This makeup look is not just for the procrastinators or the busy student out there, but also for those who want to do something simple for Halloween! This time of year is my absolute favorite. I would like to shout out and thank a beautiful Hustle & Highlight follower / supporter, for suggesting I do galaxy Halloween makeup look. This is so much fun to do! I tried sticking to products that are easily accessible and affordable. My Elf small stipple brush was a savior for this look! Besides the glitter liner and face paint palette, I used makeup I already owned in my collection. I used two different lip colors (one bold and one nude) so you could see which one you’d prefer. Throw on some exaggerated false lashes and you’re good to go! Whether it’s an office party or last-minute plans, have fun and be safe!
I’d love to see your galaxy makeup recreation too! Here is what I used and did for mine…

I used the white face paint on my lids and to contour my face. For the Galaxy contour, I placed the purple, pink and blue shadows freely on to the white and used my stipple brush to blend together. I then used a tiny eyeliner brush to make the stars with the face paint.
For the shadow: I placed the Morphe pink shade on the lid. I tried keeping the blue “peacock” color on the outer half of the lid; while the purple “drama queen” was put in the crease. After you blend this together it starts to look more like the Galaxy. As with my contour, I used the white paint to make random stars on the lid. After my regular black liner I used some silver glitter liner to trace the outer part.
As long you use these three colors and blend – have fun with it! The Galaxy isn’t perfect so just freely blend away until you get a starry night effect. Have fun with it and don’t be afraid to go a little makeup crazy for Halloween!
