Over 40 Halloween Makeup Looks You Should Try

Summer has barely ended and just like that, all the stores have switched their focus to the looming holiday seasons ahead.


Department stores have swapped their vibrant displays for something more "Fall festive" and candy and Halloween decorations are lining the aisle of the drug stores.


Before you know it Part City will have sent out their annual costume catalog and if you wait too long all the  best costumes will be out of stock!!!
When I think of Halloween festivities It's hard not to hear Cady Heron in the back of your head:

"In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it." - Cady Heron, Mean Girls  

This year, instead of dressing up in the same skimpy costumes as every other chick, consider putting your makeup skills to the test, and try recreating some of these incredible looks! 


Below is a list of the most inspiring Halloween makeup we've seen this year + killer tutorials to teach you how to recreate some of these masterpieces. Scroll through, share a few, and save some of your favorite images back to your Pinterest for safe keeping.

💚💙💜Mermaid Skull 💜💙💚 FULL tutorial & product details on YouTube! #TBT from 2017 while I work on this year’s spooky looks. Read below for a life update! • •💀••🧜🏻‍♀️••🐠•• This look and Halloween 2017 was the most growth I ever experienced on social media. Then this video was shared on Reddit, where tons of people commented calling me ugly or saying I look like a man, and it absolutely killed my confidence. This started a bit of a downward spiral for me, and the past couple years I have been absent and avoiding social media because I’ve felt ugly, not good enough, etc, comparing myself to other people. Honestly, I’ve been scared to show my face. It took me a couple years of suffering, ups and downs, the death of my best friend, switching different medications, losing followers and hating myself. I’d love to share all of this with you more all at some point, but for now I want you to know I’m doing better. I’ve been feeling amazing the past month or two, and finally ready to get back on here and give this my ALL! I’ve been saving literally hundreds of ideas that I haven’t executed due to fear and lack of confidence. This Halloween month (I am still in school), I will do my best to pump out a few amazing looks. I will be scheduling livestreams so I can start to hangout with you all again. I want you to know how thankful I am for those of you that have stayed here with me and supported me whenever I posted. Of course I’m just some random account that you follow for a lot of you, but this account and my work has been the air I breath for the past 5 years. And your support in my absence has meant everything to me. I love you all and I can’t wait to catch up with you, reconnect, and do some amazing looks together. ••••••••• #makeuptutorial #halloweenmakeup #halloweenmakeuptutorial #makeupvideo #halloween

💀 Neon Death 💀 What do you think of this makeup? . I was messing around with my uv lights and general lightings and I got crazy cool effects, so except from the transitions, all the colors you see on my skin are real, no filters (like that crazy purple violet, I'm dying) 🤩 . Inspo: 100 % @giuliannaa , check her out 💕and also previous skull looks I've designed myself. The chest part is inspired by @lunafortun I've been wanting to create a neon yellow skull for months now, that beautiful wig convinced me. The accessories are inspired by many of my previous looks, I love using them endlessly by just customizing them ✨ . 🎵Music: @cernes_beats w/ @arthus_rnd - Apophis 🎶 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 🇫🇷 Vous aimez ? J'ai chipoté pendant une éternité avec mes lampes uv et mes éclairages, et j'ai obtenu des effets super cools 😁 donc à part lors des transitions, tous les effets de lumière sur ma peau sont bien réels, pas de filtres (comme le super beau violet, j'aime trop!) 🤩 Toutes mes inspirations pour ce makeup sont notées plus hauts ✨ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Details: Wig: @sapphirewigs_makeup Hand's Armour: @lorysunartistry Headpieces: I've assembled two from Etsy. Teeth: @thegypsyshrine, self painted. @stargazerproducts neon eyeliner and loose powder. @nyxcosmetics_be white and black liquid eye liner. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ ➖ #crazymakeups #hudabeauty #anastasiabeverlyhills #instamakeup #1minutemakeup #makeuptutorial
