We're here to guide you through a selection of approachable Halloween makeup looks that cater to various skill levels. So, grab your brushes and let's get started!

1. Elegant Cat Eye:
Level: Beginner

Embrace your inner feline with a classic and sophisticated cat eye look. All you need is a good quality black eyeliner and a steady hand. Start by drawing a thin line along your upper lash line and then extend it outwards to create a slight wing. For an added touch, draw a small triangle on your nose to mimic a cute cat nose. Finish with some whiskers on your cheeks using the eyeliner. Our Witchy Liner is perfect for the job-- choose the one with the Wing Stamp for the perfect cat eye, or the Heart Stamp for a cute cheek accent.

2. Fantasy Fairy:
Level: Intermediate

Bring a touch of fantasy to Halloween with a magical fairy makeup look. Start by creating a shimmery and iridescent base on your eyelids using pastel or bright colors. Add some glitter for that extra sparkle. Try any of our Glittergasm Chunky Glitter to achieve this look. Then, use eyeliner to draw delicate vines or swirls around your temples and cheeks. For a bright graphic liner, check out our Cake Wet Eyeliners, which come in six color duos. To complete the look, add a pair of false lashes and a soft lip color.

3. Spooky Skeleton:
Level: Intermediate

Transform into a spooky skeleton with this classic Halloween makeup look. Begin by applying white face paint or makeup as a base. Use black eyeliner or face paint to create hollow eyes and a nose cavity. Extend lines to mimic the look of cracked bones on your face and jawline. You can also add some shading to create a more realistic 3D effect. Finish by applying black lipstick to enhance the eerie vibe. Our Matte Eye Dusts in 23 and 24 are perfect to set your black and white face paint for a smudge proof night!

4. Enchanting Mermaid:
Level: Advanced

Dive into the world of enchantment by becoming a mesmerizing mermaid. Start with a base of blue and green eyeshadows on your eyelids. We suggest our Eye Dust in New Wave for that blue hue. Use liquid highlighter to create a radiant, wet look on your cheekbones and shoulders. Apply adhesive gems or sequins to mimic scales along your temples, cheeks, and collarbones. For an added touch, create a fishtail braid with colorful extensions.

5. Playful Pop Art Character:
Level: Advanced

Unleash your inner pop art icon with a playful and vibrant makeup look. Begin by applying a solid color to your face, such as bright yellow or blue. Try out our best-selling Electro Eyeshadow Palette for that pop-art look. Then, use black eyeliner to outline exaggerated features like your eyebrows, eyes, and lips. Fill in the outlined shapes with bold and contrasting colors. The key to nailing this look is to focus on clean lines and using a variety of colors to achieve that comic book effect. Our White Angle Liner Brush can help you achieve those crisp lines!
