What you will need:

  • White face paint
  • Black, red and white eye shadow
  • Black eye liner
  • Red lipstick
  • A sponge

1.) Apply a thin base layer of white face paint or white face make up with a sponge, which will help to avoid streak lines and will give an evenly-applied base layer.

2.) Using a dark or black eyebrow pencil, stencil along the eyebrow. A great way to create a smoother line is to use an eyebrow sponge and gently rub along the black line.

3.) For those dark smoky eyes, apply a cream/white base eye shadow to the eye lid from the lash to the brow. To shape the lid apply the black eye shadow along the crease of the lid.

4.) To add the spooky puppet line along the face, use the arch of the brow and follow the point down to the lashes and paint a black triangle on the lid of the lashes using black eye liner. At the tip of the triangle draw a line up to meet the eyebrow arch, continuing the line to half way between your hair line and brow.

5.) Using the black eye liner draw, an arched line from your closed eye which meets the start of your first upwards line on your eyelid.

6.) Time for those doll-like lips. Outline the cupid lip arch and the middle of the bottom lip with black eye liner. Fill in with a bright red lipstick.

7.) Using a pinky/orange lips stick draw a small circle on your checks to a give a bright doll effect blusher look.

For a finishing touch, this look would be great with thick false eyelashes and colour contacts to enhance this Halloween make up style.
