As Halloween creeps up for 2020, we’re forced to take a slightly different approach to normal. Despite some serious cons (like a short Halloween party guest list), there are also some unexpected pros…like documenting your neck-up costume for some serious social media clout.
But seriously, Halloween is just around the corner, and while it may look a little different this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate from the comfort of your own home, followed by your favourite horror movie or socially distanced with your nearest and dearest.
It may have been a while since you’ve put on a full face of makeup, but we’re here to help. So, to get your creative juices flowing here is the ultimate list of Halloween makeup looks to try for yourself this spooky season.
Be Inspired By Disney
Embrace your inner child and spend this Halloween disguised as your favourite Disney character. With so many to choose from you are bound to find one to transform into for the night!
Rep Your Star Sign
We are currently smack bang in the middle of a Mercury retrograde which only means one thing – chaos! Honestly, we don’t know how much more chaos we can take this year, that being said let’s harness this energy & turn it into a creative makeup look inspired by your star sign.
Get Creative With Fake Blood
Minimal effort, maximum effect. If you’re short on time, adding some fake blood to any look is a perfect, yet simple way to up your makeup game this Halloween.
Embrace Your Inner Potterhead
If you’ve found yourself on the Harry Potter side of TikTok recently, put that time to good use and let it influence your makeup look. Top it off with a black cardigan and a tie the colour of your favourite Hogwarts house and you’re good to go.
Be One With Nature
If you are leaning towards cute rather than creepy this year, try taking inspiration from the natural world. Whether you find yourself channeling the weather, a floral arrangement or your favourite animal, allow yourself to get creative.
Keep It Simple
Unfortunately we can’t all be James Charles’ talented when it comes to makeup , but that doesn’t mean you have to take a back seat this Halloween. Try your hand at something a little bit simpler, while still looking super cute and in-character.

Take A Walk On The Evil Side
We all love a good guy, but what better time to channel your dark side than Halloween? This year, draw inspiration from the characters you feared growing up and transform yourself into your favourite villain.
I’m A Skeleton, Duh.
A classic, for good reason – you simply can’t go wrong with a skeleton look. Whether you’d rather go all out, or opt for a more low-key option, there is plenty of inspiration to get you started.
