Hello everyone!

As promised in last week's Halloween Costume Ideas post, this week we'll be talking our favourite creepy make up looks for the season. This year, we've been on the lookout for looks that are a little different from the norm, so keep reading to see which ones we've picked out!

One of our favourite beauty YouTuber when it comes to Halloween make up, Nicole goes ALL out with the halloween make up and we love it! 'The Candy Killer' is such a fun yet creepy make up look. We love the effect the the melting blue candy has: it adds so much depth to the look. Our favourite details within this make up look has to be the eyebrows and teardrop created out of real 100s and 1000s and the bleeding gum balls on Nicole's temples. As you can probably tell we are pretty much obsessed with this look!

From the huge blockbuster this summer, we can imagine a lot of people are going to be dressing up as Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. We love this make-up look as it’s simple to re-create, and you can go as messy and halloween-y as you like with it, adding cuts and bruises like the photo below. Just make sure to use the classic Harley colours of blue and red and don't forget the beauty spot!

This final look is definitely more creepy and harder to recreate, but looks incredible. Taking inspiration from Snapchat, YouTuber Jordan Hanz has taken the ‘face swap’ filter literally, imagining what it’d look like with a creepy face transplant.

This half skull make up look by Desi Perkins is pure scary. Although we find this make up look quite chilling we also really appreciate the art and skill that has gone into creating it. We love how Desi has incorporated some glam into the look on the left eye, the texture of the dripping skin is just genius! The skull element of the make up look is created to a high standard and looks clean and detailed which is tricky when you're working with black and white face paint: it's so easy to end up with just a grey smudgy mess! Bravo Desi!


Halloween-Inspried Nails has become a bigger trend than ever this year too which we LOVE. Here's a few of our favourites: ‘no nails’ nails - a simple idea but done SO well and these amazing ghost/shadow nails created with a gel polish. Both done by nail artist Narmai.

We hope this post has inspired you to be creative with your make up look this halloween. If you wanted even more inspiration we also created a similar post last Halloween which you can find here.
