Looking for your own Egyptian Goddess costume this Halloween? There are plenty of powerful goddesses to choose from when deciding on an outfit to wear and below I’ll give ideas for a selection of the most popular including Cleopatra (of course), Egyptian cat and Isis.
Ancient Egypt is many people’s favorite time period, it’s one most learn about as children in school and so it holds a fond memory. Learning about the mummies and how each king and queen is embalmed preserved for years to come is a fascinating concept for people of all ages.
As well as featuring prominently in history classes, these great gods also showed up in art class and I could remember learning that each deity was drawn in the exact same way. In such way that wouldn’t be humanly possible, while their drawings may be out of reach their outfits are as popular as ever for fancy dress.

Egyptian Goddess Eye Makeup Tutorial
- To recreate a similar cat’s eye look like the video start priming your eyes with a white eye pencil, rub this in to create your base shaping it into a cat eye so the other colors can ‘pop’.
- Dab gold glitter onto the primer. Then take an aqua blue liner to outline on the eyelid crease. Next use your black liner on the upper lash line make sure to extend the wing further than your natural lashes.
- Extend your eye towards your nose using black liner so your have it going both directions, take your time doing this as it’s easy to mess up. Glitter can make the liner hard to see so finish off with a black pencil. Don’t forget a final application of your favorite mascara.
