Don’t be scared to get creative with your Halloween makeup look. Stand out from every witch and cat in the crowd with three of-the-moment makeup ideas – unicorn, mermaid, and galaxy girl. No (Halloween) tricks here – only treats in the form of simple, DIY makeup tricks for easily recreating the looks.
Uncover A Unicorn Look:
STEP 1: Highlight. Swipe the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Cosmic Pink across the length of the cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, just above the cupid’s bow and a smidge on the jawline.
STEP 2: Create the unicorn lid. Coat lids with the lighter side of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Cool Ivory. Next, use the lighter end of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Shady Violet to add dimension to the crease. Gently blend the colors. Finish with a subtle highlight along the brow bone again using the light end of Cool Ivory.
STEP 3: Double-line the upper lash line. Draw a thin line across the lid with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party, then draw a thick line using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Intrepid Teal right above it, flicking it out at the corner of your eye.
STEP 4: Top off the statement unicorn eye makeup look with a coat of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Black.
STEP 5: Finish by mixing the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Lipcolor in Violet Twist and Lilac Lust together for a purple-hued unicorn-inspired lip.
Master A Mermaid Look
STEP 1: Create the scales first. Press a pair of fishnet stockings onto the forehead and go over it with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Astro Blue and the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Mint Detox. Do the same on cheeks.
STEP 2: Create the mermaid statement eye. Use blue shade from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in BRB Blue to paint your lid. Then fill in the crease with the darker green shade followed by the gray side to highlight the brown bone and inner corner of the eye. Use the light green shade to add dimension to the under-eye along the lower lash line.
STEP 3: Add eyeliner. Line your upper lash line with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party and follow it up with a touch of Intrepid Teal.
STEP 4: Top it all off with a coat of t L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Cobalt.
STEP 5: Finish with lipstick. Embrace ocean waves by applying L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Lipcolor in Navy Spy. Blot the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Lipcolor in Domineering Teal in the center of lips for an ocean ombré.
Glow Like A Galaxy Girl
STEP 1: Highlight, highlight, highlight. Swipe the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Astro Blue anywhere that light would naturally hit. Think: your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, the center of your chin, and a touch along your collarbones.
STEP 2: Apply lipstick. To add some serious allure to your galaxy makeup look, paint your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Lipcolor in Lilac Lust.
STEP 3: Highlight your lips. Once your lipstick dries, highlight the center of your lips and your cupid’s bow with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Astro Blue.
Finish With a Pop of Hair Color: Add a pop of temporary color to hair using the new L’Oréal Paris Colorista Sprays. From rose gold and pastel blue to hot pink, the sprays offer instant hair color transformation to complement any Halloween look. Just spray and wash out once the night ends.
