7 Eye Makeup Looks for Your Zoom Halloween Party
Channel your inner artist through eye makeup ideas from your favorite source of entertainment!
The countdown to October 31 is on. While we’re used to dressing up as our favorite characters for Halloween, we might want to do something different this time. With most of us choosing to stay at home, Halloween may very well be all about #turnt eye makeup looks for now. So, get your favorite palettes and check out these eye makeup ideas to make your Zoom Halloween unforgettable.
1. Red Velvet’s Seulgi’s Magical Glitter Tears
This makeup became famous on Red Velvet’s “Psycho” music video in 2019. Since then, its appeal has become timeless. Cop this eye makeup look by applying peach eyeshadow all over your lids. Add subtle drama with brown eyeliner, then apply some light mascara. Next, take out your face and body glitter gel to add shimmering tears. You can also ask her bandmate, Red Velvet’s Wendy, for the secrets to glowing skin to further achieve this look.
2. Euphoria’s Glamorous Masquerade Look
The drama series Euphoria experiments a lot with makeup as a part of storytelling. One of Maddy Perez’s eye makeup looks is iconic. Easy yet impactful, you can achieve this look at home. Blend different shades of blue eyeshadow over the crease area, then bring it out to creating “wings.” Define your eyes with black eyeliner and apply falsies for maximum effect. Finally, finish the look with glued rhinestones around the eye area.
3. Twiggy’s Dramatic ‘60s Look
Prefer a bold look with nude colors? Twiggy’s signature eye makeup look is the way to go. The British model and fashion icon is known for taking mod beauty to the mainstream. Her go-to? A super pronounced cut crease and exaggerated top and bottom eyelashes, which make the eyes doll-like. Like Anya Taylor-Joy and Shailene Woodley who have brought back the look through The Queen’s Gambit and The Last Letter to Your Lover respectively, you can also recreate this for your upcoming virtual Halloween party.
4. Blackpink’s Lisa’s Classic Cat-Eye Liner Look
It’s not Halloween until someone shows up as a cat. You can use Lisa’s cat-eye liner as your guide to turn into a classic cat-woman. Blend different shades of brown on your eyelid, then create sharp cat-eye with a liquid eyeliner. Top it off with false lashes. You can also add a subtle smokey eye look to create a mysterious look.
To make your eyes look bigger, you might want to wear colored contact lenses like Lisa. If you want to make it look subtle, choose ones that are closest to your eye color. Conversely, pick different colors if you want to look extra. Put on the cat headband and you’re ready to go!
5. Harley Quinn’s Fun Look
Ever since her appearance in 2016’s Suicide Squad, this character has been a fan favorite. The fierce fighter is known for her love for blue and pink (bet she would love Blackpink, too, if only she had the chance to encounter the group). To achieve the look, use blue eyeshadow on your right eye and pink on the other. Use an ultra-pigmented eye shadow. Then, gently but precisely smudge the pigment outward and downward. You can either use a makeup blender or your hands — either way, the idea is to look naturally messed up.
6. Dreamy Edgy Look
Dreaming of simple yet unique eye makeup looks? Try star-studded lids, as seen on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Prepare your eyelids with a clear gloss for the perfect amount of tackiness and shine. Then, place shimmery stars carefully with tweezers from the inner to outer corners of your eyes. You can also draw on graphic shapes with colored eyeliner to stand out even more. Swipe on a few coats of mascara to finish off the look.
7. Butterfly Trendy Makeup Look
Did anyone say, “winged liner”? This one takes it to the next level, which is probably why it has gotten much attention on social media. Start by blending orange and a hint of chocolate eyeshadow to the outer corner of your eye. Then, use your black eyeliner to outline and shape the wings. Use white face paint to create dots around the wings. Finally, apply false eyelashes for an even more fluttery look. You can use your favorite colors for the wings and get creative by adding rhinestones or pearls to your butterfl-eye.
After all the fun, don’t forget to remove your makeup before going to bed. POND’S Cleansing Balm is a solid balm cleanser that deeply cleanses and melts away your makeup while infusing skin with vital moisture. Suitable for use as an eye makeup remover, it gently dissolves eye makeup without drying out your skin. Wipe off all traces of makeup by rinsing it off with warm water. Removing makeup is necessary for the good of your skin.
After cleansing, apply POND’S Age Miracle Eye Cream around the eye area. It strengthens the skin barrier and brightens with vitamin B3. It also contains Retinol-C Complex, which provides powerful wrinkle reduction, plus glycerin to boost moisture levels for a plumper, smoother skin.
Use these eye makeup looks as inspiration or follow them to a tee — the fate of your Zoom Halloween look is in your hands now!
