6 Easy Halloween Makeup Tutorials 2021
Halloween always seems to creep up out of nowhere year after year. If you’re behind in planning a spooky look for your night, fear not — we’ve got you covered. Grab your makeup bag and keep reading because we’re rounding up six easy Halloween makeup tutorials that will help you pull off a last-minute costume, below.

Fairy Makeup Tutorial


Likely the easiest out of the bunch, this e-girl, fairy-inspired makeup tutorial requires little more than black liquid liner, faux freckles and a whole lot of blush. Just add fairy wings to finish off the look.

“Lion King” Scar Makeup Tutorial


Channel a classic childhood movie character with this Scar makeup tutorial. Just reach for a creamy black eyeliner, such as the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Wear Liner Stick in Pitch Black, to draw the nose and whisker details.

Glam Skull Makeup Tutorial


This skull makeup tutorial takes a little more time and patience to execute than some of the other looks on this list, but the results are well worth it. Face gems are a must for taking your costume from ghoulish to glam.

Mermaid Makeup Tutorial


Once you apply your foundation, contour with a purple eyeshadow, using fishnet tights to achieve a scale pattern. Finish with iridescent eyeshadow (we love the shades from the Urban Decay Naked Cyber Eyeshadow Palette) and a purple lip.

Evil Queen Makeup Tutorial


This makeup may look intricate, but it really only requires three products: black eyeshadow, red eyeshadow and a blood red lipstick. It’s the perfect mix of creepy and alluring.

5 Mini Makeup Tutorials


Still at a loss for what to be? We can’t get over Ashley Quiroz’s devil look in this compilation of five quick, easy Halloween makeup looks.
