13 Days of Halloween Makeup-Harlequin

Hello! I hope you are having pleasant weekend! My next look in the series “13 Days of Halloween Makeup” is that of a harlequin. These characters who were once jesters in traditional theatrical entertainment are now represented as evil and machiavellian beings.




Time: 45 minutes

Difficulty: 3/10

This look can be divided into three major steps. First, I used white face paint and translucent white powder as the base, in order to create a very pale complexion. Second, I did a smokey eye makeup using silver and black eyeshadow. Moreover, I used liquid eyeliner and mascara to complete the eyes, and black eyeshadow to fill in my brows. Furthermore, I applied a dark brown, almost black eyeshadow under my cheekbones for contouring. Lastly, I used liquid eyeliner to create the black shapes around my eyes, my nose, and my mouth. I overdrew my lips and added more curvature to mimic the devious  and cunning grin found on most harlequins. Once dry, I outlined the four triangles with the same silver eyeshadow I had previously used on my eyes. This makeup look is mostly straightforward and can be varied with numerous colours and diamond patterns. Have fun with it!

What has been your favourite look so far? Let me know down below:)
