Want to look better than everyone else this Halloween? Of course you do! These makeup ideas will help…

 How can one turn a cute vegetable into something totally creepy? It’s all in the jagged edges and blacked-out mouth.

The Nun

Predicted to be one of the scariest movies of 2018, the nun is bound to be a popular choice come October. All you need is some creepy ass contact lenses, black and white face paint and a crucifix.


A classic, sh*t-your-pants option. Red contact lenses are a must and extra points if you paper mache that bone structure.

Oompa Loompa

A little less scary, but still allows you to go nuts with the face paint. NYX’s Slide On Pencil Eyeliner in Pure White (£6) is ideal for embellished brows and eyes. And if you don’t want to dye your hair green permanently, try Schwarzkopf LIVE Pastel Spray in Mint Green (£4.29).

Mad Hatter

The modern movie remake of Alice In Wonderland has given us gave us a whole new library of looks to choose from for Halloween. Our favourite? Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter. The red hair, wild brows and whimsical makeup is ideal for the those wanted to look pretty, but crazy.

David Bowie

Ever since the English singer’s death in 2016, his Aladdin Sane album cover has become a favourite to recreate.


The remake of 90s classic It sparked a whole new wave of creepy Pennywise costumes, which you can easily recreate with products already in your kit.

White Walker

Why go as Daenerys or Jon Snow when a White Walker gives you the opportunity to wear horns on your forehead?

Heidi Klum is without a doubt the queen of Halloween costumes. Just look at this Jessica Rabbit transformation. Check out how she did it here.

Black Panther

The Wakanda Forever symbol was showing up everywhere after the premiere of Marvel movie, Black Panther, earlier this year. And now the movie is inspiring some Wakanda makeup looks too.

Sugar Skull

A classic that crops up every year, but we particularly like this bedazzled version that defines the skull’s jawline and traces the sunken eyes.

A Handmaid

Not so skilled when it comes to makeup? Keep it parred back and eery by sweeping your hair under a white cap. Our bets on this for the most popular costume of 2018.

Or, take inspiration from Hailey Baldwin and party in pink with this Barbie girl look.
