Harley Quinn Inspired Halloween Tutorial

Hi Guys,

It's safe to say I'm a tad excited for the new Suicide Squad film and who better to be for Halloween than Harley Quinn. I thought I'd join in with all of the Halloween tutorials this year and although it's been a little tricky to whittle down the looks, Harley had to be one of them after being a b
Batman fan for years!
It's also an easy look to recreate and something that can actually be put together quite quickly, hair wise though I would recommend using actual coloured hairsprays. Unlike me who decided to use lipstick, as I forgot the hairspray and I'm now going to college with blue and red streaks stained into my hair...
The look itself if you stick to the new suicide squad version, is pretty straight forward and doesn't require a lot of products to achieve it, altogether I used...
  • Sugarpill Shadow in Love +, Tako and Velocity
  • MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Zero
  • Me Me Me Enchanted Eyes Pencil in Midnight Storm
  • Clinique High Impact Mascara 
  • Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Berber
  • Illamasqua Precision Brow Gel in Strike
  • Illamasqua Skin Base in 01
  • Illamasqua Lipstick in Box
  • Illamasqua Powder Shadow in Obsidian 

I started off by filling in my brows like usual using strike, Margot Robbie's version of Harley has her usual brows. Though you could alternate the red and blue just like on the eyes. Harley Quinn just like the Joker usually has white face paint on too, however face paint isn't the best at lasting. So if you would prefer it to stay put, Illamasqua Skin Base in 01 is fantastic, though grab it quick, it notoriously goes out of stock at this time of year. Finishing the base by setting it with Tako, especially under the eye for more coverage.

On the eyes I primed with Soft Ochre, followed by smudging the red, Love + over my right eye, I brought the red down under the eye too. However when running under the eye, I missed a gap in the middle to make it more disconnected. I repeated this on the left eye with Velocity, but changing it, to be brought up towards the brow and completely ran under the eye. 

I wanted to darken up the eyes slightly, so you can really be as messy with your liner as you like for this part, I used Obsidian to smudge into the top lash line with Velocity, however as well as doing the same with the red, I also added more through the crease of the eye. Followed by tight lining the top and bottom water lines with Zero, really darkening up the red. However also adding Midnight Storm to the bottom waterline of the blue eye. Finishing with a coat of mascara, which again you can be as messy as you like. 
Finally for the finishing touches I used Zero to draw a much bigger than I thought haha, Heart under the red toned eye. You can leave it as it is, just like the tattoo that Margot's character does, but I added a touch of sparkle by pressing Berber over the top. On the lips I finished it with a simple red lip, using Box.

I hope all of that actually made sense and I'm hoping to carry on the rest of the run up to Halloween with a few fun tutorials, maybe some cupcakes too...
