PEARL SKULL – Easy Halloween makeup tutorial

Halloween makeup tutorial - Pearl skull

Halloween pearl skull white pink



This white pink pearl skull created itself. Or that’s what I’d like to say. In reality I struggled with it for over two hours and almost quit a few times, but my sister pushed me to keep going. I guess what I meant is that I didn’t have a clear vision for it. I just tried to go with the flow and added things here and there. I wanted to keep it light and pretty, even if it is a skull. In the end, now looking at these photos, I think I did an okay job.

Pearl skulls are beautiful and I definitely want to do one in the future as well. But in all honesty: pearls require patience. I basically glued each pearl one by one (because the stickers didn’t stick). But the result is worth it.

Anyway – here is my tutorial for this easy pearl skull!

Here are the step by step photos and written instructions for creating this pearl skull. All the products are listed at the end of this post.

  1. Apply a light reflecting primer all over your face. Bonus, if the primer has a pearly shade to it. Then apply a full coverage foundation all over the face. After that highlight your face – at least your cheekbones. A cool toned/pearl highlighter is perfect for this look. I would also suggest adding a lot of pink blush at this point! I applied blush only in the end, but it did look really nice, so I recommend doing it right in the beginning. You can add blush on your cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.
  2. Start sketching out the skull with white face paint. I also did some extra brush strokes here and there (on my nose, chin etc).
  3. Finally – add your pearls one by one. And that’s it! Finish off the look with some pearl accessories.

The most important things for this look are basically just face paints (or you could use a white pencil like *NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk), glue and pearls (or pearl stickers).
If you’re extra like I am, you also need light reflecting primer, a full coverage foundation, a highlighter and a blush.

BLOODY – Easy Halloween makeup tutorial

This bloody Halloween look is quite outstanding, yet easy to recreate. All you need is fake blood to mess your face with, once you’ve done your makeup. I paired this look with a full glam look (on which I have a tutorial), but I think a simple makeup could also work. I would just recommend applying a red lip though, because it elevates the look and looks really good with the fake blood!

I like that this look isn’t necessary a certain thing. You can come up with your own backstory. I’m personally thinking of a zombie apocalypse, but maybe it’s just all the zombie movies my significant other makes me watch. Or maybe this look is a manifestation of the year 2020: beautiful, yet brutal. Who knows?  Coming up with a backstory makes a great icebreaker for any (online) parties.
