@youngcouture Violet, your turning VIOLET!!! #halloween #halloweenmakeup #makeup #fyp original sound - Julian Burzynski
This look is one for movie lovers. If you were, or still are, a big fan of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this look is perfect for you. It incorporates a simple, blue, metallic shade on the nose to simulate the character Violet Bureguard when she turns into a blueberry. You can add some colors to the look by adding a pink shimmer on the eye. To top it off, chewing gum is a must to complete the look.
@dmarinabeauty Replying to @hidingfrom_danna Easy pirate makeup for Halloween!! lmk what you’d like to see next #piratemakeup #easyhalloweenmakeup #halloweenmakeup #makeuptutorial #easypiratemakeup Somebodys Watching Me x She Knows - ALTÉGO
You may not be the best at makeup, and that’s perfectly okay. This look is minimal effort and perfect for those trying to pull something together last minute. This pirate look is great if you can master the art of a flawless base foundation and dark red lip. The look is simple with a fluttery false lash and a sultry red lip. If you try it out, be sure to complete the look with your favorite pirate boots.

This is another one for the movie fanatics. Corpse Bride is another iconic Halloween staple. There’s no better way to incorporate the spirit of Halloween than with this recognizable character. All you need is slight knowledge of shadows on the face and the perfect shades of blue. Finish off the look with a blue wig, some black details on the eyes and nose, and you can't forget a crown!

Time to get messy! Grab your favorite blood-red eye shadow, scrape a bit into a bottle cap and mix it with your favorite facial serum. Give that a good whisk, then dip a toothbrush into the concoction and splatter yourself all over the face. Make sure you do this somewhere that won't mind the mess!
@sandijarquin Something more colorful #diadelosmuertos #sugarskull #makeup #fyp #fy #parati #skullmakeup #halloweenmakeup Un Poco Loco - Anthony Gonzalez & Gael García Bernal
Here’s another take on a skull, one which can be dressed up with some colorful flowers and turned into a Sugar Skull a la Mexico’s Dias De Los Muertos celebrations. Sure, it's going to take some time and a steady hand, but folks will marvel at this showstopping look. Use whatever colors make you happiest, and have fun with it.
@_lilheat_ Look #2 who should I try next? #halloweenmakeup #halloweencostume #halloween #makeuptutorial #styleideas #styleideas #harleyquinn #harleyquinnmakeup thank you all for use my sound Harley - cosplaydave
Gosh, Mr. J. Who knew pulling off the great Harley Quinn was so easy? This is all about a good red and blue, and a bit of sparkle makes the eyes really pop. Don't be afraid to smudge that lipstick. You've got to look a bit unhinged to capture this beauty.

You want scary? We'll give you scary! Grab a bit of liquid latex and lather it onto the neck. Next, grab some red eye shadows in various colors and paint them on that base coat. Use a sponge with some red lipstick to create the chaotic dribble dried-off effect, and add wet gloss to give it that spooky shimmer and shine.
Now that you're looking absolutely fabulous in the face, try your hand at one of our favorite Halloween nail art designs from TikTok, or cheers to your handywork with one of these spooky cocktail recipes.
