The Snapchat obsession began when the app introduced the Snapchat filter which allows you to take a picture or film yourself with some cool CGI effects. But who says you need a phone to get that filter look? With makeup and the internet, anything is possible! We’ve selected some makeup tutorials for some Snapchat filters which would be ideal for Halloween. Click on the arrows to begin.
1. The Dog
This filter is one of the most popular on Snapchat. The eyes and face makeup are pretty simple, but the demanding segment is the nose. To accomplish that animated nose look, you will need face paint, small brushes and a lot of practice. In the video description box, Jessica Harlow has also attached a printable set of cut-out ears for the finished dog look. This look is perfect for a last-minute Halloween costume idea.
2. Glittery Lion
This look necessitates a liquid foundation that is a shade lighter than your normal skin tone to achieve a “filtered” look. You don’t need face paint for this look, but a few eyeliner pens would come in handy for that sleek, intense cat eye and the black lion nose. Finish off this look with some gold glitter around your cheeks and forehead for a more glamorous look, but be sure not to forget the whisker-like dots around the mouth!
3. Crying Comic Filter
Now, you can be a comic book character just like Wonder Woman! This look requires a lot of precision at the eyebrows and face for that cartoon look, so don’t feel bad if you messed up the first time. You will, however, need blue face paint and a paint brush for the tears at the right eye for a completed look (take extra caution especially since the paint will be near the eyes). This look is surprisingly manageable but you’d probably want to avoid this look if you’re afraid of scaring people at night.
4. Vomiting Rainbow
This filter may be old, but is definitely gold. This look involves a lot of pink blush on your nose and cheeks, false eyelashes and white eyeliner for that wide-eyed look. Also, face paint would be required for the rainbow part of the look. On the other hand, it would be advisable to make the rainbow from your chin onwards to be straight – otherwise, it will look disjointed when you look up.
You don’t need much makeup for this but the skull look calls for a lot of black and white face paint. To curb blunders, it would be prudent to outline the black parts of the skull before filling them in. Finish this look with some brown eyeshadow to create hollow cheeks at the side of the skull. Be warned that you might not be recognisable after finishing this look.
You’ll need a lot of eyeliner for the eye circles and cute nose. In addition, you’d require two shades of foundation for the gradual darkening from the nose to the rest of your face. Get a pair of panda ears and a flower crown for the completed makeup look! Bonus: It definitely hides any undereye circles you’ve been wanting to conceal!
7. Mouth on Eyes
The name of this filter does not do its eeriness justice. Promise Phan’s tutorial is pretty tricky because its requires a lot of precision to attain the life-like “lips” makeup on your eyes. For maximum precision, a paint palette and sharp brushes are a must. Also, be sure use a lip liner that is the same colour as your lip makeup for that day to outline the “lips” around your eyes. As this look is centred on the eyelids, be sure to take extra caution to prevent the paint from getting into your eyes.
