1. Pirate

This is one of the favorite characters of many kids when it comes to celebrating Halloween. Let’s dress up your kid as a young pirate.

  • Here, you have to start with cleaning your kid’s face with a sponge or a clean cloth. Take brown and yellow eyeshadow and smudge his/her cheeks, forehead, and neck using them.
  • Take an eyeliner pencil or eyeshadow and make the eyebrow a little dark. It will give him an unkempt and full look. Always keep in mind that if you do darker eyebrows, your pirate will look more frightening.
  • In one eye where there is no eyepatch, apply dark brown eyeshadow below the eye to get the look of dark circles.
  • Now, dip a sponge into a wet brown eyeshadow, or you can take face paint and add facial hair on the chin and above the lip. It will help in giving a pirate’s unshaved look. Another way is to use a fake mustache if you don’t want to apply makeup. You can stick them with the help of eyelash glue. Just be sure that your kid is not allergic to such products.
  • In the end, you can make your kid wearing some ripped clothes and some accessories, such as a pirate hat, gold coins, or a hook.

2. Lion

What about making your kid turning into a roaring lion this Halloween? If you can, make your kid wearing a lion costume and you can have lion makeup on your face. This can be a great idea for Halloween makeup for kids.

  • Take a sponge and damp it into some yellow face paint. If you use dry face paint, make sure to take a wet brush or sponge and then dip it into the yellow paint.
  • When you are going to use a sponge, get some orange color with yellow paint. Try to blend both colors properly to create an ombre effect. Try to use orange in a way that resembles fur.
  • Now, get a white color and dip a sponge in it. Apply this color under the eyes, above the top lip, and blend it evenly onto cheeks in a way that resembles the muzzle of the lion.
  • Use dark brown or black paint to make eyebrows dark and thick. Don’t forget to apply it to the bottom lip and on the nose.

  • Take green paint and cover your kid’s neck and face using this color above the white coating.
  • To get this look, be sure that you have a fake nose matching the green-colored skin. Put this fake nose on the original nose in a way that it covers the real nose.

  • Now, tie the hair into a bun.

  • Take black eyeliner and make a half-circle above the eyebrow. Make sure that it should be thin at the edges and keep it thick in the middle.
  • If you have a craft brush, use it to make three circles on one cheek and do the same on the other cheek using pink face paint.
