Did you forget to pick up a costume? Us too.

Looking for some spooky inspiration for a makeup look on tonight? We’ve got you covered. 

It’s All Hallows Eve, and with all the excitement, we’ve only gone and forgot to pick up a costume!

If you’re in the same boat, have no fear, we’ve got some quick and easy Halloween makeup looks that you can do from the comfort of your own home. TikTok is jam-packed with talented makeup artists with incredible looks for this time of year, we’ve pulled some of our favourites together for you to enjoy.

You might need a quick trip to Boots to pick up some supplies, but all in all, they’re not too hard to follow and they’re great for pulling inspiration, we’re not all makeup artists, but we can try our best! 

Starting with a look from @….eshhh on TikTok this is the perfect jungle look. Match this with a green dress and you’ll be ready to go as a nature goddess.

Here is a tutorial to attempt a similar green smokey eye, you can start with a more simple green look like this, and then stick on some green vines and you’re ready to go! 

If you’re looking for something more subtle you can just focus on your eye makeup. In this clip, @caitlinmariemakeup shows us how to turn a classic smokey eye into a festive spider’s web.

This look is brilliant if you want to celebrate but not go all out. You can find some of the glitter to add some glam as Caitlin did here. 

The fortune teller costume is a classic one and @ciara_makeup has created a mystical masterpiece to pull it off. What adds to her look is the gorgeous face gems she’s added under her eyes.

Even if you haven’t got the skill for that insane eye look, adding these gems to your eyeshadow is sure to make it pop! Adding eye contacts as well gives the look a creepier vibe, you can pick these up in most Halloween shops and even in some Euro shops. 

Last year we saw a lot of Harley Quinn’s but this year is set to be the year of the Joker. If a full green wig and mountains of red face paint isn’t your gig, don’t worry @lordkeely has shown us how to even make the Joker look cute!
