Best Halloween makeup looks
If you're looking for a relatively simple look, this spooky makeup idea is perfect – you only need to complete one eye, after all.
This look has been created with every day makeup essentials, like eyeliner. Start as you would, when creating a regular, dark smoky eye; your eyelid will act as the spider's body – just add legs.
A little white cobweb can be drawn to further enhance the look and using white eyeliner can also help you with shading some areas, to make the critter look more 3D.

This Halloween look, seems quite complex but it actually fairly simple – with only shades of blue to focus on in its entirety.
Paint your whole face a light shade of blue, one you've evenly applied the base you can go in and draw the darker blue lines to complete. Once your face paint has dried, you can go over important parts of your face (nose, chin etc) with your regular highlighter, for a cute and out of this world glow.
If you want to be really inventive, instead of using white eyeliner you could mix talcon powder and water together, so it's almost a paste consistency – using a cotton swap you can use the mixture to create the little white spots.

3. Evil Bunny
This bunny, isn't the bunny you want to see early for the tea party.
This look requires a little more time than the others so far, depending on how intricate you'd like it to look. The base is mostly white face paint, darkened in some areas to give the face more definition.
The bunny ears are pristine white, so to make the look more authentic – dirty them up a little, splash fake bloody on them to make your bunny look like it's been through the wars.

The trick with this look is to slowly build up the colours to create a lifelike 'fur' look, instead of a flat 2D feel.
The yellow contact lenses will truly complete the look, in an effortlessly spooky way.

6. Corpse Bride
Inspired by the look seen on classic Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, to achieve the look in its entirety is pretty simple – but to execute the look perfectly this is one for the pro's.
Start by outlining two large, black circles as high up as your brow bone and finishing just where your eye sockets line up with your nose. These black circles can then be filled with white paint (don't forget to cover your real eye in white too).
Once you've covered the rest of your face in blue paint, you can work on defining parts of your face with the black paint. Add your wig and crown and you're as good as dead.
