Transform into a Porcelain Doll With this Halloween Makeup Tutorial

How-to Halloween: Porcelain Doll

If you’re looking for a unique Halloween costume, try transforming yourself into a porcelain doll. This Halloween makeup look features large eyes, heart-shaped lips and perfect skin, which you can easily recreate with everyday makeup products.  

First, apply a full-coverage foundation to create a uniform and flawless complexion. For this look, we used jane iredale PurePressed Base SPF 20 in Radiant. Then, using a light brown eyebrow pencil like jane iredale Eye Pencil in Basic Brown, fill in your brows to give them definition.

You want your eyes to look large and wide. Apply a white eyeshadow over the entire lid and blend out to the brow bone. We chose the white end of jane iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil for this tutorial. Using a black liquid liner like bareMinerals Lasting Line Long-Wearing Eyeliner in Absolute Black, line your upper lid, making the line thicker in the middle and thinner toward the ends. Then, using a white eye pencil like jane iredale Eye Pencil in White, line your waterline. This helps your eyes appear large and wide. Top it off with two coats of volumizing mascara like bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara or a pair of large false lashes.

Next, apply a bright pink blush like glo minerals GloBlush in Begonia to the apples of your cheeks. Keep the pigment concentrated on the apples of your cheeks and blend outward to avoid any harsh lines.

Create heart-shaped lips by using a nude lip pencil to line and fill in your lips. This will provide an excellent canvas for your red lip. You can also use a concealer like jane iredale Circle\Delete Concealer to create a uniform base and a red lip liner like bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Liner in Amped to outline your lips. Emphasize your Cupid’s bow by extending the line over your top lip. This will give your lips the porcelain doll heart-shape. Fill in your lips with a long-lasting lip stain like jane iredale Lip Fixation Lip Stain in Passion. Clean up any mistakes with concealer and a brush.

Pull your look together with bouncy curls and a dress with a full skirt and puffy sleeves. Now you’re all dolled up!
