Makeup Looks Inspired by "It" Are Taking Over Instagram – Allure Magazine
The only thing that makes my skin crawl more than It is the looks inspired by the new movie that are taking over my Instagram feed. I did not ask for this, people. I don’t have any plans to see the movie, but I’m still getting alarmed every time I pull up Instagram on my phone. (The scariest movie I’ve ever seen is Disturbia, and I plan to keep it that way.)
Makeup artists have been recreating the full-face clown makeup look that Pennywise has or painting on mini versions of him on their lids. I respect and fear their dedication to the horror movie that I’m just not mentally, physically, or emotionally ready to see. However, I know many of you have probably already seen It twice since it came out last week or you’re planning to see it this coming weekend. In the case that you want to do your makeup for the occasion in the same vein of people dressing up like their favorite Harry Potter characters to see the movies, I’ve rounded up some of the best makeup looks inspired by It.
Let’s start small with some miniature clown action. As mentioned, makeup artists have been pulling out their thinnest liner brushes to create teeny clown heads on their eyelids.
For a less obvious It-inspired look, other makeup artists have been lining their lips outside the usual perimeter to give them a creepy clown-like shape.
The most daring makeup artists have dedicated their entire face to the It fantasy.
If I had to partake in creating It makeup for Halloween, I’d take inspiration from these glittery looks. Dare I say, they are kind of chic.
