Cleopatra, the original #GirlBoss and #BeautyGoals Queen. When she wasn’t ruling her Egyptian empire at the age of 17, she was creating the legendary wing tip eyeliner look. Talk about being ahead of her time! Not on (9).png

Out of all the costume possibilities, the fortune teller look may be the easiest to achieve for the most casual makeup user. If you have already mastered a basic smokey eye look, but you don’t feel comfortable going for an artistic makeup look, the fortune teller costume is for you!

In the simplest terms, the fortune teller Halloween look is a reflection of your everyday makeup, just amped up a bit with glam accents. Depending on your makeup expertise, you can go as simple or bold as you feel comfortable.

If your makeup isn’t as glam as you hoped, you can always make up for it with more accessories, such as colorful headwraps, bangles, piercings, earrings, or face tattoos. However, if you already mastered a dark smokey eye to perfection, then you can amp up the look even more! Fortune tellers are the definition of glam divas for Halloween, so can never do too much. The more, the better!

If you are an expert, make sure you incorporate some glitter throughout your look in unexpected places. We went for an under the eye smoky effect and topped it off with some sparkly accents, to give this look an extra glam and bold appeal.

For the clothing, go for any bohemian-inspired pieces already in your closet. A basic white or black tank top works well, and you can always glam it up yourself with sparkles or a bedazzled jacket. A long bohemian pattern skirt is all you need for bottoms! If you have long, flowy bohemian patterned trousers, those work as well. The bottoms will likely cover your feet, so you can either wear boho sandals or shoes of your choice. As always, be sure to over-accessorize this look! Fortune tellers are notorious for being over the top with jewelry and accents.

Bonus points: This makeup look will look amazing with heavy jewels and colored contacts.

Want to tackle this look? Follow our steps below

  1. Prep your base: You can prep your face as you normally would for any other day. Grab your favorite foundation, primer, and moisturizer and of course, your beauty blender.

  2. Choose your eye color: Because this is a glam look, you can always use your favorite bold eyeshadow palette to create a sensual, but sexy fortune teller eye look.

  3. Add your highlighter: Fortune tellers own the over-the-top highlight, so be sure to pack on your favorite highlighter. Our favorite pro-tip is layering a powder highlighter over a liquid highlighter to create an extra glowy effect.
