Can you believe I made this creepy Halloween costume for less than $5?! I bought a few bags of googley eyes from the dollar store and used some make up I already had at home.
This costume turned out so much better and CREEPIER than I was expecting and I love it! I mean, yeah, it’s a bunch of googley eyes stuck to my face so I didn’t have very high hopes of not looking ridiculous. I was pleasantly surprised!
Here’s what I used to create this creepy Halloween costume:
In a nutshell, I simply glued the googley eyes all over my face. But there are a few tricks to make the process a little easier and make sure the eyes stick.
Using a blush brush, apply black eyeshadow to your whole face and neck. You’ll want to cover your eyes, nose, lips, and hairline really well. Apply your black lipstick and put black eyeshadow around your lips, too. If you waited to do this after the eyeballs where glued on, you’d probably get lipstick all over them since they overlap your lips in some spots.
I started glueing the eyes on before I realized I needed to do this first. I think it would look much better if the spaces in between the googley eyes were black instead of just my skin color.
Eyelash adhesive isn’t very sticky right out of the tube. It’s best to wait for the glue to dry a little and become tacky before applying the googley eyes.
Working in small patches, spread a thin layer of eyelash adhesive directly onto your face. Allow the adhesive to dry for 30-60 seconds and then apply the googley eyes. Hold for a few seconds to ensure they eyes will stay in place. Repeat until your whole face is covered.
That’s it! Put on a black hoodie and just like that you’re a creep! Oh, and don’t forget to glare. Creepy eyeball monsters are known for their glaring abilities. 😉
When you take the googley eyes off, you’ll be left with a whole lot of glue on your face. Don’t panic! Some exfoliating face cleaner, coconut oil, and a little patience is all you need! And if you happen to get any of the eyelash adhesive in your hairline, conditioner with take it right out.
Eyeballs seem to be a theme for me this Halloween. I just can’t get enough!
I shared these eyeballs cookies early this week.
