Hey there, guys! Welcome to day four of our first Seven days of Halloween! I was a little at a loss for what to do for Today’s post, until I spoke to one of my Barista friends over at Origin, she suggested that I do a side by side with a few tutorials! So like some of the amazing BeauTubers that I follow, I’m going to try to follow along with some Halloween Tutorials.
Now, keep in mind that are simple, by my figuring. I tried to pick things within my skill level and one of these I’ve been watching for years. So, let’s look over a Four selected Halloween makeup looks for those of us who waited until the last minute to figure out just what we are going to do with our face!
A little Catty
This one is the one that I mentioned watching for a while. It’s cute to me. I love cats, and really any animal, so this is right up my alley. If I didn’t have my costume and stuff picked out, I probably would have done something with this.
I found a tutorial on Pinterest, because that’s where I default to when my search is mainly for images. I found this gorgeous picture of a girl rocking this look, and decided it was my turn. It looks to me like it’s not too demanding, which makes it a great candidate to start with.
To mimic this look I used a black Kohl liner from [NYX], a liquid liner for the whiskers, Black Heart black Matte Liquid Lip, and the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette.
I feel like you could pretty much get away with wearing anything with this and call it a costume, from a full-body leopard suit to a little black dress.
My Worst Nightmare
When I was a little girl, I always had a fear of dolls and ventriloquist dummies. Something about them was always so unsettling and unnatural. Flat out Uncanny Valley and nightmare inducing little monsters. What better way to face my fears than by turning myself into one of these terrible things?
This is another one that I found on Pinterest, something about the way she deadpans into the camera just spooks me a bit, but it’s not too bad.
To get this look, I used that same Kohl liner, some red eye shadow from my Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette, White liquid liner from NYX, a White Kohl liner, Falsies from Ardell, and Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Porcelain, I finished it off with pink lips from TreStique!
With this one, to make it costume-y, I’d go with a suit looking ensemble. A white buttonup collared shirt and some black slacks should do fine!
Gonna Scare Some Crows Tonight
If you’ve ever been into plaid flannel shirts, you should have a few lying around. Which would make this totally unthreatening scarecrow an easy costume for you to throw together! I thought it was actually pretty cute. More like something you’d get from the Halloween Aisle to throw in a Kiddie maze than anything spooky. But, it’s still cool, regardless.
To pull off this look, I grabbed an orange face crayon from Walmart, that same black Kohl Liner, a black face crayon for the bigger areas, my Kiss Firery Faeries lashes and orange shadow from my Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette.
I did have to head to the store to grab a straw hat, for this, all in all I think it’s pretty cute. You can pretty much do any color flannel for this and make it look decent. Of course, I didn’t have the colored contacts, which I don’t feel like that hurts the look too much.
You Catch More Flies…
This last one is less costume and more for parties, if you feel like you’re too “grown up” to do anything colorful for Halloween. I really, really dig this look. It looks simple but requires a tiny bit of artsiness. I did make one change just for personal preference.
To recreate this look, I used my usual Kohl liner, MUA brow gel, Snow White Lip from Colourpop and my MAC cosmetics foundation in NC10 (if there was any doubt of how pale I am). I wanted to go with red to allude to a blood sucking spider, and I felt like most of these didn’t have enough color for me.
Since this one isn’t too much of a costume, I’m going to default on a black dress for this. Not a little black dress, mind you, but a slinky, long number like this. Really lean into that dark look, y’know. And since this one is monochromatic, I did edited mine to be b/w. I actually really like my deviation on the shadow!

Just a reminder that we’re open to guest posts in all of our categories, and I did just add beauty to the category list that you can view on the Submission Guidelines page!
I will admit I had a lot of fun trying to do these looks, at my current skill level I think I did decent. I need better white liners, for sure but my palettes appear to be up to snuff (with what I’ve spent on them, they’d better be!). I hope to up the ante next year and do some more complex things, I hope you’ll forgive for going kind of easy on myself this year! Also, this whole post was practice on putting on falsies, at this rate I’ll be a pro in no time!
We’ll see you tomorrow for our 5th post in the countdown!
