Halloween How-To: Jem

If you want to look truly outrageous this Halloween, we've got some great tips from MAC makeup artists Louise Zizzo and Sarah Dean, who transformed us into a glam-rock version of the '80s cartoon. Check out this video for tips on how to achieve this look, along with specific color suggestions from Zizzo and Dean when you read more.

Complexion:

  • Start off with a matte foundation in a shade lighter than you'd normally wear for a cartoonish effect. Dean used Studio Fix Foundation in NC15 ($26). Blend well around the neck. When finished with entire makeup, set with Blot Powder ($21).

Eyes:

  • Outline — Zizzo used a Brow Finisher pencil ($15) to create the triangular shape outlining the eye area.
  • Fill in — Using a vibrant pink shade, Zizzo applied Chromacake in Pink Vivid inside the lines. If you are unable to locate this professional product, try alternative pink shades — Sushi Flower Eyeshadow ($14.50) or Powder Blush in Fleur Power ($18).

Lips:

  • Use a concealer to tone down the natural lip color. Apply a bold shade of pink like Lipstick in Pink Nouveau ($14).
