Every one of us has a dark side. And a costume party is a great occasion to demonstrate it without harming your own reputation. Let's tell you how to transform into a demon for one evening using ordinary cosmetics

If you decide to transform into a sinister fantasy character for a theme party, but still want to retain human features, demonic makeup is what you need. First, let's figure out what is typical for him.

Demon makeup: creation features

Transforming into a demon with makeup will be much easier than trying to replicate a specific look from a horror movie that more than one make-up artist has worked on. Indeed, within the framework of such makeup, you can experiment. There is no clear framework that would dictate exactly how a demon should look. In this photo tutorial, we decided to create an expressive yet feminine look that contrasts dramatic black with vibrant red. Long black arrows almost to the very eyebrows, blush shaded from the "apples" of the cheeks to the temples, and black lipstick are the main components of the image of the demon, which is especially relevant for the celebration of Halloween.

By the way, in the case of such makeup, the rule of one accent does not apply. Feel free to draw wide arrows or smokey eyes and paint your lips with dark lipstick - make-up-reincarnation simply has to be much more catchy than even the brightest evening make-up.

Don't forget about proper skin preparation. You will be using a lot of products in the demon makeup, so it is important that the skin is hydrated, but at the same time maintains the makeup's durability. You will need a primer, which you need to choose based on the needs of the skin, such as narrowing pores or adding radiance.

If you have combination skin, apply appropriate products to areas with oily or dry skin. It is this technique that underlies multimasking. In the case of a base for makeup, it is also suitable. Read more about primers here.

What cosmetics do you need to create a demonic makeup?

If you like to experiment with makeup, you might already have everything you need in your makeup bag. But it's worth checking again and, if necessary, replenishing your arsenal.


Since one of the main elements of the image is a bright blush, choose a foundation a couple of shades lighter than your skin tone to make the contrast even more noticeable.

A long-lasting product with a dense texture is suitable, which will not float by the end of the party and will not give out imperfections. Like Infaillible by L'Oréal Paris.

As part of the demon make-up, we advise you to opt for a glossy finish. Dark lip gloss or lip lacquer works well. But you can also choose lipstick, which then will be enough to cover with a layer of transparent gloss. By the way, you will have a black or dark plum lipstick like "Wild Grapes" from the Hydra Extreme collection from Maybelline New York.

If you don't have this shade in your cosmetic bag, you can gently mix lipstick with a suitable finish and black shadows on your lips. Read more about how to apply dark lipstick and what to combine it with in this video.


To make eyelashes stand out against the background of very wide black arrows, choose mascara with the effect of volume and lengthening. Like Lash Sensational by Maybelline New York.

Add tufts of false eyelashes if necessary.



You can't do without black shadows if you chose demon makeup. With their help, it is easier to blend the borders of the eyeliner and fill in the gaps if necessary.

Suitable, for example, the shade "Resolute" from the Color Queen line from L'Oréal Paris.

And don't forget the eye primer - without it, all your work may be in vain.


Gel liner is perfect for demonic eye makeup. For example, Gel Intenza by L'Oréal Paris.

It will stay firmly on both the upper and lower eyelids. You can find out what our readers think about this tool here.


And don't forget to color the mucosa with kajal.


Surprisingly, blush is one of the central elements of the demon's image. They make the face more textured and emphasize the cheekbones. Blend them in the direction from the "apples" of the cheeks to the temples so that there are no clear lines.

You can easily find the right shade in the Alliance Perfect collection from L'Oréal Paris.

How to do demon makeup: step by step instructions

You will need:

  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk 2.0 foundation,

  • Maybelline New York Lasting Drama gel eyeliner,

  • Lash Sensational Mascara by Maybelline New York,

  • L'Oréal Paris Color Riche "Red Perfection" red lipstick,

  • NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie Gloss.

The image of a bright and mysterious demon girl can be created using the most ordinary cosmetics. All you need is five products: foundation, black eyeliner, mascara, red lipstick and lip gloss.

  1. Apply foundation in a shade slightly lighter than your skin.

  2. Sharpen the cheekbones, eyelids and sides of the forehead with red blush or lipstick.

  3. Use Maybelline New York's Lasting Drama black eyeliner to draw big arrows going to the temples.

    Emphasize also the lower eyelid and connect the arrows.

  4. Color the mucous membranes with a black pencil, emphasize the eyelashes with black Lash Sensational mascara from Maybelline New York.

  5. Apply Color Riche Lipstick in Red Perfection by L'Oréal Paris.

  6. Using a Q-tip, blend the edges of the red lipstick, going beyond the natural contour of the lips.

  7. With black eyeliner or shadows, paint over the inside of the lips, add a transparent gloss on top for a glossy effect.


How to complement the image: manicure, hairstyle, clothes and accessories

To make the image look whole and harmonious, you should think about the rest of its elements.

  • It is better to refuse floral ornaments or pastel shades on the nails. Solid red, burgundy or black coating will do. Pay attention, for example, to the shade "On the hook" from Essie.

  • The same rule will apply to clothes. For the image of a demon, a red-black gamma is best suited. As for materials, latex and leather will look the most organic. It can be a jumpsuit, a dress or an unusual costume - the choice is yours.

  • Makeup of a demon or devil should be complemented with a suitable styling. Leave complex weaves for another occasion. Natural waves, which seem to be slightly disheveled by the wind, will look much more harmonious. And if you're ready for a full makeover, use a temporary hair dye and highlight a few strands of red.

    Colorista Washout from L'Oréal Paris can easily cope with this task.

  • The final touch will be accessories. You can add horns to the headband yourself at home or buy it ready-made in a carnival costume store. With it you will appear before the guests in all its glory.
