Scary halloween makeup for guys
Halloween is a great time to wear something unique and fancy, and of course, you will need an equally cool makeup to complement your look. And, this is not only about the witches but also about the wizards. When searching for men’s Halloween makeup, you might come across a lot of complicated stuff. Don’t worry as we’ve got you covered. From easy to elaborate and from funny to scary Halloween makeup ideas for men, we’ve got it all. Without keeping you on your toes any longer, here’s how you can take your male Halloween makeup up by a notch and get into the trick-or-treating spirit.
1. Vampire makeup male–
Create the famous vampire makeup male look by applying your base makeup as usual. Add a dramatic definition to your men’s Halloween makeup by using a contour stick on the hollows of your cheeks, nose and jawline. Blend it well so that your face makeup doesn’t look cakey. For your eye makeup, begin by applying black eyeshadow on your upper lid and apply red eyeshadow or creamy lipstick on your lower lid. Then, use a flat angled brush to create streaks of red tears running down from your eyes with red lipstick. For the lips, apply maroon lipstick and don’t miss to create streaks of blood running down from your mouth to achieve an intense vampire inspired men’s Halloween makeup. If you wish to go for a deeper and more dramatic look, fake some cuts or bruises on your neck with the lipstick and draw long teeth on the corner of your mouth with a pencil eyeliner.
2. Devil makeup male–
For achieving this look, start by keeping the base as usual. Then, add colour to your face makeup with blush and enhance your natural radiance by using a highlighter on the bridge of your nose and cupid’s bow. To pull off the perfect evil devil, create a smokey eye look using kajal and follow it up by smudging red lipstick on your eyelids and your lower lids. This will help you get the ideal blood red-eyes effect. Next, use waterproof mascara to add volume to your eyelashes. If you like bold eyebrows, this is the right time. Complete your eye makeup by shaping your brows with an eyebrow pencil. Make your men’s Halloween makeup stand out by picking the deepest, darkest eyeshadow to fill in your lips and smudge it on the outside. Coat it with a lip balm to bring that shiny and glossy effect. If you wish to go a step ahead, you can paint your face red and style your look with accessories such as devil horns and more.
3. Ghost makeup male–
Begin your male Halloween makeup by prepping your face with the basics as you always do. When thinking of ghost makeup, you will need a white base and to do so, you can use white paint all over your face. To create a scary effect, follow the men’s Halloween face paint by faking excessive dark circles around your eyes. Use the black eyeshadow on your lower lids and create streaks of black tears with an eyeliner. Give yourself the perfect finish by lining your lips with a bold kajal and applying the darkest brown lipstick. Use the same kajal to overdraw your lips and create a sealed lip effect. To look the best from the rest, sprinkle the powder on your hair.
Make sure that you don’t miss applying your base makeup to ace any of the Halloween makeup ideas for guys. The first step of your men’s Halloween makeup should be using a primer to create a smooth base that keeps your makeup in place all day. Then, apply foundation to create an even complexion and banish the blemishes with a concealer.
