Have you started to plan your Halloween costume yet?
If you’re a fan of Suicide Squad, then you’re really in luck too, because there are tons of Suicide Squad Halloween makeup tutorials to get you ready for your big day — which is great, because for a lot of these looks, the makeup is every bit as important as the costume itself.
YouTube’s got pretty much every aspect of the movie covered, especially where the ever-awesome Harley Quinn is involved — I have a feeling that Harley will be joining the ranks of Daenerys Targaryen and Queen Elsa as popular platinum blond costumes this year. There’s clubbing Harley, there’s glamorous Harley, there’s even pop art-style Harley — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. After all, a lot of the other characters in the film rocked some pretty great beauty looks too, and it’s definitely worth giving those a look as well.
Any way you cut it, Suicide Squad featured some majorly on point makeup looks, from the Joker’s bleached eyebrows, to Harley Quinn’s mismatched eyeshadow, to Katana’s wicked eyeliner. Honestly, any of the 11 tutorials listed below will take you far in your quest to win any costume contest you choose to enter — so read on for some major Halloween inspiration.
1. Harley Quinn Tutorial
YouTube tutorialist Miranda Hedman has an absolutely spot-on tutorial for Harley’s signature look.
2. Harley Quinn Club Tutorial
Hedman also has a slightly amped-up version of the look — this look is just as perfect as the last, but with added glitter (and glitter makes everything better).
3. Glam Harley Quinn Tutorial
Much like the clubbing tutorial above, this tutorial takes Harley’s look and amps it up a notch for a night out. In other words perfect for all the cool parties you’ll be heading to this Halloween!
4. Pop Art Harley Quinn Tutorial
You know how there’s always at least one person at the party who likes to go as a Lichtenstein girl? Well, now you can rock the Lichtenstein look at the same time as the Suicide Squad look.
5. Joker Tutorial
This tutorial is pretty spot on, from the forehead tattoo and non-existent brows, all the way down to the redder-than-red lips.
6. Female Joker Tutorial
If you’re looking to genderbend things this Halloween, the Joker’s signature look is just as striking for women as it is for Jared Leto.
7. Katana Makeup Tutorials
Katana also had a majorly covetable look, what with her graphic eyeliner and cooler-than-cool mask — it’s definitely another great option for the Halloween season.
8. Enchantress Cosplay Tutorial
If you’re not dressing as Harley Quinn, chances are you’re going to want to take Enchantress’ creepy-cool look out for a spin.
9. El Diablo Tutorial
This one works on multiple levels — even if people don’t immediately get the Suicide Squad reference, you can’t really lose with anything skull-inspired on Halloween.
10. Suicide Squad Manicure Tutorial
If you’re not looking for a full-on makeover, this manicure’s a fun way to pay homage to the film without going too crazy.
11. Harley Quinn x Joker Kids Tutorial
And last but not least, If you’ve got some little ones in your life, this tutorial’s downright adorable (if a little messed up, given the Joker’s mistreatment of Harley).
