Step-by-Step Spider Web Eyeliner Makeup Tutorial
Create the perfect, smooth canvas by applying a makeup primer.
Dot and blend in a green color-correcting concealer on any redness and under your eyes.
Apply and blend in a medium-full coverage foundation that has a natural finish.
Use concealer as necessary to cover blemishes, remaining redness, and to brighten dark under-eye circles.
I know this sounds a little kooky, but fill in your brows with black eyeshadow. Use a small angled brush to assist you with this. It’s going to look really dramatic at first but will tie in with the overall look perfectly once it’s complete.
Continue by applying a sandy, metallic eyeshadow over your entire eyelid up to the crease of your eye. If you’re using a liquid eyeshadow, which I’d highly recommend, bust out some “Thriller” dance moves and wait for it to dry before moving on.
Once the metallic eyeshadow base is dry, top it off with pumpkin-colored glitter eyeshadow. Like the eyeshadow base, go with a liquid (glitter) eyeshadow because it will be easier to work with than a powder eyeshadow with glitter and a lot less messy.
On to the main event! Use a black liquid eyeliner to line your upper lash line. Extend the line out to create the centerline of your spooky spider web on one eye. Next, draw a line from the outer corner of your eye up towards your eyebrow. Then draw a line, starting at the same point, down over the very top of your cheekbone. Connect these 3 lines however you’d like to create your web. I connected mine vertically and diagonally. I made some lines thick and others very thin. I even played with the coloring a bit by making some lines opaque black and others lighter and smokier.
The eyeliner on the other eye is pretty simple. Line your upper lash line and draw a small wing.
Turn the drama up even higher by applying a pair of false lashes. If falsies aren’t your thing you could trade them in for a lengthening and volumizing mascara. But, since this is a Halloween makeup look, I encourage you to go all out and put on some false lashes! If you don’t know how to apply them or find them intimidating, check out my video below. I not only walk you through creating this look step-by-step, but I also break down how to apply false eyelashes.
To complete your eye makeup, apply black gems to the 3 points of your spider web and to the end of your eyeliner wing on the other eye. Even if the gems are self-adhesive, you may want to apply them with eyelash glue for extra security.
It’s not necessary, but if you’d like to and you have time to go ahead and apply a dark mauve blush. I’m really loving the specific blush that I used in this look because it actually has a slight greenish highlight to it. I blended this blush in a ton so the highlight is very subtle but still stunning. For a spookier, undead look, don’t blend the blush in too much. Let it do its thing.
On my lips, I went with a matte black liquid lipstick that has very fine silver glitter in it. I think the black lipstick does a stellar job of highlighting the black, sparkly spider web eyeliner and black brows.
To finish your look, spritz on a setting spray to ensure your look lasts all night long.
