It’s October, which means it’s time for all things spooky, creepy and supernatural – Halloween. And in the spirit of Halloween, it’s time for a few easy Halloween makeup looks. First up, the cracked doll. I used this video as my inspiration.
The cracked doll makeup look can be achieved without any fancy schmancy tools or products, though you might want to pick up a white face paint from the drugstore if you don’t have on hand. Other than that, all you need is your everyday makeup, an eyeliner and eyeliner brush, contour powder and a blending brush.
There are two parts to the cracked doll makeup look. The “normal” portion and the “doll”. “Normal” is anything you want it to be. I did my everyday makeup but you could go glam with a cut crease or get creative with a colourful smokey eye. The “doll” portion is everything else – a white base with black detailing. It looks cool and there’s not much to it. All the things required for a quick and easy Halloween makeup look.
Get the Look
- Lightly sketch out the “cracked” outlines with a black eyeliner like the Annabelle Skinny Gel Eyeliner in Black Onyx.
- Apply your everyday makeup the “skin” portion. I used the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation as a base and concealed under the eyes with the Hard Candy Color Correct Cushion Wonder Concealer in Peach. I applied a touch of the Make Up For Ever Artist Color in B-210 onto the apples of the cheeks. Also, I penciled in my eyebrows with Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil, blended the Make Up For Ever Artist Face Color in S-116 onto the eyes, lined the upper lash line with the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner and finished off with a light coat of Dior Pump N Volume Mascara on the upper and lower eyelashes.
- Blend along the light sketch lines with a cool or neutral coloured contour powder like Make Up For Ever Artist Color in S-116 to create depth.
- Draw over the sketch lines with black eyeliner to darken them.
- Paint the “doll” portion of the face with a white base, ideally a white face paint but I used the white in the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette.
- Haphazardly draw small cracks over the white base using a precise eyeliner brush and a black eyeliner (again, I used the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette for this). Messier is better here, as the randomness makes for a more “effortless” look.
- If you want your look to last longer than a couple ours, make sure to set all cream products with a powder and lock it all in with a setting spray.
