wicked I have turned a vile green. Without added color, the creativity of our costume lacks ingenuity.

Many people are afraid of the make up thinking they are not capable of applying it, etc. But if you keep a few things in mind, then anyone can create a top notch scar across his / her cheek.

The number one rule for Halloween makeup ideas is not making the decision to use it the day of the party or other Halloween event. Plan ahead and get all the things you will need ready for the big moment; and next, give yourself plenty of time - you may need to run to the store again.

Everybody loves Sally, the ragdoll from A Nightmare before Christmas. Once you have got your costume in place, apply white foundation make up all over your face, then go over it again with a thin layer of silver. This will give a grayish look to the skin while still allowing the make up to appear shimmering. If you use a black eye pencil, you can draw a few stitches on your face to create her look, which can be finished up with black lipstick.

Another Halloween makeup idea is zombies, which will always be in style, and the best thing about this costume is you are the interpreter of the ideal look of the dreaded undead. They have been portrayed having green, grey, black-blue or white skin, so only your imagination is the limit.

Add some blue, red, black, green and / or white makeup or body paint to finish the look with dark circles about the eyes, perhaps some bruising, and sunken cheeks. You have to figure these guys can be in any of a dozen decaying phases.

When it comes to Halloween makeup ideas, vampires are another tried and true favorite, and it is an easy one requiring as little as some black and white body paint. Fangs are cheap and so is black or ruby red lipstick, or even fake blood dribbling down your chin. And don't forget to line your eyes with black for that glassy-eyed glare of theirs. For hair, the sleek look is most popular but does not have to be adhered to.

Need more Halloween makeup ideas? Both he and she devils can dress in red body suits (tights, sweaters, red pants). Red shoes would go well with the red hot theme - perhaps high heels for the woman. Rub white or very light make up over the face and use plenty of black around the eyes.

Again, for the woman, apply eye make up in a very feminine and alluring fashion as well as consider fake eye lashes. While a man would not want to use lipstick, the woman would want to carry the red - somewhat dark, to her lips. For that extra extravagant look, dab them with glitter and consider it for the hair as well.

Are you looking forward to using any of the above Halloween makeup ideas?
