Jem Halloween Makeup

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



  • 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).


  • 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).


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

I dressed up as Jem a couple years ago, I will have to dig out my photos :) Personally, I think both looks need MORE GLITTER!! lol or at least some shimmer on that eye make-up!

Thanks for giving Kimber a shout out, PLT! She is one of the most truly outrageous girls on the show!

My best friend and I were Jem and Kimber back in 2004 but we decided to follow the doll's make up rather than the cartoon. Either way, Billyart is correct in that the hair is actually a softer pink. It's a harder wig to find, but worth it! I stumbled upon mine at a Rite Aid.

Wow, with all the interest in Jem, you should have everyone post their Jem Halloween costume looks as a feature, Bella! ;-)

NO. The hair is too PINK and flat. Jem's hair is clearly big spiky, choppy 80's hair, and it's a much softer baby pink than that!

:rotfl: GlowingMoon! You know if I had seen the Mac tutorial first I would've thought it was awesome, but I saw CCee's last week and I was blown away! i think she nailed the colour and density of the pink.

Ooo that was AMAZING Bella! I was Jem last year and I should have paid MUCH more attention to my make-up! I ended up spraying about four cans of pink hairspray in my hair and was so nauseous that I skimped on the most important part — the eyes! Thanks for the wonderful how-to!

I got a chance to see the final product, which looked amazing, so it was really fun to watch the application. I almost spit up my water while watching the Jem transition in the beginning. Hilarious!

both great works! the only difference is the color, one have pale pink, and the other a dark pink, that's all I saw different, the idea is the same... still not try in it, sorry.

CCee's tutorial that she did for my Halloween costume (Jem) is amazing. Better than this, in my opinion, and I am planning on using her tutorial, step-by-step. Thanks again, CCee!!!!!!
