Hello Dolls!

I wanted to create something fun and easy for a last minute Halloween idea. This is a retro bow/ribbon eye makeup look and can be created using your regular makeup at home, no special fx makeup needed!

Hope you enjoy!


  • NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk
  • Cascada Of Colours Black Eye Pencil
  • Glazel Visage Cosmetics Black Eyeshadow 
  • Glazel Visage Cosmetics Blue Eyeshadow
  • Impala Cosmetics Black Eyeliner Pencil 
  • Mehron White Prisma Shadow Palette
  • False Lashes
  • MAC Kohl Pencil Black (waterline)
  • Glazel Visage Cosmetics Blue Eyeshadow (lips)
  • Glazel Visage Cosmetics Blush 



  1. Apply a white base over entire eyelids. I used NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk.
  2. Create the outline of the bow design with a black eyeliner pencil.
  3. Start shading in the outer edges to create dimension.
  4. Begin filling in the bow with any color of your choice, I chose blue.
  5. Blend out the inner edges of the bow to a light blue and the outer edges to a darker blue to create a three dimensional bow with depth.
  6. Using the tip of a round pointed brush and draw white dots for a fun retro look.
  7. Add white to the outer edges of the design for a fun highlighted effect. Also fill in the lid with white eyeshadow.
  8. Define the crease with black eyeshadow.
  9. Line your eyes in black add add false eyelashes for a doll eyed look.
  10. Apply a rosy pink lipcolor for a fun doll look or add a wild color like blue for an editorial costume look. Your look is complete!
