The hot trend in Halloween makeup this year is definitely the sassy Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad.

What you’ll need:
Face paint – red, blue, white and black
2 pony holders

1. Create a dramatic, thick winged outline around your eye in red. Add a teardrop under your eye to give it Harley’s classic smudged look.
2. Do the same with your other eye but in blue.
2. Do the same with your other eye but in blue and add red  to your lips.
3. Add white dots over your face and down your neck in a triangle pattern that outlines your collar bone.
4. Outline all your features in black. Your brows should be thick with sharp corners. Your cheeks, collar bone, neck, lips and nose should all be bolded with tapered lines. Don’t forget to add the widow’s peak at the top of your forehead and a heart on your cheek!
