Non-Toxic Halloween Makeup
This is the second look in my series of non-toxic Halloween makeup looks! This look was created entirely using natural and organic cosmetics (listed below) so for those of you who want to avoid your typical Halloween makeup that can clog pores, contain less-than-pleasant ingredients, or just want to stick with natural and organic makeup products that you already have on hand, this look is for you.
I wanted this look to be creepy and scary because I love Harley Quinn, as you know, and I’d done this makeup a million times. I wanted to avoid going for the Suicide Squad Harley Quinn look as I’m sure you’ve seen it a million times floating around the internet. I also didn’t want to share the same thing I’d done in previous years, but I love Harley so, of course, I wanted to share a new look!
Harley Quinn Makeup Look
I used a variety of products to get this look, but it’s quite simple even if it doesn’t look that simple. The most difficult part of this look was creating the bloody J (for Joker) on my cheek and having the blood drip down the way I wanted it to. Fake blood is annoying to deal with and I made my own with natural food coloring and caro (karo?) syrup which was the most natural way I found to make fake blood. You can also opt to purchase fake blood because it’s a lot quicker than making it, but it’s up to you.
Get the Look:
The first thing I did for this look was to apply my Gressa Skin Serum Foundation all over my face and down my neck. I am already quite pale (I wear the lightest shade) and so this wasn’t difficult to get my skin looking super pale. That said, I applied this foundation on really heavily in order to get the caked on clown makeup look.
After that, I applied Jane Iredale Eye Shadow (in the burgundy color) from the Celebrate Eye Shadow Trio (it’s from the City Nights Collection) to my right eye. I filled in my entire eye area up to my eyebrow and all the way under my eyes so that my whole ocular cavity was filled in (similar to how you fill in your eyes for skeleton makeup). I also wet the shadow a little and applied the color to my waterline and filled in my brows with the color.
I used the same technique on my left eye, but I used the matte black color from Antonym Cosmetics’ Croisette Eye Quattro. I also layered on Living Nature’s in Midnight to darken up around my eyes and fill in my waterline.
I use that same eyeliner pencil to line the right side of my lips. I then applied ILIA Beauty Mascara in Shadow Of A Doubt and used Nudus Lip Euphoria in Revenge on the left side of my lips.
I then layered over the Jane Iredale shadow from earlier so that the colors would be consistent. I then put fake blood in my hairline and all down the right side of my hair. I put my hair in some really messed up pigtails (one low ponytail and one up high on my head).
For the final touches, I used a fine angled brush to apply the bloody J to my cheek and let lines of blood run down my face and eyes and out of my hairline. And that’s it!
- Face: Gressa Skin Minimalist Corrective Serum Foundation (in the lightest shade)
- Eyes: Jane Iredale Celebrate Eye Shadow Trio // Antonym Cosmetics Croisette Eye Quattro // Living Nature Eyeliner Pencil // ILIA Mascara
- Lips: Living Nature Eyeliner Pencil and Nudus Lip Euphoria
- Fake Blood: 3 tablespoons of Caro Syrup mixed with several drops of food coloring until it reached the color I wanted.
I can only smile when I’m trying to look insane, apparently… 😛
