Want to become a scarecrow for Halloween? Here is what you need!

make up for ever for character makeup for halloween

1) Some type of cream makeup like the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette. If you don’t have that, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, and CVS all have Halloween cream makeup for rather inexpensive. You need Orange and black cream makeup.

2) Black lipsticks and red lipstick. I got the black one from Wet & Wild and the red lipstick is Estee Lauder.

3) Eyelashes if you want, but totally not necessary. I used the Ardell wispies for this look because they are fluffy and pretty.

4) You will need a skinny eyeliner brush to work with the black cream makeup. If you don’t happen to have the black cream makeup, or a skinny liner brush, just use a black eyeliner that is on the creamier side.

Let’s get started on this scarecrow makeup look, shall we?

how to get scarecrow makeup


1) After your foundation is done, apply black lipstick to your entire lip.

2) Then apply red lipstick just to the center of your lips.

3) Draw a curving line upwards from the corner of your mouth with either a black cream and a skinny liner brush, or a black liner pencil.

4) Next draw vertical lines down across the black line you just created and across your lips. This gives the scarecrow makeup a sort of stitched look.

5) Draw a triangle on your nose with the same black cream makeup you have been using, and then fill it in with an orange cream makeup.

6) For your eyes, you just need to draw 3 lines extending from the outer corners of your eyes. Then Draw a line about a quarter inch below your natural lash line Then just contour your eyes with a black eyeshadow and do your lashes.
