How to become Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn for Halloween with awesome makeup

The DC Comics series is iconic and classic, full of various interpretations over the years. With the upcoming release of the film Suicide Squad, we are about to see another take. One of the DC Sirens is Harley Quinn, formerly Dr. Harleen Quinzel and linked to the Joker. Her devilishly cute and creepy clown smile is easy to replicate and you’ll feel pretty badass at the same time.

You will need:

  • Black and white cream colors
  • Translucent powder
  • Black pencil and liquid eyeliners
  • Black matte eyeshadow
  • White matte eyeshadow
  • Mascaras
  • Matte red liquid lipsticks

Directions:
