X-men Alien Makeup Idea for Halloween or Costume Party

Fancy going as an alien to a Halloween or costume party?

I recently went to a birthday party where you had to dress up with something that begins with your initial. As my name is Alina I thought I’d go as an alien and I was specifically inspired by Mystique from Xmen.

Firstly, I applied primer, foundation and eye primer. Then contoured my face, filled in my eyebrows and added blusher. I know many people recommend doing this last so do how you feel is best for you.

I thought I’d list the makeup products & brands I used to help you recreate the look if you wanted to:


Liquid blue eyeshadow (used as base as recommended by pixiwoo for texture and longevity | also used for pattern over the finished look) – Bourjois Paris

Light and mid blue eyeshadow – Trio colour Collection from Superdrug

Dark blue eyeshadow – MUA

Pink eyeshadow – old (use any, even a blusher will work)

Fake eye lashes – Makeup Forever

Teal eye liner – Avon


Purple eye cream used on lips – Superdrug’s own

Blue cream eyeshadow used on my lips – Bourjois Paris

I used the Makeup Forever HD Powder and Urban Decay setting spray to ensure the makeup sets in and lasts all night, which worked like a charm!

Alien Makeup Tutorial

I used Pixiwoo’s makeup tutorial to do most of it to be honest and I hope you find it useful as well.

Tweet me via @alinaisaev if you end up going as an alien, I’d love to see how yours turns out!
