Cobweb eye make-up tutorial

A few nifty tricks and a trusty eyeliner are all you need to pull off this spooky Halloween make-up look.

We might be scared of spiders when we find them lurking in the bathtub, but when it comes to this creepy cobweb design we might have to rethink our concerns!

This quick and easy Halloween make-up tutorial will take you less than five minutes to apply, but makes an effective addition to any Halloween costume - or, of course, a costume in itself, if you're not willing to don the full hat and cloak but still want to get into the spirit of the season.

You will need

  • Black gel eyeliner with a brush
  • Grey eyeshadow (this can be matte or have a hint of shimmer)
  • A small, soft eye make-up brush for blending

How to create cobweb eye Halloween make-up

  • Start by applying your normal face of make-up, if you wish - we've applied a neutral base of foundation and concealer and some winged eyeliner
  • Using the black gel eyeliner, draw a line extending from the corner of your eye across your temple
  • Repeat the process until you have four corresponding lines
  • Connect the lines to create the cobweb shape
  • Add a light layer of grey or black eyeshadow around the edges of the web to give it some depth
  • Smudge to combine
  • Use the black gel eyeliner to retrace the lines of the web for definition
  • Head to your Halloween party in style!

Tip: Make your cobweb more cutesy and less creepy by drawing a small spider hanging from one of the threads! This make-up would also work with other colours of eyeshadow like purple or green.
