Our Top Ten Halloween Looks

Love it or hate it, Halloween is sure great for one thing – and that’s for discovering true makeup artist talent. I mean, it’s one thing to be able to contour yourself into a Kardashian, but it’s next level to create a look that will send little kids running for the hills, while leaving adults wishing they had some grownup nappies on hand.

So who’s wowing us in this lead up to the scariest day of the year (if you don’t count the horror that is the Boxing Day sales…).

Now she may have said on her post she wasn’t thrilled with the look… but whatevs, we were!! This look from the amazing Sophie Garth is all at once cute as a button and a tad unnerving. We wouldn’t want to meet that Cheshire Cat in a dark alley!


Lions and tigers and bears – oh my!! Nothing to fear hear – the beasts would be running for cover if they saw this version of the Tin Man by Samantha Ebreo. It’s fierce! Running for cover or fawning all over her that is…


There are a fair few Harley Quinn looks floating around at the moment – but our favourite? This badass look from janetteaikenmua. She really does look like she’s stepped out of the pages of a comic… not that we’d want to run into her in real life, because that Harley Quinn is cray cray.


Who looks absolutely edible? Nikkifrenchmakeup that’s who! How amazing is this look – half Little Red Riding Hood, half The Big Bad Wolf. Naughty and nice. Good and evil. Sweet as a cupcake and severely hungry looking. All rolled into one fabulous package. Oh to be able to wangle makeup brushes like her.










Actually, no, we won’t link to it. We can’t. It’s actually that amazing/gross. But you can check it out here (if you dare!).

So clowns. Yep. They’re back. And they’re scarier than ever. When they’re not freaking out people by lurking in towns across the world, they’re being so evil as to attack poor unsuspecting humans (so not cool), and if they’re not doing that they’re making terrifying appearances on Instagram. This work by akhanartistry certainly captured our attention. The clown fear is real.


Always dreamed of releasing your inner mermaid? Well this look is doing exactly that… quite literally.


It’s not just the girls that get to have all the fun, the boys can get their faces gussied up too. Check out this fantastic Frankenstein look! The bolts in the neck!!


Holy moly. When clay masks go wrong!! How amazing is this look from nerissamakeup? It’s a total showstopper – and to think it uses something most of us have sitting in our beauty cabinets. Although we’d hate to think what wearing a clay mask on your face for a few hours could do to your skin. The horror could well end up being real!


Oh gosh, after all that horror we need something nice. Something relaxed. Something chilled. Something… frozen.


Oh, hey frostbite Elsa. Making a Disney princess freaky – now that takes talent.

So there you have it… our top ten Halloween looks. So which are your favourites? What are you not so hot on? And are you taking Halloween to the extreme this year? Upload your looks to the Photo Wall - we’d love to see them!

Can I release my inner mermaid because that is my favourite one. I've been terrified of clowns since Stephen King's It with Tim Curry as Pennywise.

30th October, 2016

Amazing! If I saw that clown one in real life though, I'd shhh ...

28th October, 2016

The clay one looks amazing. Her eyes!!

I'm not one to be scared of clowns, but that one is very frightening!!

27th October, 2016

I love Halloween. That clown picture is really gross and scary though.

I will not be celebrating this year but I think it is such a good opportunity to experiment and see the talent out there with this make up after all it is an art! love the one in the red hood cape and the one with cute ears. Amazing talent

27th October, 2016

I love the cute takes and coupled with a bit of originality on these looks. I do like the Chesire cat. The mermaid one, because mermaids. Then I like the Harley Quinn, Elsa and Red Riding Hood for putting a fresh spin on a popular look.

26th October, 2016

Such amazing talent, I wonder how long it took to put these amazing looks together.

26th October, 2016

EeK! Great work, but to be honest I don't like creepy things!

26th October, 2016

OMG I clicked the link and while pretty gross, that clown is the one that'll give me nightmares tonight!! Beyond terrifying :O These looks are all so amazing, seriously humbled to grace the list Kellie, shucks! Especially loving this original take on Harley Quinn amongst a sea of varying versions of her this year too.

Wowsers thwee are some real talent here & clicking that link to discover such real to life work while I do admire all the work I myself try hard to look nice so won't opt for any gruesome looks great picks though BR

The frozen Disney character has to be my fave! I have a weird obsession with seeing Disney characters a little twisted lol. These are all amazing however! Such incredible talent

I've never been big on scary looks, I usually do something fairly non scary if I dress up for halloween. From these looks I like the mermaid and half red riding hood half big bad wolf ones best.
