Halloween is a fantastic opportunity to explore daring and striking makeup looks. However, if you prefer a more elegant and understated approach to Halloween costumes, you can use the products from your everyday makeup collection to create a simple yet classy Halloween makeup look. Whether you opt for cat or mouse Halloween makeup, or decide to try out the spider web makeup, achieving these looks is quick and easy.
Spider Web Makeup Steps
Prep the Face
Before diving into the spider web makeup look, it’s important to even out your skin tone. Begin by applying La Base Pro Primer to prime your skin. This will create a smooth canvas, helping your makeup to last longer. Next, choose a shade of Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation that matches your skin tone and apply it using either a brush, your fingers, or a sponge, depending on your desired coverage. This foundation offers a flawless, natural matte finish, providing up to 24 hours of full coverage without feeling heavy or cakey.
If needed, use Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer to add extra coverage to areas such as under the eyes, blemishes, and areas of discoloration or redness. For added glamour and definition, apply Dual Finish Highlighter to the highest points of your face, focusing on the cheekbones and the tip of your nose.
Create the Spider Web Eye Makeup Look
Instead of simply drawing a web with eyeliner, you can incorporate eyeshadow and color into your makeup look. Start by experimenting with shimmering eyeshadows to bring light and color to your eyes. This will add an extra layer of glam to your Halloween makeup.
- Begin by applying Prime It Boost It Eyeshadow Primer to the eyelids. This step is vital to ensure the longevity of your eye makeup, prevent creasing, and intensify the color of your eyeshadows.
- Once the eyeshadow primer has set, use a small crease brush to apply a small amount of Color Design Eyeshadow in the shade Camel to contour the creases of your eyes. Blend the shade well into the crease and smudge it along the lower lash line for a subtle shadow.
- Use a combination of brushes and your fingertips to create a shimmering purple eyeshadow look with Hypnôse Palette in Reflet D’améthyste. Apply the middle shimmering lilac shade onto your eyelids with your fingertips for intense color payoff.
- With a small brush, blend the second darkest purple shade over the outer third of your eyelids. Smudge a small amount of this shade along the lower lash line to add definition to your eyes.
- Using a small pencil brush, apply the darkest shade in the palette into the crease of your eyes and along the lower lash lines.
- Add highlight and shimmer to your eyes by applying the lightest shimmering shade to the inner corners. This will provide a beautiful highlight and make your eyes appear larger.
- Line your lower waterline with Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade Erika F. This pale shimmering shade will tie all the eyeshadow shades together for a cohesive look while adding shimmer to the waterline and making your eyes appear bigger.
Draw the Spider Web Eyeliner
After creating a stunning eyeshadow look, it’s time for the most crucial part – the spider web effect. Use Drama-Liqui Pencil Eyeliner to ensure your spider web makeup lasts throughout all your Halloween festivities without smudging or fading. This long-wearing and waterproof formula can last up to 24 hours.
- Start by lining the upper lash line with a winged eyeliner shape. Extend the eyeliner into the inner corner of your eyes, following the shape of the tear duct. This will elongate your eyes and create a more dramatic effect.
- Carefully draw your spider web eyeliner. Begin by drawing a cluster of small lines and then connect them together with longer lines to form a spider web shape. It may be helpful to refer to an inspiration picture while creating this design.
- Once you’ve finished your spider web eye makeup, complete the look with one to two coats of Monsieur Big Volumizing Mascara. This mascara is formulated to give lashes up to 12 times more volume than natural lashes, providing a bold and dramatic false lash effect. For even more dramatic lashes, try layering Cils Booster XL Lash Primer underneath.
When it’s time to remove your Halloween makeup, use a good waterproof makeup remover like Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover.
Add the Finishing Touches to your Spider Web Makeup Look
To ensure your spider makeup look lasts all evening, spritz your face with Fix It Forget It Setting Spray. This lightweight makeup setting spray helps to increase the longevity of your makeup, leaving your skin hydrated and shine-free for up to 24 hours, making it perfect for Halloween parties.
For the lips, apply Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shade 274. This deep warm brown with subtle red tones complements the purple eyeshadow and dramatic eyeliner without overpowering the look.
