Easy Scarecrow Makeup for Halloween Checklist

  1. Cream Makeup:  Some type of cream makeup like the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette (around $100). Here is a knock off flash palette perfect for the scarecrow makeup look on Amazon for under $18! 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 and Red Lipstick: Black lipsticks and red lipstick. I got the black one from Katy Perry Covergirl and the red lipstick is NYX or get the knockoff flash palette that has all the colors you need for this scarecrow makeup look for your easy halloween.
  3. Fake Lashes: Eyelashes if you want, but totally not necessary. I used the Ardell wispies for this look because they are fluffy and pretty.
  4. Skinny Eyeliner Brush: You will need a skinny eyeliner brush to work with the black cream makeup like the one in the flash palette. Or just use the knock off flash palette because everything is right there.  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.

1) After your foundation is done, apply black lipstick to your entire lip. You can absolutely use the black from the Flash Palette Knockoff  I found on Amazon.

2) Then apply red lipstick just to the center of your lips (also in flash-palette knockoff).

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 pat the white cream from the flash palette, set with a white eyeshadow. Next, contour with a black eyeshadow and then add your lashes.
