7 Best Superhero Makeup Ideas for Kids

1) Superman or SuperGirl

Superman is one of the most celebrated superheroes and for good reasons too. If you are looking for a superhero with super speed, extraordinary strength, and a heart of gold, here is your man.

The superhero makeup for this figure has very little to do with actual makeup. Once you put on the Superman costume of the blue bodycon suit, a red cape, red pants, and slicked-back hair (for guys) you instantly get transformed into this superhero.

The best part is that the Superman costume can be found online on Amazon.

A female would typically just skip the slicked back hair and instead, apply makeup.

For this, your regular makeup will do. You aren’t required to make up a certain way to be Superman or Supergirl.

Once you wear the costume, which can be gotten from Amazon or your local store, you instantly transform into Wonder Girl.

You could, however, purchase a Wonder Girl forehead crown online or as an alternative, paint one on your forehead.

If going with the latter, then what you want to do is draw out the shape of the crown on your forehead using a dark yellow eye pencil. Next, fill this in using a slightly lighter yellow paint (yellow eyeshadow also works fine for this).

As a final touch, draw and paint a red star at the center of your forehead and your wonder girl getup is complete.
