4 easy halloween makeup tips

1. How to make realistic fake blood

Because Halloween is all about gore and fright, blood is a must-have for Halloween makeup. There’s a shockingly simple way to make fake blood that will last as long as your Halloween party. Here’s how to make fake blood step by step:

What you’ll need

  • Red lipstick
  • Red lipgloss
  • Black liquid eyeliner


Take some red lipstick, scrape the lipstick from the tube and place it on a small dish or metal plate. Put any black eyeliner, liquid or creamy, into the lipstick. Only use enough liquid liners to make the mixture a little mushy. Then take your liquid lip gloss and apply a generous amount to get a thick texture.

You can adjust the color to your liking. If you want the blood to be brighter, use more red lipstick. If you want your blood to look like zombie blood, use extra black eyeliner. Apply the mixture to your face using a stiff brush. Make it look as natural as possible.

2. How to make a 3D wound

3D wound looks so natural so people assume that only professional makeup artists can create 3D wounds. But this technique is rather simple to do on your own. You can create the wound of your dreams this Halloween just by using non-toxic glue!

What you’ll need

  • Non-toxic glue
  • Powder
  • Foundation in your color
  • Red eyeshadow
  • Violet eyeshadow


Cut two pieces of glue and sandwich them together with a space in the middle.
Apply a light dusting of powder and then apply foundation. The foundation should be the same color as your skin.

To obtain a bruised effect, use violet and red eye shadows around the glue. Then, using a black liner, draw the space in the centre. Cover it with red lipstick and lip gloss to make it more lifelike, and you’re set to go!
