Today, we’re doing a last-minute demon costume. I’m going to show you how to create this female demon makeup look using things you already have or things that are really easy to come by. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials: 

  • Foundation
  • Concealer
  • Eyeshadow
  • Eyeshadow primer
  • Highlighter
  • Liquid eyeliner
  • Eyeliner pencil
  • False lashes
  • Hair spray paint
  • White contacts
  • Nail polish
Applying foundation and concealer

1. Apply foundation and concealer

Cover your face with foundation and some concealer to create a flawless base. 

Filling in brows

2. Fill in your brows

When everything is blended in, fill in your eyebrows and make them quite thick and angular since we’re going for a glam look all around the eyes so don’t be afraid to make them really sharp and prominent.

Applying eyeshadow primer

3. Apply eyeshadow primer

Apply a little bit of eyeshadow primer on and underneath your eyelids.

Adding highlighter

4. Apply highlighter

Apply highlighter right underneath your eyebrow, using a color slightly lighter than your skin tone.

Applying eyeshadow

5. Apply white eyeshadow

Apply a white cream eyeshadow all over the moving parts of your eyelid. Use a white eyeshadow powder afterward to set it and make it an even brighter white color.

6. Cut your crease

Make a cut crease using black eyeshadow and an angled eyeliner brush. 

Applying eyeshadow

Blend the back upwards to create a smoky look. After, use a clean, fluffy eyeshadow brush to just blend everything out.

7. Apply black eyeshadow

Apply a lot of black eyeshadow to the bottom of your eyelid and blend it out. Connect the eyeshadow to the top cut crease to create a triangular shape on the outside.

Don’t be afraid to make this demon eye makeup quite prominent.

8. Apply shimmery white eyeshadow

Apply shimmery white eyeshadow to the inner corner of your eyes and underneath your eyebrows.

Applying eyeliner

9. Apply liquid eyeliner

Using liquid eyeliner, draw a line along your lash line and connect it to the other triangle. This is to prepare for the false eyelashes that are going on later.

Outlining mouth

10. Outline the mouth

The real feature of this demon Halloween makeup is the demonic mouth, so let’s move on to that. Start by outlining the basic shape of where you want the mouth to go in.

Draw demon mouth

11. Draw the mouth shapes

Go in with black eyeshadow on an angled brush and draw random, swirly shapes on the mouth, making sure to make it a little bit wider towards the center where the lips are to make it look like a smiling mouth.

You can dip the brush into the water now and then to make the eye shadow sharp.

Adding false eyelashes

12. Apply false lashes

Apply large, false eyelashes that are really glam to the top lash line.

Applying eyeliner

13. Line your waterline

Use a black eyeliner pencil to line your waterline and deepen the look so it’s more intense.

Applying cream paint

14. Apply cream paint to your eyelashes

Touch the tips of your eyelashes with cream paint to create a gradient effect.

Paint added to mad demon hair

15. Paint your hair 

Let’s add the finishing touches to the demon Halloween costume. Use white hair spray paint to color two strands of your hair at the front and then put your hair up into two high ponytails. This enhances the mad look. 

Applying contacts

16. Apply white contacts

Pop in some white contacts.  

Painting nails

17. Paint your nails

For the finishing touch, you can also do your nails and hands kind of demonically. Start by painting your nails black. You can be sloppy with it since you’re going for a scary look anyway.

Adding eyeshadow to hands

18. Apply black eyeshadow to your hands

Take a black eyeshadow and create a gradient going down your hand from your fingers.
