Skeleton Makeup Look

Follow the step-by-step process to ace the scary skeleton makeup look.

  1. Step 1: Primer
  2. To achieve the perfect ghostly skeleton Halloween makeup look, prepping your face is of utmost importance. Smoothen your canvas (i.e., your face) with a primer. We recommend you use the L'Oréal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer that smooths pores and creates an even surface.

  3. Step 2: Foundation
  4. Armor yourself with a full-coverage foundation and enter the world of devilish skeleton Halloween makeup. Once every segment of your face is prepped with a primer, take the required amount of foundation and create the base of this easy Halloween makeup look. Choose a shade as per your skin tone. Our recommendation is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24h Matte Cover foundation range. From Shell Beige to Classic Ivory, you can have numerous options to choose from. Give your face a 24-hour full coverage and set out to create a horrifying yet simple Halloween makeup look.

  5. Step 3: Powder
  6. Makeup is all about precision and it stays the same even for Halloween makeup. To make sure the haunted skeleton look has got a top-notch flawless finish, use the L'Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Powder D3W3 Golden Beige. Dabbing some pressed powder while doing Halloween makeup might let you feel like a sorcerer blowing magical powder to enchant someone.

  7. Step 4: Eyeshadow
  8. While stitched lip makeup is the main focal point, one cannot de-prioritise eye makeup. You just need an intense smokey eye and long lashes to take the ghostly stare to the next level. Start with orange eyeshadow at the inner corner and then proceed to the upper eyebrows (a little bit).

    Eyeshadow plays a crucial role in achieving the skeleton face makeup look. So, while applying eyeshadow, extend the areas and swirl your brushes on the cheekbones, temple, nose, and around the lip area. You can pick up the L'Oréal Paris La Petite Eyeshadow Palette (Maximalist) that comes with five shimmer and matte shadows and delivers the highest colour impact.

    The Halloween makeup for eyes is a bit detailed and depends on the other two aspects of makeup that are face makeup and lip makeup. It is here, the transition of the face from canvas to cauldron becomes evident when you move back and forth to apply and blend various beauty products to achieve the corpse look. So, before returning to the Halloween eye makeup with a gel liner, you need to start with your lip game.

  9. Step 5: Focus on Lip Makeup and Outline the Skeleton with Eyeliner
  10. Scare everyone at the Halloween party with coloredured stitched lip makeup. You can apply a nude lipstick before drawing the skeleton outline. Our recommendation is the L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Lipstick 248 Flatter Me Nude. The velvet matte finish keeps lips soft and hydrated.

    Take a black kohl pencil and work side by side for symmetry purposes. We recommend you use the L'Oréal Paris Superliner Flash Cat Eye Eyeliner (colour-black). Alternatively, you can ace the skeleton Halloween eye makeup with the L'Oréal Paris Super Liner Superstar Duo Designer Eyeliner (Black). The pencil liner on one end and liquid liner on the other help you create the deadliest stitched lip with ultimate precision. After successfully applying the pencil liner on the lips, move to other areas such as cheekbones, eyebrows, and nose, and draw minute lines there.

  11. Step 6: Complete the Eye Makeup with Gel Eyeliner
  12. The combination of orange eyeshadow and dark black gel eyeliner can make the Halloween eye makeup more chilling, intense, and horrifying. Take up a suitable brush and start applying the gel liner on areas where you coloured with orange eye shadow. A layer or two of gel eyeliner has enough power to reveal a haunted look, so concentrate on the inner eyes first and shift to the upper lids slowly. We recommend you use the L'Oréal Paris Gel Intenza Super Liner Gel Intenza Eyeliner (Profound Black) that lasts up to 36 hours and optimally resists sweat and tear.

    Once done, lastly move to the cheekbones and continue the action in an ‘apply and blend motion’. Next, complete the spooky eye makeup with orange and brown eye shadow. At this stage, you have almost achieved the scary Halloween makeup look.

    Make your face makeup a little bit dirty and hollow by adding brown eyeshadow. Your area of focus would be the side of the nose, around the lip area, temple, cheekbones. Do not forget to darken chin area. Apply brown eyeshadow to create an illusion of hollow makeup.

    In the world of the devil, anything sinful is permitted. Similarly, while doing Halloween party makeup, you can use eyeliner anywhere you seem fit. Therefore, once again return to your lip makeup and bold the marks of the stitched lip with gel eyeliner.

  13. Step 7: Highlighter
  14. Enhance the stitched lip makeup with highlighter. We recommend you use the L'Oréal Paris Le Blush Bar Highlighter 16 Passionate and apply it side by side and fill up the gap between each strand of the stitched lip. Alternatively, you can create the illusion of teeth and create this easy yet scary Halloween makeup look with L'Oréal Paris La Petite Eyeshadow Palette (Nudist) by using the light shade.
