The other day my husband called and asked if I wanted take the kids to a Halloween festival that night. Of course I do, but our costumes weren’t ready yet. So I had to think up something quick. I realized all the kids had skeleton pjs and I could do my makeup. We’d be a family of bones!! I turned to one of my friends at work and said, “guess what?! I’m going to make myself into a skeleton here in a bout 10 minutes”. Ok it took more like 20 min, but we didn’t have much time. I grabbed the lightest shade of foundation and two different black eyeliners and Wah Lah! I transformed myself into a spooky skeleton with only three products. It wasn’t until after I finished my makeup that I realized I still had to go pick up takeout. Oops!
Now you could get way more into this, and order some creepy contacts. Or actually use face paint that would allow you to be more detailed. But this post is to give you inspiration of some Halloween makeup you can easily whip up.
And this sugar skull the year before.
You really can’t mess up a skeleton. You can always smudge out the black and line over it. It ends up just looking like shading, and once all of the makeup is on it just seems to look good. I’m a pretty impatient person so I tend to rush through my own makeup. I’m normally doing it during naptime and I know I need to rush. My point is, don’t be intimidated, YOU CAN DO IT!! Here are some more ideas that could be pretty fun!
Have fun with it!! A little bit of hair spray and face paint can go a long way.
