3 Halloween Makeup Ideas Perfect for your Zoom Party

October 27, 2020

Halloween looks a bit different this year, but we can still celebrate! With so many of us taking to Zoom for virtual Halloween parties and celebrations this year I wanted to share 3 Halloween makeup ideas. Since we’re not in-person this year, full costumes won’t pack the same wow-factor but makeup still will! These are three makeup looks that beginners can do, so it’s accessible to everyone. I’ll talk about each of the three below but for an even more detailed look, be sure to head to my instagram stories and look under my “Halloween” highlight – I’ve posted full step by step video tutorials for each look.

Leopard Makeup:

This Halloween makeup look is my favorite as far as pay-off. What I mean by that is that it has the ‘wow that looks so impressive’ look while actually being really easy to do!

To create this leopard makeup look start by applying your normal foundation, and cover up your lips in the process. Give yourself dramatic eyes with some brown/neutral shades and cat eye eyeliner (I swear by this liquid liner since it’s easy to use). Also use a pencil liner on the bottom lid. Add some dramatic false lashes.

For your face, use contour to create a dramatic line down your nose and color in along your cheeks. Use white eyeshadow on your upper lip. You can also use white Halloween cream makeup, but I like the more subtle look of white eyeshadow.

Next up – the lip! Use a black pencil liner on your nose and to cover your upper lip. Add some dots to the white shadow as whisker markers.

Finally, the leopard spots. These are so easy! Crate parenthesis shapes at random all of your forehead and temples. Don’t worry about being too precise, it looks better when they’re slightly different sizes and shapes. Finally, fill in the oval shape between the parenthesis with brown shadow.

Mermaid Makeup:

The dramatic makeup and hair of this mermaid costume is perfect for a virtual Halloween party! Let’s start with makeup:

Do your foundation as you normally would and then pick a color palette you want to go with (purples, greens or blues work best). Give yourself eyeshadow in your primary color. Don’t forget to line the eyeshadow under your bottom lid as well. Pop on some dramatic flash lashes.

For your scales, you’re going to get a pair of fishnet tights and put them over your head. You read that right lol. This trick works SO well for scales, but you do need to make sure you are holding the fishnets so they are tight. If they move around at all you won’t get the scales effect.

Take your primary eyeshadow color (the one you used on your lids) and start applying it over the fishnets along your cheeks and temples. You’ll also do your chin and jawline at the end (just hold the fishnets over those spots). As you go over the space on your cheeks and temple switch up different shadow colors to create a gradient look.

Add in some rhinestones- use eyelash glue to hold them one if the sticker part isn’t holding well.

Lastly, apply nude lipstick (this one is the most beautiful beige lip color and so affordable) and top with a shimmery or holographic gloss.

Sugar Skull Makeup:

For my final makeup look I wanted to do something a bit spookier. This sugar skull is spooky but still fun, and not that hard to do!

Start by covering your face in white cream makeup. Make sure you let it fully dry before you put any other makeup on! Once dry use a black pencil liner (or black halloween makeup) to cover your whole eye socket including your brows. Then cover the tip of your nose and create lines for your mouth. Add in any pattern/decoration you can think of on your forehead and above/below your eyes.

Finally, add red lipstick and red rhinestones!
