Halloween Costume Makeup: Lady Head Vase Makeup Tutorial

I collect lots of vintage things, and one of my mini collections is lady head vases. I also use them to hold makeup brushes and hair tools, but they’re most beautiful when being used for their intended purpose: as a vase for flowers. One of my beloved lady head vases holds dried roses, and it made me want to recreate it for Halloween. It’s the easiest Halloween costume idea ever: it takes no time and requires no expertise! Pair with a vintage dress for a last minute costume. Want to know how I made this look? Keep reading for my step by step tutorial, and tag #keikoheartshalloween if you try it out!:

  1. Start with a freshly moisturized and primed face, then soften your clown white makeup (I use Ben Nye but this Mehron version is available with Prime shipping) by slightly heating it up with a blow dryer.
  2. Apply all over with a brush or sponge and then set with powder. I like to dab all over to avoid any streaking, and will continue softening the makeup with my blow dryer as I go.
  3. Spray hair with white hair spray.
  4. Use black liquid liner to line your eyes, outline and fill your brows, and add any details.
  5. Add lashes and red lipstick. I’m wearing Smashbox “Bang Bang” liquid lipstick.

Final: Stick roses or flowers of your choice in your hair, to resemble a vintage lady head vase. Done!
