Halloween is coming soon, and many are scrambling to find a costume. One may not want to go out and buy a full-on costume but rather use face paint to create a creative look by hand. Here are three looks one could replicate for any Halloween event.



  1. Orange Cream Makeup
  2. Black Cream Makeup
  3. White Cream Makeup
  4. Pink Cream Makeup
  5. Beige Foundation
  6. Black Eyeliner
  7. Two Sponges
  8. One cotton swab 


  1. Apply beige foundation to the face.
  2. Cover the bottom half of the nose with orange cream makeup.
  3. Draw a line across the face, covering the mouth and lining the inner lips. Create vertical lines on the horizontal line with black cream makeup and black eyeliner.
  4. Once dried, line the orange on the nose using black cream makeup and make larger black lines going across it using black eyeliner.
  5. Create two large circles on the cheeks using a sponge and pink cream makeup.
  6. For a button look, draw a large black circle on the eye. Make eyelashes coming out of the circle. Place four dots with white cream makeup on the upper eyelid using a cotton swab.  
  7. To create a patch, make a square around the eye using black cream makeup and fill it in using orange cream makeup. Create lines going into the orange from the outside using black cream makeup.
