4 Unique Halloween Looks You Must Try This Year

Love it or hate it, but Halloween is here again! Whether or not you have a costume for the occasion, whether you know what to wear or not, you can still prepare yourself to celebrate it with a detailed makeup look.

Beauty enthusiasts and makeup artists showcase their creativity all over Facebook and Instagram every October. From easy DIY looks to complex ones with eerie effects, it’s all over the internet. While the famous skeleton, skull candy, and mermaid look with fishnets are common, there are tons of others you could try. Some require heavy makeup while others don’t.


Looking for something to stand out in this Halloween? Here are four unique looks to choose from this year.

1. Come Straight Out of a Wonder Woman Comic

Potentially one of the most popular costumes this year, the Wonder Woman-inspired look can be recreated by simply drawing lines across your face with a NYX Professional Make Up Epic Ink Eye Liner pen. Paint a golden crown on your face using the NYX Professional Makeup 3 Steps to Sculpt Face Sculpting Palette and give it a wrap with a siren-coloured NYX Professional Make Up Matte Lipstick.


2. Draw Giant Spiders on Your Face to Scare People

Give people a real scare! Give your eyes a smoky look to craft out spiders on each side of your face. Use a Palladio Eyeliner Pencil in shades of black, grey, dark green and sky blue to draw eight legs radiating out of each eye. To create an ombré effect and look bolder, outline your lips with a 64 True Red IsaDora Sculpting Lipliner and fill in with a lighter Amazonian shade of Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick. Shimmer the inner corner of your eye and you are ready to flaunt your creepy-crawly spider look!


3. Don the Vampire Look Without a Ton of Fake Blood

Parade yourself in an all-black attire and become a desirable picture-perfect vampire! A Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation with Comfort Serum in a shade which is lighter than you usually wear will create an eerie and morbid effect. Shade your eyelids black with an 850 Tuxedo Smoking Revlon Colorstay Creme Eyeshadow. Use a burgundy lip liner to draw lines running down your eyelids towards your cheeks. Colour your lips with the Deborah Milano Red Lipstick and use fake fangs to complete your getup.


4. Glitter and Unicorn Look

Those who are planning to sport the unicorn look this October should take inspiration from makeup artist Yara Debs. All you need to create the glitzy unicorn look is your everyday makeup, lots of glitter, a 256 gold-coloured Glam’s Makeup Face & Shade Highlighter Stick, and a bright and bold Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick. An adhesive-based L’Oreal Paris Infallible Mattifying Primer will ensure that your makeup sticks and keeps sparkling through the day.
