Pirate Halloween Costume

Materials Needed:

  • sponge
  • brown eye shadow
  • yellow eye shadow
  • black or dark brown eye shadow (for eyebrows)
  • pencil eyeliner in black or dark brown
  • eyebrow brush
  • eye shadow blending brush
  • stippling sponge
  • eye patch
  • fake mustache (optional)
  • eyelash glue, spirit gum or liquid latex (for attaching mustache)
  • costume (bandana, pirate hat, dirty separates, boots, hook, etc.)

Smudge Eye Shadow on Face

Begin by "dirtying up" the face by using a sponge to smudge brown and yellow eye shadow on child's cheeks, forehead and down the neck (Images 1-3).

Darken Eyebrows and Add Eye Patch

Darken the eyebrows using eye shadow and/or eyeliner pencil, making them look as full and unkempt as possible (Image 1). Tip: The darker the color and more severe the arch, the more menacing your pirate will look. Add an eye patch (Image 2).

Create Dark Circles

On the eye that is not covered, add dark brown eye shadow underneath to mimic dark circles and collected dirt from endless pillaging and those long months at sea (Images 1 and 2).
