Halloween Makeup & Costume | Miss Peregrine

OMG it’s here again! I LOVE Halloween and each year keeps getting better and better. And since it’s my favorite time of year, what better way to celebrate than to play with hair and makeup for our annual Halloween card? Keeping up with tradition, this year I’ve got the hair and makeup need-to-know for a DIY perfectly spooky Miss Peregrine from Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home of Peculiar Children. I first read the book awhile back (and loved it!) and after seeing the movie, it was a no-brainer. This HAD to be this year’s costume! Simply follow these steps and you’ll be just as glamorously spooky as Miss Peregrine herself!



Step 1:
Prep hair with heat protector. Use a pliable medium hold hair spray for curling. When curling wrap and pin. Allow hair to cool before removing pins.
Step 2:
Remove hair pins, and start to pick the curl out in a “S” pattern. You will need to manipulate the hair into the finger waves. Hair going back, then hair going forward.
Step 3:
Pin the back into the finger wave pattern, by twisting and Bobbi pinning hair in a tucked updo. Repeat on the other side of hair.
Step 4:
Use hair chalk to add blue color. This will highlight the “S” shape in the finger waves.



Step 1:
Prep face with makeup primer. Apply your base coat. Use a color that is a shade or two lighter than your natural color to capture that “pale” look.
Step 2:
Brows! Miss Peregrine has a bold, dark brow. We used a pencil to create the sharp edges. Fill in and extend beyond where your natural brow ends.
Step 3:
Dark eyes. Create the wing shape with shadow and fill in. Clean the edges with white powder.
Step 4:
Contour and create a sharp cheekbone. And finish it off with a bold lip.


The blazer & shoes I found at Goodwill. I then DIYed the sleeves of the jacket with fabric I purchased at JoAnn’s. (I love trying to find ways to make my costume unique and one-of-a-kind.) The skirt is from Asos. And the pipe & pocket watch I found on Amazon. Easy peasy, right?!

Make sure to tag @idiehdesign on Instragram and use hashtag #idiehHalloween if you decide to rock this look. I would LOVE to see your creation!

Or if your in the mood for something darker or something completely quirky and fun, check out the looks from Halloween’s past:

Of course all this Halloween magic wouldn’t have been the same without the awesomely talented team! SO SO thankful for you girls and for helping make all my Halloween dreams come true. xo
