VIDEO: The Insta-friendly neon skull Halloween makeup to try this year

October 24th 2020 / 0 comment

Forget drawn on whiskers, this year we all want to be neon skeletons for Halloween

We may only be allowed out until 10pm this Halloween, but that certainly doesn't mean we're dialling back our spooky look; this year we're going all out with our Halloween makeup recreating this surprisingly easy Halloween makeup tutorial by Danielle Roberts, global makeup artist for Urban Decay.

You will need:

Urban Decay Primer Potion, £11
Urban Decay Wired Palette, £23.40
Urban Decay Wired 24/7 Eye Pencil 24/7 in Vivid, £16
Urban Decay Perversion Waterproof Eyeliner, £19
Urban Decay Lash Freak Mascara, £21
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, £26
Urban Decay Stay Naked Threesome, £27

Step 1: Appy eyeshadow primer all over your lids and follow with warm orange and neon pink eyeshadow and line the waterline with a vivid blue eyeliner pencil.

Step 2: Repeat on your other eye with contrasting colours - Danielle went for purples and blue and used pink eyeliner

Step 3: Use black liquid liner to draw on cat flicks (it is Halloween after all) to enhance the eyes

Step 4: Follow with Lash Freak mascara to define the lashes

Step 5: Brows next! Mist your brush with setting spray and pick up your chosen colour from your palette and apply to the brows. At the thickest part of your brows apply a dusting of a contrasting colour. For a cartoon feel outline the brows with liner and add a few hair strokes

Step 6: Apply another neon shade to the tip of your nose and draw a skeleton nose onto the tip. Add a dusting of colour on to the end of your nose to tie the look together

Step 7: Use a flat shadow brush to paint on spikes of colour across your top and bottom lip

Step 8: Now comes the detail. Use your eyeliner to draw skeleton details to your cheeks and lips to create the look of teeth without having to do anything too strenuous

Step 9: Add an eyeshadow colour of your choosing along the lines on your cheeks to contour. Finish with setting spray.
