Amy Winehouse Costume Ideas
Cosmetics can help you look like Amy Winehouse. (make-up image by PHOTOFLY from

Amy Winehouse is a flamboyant singer from Britain who is often photographed with a retro hairstyle from the 1960s. Amy's look is a popular costume for Halloween or a costume party. Her style is easy and inexpensive to duplicate with items that you may already possess.


Apply a liberal amount of foundation to cover any flaws and even out your complexion. The foundation should look slightly pasty. Amy Winehouse wears heavy foundation when she is performing, and is known for having a light complexion. Next, consider your eyes. Amy Winehouse wears an exaggerated amount of make-up on her eyes. She lines her eyelids with black eyeliner. Use a liquid or a gel eyeliner for staying power. Apply the make-up with a brush. Be liberal with the eyeliner, creating an extra thick line on the lid. Amy Winehouse's eye make-up slants upwards towards her temples. Wear a light-coloured lipstick like rose or pale pink. Draw a beauty mark like Marilyn Monroe, using the black eye liner.


Amy wears her hair in a style called a beehive. If you have long, black hair, simply curl your hair in loose curls and pile it high on your head, securing the hair with pins and hairspray. Leave some of your hair down in the back, so it flows to your shoulders. If you do not have long hair, the beehive look can be achieved with a wig made up of messy curls piled high. Your beehive does not have to look perfect, a sloppy, wild look is fitting.

Body Decorations

Place temporary tattoos on your forearms and chest. Amy Winehouse has visible tattoos on her left and right forearms and on her chest, over her left breast. She also wears large hoop earrings and at least five gold necklaces at once.


Wear a short dress or a blouse and a short skirt. Amy has been pictured wearing simple outfits that show off her legs. You can opt to wear either heels or flats.
