Halloween is basically a beauty junkie’s dream. When else do you get to put on crazy, over-the-top makeup and then go out in public? Makeup can take basically any costume to the next level – or even replace a costume altogether!
Whether you want to look spooky or sexy, check out these awesome Halloween makeup tutorials for a look that’ll make you the envy of everyone at the party.
Hooked Mermaid (via beeisforbeeauty on YouTube):
This look is super sexy, if a bit scaly. That is, until people see the GIANT HOOK PROTRUDING FROM YOUR JAW! If you can’t decide whether to be pretty or gruesome this Halloween, who says you have to choose?
You’ll look so cute that puppies will be jealous. Just be sure you’re prepared to deal with the onslaught of “hey foxy lady” pickup lines.
Snapchat Rainbow (via Getting Pretty on YouTube):
If you want a topical costume that’ll have everyone talking, this surprisingly easy tutorial is for you.
Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad (via Alexa Poletti on YouTube):
She’s niche enough that you get to score some geek cred, yet recognizable enough that people won’t be asking who you are all night.
Creepy Broken Doll (via Julie Quynh Do on YouTube):
This one’s sure to scare your friends. And everyone else at the party. And people passing by the window outside. This costume will get a lot of attention, is what we’re saying.
Sexy Pirate (via Miranda Hedman on YouTube):
Because sometimes you just want to look hot, even on Halloween.
Tiger (via Sheling Beauty on YouTube):
This is so much more than swiping a few stripes across your face. You’ll look positively feline with this realistic tutorial.
Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (via Lisa Eldridge on YouTube):
All you need to add is a tiara and a long cigarette holder (with a fake cigarette, please, or your skin will be scary enough that you won’t need makeup five Halloweens from now).
Double Vision (via dope2111 on YouTube):
Okay, you’ll probably need to be a REALLY talented makeup artist to pull this one off. But if you can make it look convincing, you’ll have all your friends wondering if they’ve had a few too many drinks this Halloween.
Angelina Jolie (via Kandee Johnson on YouTube):
This one takes some serious skill, but the payoff is so, so worth it. Who wouldn’t want to look like Brad Pitt’s wife?
