Harley Quinn Makeup Tutorial

Suicide Squad was released a few weeks ago and clearly one of the favorite characters is the super hot Harley Quinn.

She may have bad taste in men but still, she's super hot as she is badass and she's got mad skills. She's also literally mad  and she isn't afraid to show it.

Do you want this look for Halloween? Then read on below:

I styled my hair in high pigtails and defined the curls in each tail. Leave two locks of hair loose in front of the face, just like in the movie (I pulled all my hair back though in this tutorial, for illustration purposes). If you have bleached hair, you can color the tips of your hair with blue and red colored hairspray if you want.

Harley has pale skin after falling in a vat of toxic chemicals. I used foundation paler than my own complexion. You can also mix white stage makeup with your own foundation. Remember to set this with powder to avoid the sticky feel.

Make the brows strong and super defined. I used a dark brown eyebrow pencil.

Apply primer to eyes so that the eyeshadow would hold longer. Contour eyes with matte brown shadow to create a defined, deep set crease.

Apply red eyeshadow on the right eyelid and blend this to the crease.

Smudge some of the eyeshadow on the bottom lashline and create a sort of smeared, smudgy look

Do the same with the left eyelid using blue eyeshadow.

 Apply black kohl pencil on the waterline and smudge this with your finger downwards to make the look more smudgy and messy. The lines don't have to be clean, and that's what's great about this look.

Create a cat eye on the top lashline using liquid eye pen or gel eyeliner. Curl lashes and apply mascara and falsies, if desired.

Contour the face for a more sunken look. Prison didn't give Harley the best of health.

Line lips with lipliner and fill in.

Apply a super bright red lipstick. You can smudge it like she had during the later part of the movie but I chose to leave it as it is.

Finally, recreate her face tattoos using eyeliner pen or gel eyeliner. Harley has a heart tattoo on her right cheekbone and the word "ROTTEN" tattooed on her right jaw. You may have a friend do this for you if you're having a hard time writing the word ''Rotten" on your own jaw.

For Harley's costume, wear a baseball shirt-type of top with red sleeves. You may cut holes on the shirt to get that worn look. Wear cheeky shorts or pole shorts in sequined red and bright blue. For footwear, she wore high-heeled sneakers. Accessorize with bling and the "Puddin" choker.

Hopefully that will get your Harley game on come Halloween or a costume party or any time you want to unleash your inner crazy. Have fun playing dress up! Let me know as well in the comments below if you have any tutorial suggestions - clean, glam, or outright crazy.
