Halloween Costumes For Gingers: David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust

David Bowie Ziggy Stardust Make-Up

David Bowie is one of the most iconic voices and faces from the Eighties, and we like to think his ginger persona, Ziggy Stardust is the greatest.

Why, you ask? Because he’s ginger!

Also, Bowie’s costumes are simply incredible, so it’s fun to be metallic once in a while! Let your red hair shine even more than it already does by dressing up as David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust for Halloween.

As important as your Bowie costume is, it’s the lightning bolt make-up that will steal the show.

This look is super simple to achieve with the right tools. Barry M has some nifty eye pencils in pink and blue, which are perfect for this.

First, trace the lines of the lightning bolt across your face. Then, have lots of fun colouring it in!

Team with black eyeliner, mascara and a pale foundation (which, duh, you’ll already have!) and you’re done.
