Who loves The Walking Dead as much as I do? I must admit, it’s my guilty pleasure!
Whether you do or you don’t, regardless, you probably know the name “Daryl Dixon”. He is the redneck-turned-hero that is a character favorite on the show, played by the lovely Norman Reedus. I loooooove him!
I’ve been really into trying some fun makeup looks for Halloween, and while all the other ladies are out there dressing up as Kardashians, sexy bananas, or what have you, I thought it would be fun to dress up as a dude – ha! Check out some of my other Halloween looks on Instagram!
Here you go friends, a Daryl Dixon Makeup Tutorial – it’s much simpler than you think!

Eybrows and beard: Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer Eyebrow Mascara, Deep Brown and
Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel. Use both on brows and beard area. The fiber formula is especially great for feathering on a “hair” type of look for the beard. You just need to blend a lot afterward and layer each one several times.
“Dirt”: brown eyeshadow. Any brand will do. Simply use your finger to smudge it on around your face.
Contour: NYX Wonder Stick Highlight & Contour WS01 Light / Medium. This is super effective for darker eye circles, sculpting around the nose and contouring the cheekbones. I also used it on my forehead and to create shadow at the base of my mustache and beard.
Blending Sponge: Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge is what I used, but any good blender will work. You’ll need to layer and blend all that contour!
Fine lines, moles: NYX Micro Brow Pencil-MBP01 Taupe. This was perfect for creating his signature moles and drawing in some deeper fine lines. I also lightly lines the central part of my upper and lower lip with this to appear darker for my facial hair.
After application, I think the key to the look is to blend quite a bit after you have it all layered. I first did my eyebrows and beard too dark, but you can use and eyebrow brush to blend it all in!
What do you think? Did I pull this look off? And if you watch the show, who is your favorite character – humor me!
