Ghoulish glam Halloween makeup tutorial inspired by Monster High

If you’re looking for a Halloween makeup look that is the perfect blend of ghoul and glam, a Monster High doll is where it’s at. Like a spooked-out Bratz doll, Monster High characters are like gothic barbies with almost anime-like faces. There are tons of them to choose from, from vampire to venus fly trap to skeleton. I chose Elissa Bat because I love purple and her fangs.

Directions:


Step 1.

Being that Elissa Bat is a cartoon, her eyebrows are much higher and thinner than mine. I am going to essentially erase my brows and draw new ones on. The first step of this is to apply several coats of glue stick, letting it dry in between coats.

Step 2.

With a white liner pencil, go over brows to lighten them up if they are dark like mine.

Step 4.

Mix white and purple cream colors together to create the perfect lavender complexion. 2 parts white, 1 part purple should do. Using a makeup wedge, stipple the color all over your face.

Step 5.

Step 7.

With your white liner pencil, extend your eye shape below your lower lash line for a more cartoon-like appearance. The Monster High dolls all have very large eyes.

Step 8.

Step 9.

Cover your eyelid with a matte purple shadow, filling in the upper part of the eye shape and blending the color past it.

Step 10.

Apply light false lashes on the faked-out lower lash line you created earlier.

Step 11.

Step 12.

Apply top lashes and mascara. The more piecey the lashes, the more cartoon-like.

Step 13.

Step 14.

Step 15.

With a cotton swab, wipe away lip color in 2 triangular shapes on your lower lip.

Step 16.

For a finishing touch, use your matte purple shadow to add some contouring. Create more rounded doll-like cheekbones and a smaller, more heart-shaped jawline.

Step 18.
