Less than a week until Halloween and still not decided what you're going as? Don't panic! Whether you're going for something cute and simple or all out spooky this year, we've picked out some scarily good looks for you to copy, ranging from beginner to advanced.


Cute and colourful clown

This cute but playful circus clown look is easy to recreate using the products in your makeup bag. Use a mix of colourful eyeshadows and a black liquid eyeliner to match @beatbyrache's look, or mix it up by choosing your own colours. Finish your look off with some hair raising bows for the full cute but creepy effect.


Plastic doll

This daunting plastic doll look is both impressive and easy to replicate using a foundation shade slightly lighter than your skin tone and a white eyeliner to give that shiny effect. Add some colour and detail to the look, like @andradaad with some vibrant eyeliners and bold lips.



Subtle but striking, this black and yellow lip and eye matching makeup is the perfect party look to match any outfit. Create the hazardous look using a yellow and black liquid eyeliner and a black lipstick to draw your precise stripes and finish it off with your favourite lashes.


Scary pumpkin

Make sure you're the ultimate HalloQueen at the party with this incredible pumpkin makeup look. The truly horrifying look is created using the Morphe The James Charles Artistry Palette and some black face paint. Don't have face paints? No problem, sub it in for a black liquid liner that provides long-lasting wear and more precise application.


Sparkling cobwebs

Not a fan of the full coverage face paints? Add a touch of glam with this cute undereye cobweb look! Top your cobwebs with some embellishments such as gems or glitter and finish your look with your favourite lipstick.


Scary clown

A spooky season classic, we all love a scary clown look. @makeupbycharleybp is giving us serious IT vibes with the haunting red eyes and lips joined by fake but very frightening scarring. Create the look using a bold red and black eyeshadow and a matching red lipstick.
