The Nightmare Before Christmas Sally Inspired Eye Makeup

header picture rights go to @GlitterGirlC on youtube.

It’s almost Halloween! I was supposed to post this tutorial on Monday, however I got held up so I will be posting three posts today! Now, here are some things you will need for this Nightmare Before Christmas eye makeup!

You will need to do your normal face makeup if you would like, but I am going to list the products that you can use for this makeup.

  • Eyelid primer (this just helps the shadow stay in place and stick to your lids)
  • Blue eyeshadow
  • Blue eyeliner (optional)
  • Yellow or gold eyeshadow
  • Green Eyeshadow (a lighter tone and a darker tone)
  • Pink eyeshadow
  • Black liquid eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • False Eyelashes (optional)
  • Sponge Applicators
  • 1 Eyeshadow brush


  1. Prime your eyelids like normal and make sure all the way up to your brow is primed up since this makeup takes up a majority of your eye.
  2. When I did this makeup, I started in the front all the way back, so take a sponge applicator and apply some light blue to the tip and just apply it to the corner of your eye.
  3. If you have blue eyeliner just draw a small line, do not draw the stitch marks until the end.
  4. Now fill in some gold or yellow eyeshadow so it reaches almost the center of your eyelid.
  5. Draw a line using black liquid eyeliner and draw a line at the end of your gold portion.
  6. While you have the eyeliner still out leave a bigger mark for your green part and draw a line at the end of that.
  7. Take a lighter green on an applicator and fill in that box you made for yourself.
  8. If you are really good at drawing shapes on your eyelid, draw some circles on your eyelid using a darker green shadow, or cheat and trace something small that is a circular shape.
  9. On the other side of your line you drew, apply the same gold color you did previously and leave a small part at the end of your eye for your “wing.”
  10. For the wing you’re going to take your blue eyeliner and draw a normal wing except it needs to go more vertical than a regular wing.
  11. Now do a line almost identical to the line you just did and make it more slanted but still vertical.
  12. Take the blue eyeshadow you used before and apply it in the wing that you just made.
  13. Take a thin eyeshadow brush and put some hot pink shadow on it and just rub it on the left side of the wing and on the other side of the wing so it is above the center of the first gold section.
  14. Take a cotton applicator with some pink shadow and apply it on your lower waterline.
  15. Open up your black eyeliner and draw the stitch marks on the black lines and just line your eye but don’t do a wing.
  16. If you line your lower waterline line it also.
  17. Apply two layers of mascara.
  18. If you are using falsies, just apply them now. If you are not, just apply a lot more coats of mascara.
  19. Take your blue eyeliner and draw the stitches on the first line you made and also draw stitch designs in your wing.

Now you are all done!
