BOOO! Enhance your Halloween look with spooky makeup ideas

Posted: Updated:

A professional makeup artist is giving Halloween makeup ideas just in time for the spookiest day of the year.

Ally Kara from Creative Karacters says some makeup looks can be simple - like a lighter base on the face, eyeshadow and black lipstick for a character like Wednesday Addams.

She says for other looks, like a Frankenstein-inspired look, she used green paint on one half of her face and drew in stitching with red paint to make the face look three-dimensional.

Kara also says colored contacts can enhance your Halloween look, and also recommends shadowing and highlighting parts of your face.

For a makeup look for the Hulk, Kara recommends using a dark shadow to deepen the cheekbones and eyebrows to create a more menacing look.

She also says that eyeshadow can be used as blush, especially for a princess look. To enhance it, Kara recommends adding jewels to your face.
