lloweHalloween is one of my absolute favorite times of the year.  Since my birthday is on November 1st, I almost always had costume parties every year, growing up.  There is nothing more fun than dressing up and I love to see how elaborate the costumes have become over the years.  You don’t even need a full costume, if you have the skills to pull off some dope makeup.  Here are 5 of the scariest Halloween makeup tutorials I could find:

It’s that time of year when everyone is putting their last-minute Halloween costumes together and kids are getting ready to impress all of their friends around the neighborhood.  Some of these costumes may even be so elaborate that they need costume makeup to finish off the look.  But do you know just how unsafe Halloween makeup is?

The Best Halloween Makeup on Instagram

If there is one trend I have seen emerge this year, it is some special effects-style Halloween makeup… and I love it.  Halloween costume makeup is very trendy this year and also a creative way to dress up your Halloween costumes.  Note that it goes a little deeper than the “sugar skull,” which has been popular for the last few years.  I’ve searched high and low on Instagram to find some of the best, most creative looks this year.

Orange and Black Makeup for Halloween

by

In honor of the upcoming Halloween, I wanted to find some beautiful orange and black makeup to share with you all.  Well, I found this gem from Maryam Maquillage.  A “cut crease” is a very popular style of eyeshadow at the moment and I love the glitter on the lower lash line.

Maryam features a tutorial on her website for a “Halloween fortune teller” type costume.  However, I think this makeup stands out on its own.  If you are looking for classy yet bold Halloween eye makeup, then look no further.

X-Out Your Eyes for Halloween

Are you looking for a really cool, original way to wear your makeup for Halloween this year?  Then you should X-out your eyes!

If you are looking for a cool and original way to do your makeup for Halloween this year, just X-out your eyes! This fun look, inspired by Frank Iero, is totally fun!

Now X-Out Your Eyes:

This is one of my favorite Halloween looks.  It’s pretty basic and you can wear it with any outfit.  To create this look, first, just do your makeup however you normally wear it.  Then, all you have to do is simply paint X’s over your eyes with eyeliner or other black costume makeup.  Besides that, you can wear your makeup however you want, although I did add some black lipstick to complete the look.

Do keep in mind that I stole this look from My Chemical Romance’s Frank Iero.  He shades his eyes with red eyeshadow before painting the X’s on.
