The Best Halloween Makeup Looks To Get You Inspired

October is upon us and while there’s still a few weeks left before you need to perfect your Halloween makeup, it’s always good to be prepared! Using makeup as part of your costume is great if you don’t want to have to spend money on an outfit you might only wear once and there’s so many cute, creepy or ghoulish looks that can be created. So if you’re wanting to take your costume to the next level this October check out these amazing Halloween makeup looks that we’re loving.

You’re probably going to see a lot of Pennywise inspired costumes this Halloween, so why not try a different take on the clown makeup? We love how simple and easy this look is – all you really need is some bright eye shadow and a bright lipstick and you’re good to go.

2. Mermaid glam

Our girl Shan always serves looks at Halloween, (we’re still waiting to see what she’ll create this year), but last year she created this gorgeous mermaid glam look. You can learn how to get the complete look on her YouTube channel.

In my opinion, dressing up as a cat is always a good idea and pretty simple. All you need is to invest in a good black eye-liner and a pair of cat ears and you’re good to go.

4. Skull face

If you want something a little creepier for Halloween you can try your hand at skeleton makeup. While it may look hard, once you get into it it’s not too bad and all you need is some white powder, and black eyeliner, eye-shadow or face paint.

5. Galaxy

Become one with the universe and adorn your face with glitter and metallic colours.

6. Queen of hearts

I had the honour of @disneylandparis asking me to create 5 makeup designs for the park for Halloween 2017 Season! Here is my Queen of Hearts ?❤️ design. To create graphic shapes I designed the facial stickers and had them made bespoke, especially for this look. I used my airbrush makeup machine to shade the eyes, contour, blush and pale skin. For the full tutorial head over to @disneylandparis YouTube channel this week. Thank you to my lovely team @julien_rol_official and Jessica Blackman for assisting me this weekend on this lovely makeup adventure in the Magical Kingdom #disneylandparis #dlp #halloween #queenofhearts #skullmakeup #skulltress #artoftheday #artsviral #disney

We love the little curl on the eyebrow in this look.
