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.
