If on Halloween you decide to reincarnate as a sinister character, but want to look beautiful at the same time, the devil’s make-up is what you need. Unlike the zombie image, this choice will preserve human traits. First, let’s figure out what is typical for it.

Halloween Devil Makeup: Creation Features

Reincarnating into the devil with the help of makeup will be somewhat easier than trying to repeat a specific image from a thriller on which more than one make-up artist has worked. In addition, within the framework of such a make-up, you can safely experiment. After all, there are no clear rules dictating how the devil should look like.


This photo tutorial will help you create a bold yet feminine wine look. Expressive eyebrows, an unusual accent in the crease of the eyelid, cherry lipstick and, of course, horns are the main components of the devil’s makeup, which can be safely repeated for Halloween.

How to Make Devil Makeup for Halloween: Step-by-Step Photo Tutorial

The active black and red smoky makeup for the devil is already out of date. In this photo tutorial, you will find a modern yet easy-to-use theme party makeup.

  1. 1

    Devil makeup should be the same color as your natural skin tone, or slightly warmer.

    apply tone


    Vampiric pallor is useless here. Pay attention also to the finish: there should be no excessive shine, so as not to overload the already active makeup. For example, Stay Naked by Urban Decay will do.

  2. 2

    Cover dark circles under the eyes with Urban Decay Stay Naked Concealer and do a little touch-up.

    To do this, select the center of the forehead, chin, paint over the wings of the nose and draw ascending lines at the outer corners of the eyes.



  3. 3

    Powder your face to set the creamy textures, and then accentuate the oval of the face with bronzer. And don’t be afraid to overdo it: boldly and liberally apply it along the hairline and on the cheekbones.



  4. 4

    With a white pencil, draw the base for the horns above the eyebrows. The more curved they are, the more interesting the image will look.

  5. 5

    Use a black pencil to trace the outline of the drawing without touching the bottom border. Evenness and clarity of lines are not important here.



  6. 6

    Use a small brush to blend the black pencil in short, jerky strokes. It is important to move the brush from edge to center to stretch black over white, creating a smooth gradient. This will make the drawing look three-dimensional. In places where it bends, pull the black tint closer to the center.

  7. 7

    To make the horns look more realistic, create a volumetric ledge where they begin. For this, you can use an eyebrow pencil and a light concealer.

    draw the horns


  8. 8

    Tinted eyebrows with pencil or fondant. For example, Sculpt & Highlight Brow Contour by NYX Professional Makeup.

    At the same time, make the end of the eyebrow longer than usual – this solution will support active eye makeup.

  9. 9

    With the help of red or burgundy shadows, actively highlight the crease of the eyelid, extending it almost to the temple. Tint the movable eyelid with beige shadows.

    With a black pencil, paint over the lash line, creating a light shaded arrow. You can completely do without eyeliner.

    accentuate the lash line


  11. 11

    The same burgundy eyeshadow as in step 9, blend along the lower eyelid. Paint over the mucous membrane and roots of the eyelashes with a black pencil. Do not forget about the inner corner: this will make your look as expressive as possible.



  12. 12

    Apply to lashes with Bambi Eye mascara by LOréal Paris in two layers.

    The lashes don’t have to look neat, so the focus should be on volume.

  13. 13

    Blend the burgundy shadow that you applied on the eyelids along the contour of the lips. This technique will give the look a more modern look and work better than lip makeup with a clear outline. On the center of the lips, add some matte burgundy lipstick, patting it on with the pad of your finger.

    apply lipstick


The devil’s make-up is ready!

Original devil makeup ideas for girls

DDevil’s Rome on Halloween can look different. Here are some more ideas.

The easiest way to reincarnate as a devil is to use black. Smooth tone, lacquer effect on the lips and long arrows – this may be enough. Such a make-up is also suitable as a basis if you decide to reincarnate as a witch, vampire or other frightening character.

Are you ready to experiment? Then you can blend the fuchsia blush from the cheekbones to the temples (don’t be afraid, you won’t look like a clown), draw wide black arrows from the bridge of the nose to the very eyebrows, and apply maroon varnish on the lips.

What can be added to the frightening image of the devil?

MGirls can complement the Halloween devil’s makeup with manicure, styling and accessories. How exactly?

  • In manicure, you should also adhere to a gloomy color scheme. Pastel varnishes or bright neon in this image is useless. Black and wine manicure or minimalist design with blood red lacquer (no flowers or polka dots) is what you need.

  • For styling to become a harmonious addition to the image, give up feminine curls or weaves. It is better to collect hair in a strict ponytail, adding volume at the roots, or make a smooth styling.

  • Do not overload the image with accessories. It is better to choose a suit in black so that it does not distract attention from the makeup and is in harmony with the makeup. You can wear laconic rings or earrings.
