Our affiliates are here to show you the Frankenstein makeup trend which involves painting different color sections with stitches between each section. Some SFX makeup artists add prosthetics and fake blood while other MUAs prefer a precise and bold body paint style. Check out our lookbook of Frankenstein makeup designs below.
@ssipe_’s Bride of Frankenstein makeup has an elaborately styled wig that looks like a grand headdress. This paired with the precise makeup style gives a sophisticated edge to this Frankenstein makeup. If you love glam Halloween makeup then this is the design to try. The clever black lining gives this makeup the look of a piece of art or a comic book character. @ssipe_ has chosen the White Lestat and Green Goblin colored contact lenses for this makeup. The idea of using two different colors of lenses ties in perfectly with the stitched-up style and story of Frankenstein’s monster.
@sfx_by_bry has titled her look ‘Frankenbabe’ and she slays in this gorgeous Frankenstein makeup. For this look, she is wearing a simple wig with white streaks which could equally be achieved by adding temporary color to your own hair. @sfx_by_bry has chosen different shades of green in this Frankenstein makeup as made famous by the 1930s films. The bold red lip matches the red scars that connect each section. This is paired with stitches, made to look 3D by adding a small fleck of white paint and shading. The final touches are bolts to the side of the head and colored contact lenses. For this design, Bry has chosen the Yellow Louis and White Halloween Colored Contact Lenses.
@nicolleslooks has blended a witchy style with her Frankenstein costume by adding a black witch hat and a long wig. She has added pieces of string to her makeup for the stitches as well as painted fake blood along each line for a gory twist. For this look, @nicolleslooks is wearing the Red Crazy Clown and Grey Storm Cloud Lenses.
@rubymediamakeup has created a glam version of the iconic movie version of Frankenstein’s monster. Before applying her green makeup, she uses Frankenstein prosthetics to create the stitching and prosthetic bolts.
