Tim Burton Makeup: Beetlejuice, Corpse Bride, Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton’s unique style of fantasy and Gothic has allowed him to produce many iconic movies that are watched as much now as when they were first released. This includes cult classics such as Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Nightmare Before Christmas, and Corpse Bride. He has ventured into musicals with Sweeney Todd and created the series, ‘Wednesday’.

Tim Burton makeup became a trend on social media after Tim Burton was questioned on the reason the majority of his characters are white. You can read more about it here.

Makeup artists have since proved that anyone can look amazing as a Tim Burton style character. Several of our affiliates took on this challenge with incredible results.

@ladyparadoxx is a fan of alternative fashion and loves to celebrate Halloween 365 days of the year making her a perfect candidate to be a leading lady in a Gothic Tim Burton movie. Here she is with Tim Burton makeup, White Coloured Contact Lenses, a witchy hat, and a gorgeous Gothic outfit. The finishing touch of her orange and black two tone hair has us calling the casting directors.

   

Similarly, @atarahmayhew has opted for White Coloured Contacts. She has focused on creating a full face of makeup, including clever contouring and the iconic Corpse Bride nose in this fantastic transformation. 

 

Our affiliates also love creating various Tim Burton film characters using our coloured contact lenses to create Tim Burton eyes. Beetlejuice is a particular favourite as it lends itself to fun makeup variations and has great sound bites to use for TikTok videos. Check out @hollymurraymakeup’s viral Beetlejuice transformation to get a taster.

If you want to create your own Beetlejuice look then you can become a Tim Burton makeup artist with this tutorial by @makeupmadhouse. Use the step by step video to complete your Halloween costume or cosplay.

   

For more Beetlejuice makeup inspiration, visit our blog to see how our affiliates created their Beetlejuice characters with different results. We especially love the inclusion of the Sandworm in some of these makeup ideas. Unlike most Tim Burton characters, you can switch it up from the classic White Coloured Contact Lenses to try our green eyes or even purple just like Holly. 

   

One of Tim Burton’s most popular movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas. Released in 1993, it is still just as popular all this time later. This movie offers plenty of opportunities to dress as different Gothic fantasy characters, perfect for themed parties or group cosplay. Jack and Sally give us couple goal costume ideas while we also love the cheeky trio Lock, Shock, and Barrel. If you are feeling particularly adventurous with your Nightmare Before Christmas makeup skills, Zero, Oogie Boogie, and the Mayor are fun tests for your SFX abilities. Check out our affiliates dressing as the NBX gang in our blog. Most of the characters suit White Coloured Contacts but characters such as Oogie Boogie give an opportunity to try fun alternative styles such as UV lenses.

   

The entrancing story of the Corpse Bride has divided fans. Victoria or Emily? Both are fun to cosplay but we often see more Corpse Bride makeup cropping up on our Instagram feed thanks to her unusual pale blue skin and skeletal features. Many makeup artists love to create Maggot too. We love the idea of turning this into a couple’s costume by including Victor. Check out our blog to see ideas for Corpse Bride costumes. For this look, our classic White Coloured Contacts will help you to emulate Emily’s eyes.

 

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street found its perfect match with Tim Burton. This sinister tale is a musical meets horror movie. With vast quantities of blood and gore combined with dark characters such as Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett, this is a great match for Halloween. Alternatively, you may be performing the musical and want to hone your Sweeney Todd makeup skills for the occasion. See costume makeup for Mrs Lovett and Sweeney Todd in our blog. While some of our affiliates have opted for white coloured contact lenses, enhancing your natural eye colour or making them darker with black coloured contacts are great options.

We have more Tim Burton makeup to come so keep an eye out for blog posts of our affiliates dressed as Wednesday characters and Edward Scissorhands characters. We can’t wait to share more with you as Tim Burton characters are always a hit for Halloween or fancy dress parties.
