It’s Halloween season once more and I’ve been thinking hard about what kind of easy Halloween makeup tutorial I can share with you all this year! You know I’m all about being able to use makeup you already own, or at least affordable makeup you can pick up and still use past the holiday in your normal beauty routine. Looking at my own collection of makeup, I knew that I had a bunch of bright colors that were about to hibernate for fall and winter, and I thought I’d give them one last hurrah in this bright fantasy owl Halloween makeup look.
Everything used is budget-friendly and you may even have them in your collection already. You’ll recognize a few products as go-tos of mine. Here’s a full list of what I used:
- Craft Feathers
- e.l.f. Mineral Infused Primer
- Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation
- L’Oreal Magic De-Crease Eyelid Primer
- Maybelline The City Mini Palette in Graffiti Pop
- L’Oreal Infallible Long Wear Eye Pencils in Black & Purple
- Covergirl Get In Line Liquid Eyeliner
- L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner in White
- Rimmel Scandaleyes Brow & Liner Kajal Pencil in Fierce Fuchsia
- Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Topaz
- Duo Brush On Lash Glue

Even though this Halloween makeup look seems elaborate and time consuming, it’s actually quite easy to recreate! Plus, since you’re going for a feathery look, your technique doesn’t need to be perfect or neat. What is probably the most time consuming is affixing the feathers to your face, especially if you decide to trim them. But even then, it’s pretty simple with lash glue to stick them on right over your brow. Feel free to add more or less than I did in this tutorial– this look is totally customizable!
Owls are one of my fave animals, and I love this fantasy take on the animal with all of the bright colors. To finish the costume, I threw on a fluffy jacket I found at a thrift store over a pair of black leggings. This is definitely a makeup-focused look so you can wear whatever you already have, just try to match the color scheme for a more cohesive costume. Anything soft will do.
Have fun recreating this easy look, whether you’re using it as a Halloween costume for school, trick or treating, or a costume party!
