3 Easy Halloween Makeup Tutorials: Part 2 – Deer

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Drexel chapter.

Halloween is the time of year where anything goes—so why not have a little fun with your makeup? I’ve made three step-by-step makeup tutorials for anyone who wants a cute, easy, and inexpensive look for Halloween. The best part is you can choose to accessorize as much or as little as you want! I didn’t have to buy a single thing to create any of these looks, they were already in my closet! This is part two of three, the Deer. Part one (Scarecrow) can be found here, and part three (Cat) is here.

Deer: Materials

You will need:

  • Bronzer
  • White eyeliner
  • Neutral eyeshadow
  • Brown liquid liner
  • Dark brown or neutral lipstick

What to wear:

  • Neutral shirt
  • Antlers (optional) 

Step 1

Start off with a clean layer of foundation.

Step 2

Next, go crazy with bronzer, particularly right on and under your cheekbones. Remember the days when being orange was actually cool? Channel that trend into this look.

Step 3

For the eyeshadow, just sweep a neutral color onto your entire lid. Then, with the white eyeliner, draw a line directly under your eyebrow as a highlight.

Step 4

Still using the white liner, draw a thick white line from the tip of your nose to about halfway up your forehead. Then branch out from this line onto your forehead and above your eyebrows. Blend everything completely except for the thick line on the bridge of your nose.

Step 5

With the brown liquid liner, add a horizontal line to the tip of your nose and fill the tip from that line down almost to your nostrils.

Step 6

Next, you’ll need to outline the white on your nose with the brown liner, extending and connecting the lines all the way up to your eyebrows. Then fill in your eyebrows with the liner as well.

Step 7

Take the brown liner and create a pointed line starting from your tear duct. Then, line your bottom lid with the white liner.

Step 8

Using the white eyeliner, add some spots on your cheekbones and your forehead.

Step 9

One last thing to take care of—your lips! The color you choose is really up to you. You can use any neutral you want. I chose a bold shade of brown.

Final Result

See, I told you it would be easy! This look is awesome because a costume isn’t necessary—you can dress up with clothes and accessories, but your makeup already looks #flawless. Now you don’t have to panic about finding a costume at the last minute—you most likely own everything you need.
