Annabelle makeup has been popular during the Halloween season since the doll first hit the movie theatres. This creepy doll is perfect for Halloween as you can DIY your own costume and practice your SFX makeup skills. To create your Annabelle costume you will need a lacey white dress with a red sash, painted porcelain doll face or mask, braided hair or wig and dolly eyes. Changing your eye colour to a bright unnatural shade is essential to any doll costume but in particular, Annabelle costumes.
Annabelle is usually shown with yellow or blue eyes but in our opinion, it is more about the effect than the colour. Enhancing your eyes to make them look round and shiny will give you a dolly eye look that is enough to terrify the most hardened horror movie fans. Here are some of our top picks for Annabelle contact lenses:
- Angelic Coloured Contact Lenses - Available in blue, yellow, green and white; these lenses have a black limbal ring to create a dolly eye design.
- Manson Coloured Contact Lenses - Available in blue, green, orange, white, and black; these lenses have a contrasting limbal ring and vibrant pigment for a creepy horror effect.
- Blue Coloured Contact Lenses - Styles such as Aqua Blue Ice Walker, Blue Super Sky, Blue Elf, Aqua Mermaid, and Blue Shiva offer a bright costume blue tone that is perfect for Halloween doll costumes.
