To transform your child or yourself into a beautiful butterfly for Halloween, create one large wing over each eyelid and up the forehead using face paint and a wide brush. Line wings with black eyeliner and use white face paint to add dots to wings. Create the butterfly's body between the wings by first drawing an oval above the nose with a black eyeliner pencil. From the bottom of the oval, draw a long, skinny teardrop shape to the tip of the nose to create the butterfly's body. Above the oval, draw lines onto the forehead that curl slightly at the top to resemble antennae. Finish the look with sparkly pink lips. First apply pink lipstick, and then add a dot of glitter right in the center of the lips for shimmer. A black leotard, tights and wings are all you need to complete your costume.
To apply fairy princess makeup, begin with a pearly eye shadow. Then add pink blush on the cheeks. Next, apply self-adhesive glittering jewels on forehead like a princess' tiara, and then apply additional jewels under eyebrows, on cheekbones or anywhere you like. Tip: You can find self-adhesive jewels in the scrapbooking section of your local craft store. Make sure your child doesn't have any adhesive allergies before continuing with this step. Keeping away from the sensitive eye area, dab face lotion on the cheeks and surrounding the jewel tiara on forehead. Have model close her eyes then apply cosmetic glitter where lotion was applied. Paint lips with a sparkly pink lipstick or tinted lip-gloss. Finish the look with a fairy princess costume.
To complete a puppy look for Halloween, pull the puppy's hair into high pigtails to resemble fluffy ears or glue some fabric ears onto a headband. You can use a store-bought costume or a brown sweat suit with spots drawn on with a marker for a quick DIY costume.
In order to give your child the perfect clown makeup for Halloween, use a makeup sponge and brush to apply white makeup to just the eyes and nose. Feather the makeup around the outside edges of the face so it fades softly. Use a makeup brush and blue face paint to draw a half circle over one eye following the brow line. Blend the blue and white. Do the same thing to half of the other eye, using red face paint. Next, add yellow face paint to the rest of the eyebrow and the upper lid. Blend slightly. Use a black eyeliner pencil to make a half circle above the child's natural eyebrow, then a line that follows the natural brow. Use a craft brush with red paint to make three small circles on one cheek. On the opposite cheek, draw a large circle with pink face paint. To make a clown mouth, first use red lip liner to line just outside the lips, then fill in. Extend the lines out from the edge of the natural lips and add little circles at the end. Outline lips with black liquid eyeliner. As a final accent, draw some lines just below the lower eyelid. Naturally curly hair (or a wig) is ready to clown around and just needs a nose. Oversized clothes or a clown costume finishes this big-top look.
