The easiest way to transform your face into a werewolf is by using makeup. You can look like a wolf, a werewolf with human skin and other types of wolves using these tips.
If you want to look like a wolf with human skin, then you should use blue eyeshadow on your eyelids and eyelashes. Use brown or black eyeshadow for the outer corners of your eyes and use white or yellow eyeshadow for the inner corners of your eyes. You can also add some shimmery silver or gold glitter to the center of your eyelids.
If you want to look like a werewolf with human skin, then you should use blue eyeshadow on your eyelids and eyelashes as well as some light grey eyeshadow above your eyebrows. Use brown or black eyeshadow for the outer corners of your eyes and use white or yellow eyeshadow for the inner corners of your eyes. You can also add some shimmery silver or gold glitter to the center of your eyelids.
If you want to look like an ordinary wolf, then use dark blue eyeshadow on both sides of your lids as well as some dark greenish-brown shadows around them too!
Makeup for werewolf face
Everyone knows werewolves come out once a month, triggered by the rising of a full moon. So when the moon is right in the middle of a waxing and waning gibbous, it’s time to lock the windows and doors if you’re a Lupophobe because that moon’s hitting maximum fullness. The history of the terrifying sickness/curse that morphs a human into a wolf is well-tread territory in movies and books, and has folkloric origins dating back to the Middle Ages. Stock up on silver if you’re wondering how to defend yourself, or follow the old adage “can’t beat ’em, join ’em” and shapeshift into the supernatural beast on your own and you don’t even have to wait for the full moon.
As a costume idea, werewolf gets extra points for ease since you can wear regular clothes. We think the look is more convincing if you take some scissors to the clothes for that freshly transformed rugged appearance. Fangs, ears, beast hands and a wig can help you finish the look. And of course a little fake blood to show your, uhmm… love for meat!

To make this look even more extra, pop in yellow contacts.
Lay down white eyeshadow on the lower, inner corner of each eye as a little downward swoosh.
Using black, line under the white swoosh, along the lash line and taper past the lash line toward the temple.
Cover the upper lid with black shadow.
Blend and soften the line under each eye with black shadow.
With a fluffy brush add more black shadow to the upper lid and blend the edges until very soft.
Add a little white shadow just under the out brow and blend.
With a giant fluffy brush, add contour with a brown shadow under the cheekbones, on the temples and under the jawbone and chin.
Blend very well.
Brush your brows upward using clear mascara.
Lay down a line along each side of the nose from the brows to the tip of the nose.
Use a brush and a bit of shadow to soften the lines along the side of the nose. Leave the bridge of the nose free of any shadow.
Add black shadow underneath the tip of the nose and along the bottom edges of the nostrils then down onto the cupid’s bow.
Use a light brown liner and loosely add hair-like lines over the contour on your cheeks and temples.
With the same technique add a widow’s peak at the center of your hairline.
Use a darker brown liner to add bushiness to your brows with small upward lines over your natural brows.
With the darker liner add another layer of hairs to the widow’s peak.
Add another layer of hairs with the dark brown liner over the contour on your cheeks and temples.
Finish the eyes with black liner on the upper lash line, extending and tapering it inward toward the nose.
Paint a thin line on the middle of the cupid’s bow from the black nose to the top of the lip.
Paint in the entire lip with burgundy red lipstick.
Apply a set of fangs of your choosing according to package instructions.
