Forget latte makeup, blueberry milk, pumpkin spice and all things nice. Evenings are getting cooler and there’s a tingle in the air as the spookiest night of the year approaches. For beauty girlies around the world, Halloween is our time to shine, as – armed with our makeup bags – we throw off constraints and play out our wildest fantasies in front of the mirror.

So, if you’re in need of some Halloween makeup inspo, GRAZIA has you covered. These killer Halloween makeup looks are bound to go down a treat (or trick), courtesy of TikTok, the catwalk and a celeb or two. And they’re perfect to rock with one of these Halloween nail looks.

Think Pink

We were all Barbie girls in a Barbie world this summer as #barbiecore beauty unleashed a tsunami of bubblegum pink and baby blue: and it’s still going strong. To give the trend a twist (literally), make like Sydney Sweeney and go for an 80s-style perm paired with a glossy lip and a pop of blue eyeshadow. Get the look with Babyliss Pro’s digital curling iron and a lot of dry shampoo.

Incy Wincy Spider

Everyone’s favourite bad b*tch Doja Cat took the recent TikTok spider lash trend and showed us how it’s done at this year’s VMAs. Paired with scattered rhinestones – like morning dew bespangling a cobweb – and a 1930s-esque skinny brow à la Marlene Dietrich, it was a little bit creepy-crawly, a little bit cabaret. Make like Doja and get the look with a pair of Eyelure Wild and Wispy falsies and lashings of mascara.

Keepin’ It Foxy

A smoky eye, a moody lip – the immortal #softgoth look is eerie, but elevated. Think Jenna Ortega, whose turn as Wednesday Addams sparked the trend. Julia Fox elevates her statement dark lip with a gloss to soften things up and keep it glam. Try Isamaya Beauty’s Waterbalm lipstick in the shade Vanity to cop the look.

Bald Like Bella

Wigs are so ’22. First Kim K braves a buzzcut, then Bella goes bald (and naked) in Marc Jacobs’s AI-inspired AW23 campaign. Recreate with a metallic eye and a Mehron bald capHere’s a tutorial for first-timers.

If the above ideas are a touch too subtle and you’re after something a little bit gory and a little bit glitzy, try this Halloween makeup look from @babyleska, which features wire wool, gems and a whole lot of fake blood. Not forgetting a bold red power pout. Try MAC’s Ruby Woo – it’s the reddest red we know.
