How to do horror makeup at home?

You may not need as much equipment as you think for DIY horror makeup. If you want to do horror makeup at home then you can use face paint and other professional products or you can create easy scary Halloween makeup using eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lipstick. Most horror characters have spooky sunken eyes so make sure to heavily underline your eye with dark eyeshadow, contouring your face is perfect for creating skeletons, and using eyeliner to paint on a dramatic bat or cat design are all easy ways to create horror makeup at home. A deep red lipstick can double up as fake blood for those gory SFX makeup ideas.

Naturally, horror movie characters make great Halloween makeup looks. Whether you are looking for a possessed doll, a gory creature or a terrifying supervillain, you can either take inspiration from pop culture characters or create your own based on your favorite character.

To make sure your Halloween SFX makeup is movie screen quality complete your makeup with a pair of Halloween colored contact lenses. In our gallery, you will see which lenses have been paired with each horror movie character. Some of the choices are a near-perfect match to the film such as Darth Maul Contact Lenses but other times our affiliates have chosen to try something different such as Rainbowskinz’ Valak with Yellow Cat Colored Contacts.

Our affiliates get creative with their ideas and mash-up two characters into one look. This fun trend has created some amazing results so if you want to make a name for yourself as a horror makeup artist make sure to jump on this trend. So far we have seen Pennywise x Harley Quinn, Sam From Trick ‘r Treat x Mike Myers, and Pennywise x Beetlejuice.

When it comes to scary makeup, practice makes perfect so whatever level you are starting at, we hope you find inspiration from our amazing affiliates. Some are at the start of their SFX makeup journey while others are confident in fully re-creating a character’s face and even painting on clothing! We are immensely proud of every one of our affiliates and feel so lucky to be able to share so many incredible makeup looks with your featuring our colored contact lenses.
