Harley Quinn Suicide Squad Makeup Tutorial

One of my favorite Halloween makeup looks that I created last year is Harley Quinn from the Suicide Squad movie. We had so much fun dressing up last year as Harley and Joker and I feel that this year this couple costume will be popular too. This Harley Quinn makeup tutorial will be handy if you decide to recreate the look at home!

Before we begin, let me give you a roundup of the tools that I used to create this look. All of those items are budget-friendly and available on Amazon (+ free shipping if you are an Amazon Prime member).

I also list below all of the details on my outfit, as it was not that easy to find the exact items you need to create the Harley Quinn look as it was played by Margot Robbie.

How to DIY Harley Quinn’s Suicide Squad Makeup

This look is very easy to repeat, especially if you have a basic Halloween makeup kit. You will also need a highlighter brush as it allows creating a signature Harley Quinn’s running eye makeup look. Also, don’t forget about a makeup setting spray if you want your makeup to last for more than a few hours.

Step 1: How to Apply a White Base 

Start with a white paint from your Halloween makeup kit. Apply it with a synthetic brush (I picked my favorite concealer brush by e.l.f. cosmetics) and then blend your “foundation” with a beauty sponge (I used this affordable alternative of a beauty blender).

Depending on your costume, you can cover the neck or not. Since I wore a choker, I opted out and applied a white base only on my face.

Step 2: Go for Black, Defined Brows

Fill in your brows using a black eyeshadow (mine is from Nikkie Tutorials The Power of Makeup Palette) and your favorite angled brush (mine is from EWC Strut Boldly Collection).

Step 3: Create Harley Quinn Eyeshadow Look

Pick a red color from your Halloween makeup palette and apply it on your top and lower lid and also on the outer bottom corner of your right eye. Don’t try to make your eye makeup perfect: for Harley Quinn’s look the messier you are the better!

Using a fan brush start distributing the product towards the cheek so you create an effect of “leaking” eye makeup.

Repeat the same on the left eye using a blue shade from your makeup kit.

Step 4: Go for Big Dramatic Lashes

Put on your favorite false lashes. I used dramatic ones by Make Up For Ever.

You might experience problems with sticking your falsies on top of the the cream eyeshadow look. If so, apply a tiny amount of the same color eyeshadow close to your lash line – lash glue sticks so much better to the dry shadows!

Step 5: The Eyeliner Trick

Using a soft black eye pencil, outline the top and bottom lid. Using an angled brow brush, blend the product sideways and up and down to create a more messy look.

Step 6: The Heart “Tattoo”

Using the same pencil, draw a heart on your right cheek. To make this “tattoo” pop a little more, follow up with the sketch marker eye pencil.

Step 7: Finish with the Red Lipstick

Apply your favorite shade of bright red lipstick. I picked Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Dashing that features a creamy, but long-lasting formula and doesn’t make my lips dry.
