It’s that scary time of the year again and no we don’t mean the exams. We are referring to Halloween! 🎃
It’s safe to say when it comes to Halloween the first thing that usually comes to mind are Halloween costumes and that’s it. This year, why not take your Halloween outfit to the next level and show off your makeup skills? Did you know this is achievable with Korean beauty products?
Yes! Take a break from the usual K-beauty makeup trends and adorable looks of your favorite Korean actress. Do away with difficult to remove, toxic face paints too.
We rounded up 5 easy Halloween makeup looks online that you can recreate this Halloween. Featuring the best products from our Korea Marketplace, but there’s more, so read on and find out!
#1 Haunted Vintage Doll
Let’s start off with something easy – the haunted doll. We all remember Annabelle from ‘The Conjuring’ film series. Whether you choose to get all creepy like the real deal or go the adorable yet spooky route, the haunted doll look is totally IN this season. Use Tony Moly’s Panda Dream Brightening Eye Base to cover up your dark circles and make your eyes look bigger and brighter. Apply fake eyelashes on your bottom lash line with Missha’s Salon De Lash Set.
For the illusion of higher cheekbones, use heavy contour and highlight. We recommend Art by Rodin Shading and W.Lab’s 3D Tone Up Stick. Complete the look with a vintage, floral dress, knee-high socks and a broken doll hand prop. Creepy indeed!
#2 Foxy Queen
Go the scary-sexy route and be the queen of the (concrete) jungle. Being a foxy queen is easy. Electrify others with your foxy persona with Hera’s product line. Hera Black Cushion ensures a soft, matte finish that lasts and blends nicely with the skin. Gently dab a light amount of Black Cushion and concealer as base. Add dimension to your facial features with Hera Face Designing Bronzer.
To further enhance your eyes, thicken it with Tony Moly’s Back Gel Eyeliner. Finally, matte lipsticks are all the rage recently, make your lips naturally bigger (without lip plumps) with The Saem Eco Soul Lip Matte.
#3 Vampire’s Mistress
Still on the scary-sexy theme, look seductive this Halloween season with a vampy get up. Now, this one is pretty simple too! All you need is some base makeup, a concealer like this one from CLIO, Kill Cover Pro, highlights and a bright red lipstick.
Alternatively, you can also get this bordeaux lip color from Shiseido along with some fake blood to complete the look. Seriously—no fangs necessary! To get rid of oily excess, use Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder and voilà you are all set.
#4 Killer Clown
There’s always something sinister and spine-chilling about clowns and I am pretty sure Pennywise will agree with this one. Play around with the various shades and don’t be afraid to exaggerate with eyeliners for a more intense look. Glitz your eyes with matte eye shadow shimmer using Etude House’s Play Color Eyes and try out Aritaum IDOL liquid eyeliner. For me, I chose to go with some extra fake eyelashes for a more dramatic effect. Finally, to get that evil twist of lips, choose I’M Lip Crayon Matte from I’M Meme.
Last but not least, here’s one for fans of The Walking Dead. While Season 8 just commenced with rather mixed reactions, that won’t stop us from getting into some zombie fun! Use The Saem Eco Soul Primer, a foundation stick, Tony Moly Back Gel Eyeliner and some black eye shadow. You can also experiment with different shades and blends to create a zombie look that is unique to you. Try this Pro Touch Color Master Shadow Palette from Nature Republic.
