Step 1 – Draw a heart shape on your face

Halloween Mime Makeup 1

Take white foundation (or you can also use face paint) and your trusty foundation brush and draw the outline of a heart on your face. The heart should go around all your features, starting above the eyebrows and reaching to a point at your chin.

Step 2 – Fill in heart by dabbing with sponge

Halloween Mime Makeup 2

Dab white foundation on to a makeup sponge and start applying it to the area inside your heart outline. Build on the coverage bit-by-bit to create an even, symmetrical finish. Once happy with the final shape, set it with powder for a matte finish.

Top Tip: Don’t worry too much about staying inside the lines, as once your heart is finished you can tidy up the edges by going over with a makeup wipe.

Step 3 – Apply pink eyeshadow to the crease

Using a hot pink eyeshadow, apply to the crease of the eyelids. The brighter the colour and coverage, the bolder the look!

Step 4 – Go feline with black liquid eyeliner

Define your eyes by drawing a cat eye-inspired flick with black liquid eyeliner. Apply in short strokes - for added ease - as close to the lash line as possible and finish with a subtle upwards flick.  

Step 5 – Coat lashes with mascara

Apply mascara to your top and bottom eyelashes. Get the most from your mascara by moving the wand in a zigzag motion from root to tip as this will evenly distribute the product for a lengthening finish.

Step 6a – Add false eyelashes

Focusing on one eye at a time, coat your lashes in glue and secure as close to the lash line as possible. You can use tweezers to position them perfectly and you can always carry a little lash glue in your clutch bag if you’re worried about them lifting throughout the night.

Step 6b – Apply falsies to the bottom lashes

Halloween is all about going bold with makeup, so we’re going to add even more definition with some bottom false lashes.

Concentrating on one eye at a time, coat the lash in glue and then position. Apply these close to your lower lash line, going underneath your lashes and gently press to secure.

Step 7 – Define brows with black gel eyeliner

As we want this mime makeup look to stand out, your normal brow pencil simply won’t have the wow-factor. Switch to black gel eyeliner and brush through your brows for added contrast.

 Step 8 – Add a slick of pink lippie

To pick up on the punchy pink hue used on the eyes, apply a slick of bright pink liquid lipstick.

Step 9 – Finish with pink blusher

Take a fan brush and pink blusher (or use the same pink eyeshadow you used earlier) and gently dust on to the apples of the cheeks. This will tie together all the pink elements and make for a striking finish!
