Best Halloween Makeup Ideas to match your look…

The un-dead

Halloween is perhaps the only time when we look at being or hanging around the un-dead. These between-life-and-death creatures, aka zombies, are a popular Halloween go-to due to the spooky effect it commands.

Quirky clown

Classic clown face makeup will take away the burden of a full costume, and it’s just the right amount of scare for the night. If you’re doing something like this Sydney’s look, take pride in the fact that you get to rock these max lashes that look off on a regular day.

Lady mischief

Halloween night doesn’t have to be a gloomy night, so feel free to play with some color. When attempting this look, be prepared to run through a bunch of eyeshadow palettes because the more color, the merrier.


We absolutely love Melissa’s take on the classic avatar look — blue, gooey, and surprisingly cute. It will take a lot of body paint, though, but you can definitely DIY this, don’t you think?

Lovey-dovey boo

Fall in love with this loveable clown, shimmering and shining just for the dark night. Some pink hearts on your eyes, matte pink lips, and plenty of highlighters. Now, you’re now the lovey-dovey boo!
